Florida senior Alex McMurtry claimed her third career NCAA individual event title Friday as she shared the vault win. 

It was the 75th event title of her Gator career. The trio of vault winners all came from NCAA Semifinal II. McMurtry, Brenna Dowell (Oklahoma) and MyKayla Skinner (Utah) shared the win at 9.9375.

McMurtry is the fourth Gator to win NCAA vault, joining Susan Hines (1997, 1998), Marissa King (2011) and Kytra Hunter (2012).

A Gator has won an NCAA event title each year since 2011 as the program has claimed 14 wins in that span. McMurtry is now third all-time for UF with three NCAA titles, following Bridget Sloan (six) and Hunter (four).
