Florida red shirt freshman Jeremy Postin recorded a personal-best toss in the men's weight throw Friday to lead the Gator track and field teams on the opening day of the Kentucky Invitational at E.J. Nutter Fieldhouse.
Postin charted a career-best toss of 17.64m/57-10.50 to place eighth in the men's weight throw on a light day that featured just four Florida athletes in competition.
Sophomore multi-event athlete Gray Horn was 12th in the men's high jump with a leap of 1.94m/6-4.25. Daniela Griffin and Jenicia McFadden rounded out the day by participating in the women's triple jump event.
Men's Tennis: The team saw its first action of the spring, sending three singles competitors and three doubles pairs into the Round of 16 at the SEC Indoor Championships.
Junior No. 7 Alexandre Lacroix, sophomore Joey Burkhardt and freshman Sekou Bangoura Jr. will be among the final 16 in the singles draw, all advancing without dropping a set. In doubles action, Bangoura and Burkhardt advanced along with Billy Federhofer and Bob Van Overbeek, both posting wins in their opener on Friday. Antoine Benneteau and Lacroix, the No. 10 tandem in the nation, received a first-round bye in the doubles draw.
Women's Tennis: Senior Anastasia Revzina highlighted the Gators' first day of play at the Freeman Memorial Championships, winning a pair of singles matches, as well as one doubles match in quick fashion.
