The Florida Gators only had one (men's) athlete competing on the first day of the SEC Indoor Championships in Lexington, Kentucky. But that one athlete certainly made the most of it.
Gray Horn leads the heptathlon after four events.
Through those four events, Horn currently has amassed 3,418 points. Cory Holman of Georgia, who currently sits in second place has 3,311 points through the same events. Behind Holman, are Kevin Lazas and Gunnar Nixon of Arkansas and Garrett Scantling of Georgia. While the Gators probably won't get the most points team-wise in the heptathlon, there is no shame in claiming another individual SEC Championship. (Hopefully.)
Horn finished first in the long jump with a distance 7.57m. He also finished second in the 60m dash and the shot put with a time of 6.96s and a distance of 13.70m respectively. In the high jump however, Horn finished with in a tie for second place with a height of 2.06m with Nixon of Arkansas.
Horn will finish his quest to win the heptathlon tomorrow, with the 60m hurdles, pole vault and 1,000m run.
