NCAA Runner-Up Dan Wallace Suspended Indefinitely by Florida

GAINESVILLE, Florida, May 8. DAN Wallace, Florida’s two-time runner-up at NCAAs this year, has been suspended indefinitely due to a violation of team rules.

“We are disappointed in some of the choices Dan Wallace made,” head coach Gregg Troy said in a statement released by Florida Athletics. “Because of his actions he will be suspended from team activities indefinitely. Any decisions regarding a change to his status will be addressed internally.”

Wallace, who is slated to represent Scotland as part of the Commonwealth Games this year, put together an amazing year this year for the Gators. He finished as a runner-up in both the 500-yard free and 400-yard IMs at the NCAA Championships earlier this year. He also won the 500-yard free at SECs for his first conference title, smashing the SEC and Florida records with a 4:10.73.
