How She Qualified
Scott clocked a nation-leading and school-record time of 8:52.57 to win the 3,000 meters at the Husky Classic. With her performance, she posted the fifth-fastest time by a collegian in all conditions. Scott enters the meet of a mile-3K double at the SEC Indoor Championships in Lexington. During her standout indoor campaign, she has also set the school record in the mile with a time of 4:32.48 at the McCravy Memorial.
History at the NCAA Championships
The Capetown, South Africa, native is making her second appearance at the NCAA Indoor Championships, both coming as a participant at 3,000 meters. Last year, she was the national runner-up in the event. Arkansas has one NCAA title at 3,000 meters from Sarah Schwald at the 1995 national meet. Scott is now a two-time national champion with the Razorbacks’ distance-medley relay successfully defending its title Friday night in a school-record time of 10:51.89, the No. 2 time in NCAA history.
