    The trio of Yanis David, Grant Holloway, and head coach Mike Holloway added some more hardware to their respective collections.
    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Florida senior Yanis David, junior Grant Holloway, and head coach Mike Holloway were once again recognized for standout indoor seasons, this time by the Southeastern Conference, which announced its individual awards Wednesday.

    David was named SEC Women's Indoor Field Athlete of the Year, Holloway was voted SEC Men's Indoor Runner of the Year, and Coach Holloway was tabbed SEC Men's Indoor Coach of the Year. The three previously earned the same awards via the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association, within the South Region.

    David became the fourth woman in history to sweep the horizontal jumps titles at SEC Indoor Championships, tying for the Cliff Harper Trophy (individual high points award) in the process. The Lamentin, Guadeloupe native is also the only woman ranked in the top 10 nationally in both horizontal jumps. David is the NCAA leader in the triple jump and ranks second nationally in the long jump, with both her season-best marks coming in her SEC Indoors wins.
