Gators’ NCAA Leads, Numerous Top 10s Heat Up Pepsi Florida Relays

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Florida senior quarter-miler Sharrika Barnett and junior all-around sensation Grant Holloway threw down NCAA-leading times, while the Gators tacked on another nine times and marks that rank in the top 10 nationally on the Pepsi Florida Relays’ penultimate day.
