Kentucky Women’s Track Team Earns Program’s Best National Indoor Finish

The Kentucky track team wrapped up an excellent day for UK Athletics by taking home medals at the National Indoor Track and Field Championships.

The men’s team had UK’s greatest individual winner.  Tim Duckworth won gold in the heptathlon with the fourth-best performance in collegiate history.  He’s the first Wildcat to win an individual title since 1996.

The women’s team did not have any gold medal-winners, but they earned enough medals to finish third overall, the best team finish in program history.

Sydney McLaughlin won silver in the 400m.  She set a Junior U20 record, but could not beat the new collegiate record-holder.  Jasmine Camacho-Quinn added a bronze medal to her crowded trophy case in the 60m hurdles.  Olivia Gruver repeated as the bronze medalist in the pole vault.  You can see all of the highlights here.

Congratulations to Edrick Floreal for reaching new heights with Kentucky’s track and field program.
