    Gators Win Two Titles, Post Two Collegiate All-Time Top 10 Performances
    Grant Holloway repeated as the 60 hurdles champion, while Clayton Brown surprised with the triple jump title
    By Zach Dirlam UF

    COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Florida captured a pair of individual titles and posted two times and marks that rank on the collegiate all-time top 10, as it closed the SEC Indoor Championships third in the men's standings and sixth on the women's side.

    The first of two titles came from sophomore Grant Holloway, who repeated as the 60-meter hurdles champion. Holloway joined Alabama's Ron Bramlett (2001-02) and Gator Great Eddie Lovett (2011-14) as the only other men in history to win consecutive SEC 60 hurdles crowns. The Chesapeake, Va., native's time of 7.53 seconds broke Gilliam Indoor Track Stadium's facility record as well.

    HEARING OUT (COACH) HOLLOWAY
    Head coach Mike Holloway on Grant Holloway repeating as SEC 60 hurdles champion Sunday…
    "That was a clean run. He just needed to be the SEC champion. We're not coming in here and trying to break the collegiate record or anything like that; we've done that. From this point on, it's just about winning the race and putting up those 10 points for the Gators.

    Coach Holloway on Clayton Brown's SEC triple jump title…
    "Wow. On the runway, it's your last jump, you're not in the NCAA meet, and not only does he win the meet but he jumps far enough to get to the NCAA meet. We're excited about that as well. Very proud of Clayton."

    It was kind of a disappointment. But I think the SEC is the best conference in Track so third isn't bad.
