ORLANDO — Florida track and field and cross country head coach Mike Holloway will be inducted into the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association Hall of Fame Wednesday night. The event is part of the annual USTFCCCA Convention.

"It’s just an incredible honor and something I never considered that might happen, not only when I started my coaching career but this far along in it," Holloway said following the USTFCCCA’s initial announcement in August.

Holloway has been head coach of the men’s team since 2003, and took over the women’s team in 2008, when Florida became a combined program.

A few notables from Holloway’s resume:

– 6 men’s NCAA Championships (indoor: 2010, 2011, 2012; outdoor: 2012, 2013, 2016)-most in the country since 2010

– 17 top-two finishes in 28 men’s NCAA Championships appearances

– 15 top-three finishes in the last 16 men’s NCAA Championships appearances, including eight in a row outdoors

– Nine Southeastern Conference titles (track and field)

– 2012 women’s SEC Cross Country Championship title
