GRANT HOLLOWAY’S FINGERPRINTS were all over the NCAA Championships, making him a slam-dunk choice. He didn’t just win a 60/60H double (6.50 AL & 7.35 AR), the Gator junior also added a 3rd in the long jump and relayed 45.99. The 7.35 was also a Collegiate Record, breaking his own 7.42 from last year.

Honorable Mention: Tyrell Richard (South Carolina State), Morgan McDonald (Wisconsin), Mondo Duplantis (LSU) & Payton Otterdahl (North Dakota State). Duplantis (19-5/5.92 pole vault) and Otterdahl (71-6¾/21.81 shot) claimed Collegiate Records, while Richard moved to No. 4 on the all-time collegiate list in the 400 (44.82) and McDonald scored a 3000/5000 double at Nationals. Otterdahl also won the NCAA weight (79-1¼/24.11) and rose to No. 4 collegian ever.
