    With two events left, it looks like the men have an uncatchable lead. So far, Grant Holloway has 26 points in three events with the 4X400 relay coming up. He has a chance to set the meet record for most individual points. This is a great meet. Is anyone else out there watching?

    It's official! The University of Florida men's track and field team is the 2019 NCAA indoor national champion. Grant Holloway ended up with 27.5 individual points. The women did well also, finishing sixth. Great meet. Looks like I have to buy a new T-shirt.

    Gators Repeat as NCAA Indoor Champions, Win Three Individual Titles
    Zach Dirlam UF
    Florida lapped the field and ran away with the men's team title Saturday in BirminghamBIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Behind a barrage of Saturday scoring efforts and one of the greatest single-session performances in the sport's history from Grant Holloway, Florida's men successfully defended its NCAA Indoor Championships team title. For the women, senior Yanis David's first career national title led the Gators to a sixth-place finish.
    Florida Men's Track & Field All-Time NCAA Championships
    • Indoor (5) – 2010, 2011, 2012, 2018, 2019
    • Outdoor (4) – 2012, 2013, 2016, 2017
    Notables from an Active Dynasty
    • This is Florida's fifth men's team title at NCAA Indoor Championships since 2010, two more than any other Division I program in that span. The Gators' five titles are also the most since 2003, when head coach Mike Holloway took over the men's program.
    • Adding in the four outdoor national titles, Florida's nine team titles at NCAA Championships since 2010 lead all of Division I by four titles. The only other programs to win multiple national titles within that span are Oregon (five) and Texas A&M (four).
    • Florida's nine overall national titles are also four more than any other program has won since 2003. Only Arkansas, Oregon, and Texas A&M (five apiece) have more than two in that time frame.
    Holloway's Historic Night
    • Won the hurdles title with a time of 7.35 seconds, breaking the American record of 7.36 held by Greg Foster (1987), Allen Johnson (2004), and Terrence Trammell (2010).

    the Gators have finished either first or second in the indoor national championships 8 of the past 10 years (and 9 of the past 11). Absolutely incredible run by Holloway's squads.

    absolutely a terrific 'world class' coach, he quietly goes about his job without a lot of notoriety in Gvl or the SEC and amasses trophy after trophy
