Demps wins in 9.96; Kevkhishvili repeats

EUGENE, Ore. — Seven other runners found out Friday night what Florida’s football opponents have found out in the two seasons Jeff Demps has been carrying the pigskin for Urban Meyer’s Gators.

If Demps gets ahead of you, there’s no catching him.

Demps, a sophomore from Winter Garden and South Lake High School, ran the best collegiate 100 meters in the country this year, breaking the 10-second barrier with his 9.96 clocking (with +2.5 wind) in the final of the men’s event at the NCAA Division I Outdoor Track and Field Championships at Hayward Field on the campus of the University of Oregon.

Meanwhile, the women in the shot put competition learned once again that they can not catch Mariam Kevkhishvili. The Florida senior from the Republic of Georgia captured her second straight NCAA outdoors competition to go with three NCAA indoors crowns.

“I am very, very pleased with how we performed today,” Florida head coach Mike Holloway said. “It all started with Mariam (Kevkhishvili) winning her fifth NCAA title. It’s not always easy to come in as the favorite, but she did a great job today. I am especially proud of Jeff (Demps). We had a plan, he stuck to it and to win the NCAA 100-meter title by that kind of a margin is a big accomplishment.”

Demps, who won the NCAA 60 meters indoors and the SEC 100 this spring, finished 13 hundredths of a second ahead of Rondel Sorrillo of Kentucky, who was the top seed in the event. It’s the first 100-meter title for Florida since Bernard Williams won the event in 2000. Demps’ time would have been a new school record had the race not been heavily wind-aided. It also marked the seventh time in the last 10 years that the 100-meter champion has come from the SEC.

“It was a great race today,” Demps said. “I executed well and came out with the win. I know my team needed the points and I just came out to get the 10 points to try to help us win the team title.”

The 10 points Demps earned with the victory moved the Florida men’s team into solo second behind Texas A&M with the meet ending Saturday. Florida is attempting to add the men’s outdoor team title to the indoor title it won in March. The Aggies have 38 points, Florida has 28 and Southern California is third with 26.5 points. The Gators got five points when senior Calvin Smith finished fourth in the 400 meters final.

Oregon tops the women’s standings with 30 points, Iowa State is second with 28 and Florida has moved up to seventh with 16 points following Kevkhishvili’s victory. She became just the second athlete in NCAA history to claim five women’s shot put national championships (indoors and outdoors combined). She won Friday with a toss of 59 feet, 5 inches, tying the women’s school record with five NCAA Championships (any event). Candice Scott also had five NCAA individual championships during her Gator career.

“I am happy to win my fifth NCAA title,” Kevkhishvili said. “I wasn’t really happy with my throw, but I’m glad I was able to score 10 points and help my team today.”

Kevkhishvili is just the second woman in NCAA history to claim both the NCAA indoor and outdoor women’s shot put titles in back-to-back seasons, joining Regina Cavanaugh of Rice who accomplished the feat in 1985 and 1986. Kevkhishvili concludes her senior campaign by going a perfect 13-for-13 against all competitions and she did not lose a competition to a collegiate competitor (indoors or outdoors) in her final two seasons.

“It was the right way for Mariam to finish off her Gator career,” said associate head coach/throws Steve Lemke. “She had such a great college career and it would have been neat to see what she really would have been able to accomplish if she had more competition during the year. To go undefeated her last two collegiate seasons is very impressive and we are really going to miss her.”

Kevkhishvili’s teammates, sophomores Keely Medeiros of Brazil and Fidela James of Jacksonville, also competed in the shot put. Medeiros finished ninth with a throw of 53 feet, 1.5 inches, while James was 23rd with a toss of 48 feet, 10.25 inches.

Calvin Smith, a senior from Lutz, earned his school-record 17th career All-America honor (both indoors and outdoors) with his fourth-place finish in the 400. Smith recorded a time of 45.37 seconds. Sophomore Gray Horn of Waynesfield, Ohio, finished 15th in the decathlon with a final score of 7,262.

“I’m very happy with Calvin for sticking in there and getting a big five points for the team,” Holloway said. “Now it’s on to (Saturday) and it should be a lot of fun.”

The Gator men are attempting to add the NCAA outdoors team title to the indoors team title they won in March. The final day of the NCAA Outdoor Championships begins at 12:30 p.m. and will be televised on CBS from 1-3 p.m. ET.

