The Weekend That Was: Hogs Dominate Across the Board

This past weekend the Arkansas Razorbacks had dominating performances and exciting wins across many of our programs. Let’s take a look back at an epic weekend for the Hogs.

Razorback Gymnastics Back Home for Ranked Win

The Gymbacks notched their highest ranked win in eight years, taking down the No. 6 Kentucky Wildcats. The 197.400 performance was the fifth 197+ score so far this season for the Razorbacks, and was highlighted by a new program record of 19.675 on floor.

Frankie Price earned a 9.975 on floor, matching her career high and the program record.

Hagen Smith Deals for Razorback Baseball

Starting pitcher Hagen Smith tied the single-game program record with 17 strikeouts in a Razorback win over Oregon State. Smith recorded 15 consecutive outs via strikeout to begin the ballgame.

The pitching staff as a whole had a tremendous weekend, tallying a program record 25 combined strikeouts in game two versus Oklahoma State. Starting pitcher Mason Molina also had 10 strikeouts of his own on Sunday in a win against Michigan.

Khalif Battle Takes Over Versus Missouri

Razorback Men’s Basketball returned home to face Missouri and earned a 88-73 victory with Khalif Battle scoring 42 points. That is good for second most in an SEC game by an Arkansas Razorback, and ties the SEC high for points in a game this season. Battle made six 3-pointers in the game, tying his career high.

Robyn Herron Secures Perfect Game

Razorback Softball pitcher Robyn Herron threw a perfect game against Illinois State, the second perfect game in program history. Herron fanned 11 batters in just 86 pitches in 7 innings as the Razorbacks earned a 7-0 win over the Redbirds. It’s the second double-digit strikeout performance of the season.
