GATO TRACKSTERS GO 6-0 Nineteen eighty-three started slowly for Coach John Randolph ' s men ' s track team but the season ended with the Gators a very respectable third at the Southeastern Conference outdoor championships. Hampered by injuries, the team limped through the indoor season with five wins and four losses. One bright note came with Todd He broke the UF record in the 1,500-meter running it in 3:41.4 (converts to a 3:59.0 mile) on March 4th at the Florida Fast Time in the O ' Connell David Strahl, another Gator, was im- pressive in the same race, coming in with a time of 3:44.6 Both Strahl and Sinclair qualified for the NCAA indoor championships.

Alabama came in second, then Old Miss, Georgia, and The outdoor season proved to be better ground for the Gators. The team won all six of their dual meets, showing up teams like Princeton and Florida State. The win against Florida State was espe- cially sweet. The Gators beat the at Tallahassee for the first time in 10 years. On the last weekend in April, Keith Brantly won the 10,000-meter at the Penn Relays for the third year in a row. Brantly won his second consecutive 10,000-meter in the SEC outdoor in May.
