    Field Events, Holloway and Vedel Shine as Gators Shake Off Rust
    "It was a meet where I got a chance to see where we are so we can build from this point going forward." --Mike Holloway

    CLEMSON, S.C. – University of Florida track and field opened its 2018 campaign Saturday afternoon at Clemson University's Orange & Purple Classic, and a number of Gators turned in standout performances.
    Freshman quarter-miler Benjamin Lobo Vedel tied teammate Grant Holloway for the fourth-fastest 300 meters time in collegiate history, finishing his first career race in 32.80 seconds. Vedel, a native of Denmark, set a national record (previously 33.07 outdoors), in addition to tying Holloway's school and facility records. Holloway ran 32.80 at this same meet last season.
    Speaking of Holloway, the sophomore won the 60-meter hurdles with the second-fastest time in the nation (7.69). The Virginian is the reigning SEC and NCAA 60 hurdles champion.
    Florida's other big winners Saturday were throwers Lloydricia Cameron and AJ McFarland. Cameron won the shot put with the fourth-best throw of her career (17.32 meters / 56 feet, 10 inches), while McFarland won the weight throw with the second-best throw of his career (21.24 meters).
