Spectators are advised to use parking lot #99 off Beachwood Ave. located northwest of the Tyson Center. Parking for the Arkansas Qualifier can be found here.
At last weekend’s Tyson Invitational and Husky Classic, Arkansas picked up four NCAA top-20 new or improved marks in the 200-meters, the 3,000-meters, and 60-meter hurdles. Janeek Brown ran the 20th-best mark in the NCAA this season at 23.37 (200-meters) that currently sits as the seventh-best in program history. Lauren Gregory and Taylor Werner posted the sixth and seventh-fastest 5K’s in the nation this season at the Husky Classic that catapulted them up the all-time list to No. 2 and No. 3 in program history, respectively, while Brown returned from the 60-meter flat to the 60-meter hurdles running 7.95 that sits at No. 2 in the NCAA and No. 2 in program history just .02 off the program record set by Chadwick last season. Arkansas currently has 16 performances in the top-20 of the NCAA.
Following the conference meets next weekend, the 16-best performers in each event (top-12 for relays) qualify for the national meet. Following a declaration and acceptance process athletes below the top-16 can move up if a better performer opts out.
In addition to the Razorbacks, additional teams competing in Fayetteville this weekend include Arkansas Baptist, Cal Poly, Christian Bros., Emporia State, Kansas, Missouri Southern, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma State, Oral Roberts, Pittsburgh, Rogers State, Southwest Baptist, Tulsa, and Wichita State
Racing at the JDL DMR Invitational, Arkansas’ distance medley relay team will look to post an NCAA qualifying time in advance of the SEC Championships.
