Florida Gators Track And Field Teams Are Chasing History

The Florida Gators continue to flex their muscles across the entire athletic department. This week both the Florida men’s and women’s track teams are ranked No. 1, marking the first time a school has occupied both of the top spots since Texas A&M in 2011. It’s the first No. 1 ranking for the women’s track team since 2008.

The women’s team overtook the top spot from the Texas Longhorns with a ranking score of 380.68, while the men continued to pace the nation with a 328.42.

While it’s no indication of how the Gators’ season will end, the Aggies did claim both national titles in 2011, which could be a good omen for the Orange and Blue.

Following is a look at the men’s and women’s top 25 rankings with five weeks to go until the NCAA Championship draw.
