Florida Gators take home five titles after first-day of 69th Pepsi Florida Relays

@GZTrackField

The Gators stormed out of the starting blocks in the first day of collegiate action at the 2013 Florida Relays.

A total of five Florida Gators won individual titles Friday at the 2013 Pepsi Florida Relays in a meet that is the second test of the outdoor for the Gators track and field teams. Taylor Burke, Marija Vucenovic, Dedric Dukes, Sean Obinwa and Mark Parrish all took home victories in their respective events and some of them joined the record books at history Percy Beard Track.

On the women's side, Burke won the high jump with a best jump of 1.76m and Vucenovic won the javelin with a best distance of 55.43m. As for the men, Dukes won the 200m dash with a time of 20.38s (wind aided), Obinwa won the 800m with a personal best time of 1:47.66s and Parrish took home the 3,000m steeplechase with a time of 8:42.33s.

You can view the entire day-two results at the Florida Relays headquarters at GatorZone, including all of the high school results that have occurred as well.

Speaking of the meet headquarters, the official headquarters for the meet is still in the same location as it was yesterday, despite some technical difficulties. GatorZone has also made available heat sheets for the meet that are located here (field events) and here (running events). Because it's getting popular, the official hashtag for the Florida Relays is #FLRelays, so you have that option if Twitter is your thing.

Live video of the meet is free (if you're a FloTrack Pro member) courtesy of FloTrack. The official timer of the meet will be Delta Timing and they've webpages up where you can view things a little differently than you could at Flash Results.

As was the case yesterday, the collegiate action begins today at 10:00 a.m. ET and will continue on until the conclusion of events which is expected to be around 8:00 p.m. ET. We'll have a full recap up of today's events either late tonight or Sunday morning.

For a bit on the history of the meet you can read the GatorZone piece from this year about the meet or head back to the meet headquarters page linked above and just scroll down until you see the history section. It's quite the impressive story.