EUGENE, Ore. — Seven other runners found out Friday night what Florida’s football opponents have found out in the two seasons Jeff Demps has been carrying the pigskin for Urban Meyer’s Gators.

If Demps gets ahead of you, there’s no catching him.

Demps, a sophomore from Winter Garden and South Lake High School, ran the best collegiate 100 meters in the country this year, breaking the 10-second barrier with his 9.96 clocking (with +2.5 wind) in the final of the men’s event at the NCAA Division I Outdoor Track and Field Championships at Hayward Field on the campus of the University of Oregon.

Meanwhile, the women in the shot put competition learned once again that they can not catch Mariam Kevkhishvili. The Florida senior from the Republic of Georgia captured her second straight NCAA outdoors competition to go with three NCAA indoors crowns.

“I am very, very pleased with how we performed today,” Florida head coach Mike Holloway said. “It all started with Mariam (Kevkhishvili) winning her fifth NCAA title. It’s not always easy to come in as the favorite, but she did a great job today. I am especially proud of Jeff (Demps). We had a plan, he stuck to it and to win the NCAA 100-meter title by that kind of a margin is a big accomplishment.”

Demps, who won the NCAA 60 meters indoors and the SEC 100 this spring, finished 13 hundredths of a second ahead of Rondel Sorrillo of Kentucky, who was the top seed in the event. It’s the first 100-meter title for Florida since Bernard Williams won the event in 2000. Demps’ time would have been a new school record had the race not been heavily wind-aided. It also marked the seventh time in the last 10 years that the 100-meter champion has come from the SEC.

“It was a great race today,” Demps said. “I executed well and came out with the win. I know my team needed the points and I just came out to get the 10 points to try to help us win the team title.”

The 10 points Demps earned with the victory moved the Florida men’s team into solo second behind Texas A&M with the meet ending Saturday. Florida is attempting to add the men’s outdoor team title to the indoor title it won in March. The Aggies have 38 points, Florida has 28 and Southern California is third with 26.5 points. The Gators got five points when senior Calvin Smith finished fourth in the 400 meters final.

Oregon tops the women’s standings with 30 points, Iowa State is second with 28 and Florida has moved up to seventh with 16 points following Kevkhishvili’s victory. She became just the second athlete in NCAA history to claim five women’s shot put national championships (indoors and outdoors combined). She won Friday with a toss of 59 feet, 5 inches, tying the women’s school record with five NCAA Championships (any event). Candice Scott also had five NCAA individual championships during her Gator career.

“I am happy to win my fifth NCAA title,” Kevkhishvili said. “I wasn’t really happy with my throw, but I’m glad I was able to score 10 points and help my team today.”

Kevkhishvili is just the second woman in NCAA history to claim both the NCAA indoor and outdoor women’s shot put titles in back-to-back seasons, joining Regina Cavanaugh of Rice who accomplished the feat in 1985 and 1986. Kevkhishvili concludes her senior campaign by going a perfect 13-for-13 against all competitions and she did not lose a competition to a collegiate competitor (indoors or outdoors) in her final two seasons.

“It was the right way for Mariam to finish off her Gator career,” said associate head coach/throws Steve Lemke. “She had such a great college career and it would have been neat to see what she really would have been able to accomplish if she had more competition during the year. To go undefeated her last two collegiate seasons is very impressive and we are really going to miss her.”

Kevkhishvili’s teammates, sophomores Keely Medeiros of Brazil and Fidela James of Jacksonville, also competed in the shot put. Medeiros finished ninth with a throw of 53 feet, 1.5 inches, while James was 23rd with a toss of 48 feet, 10.25 inches.

Calvin Smith, a senior from Lutz, earned his school-record 17th career All-America honor (both indoors and outdoors) with his fourth-place finish in the 400. Smith recorded a time of 45.37 seconds. Sophomore Gray Horn of Waynesfield, Ohio, finished 15th in the decathlon with a final score of 7,262.

“I’m very happy with Calvin for sticking in there and getting a big five points for the team,” Holloway said. “Now it’s on to (Saturday) and it should be a lot of fun.”

The Gator men are attempting to add the NCAA outdoors team title to the indoors team title they won in March. The final day of the NCAA Outdoor Championships begins at 12:30 p.m. and will be televised on CBS from 1-3 p.m. ET.
