Head Coach Neil Harper’s contract with the Razorbacks has been extended through the 2026-27 season. The new three-year contract comes on the heels of a successful season for the Razorbacks that saw the team finish 36th in the NCAA Championships while going 7-2 in dual meets, including SEC wins over Kentucky and LSU.

The Razorbacks rounded out the NCAA Championship with yet another stellar day in the pool beginning this morning with a Bella Cothern personal best in the 100 Free and ending with Alessia Ferraguti earning her second All-American Honorable Mention in as many days.

The Razorbacks had a strong showing in today’s NCAA Championship action. The day began with Bella Cothern and Betsy Wizard swimming the 100 Fly. Both had stellar swims with Wizzard shattering her previous personal best by 0.32 seconds, finishing in 52.70. Bella Cothern posted a time of 52.62, coming very close to her own personal best at 52.52.

Bella Cothern competed in Thursday NCAA Championship action, taking on a talented pool of athletes at the highest level of collegiate competition. She swam the 50 Freestyle, one of the Jonesboro native’s best races, and Cothern posted a time of 22.09 which was good for fourth in her heat and 29th overall.

The NCAA Championships will begin on Wednesday, March 20, 2024 in Athens, Georgia at the Gabrielsen Natatorium on the campus of University of Georgia. Bella Cothern, Alessia Ferraguti, and Betsy Wizard will represent the Razorbacks in this year’s National Championship.
