Moore, from the University of Florida, has been named the Indoor Women’s Field Athlete of the Year for the second year in a row. Garland, from the University of Georgia, has earned the UGA track and field program its first USTFCCCA National Indoor Men’s Field Athlete of the Year honor.

Moore is only the fourth woman ever in indoor or outdoor horizontal jumps to achieve the feat of clearing both 15m in the triple jump and 7m in the long jump indoors. At the NCAA Indoors, she set the American and collegiate records in the triple jump (15.12m/49’7.25″) and the collegiate record in the long jump (7.03m/23’0.75″) on her way to clinching her fifth and sixth national titles as a Gator.

Impressively, Moore has won every SEC and NCAA horizontal jump competition as a Gator, accumulating six SEC titles and six National Titles.

Garland destroyed the collegiate record in the heptathlon to win the combined event at the NCAA Championships, finishing with 6,639 points, 140 points more than Ashton Eaton scored to win the 2010 NCAA title for the previous collegiate record.

During the regular season, Garland showed flashes of brilliance in the heptathlon when he moved up to No. 2 in collegiate history with his 6,415 score at the Texas Tech Open & Multis.

Moore and Garland have both made their universities proud with their outstanding achievements, and their awards are a testament to their hard work and dedication. Congratulations to these two talented athletes on their well-deserved honors!
