BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- The Southeastern Conference on Wednesday announced its 2019 Indoor Track and Field Awards, recognizing outstanding performances during the past indoor season, as voted on by the league's 15 head coaches.

The men's award recipients include Grant Holloway of Florida (Runner of the Year); Mondo Duplantis of LSU (Field Athlete of the Year and Freshman Field Athlete of the Year); Mario Garcia Romo of Ole Miss (Freshman Runner of the Year); and Mike Holloway of Florida (Coach of the Year).

The women's award recipients include Arkansas' Payton Chadwick (Runner of the Year); Florida's Yanis David (Field Athlete of the Year); Arkansas' Lauren Gregory (Freshman Runner of the Year); Auburn's Madi Malone (Freshman Field Athlete of the Year); and Arkansas' Lance Harter (Coach of the Year).

It was previously announced that Arkansas' Gabe Moore and Taylor Werner were named the Men's and Women's Scholar-Athletes of the Year.

Grant Holloway scored 28 points in the SEC Championships, the most since records kept dating back to 1974. He became the second man in history to sweep the 60 meters and 60 Hurdles. Holloway has run two of the three fastest 60 Hurdles times in collegiate history. He was also voted SEC Runner of the Year in 2018.

Duplantis set the NCAA record in the pole vault at the SEC Championships with a mark of 5.92m/19-5. He is ranked No. 3 in the world in the event for 2019, and he owns three of the top eight pole vault clearances in collegiate history. Duplantis is the second athlete to be named SEC Men's Freshman Athlete of the Year and SEC Men's Freshman Field Athlete in the Year in the same season.

Garcia Romo ran the leadoff leg on Ole Miss' SEC title-winning Distance Medley Relay team, and he was the top freshman finisher in the 3,000 meters. He earned All-SEC and Freshman All-SEC honors at the SEC Championships.

Mike Holloway led Florida to its eighth SEC Indoor Championship and first since 2015. The Gators scored 103 total points.

Chadwick helped lead Arkansas to the SEC women's title by becoming the first Razorback to win the 60 Hurdles. She also finished runner-up in the 200 meters and split 53.04 in the 4x400-meter relay. Chadwick tallied 19.25 total points at the SEC Championships.

David won a share of the Cliff Harper Trophy by accumulating 20 points at the SEC Championships. She became the fourth woman in history to sweep the long jump and triple jump SEC titles, and David is the only woman ranked in the national top-10 in both horizontal jumps.

Gregory captured the SEC title in the mile, running 4:39.50 to lead a Razorback sweep in the event. Gregory holds the No. 6 time in the NCAA this season at 4:32.92. That is also the top time by a freshman in 2019 and ranks No. 4 in Arkansas program history.

Malone claimed silver in the women's weight throw with a school record toss of 22.11m/72-6.5 at the SEC Championships. She is ranked No. 1 nationally among freshmen weight throwers and No. 9 overall.

Harter guided Arkansas to its ninth all-time SEC Indoor Championship and fifth in a row by scoring 151 total team points.
