Florida's Arman Hall, Cory McGee, Rebekah Greene and coach Mike Holloway received SEC Indoor Track and Field honors Friday, as determined by a vote of the league's head coaches.

Hall was named Men’s Runner of the Year, after tying for the Cliff Harper Trophy at the SEC Indoor Championships, contributing 20 points and leading his team to a runner-up finish. He was the SEC Champion in the men’s 200-meters, while his prelim mark and career-best time of 20.59 is second-fastest in the country and SEC, next to UF teammate Dedric Dukes, and sixth-fastest in the world. Hall also finished second in the 400m with a career-best time of 45.28, second-fastest in the country and third-fastest in the world. He anchored the men’s 4x400-meter relay to a second-place finish with a new school record of 3:03.50, which was under the existing SEC, facility and collegiate records and is now the second-fastest collegiate 4x400m all time.

McGee was named the Women’s Co-Runner of the Year, earning the Cliff Harper Trophy after contributing 20.5 points towards Florida’s eighth all-time SEC Championship. She won the SEC individual title in the 3,000m, finished as runner-up in the mile and ran the anchor leg of Florida’s DMR that won gold for the second consecutive year. Her 3,000m race established an SEC meet record (9:10.48) and made her just the second person to hit 9:10 in the 3,000m at the SEC Indoor Championships since 1987. She also ran a season-best 4:35.03 for her silver-medal performance in the mile. McGee currently has the second-fastest mile in the SEC (seventh in the nation) and the third-fastest 3,000 time in the SEC (19th nationally).

Greene was named the Women’s Freshman Runner of the Year, as the top freshman finisher in both the mile and 3,000m. She was the only freshman to qualify for the finals of the mile at the SEC Indoor Championships, finishing sixth in 4:41.18. Greene also was the only freshman scorer in the 3,000m, placing sixth in 9:30.36. She ran the leadoff leg of UF’s winning distance medley relay. She holds the top 3K (9:18.44) and mile (4:38.03) times for a freshman in the league. She is the second-fastest freshman in the country and the mile and the fifth-fastest freshman nationally in the 3,000m.

Holloway was named the Women's Track and Field Coach of the Year.

The SEC on Friday also announced the All-SEC teams for indoor track and field. The All-SEC first team consists of the winner of each event, the All-SEC second team is comprised of the second and third-place finishers in each event, while the SEC All-Freshman Team consists of the top freshman finisher in each event.
