ORLANDO, Fla. ( - The No. 11 UCF track and field team continues its tour of the Sunshine State as the team travels to the Hurricane Alumni Invitational held at the University of Miami in Coral Cables this Saturday.

The Knights look to keep the momentum rolling after a solid outing at last weekend's Pepsi Florida Relays. The team produced 14 season bests and added three new school records, and Octavious Freeman received a lot of buzz this week surrounding her record-breaking and world- leading performance in the 100 meters.

On Thursday, Freeman was added to the Bowerman Watch List for the first time this season -- she received mention on the indoor preseason Watch List -- after appearing twice in 2012. As a sophomore, Freeman is the only underclassman currently in the running for the award.

She joins teammate and fellow sprinter Aurieyall Scott on the list, marking the first time UCF has simultaneously had two student-athletes warrant consideration for the prestigious award. No other school in the country currently has two athletes on the list.

The Bowerman, which debuted in 2009, is presented annually by the USTFCCCA to the most outstanding male and female collegiate track and field athletes in the nation.

UCF will begin Saturday's competition with the hammer throw at 1 p.m. The 4x100 relay will kick off the racing events at 4 p.m. Results will be available via
