Both McLeod and Lawson are the defending NCAA champions in their respective events. The Razorbacks’ NCAA roster also features two-time NCAA champion Andrew Irwin in the pole vault.
In its last outing, Arkansas registered a runner-up finish at the 2015 SEC Indoor Championships in Lexington, Ky. During the two-day conference meet, the Razorbacks tallied four event titles with Irwin in the pole vault, McLeod in the 60-meter hurdles and Kemoy Campbell at 3,000 and 5,000 meters. For his double-win performance, Campbell was the co-recipient of the Cliff Harper Trophy as the meet’s high-point scorer.
Of Arkansas’ 20 NCAA indoor titles, five of them have been won on its home track in Fayetteville including the program’s most recent team crown in 2013. The Razorbacks also hoisted the first-place trophy at the Tyson Center in 2002, 2003, 2005 and 2006. At last year’s national meet in Albuquerque, N.M., the Razorbacks tallied a second-place finish.
