David’s NCAA Lead, Gators’ Speedy Relays Cap Strong Pepsi Florida Relays Showing
GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Florida senior Yanis David picked up right where she left off indoors in her signature event, and the Gators’ trio of relay teams threw down times that rank in the top three nationally Saturday, the third and final day of the Pepsi Florida Relays.
David posted a pair of 14-meter triple jumps (one of which was wind-legal), with her NCAA-leading mark being a wind-aided 14.05 meters (46 feet, 1.25 inches). The indoor national champion was the top collegiate finisher in a competition that produced the nation’s top two marks, and she finished 37 centimeters (1 foot, 2.5 inches) ahead of the next-best collegian.
The men’s 4×100 relay team of junior Raymond Ekevwo, sophomore Hakim Sani Brown, junior Grant Holloway, and senior Ryan Clark clocked the nation’s third-fastest time (38.69 seconds) and missed the program’s All-Time Top 10 list by one hundredth of a second. The quartet shaved five hundredths off last week’s season-opening time.
