African American Studies majors Andres Arroyo, KeAndre Bates, Tyjah Eady, Eric Futch, Timothy (TJ) Hayes, and Carlos Miranda have been competing in several track and field events during the summer 2017 track and field season.

The Florida Gators men’s track and field team won the 2017 NCAA Outdoor Championship for the second straight season and fourth time in the last six attempts in June 2017..

Also, Eric Futch and Timothy Holmes both earned the chance to compete in the IAAF World Championships in August in London after competing well at the USATF Championships in Sacramento, California.

Andres Arroyo will represent Puerto Rico in the 800-meter race at the IAAF World Championships.

KeAndre Bates (pictured below) won his second long jump national title of the year in June 2017 at the NCAA Outdoor Championships.

Keep up the good work on the field and in the classroom and go Gators!
