FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Recently ranked No. 8 in the USTFCCCA preseason poll, the Arkansas men’s track & field team will embark on its 2019 indoor campaign this Friday as the hosts of the Arkansas Invitational. The meet will begin Friday, Jan. 11 at 12:30 p.m. CT with the men’s shot put while running events will follow at 3:20 p.m.

Moving on without 16-time NCAA All-American Kenzo Cotton, who made an appearance at both the indoor and outdoor national meets in every season in which he competed for the Razorbacks, Arkansas will look to a roster riddled with top transfers and experienced contributors as they open a new chapter in the program’s history.

As a new season begins on the track, a new season of #InTheZone gets underway as well with a new format for 2019. Join us for a new season of In the Zone Luncheons set to kick off on Tuesday, January 22. The five event series, to be held on one Tuesday of each month, will be hosted by Coach Chris Bucknam and Coach Lance Harter. The event is open to fans, local track officials, and the media and will once again take place at Bordinos (310 W. Dickson Street). The program will start at 12 p.m. CT with a weekly recap/outlook from the coaches, a moderated student-athlete panel, and an audience Q&A.
