The Florida Gators outdueled the competition at the FSU relays to land on the NCAA list, courtesy of senior Will Gross.

Florida paved the way on rival territory in Tallahassee last week.Β  Gators track and field had eight participants to open the first day of the relays.


The Gators began their afternoon with entries into hammer throws and long jumps.

During the 2024 season for Florida, the Gators have excelled at long jumps due to their young and rising roster.

Statement Made

Florida’s young prominent roster was in full striking distance off the bat.

Recapping this outdoor event, Anthaya Charlton commenced her 2024 outdoor campaign in the women’s long jump. She made a statement with a 6.38m/20’11.25.” The sophomore has made her mark on this Gator roster and in slotting on the top ten list three times.

Top Collegiate Outcomes

Taking a deeper dive at the events that occurred up in Tallahassee, Gross took off from the get-go and placed himself on the top 10 list at No. 6 in the 2024 NCAA placement.

In addition to the bright lights being placed on Gross, Imani Washington was electric during the hammer throw with a 54.67m/179’4″ on the field.

Shifting from the hammer throw to the long jump, Charlton made an impressive splash with a 6.38m/20’11.25.” Florida’s utter dominance has something to witness throughout the course of the season.

Between the roster surpassing many milestones and notching personal records, this squad is the team to beat.

The Gators have been getting recognition around the NCAA for their unbelievable performance and prowess.

With a lot of play left on the field, the Gators will continue to ignite their engines and build upon these accolades.
