The Florida men’s and women’s track and field teams recorded six first-place finishes on Sunday at the 2012 Gator Invite, held at the Stephen C. O’Connell Center. Gator Country was there to capture the action in this exclusive photo gallery.
The Gators were led by junior thrower Jeremy Postin, who set a new Florida record in the weight throw with a personal-best mark of 21.31m/69-11.
In the women’s weight throw, senior Fidela James took first for the Gators with a toss of 19.11m/62-8.50. James also turned in a solid performance in the shot put, finishing second with a throw of 15.08m/49-5.75. Senior Keely Medeiros won the shot put title on Sunday with a throw of 15.67m/51-5.00.
Freshman jumper Marquis Dendy won the first event of his young career, winning the men’s long jump with a leap of 7.20m/23-7.50. Sophomore Stipe Zunic recorded a toss of 16.40m/53-9.75 to claim first place in the shot put.
A major highlight for UF was the performance of freshman jumper Taylor Burke, who moved to fourth all-time at Florida with a jump of 1.79m/5-10.50, good for first on the afternoon. Burke is also the starting goalkeeper for the Florida soccer team.
