Jasmine Moore Shatters NCAA Record, Relay Teams Shine on Final Day of Bob Pollock Meet

CLEMSON, S.C. – After Anna Hall and Grace Stark opened the weekend with outstanding performances, it was Jasmine Moore that got the chance to shine on Saturday afternoon. In her first meet triple jumping for the Gators, she smashed the former school and NCAA record with a jump 14.55m.
 
Not to be outdone, Natricia Hooper jumped a PR of 14.10m, the second-best mark in the NCAA this year and the third-best mark in school history.
 
The day started with Claire Bryant setting a PR in the High Jump with a mark of 1.77m. On the weekend, Bryant also recorded the third-best mark in the NCAA this season in the long jump with a distance of 6.57m.
 
Talitha Diggs and Taylor Manson made their season debuts in the 200m on Saturday. Diggs set a PR with a time of 22.91. That’s also the fourth-best time in the NCAA this season. Manson went 23.54 while Doneisha Anderson followed at 24.79.
 
On the men’s side, Jacory Patterson tallied a 20.91, the 14th-best time in the NCAA this season. Tyler Davis recorded a 20.94 while Ryan Willie followed suit at 21.06.
 
The weekend was capped off in impressive fashion by the Gators’ 4×400 teams. The women’s team of Diggs, Hall, Manson and Sterling Lester ripped off a time of 3:31.61, the third-fastest time in the NCAA this year and sixth fastest in school history.
 
Willie, Patterson, Champion Allison and Jacob Miley became the new NCAA leaders in the Men’s 4×400 with a time of 3:03.21.
 
At the Rod McCravy Memorial meet in Kentucky, the Gators finished off the weekend with outstanding times from Imogen Barrett and Parker Valby.
 
Valby broke the school record in the 3000m with a time of 8:53.89, the second-fastest mark in the NCAA this season.
 
Barrett went 2:04.46 in the 800m, becoming the new NCAA leader this year in the process.
 
The Florida women have run in 14 NCAA events this Indoor Season and have broken records in five of them after just two competition weekends.
 
Quotable: Head Coach Mike Holloway
On the overall performance this weekend:
“I’m very pleased with the team. Their effort and focus is phenomenal right now. It’s early in the season so we’ve got a lot of work to do. We have to maintain that focus but very, very impressed so far.”
 
On the women’s, record-breaking performances:
“Obviously our women’s team is on a mission. We’ve assembled an incredible group of athletes but they’re also incredible people. I’m very pleased with them. Our school records aren’t easy to break so if you break school record, it’s impressive. I think there’s more to come. I really do.”
 
On the relay teams closing out the weekend:
“I think the big thing for me, is that we’ve got to learn how to do things when we’re tired. You get to the conference meet, you’ve won a few races; you get to the national meet, you’ve won a few races, a lot of things are on the line. It’s prep for that. So for us to go out there and do the things we did today, I think there’s more there on both sides. I’m really excited about the future of the program and what we’re doing right now. I really love the pride and passion everyone is exhibiting at this rate.”
