While most of Gator Nation was locked into Florida’s Final Four trip over the weekend, there was another elite squad representing the Orange and Blue in action. The men’s outdoor track and field team showed out at the 2014 Pepsi Florida Relays, taking over the No. 1 spot in the USTFCCA rankings.
One of the more impressive events for UF was the 4×400 relay. The Gators set a school record with a time of 2:59.73, which was also good for second in NCAA history and is currently the world leader. LSU holds the record with a time of 2:59.59, set in 2005.
The unofficial splits are as follows:
45.82 Najee Glass
45.30 Hugh Graham Jr.
44.77 Dedric Dukes
43.84 Arman Hall
Following is the top 25 from the first official in-season rankings of the year:
