FAYETTEVILLE – The No. 22 Razorback swimming and diving team (7-1, 2-1 SEC) will host Kansas and Vanderbilt at 11 a.m. at the Arkansas Natatorium on Saturday. The double-dual is the last home meet of the season for the Razorbacks. The meet will also serve as Senior Day, and the team will celebrate seven competing seniors in a ceremony that will preface the races.
Last weekend, Arkansas defeated Rice 207-86 and Clemson 230-19 in a double-dual meet at the Arkansas Natatorium. The meet was highlighted by Razorback wins in 14 events, including the first NCAA zone-qualifying scores for two Arkansas divers.
Junior Meghan Clark
(Frisco, Texas) won the three-meter diving event with a score of 297.90. Sophomore Hannah Bortnick
(Mission Hills, Kan.) placed second with a score of 291.68. Both scores are the first NCAA zone-qualifying scores for the divers this season.

The Razorbacks and the Jayhawks last met nearly a year ago on Feb. 2, 2013 in Lawrence, Kan., where Arkansas defeated Kansas 219-81.
The Vanderbilt Commodores will enter the meet with a 4-5 dual meet record and 0-2 in the SEC.
