Putting It Down For Californ-I-A
SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Looking westward for the remainder of the season, No. 9 Arkansas men’s track and field team will travel to the Golden State to take part in the NCAA West Preliminary Round (West Prelims) in California’s capital city.
The regional competition, which spans over three days, will feature the 48 most talented student-athletes (per event) in the West. Student-athletes earn their trips to Eugene, Oregon, perpetual hosts of the NCAA Outdoor Championships by finishing among the top-12.
Although the Razorbacks finished third at the 2018 SEC Outdoor Championships, the resilient group heads into the West Preliminary meet with the most entries in the country at 37.
“Right now it’s about getting the job done at the NCAA Preliminary Round,” said assistant coach Travis Geopfert.
“We’re headed to Sacramento with 37 entries, so we have a lot of guys going. They’re excited, we just have to go out there and flat out get it done,” Geopfert continued.
