Florida Gators track and field wraps up 69th Pepsi Florida Relays

The Gators had one victory on Saturday, the women's sprint medley relay team. But those Gators broke a school record.


Florida Gators track and field ended the 69th Pepsi Florida Relays with a bang Saturday night with a victory in the women's sprint medley relay. It was the Gators' only victory of the day, but the wait was well worth it. The relay team won the event with a time of 4:43.62 seconds. The Gators almost claimed victory in both the men's and women's 4x400m and 4x800m relays, but all four teams finished in second-place.

The women's 4x400m relay team finished with a school record time of 3:27.43s but that time obviously wasn't quite good enough for first. Their 4x800m team finished with a time of 8:30.15s. That time wasn't a record, but it will continue to show the country that the Gators' women's sprints are at the top of their game.

The men's 4x400m relay team finished in second with a time of 3:04.89s and the 4x800m team finished with a time of 7:22.41s. The women's shuttle hurdle relay team was the Gators' main disappointment on Saturday as they received a DNF.

The only other finisher of note for the Gators was Jayla Bostic, who set a personal record in the women's hammer throw with a best distance of 59.17m.

Next up for the Gators is the Seminole Invite in Tallahassee on April 12th and 13th.
