SEC Indoor Championships: Gators men in second, women third after Day 2

The Florida Gators men's and women's track teams have some ground to make up entering the final day of competition on Sunday as the men currently sit in second place (behind Arkansas) and the women are in third (also behind Arkansas).

The Florida Gators track and field teams are in prime position to take home the team titles at the 2013 SEC Indoor Championships after a great second-day of competition. Athletes Marquis Dendy and David Triassi took home SEC Championships in the long jump and weight throw respectively as the men's team currently sits in second-place overall 18 points behind the Arkansas Razorbacks.

As the majority of the field event finals are over and the running finals begin, the Gators need to secure as many points as possible and have the Razorbacks stumble in a few events to have a shot at the team title. That could easily happen as Dedric Dukes, Hugh Graham Jr., Eddie Lovett and Mark Parrish are among the Gators who can win SEC Championships in their respective finals and score as many points possible for the Gators as a team.

However, the women's team faces a slightly more difficult task. They currently sit in third-place, 9.5 points behind first-place Arkansas and 0.5 points behind Georgia. While closer in points, the women face a tougher challenge as today's events place into the hand of Arkansas, Georgia and fifth-place LSU more than they do for the Gators.

After five events, the women's standings:

  • 1) Arkansas - 37 points
  • 2) Georgia - 28 points
  • 3) Florida - 27.50 points
  • 4) Kentucky - 15 points
  • 5) LSU - 13 points

After five events, the men's standings:

  • 1) Arkansas - 52 points
  • 2) Florida - 34 points
  • 3) Georgia - 27 points
  • 4) Alabama - 17 points
  • 5) Mississippi, Missouri and Texas A&M - 13 points
