Irwin Sets Program Record At Tyson Invite

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Some of the nation’s top-25 teams gathered at Randal Tyson Track Center on Saturday as the No. 3 Razorbacks wrapped up the second day of action at the Tyson Invitational.

Day two of competition was highlighted by a record-setting performance by senior Andrew Irwin. Irwin put on a show for the home crowd and broke the school record, which he owned, with his mark of 18-10.25 (5.75m) to take second place. Irwin’s mark not only set a new program record, but it’s also the highest height cleared in the SEC this season.
