The Highlands Ranch, Colo. native set a school and personal record by putting up 6412 points in her Florida outdoor debut including personal bests in five of the seven events. Her time of 2:04.61 in the 800 meters broke an American and collegiate record for the fastest ever 800-meter race in a Heptathlon.

She is now the highest-scoring American-born Heptathlete in collegiate history. She also has put up the most points in a Heptathlon in collegiate history at age 21 or younger.

Hall has the early NCAA and world lead in the event. She is also set to compete in relays in the coming weeks for the Gators.

Clemons made his collegiate outdoor debut this past weekend with a mark of 7.99m in the Long Jump. His jump was under the wind limit to be considered an NCAA-qualifying mark. Read more: Anna Hall sets PB to win Texas Relays 2022 Heptathlon title
