FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Arkansas men’s track and field team sits in first place with 63.5 points after day one of the Razorback Invitational. Following a third-place standing, the Razorbacks pulled ahead in the final few events of the night to take the top-place spot.

Three Razorbacks led the heptathlon standings after day one of events, with Kevin Lazas, Nathanael Franks and Lane Austell in the top three spots. After the first four events of the 60-meter dash, long jump, shot put and high jump, Lazas had a top-place 3,277 points. Franks came in second place with 2,808 points and Austell held onto the No. 3 spot with 2,780 in his first-ever heptathlon. Brad Culp made his collegiate debut with 2,754 points for a fifth place finish through the first four events. The 60-meter hurdles, pole vault and 1,000-meter run will take place on Saturday to determine the heptathlon champion.

Noah Kittelson and Ken LeGassey recorded identical marks of 6-11 in the high jump to finish first and second, respectively. Devin Randall broke his personal record in shot put by more than a foot, with a mark of 58-9.5 for a second-place finish.

Jarrion Lawson posted a fifth-place finishing time of 21.11 in the 200-meter dash. Curtis Brown recorded a personal best 21.56 ti finish 11th.

The distance medley relay team of Patrick Rono, Travis Southard, Tomas Squella and Stanley Kebenei finish in 9:52.39, the best time in the SEC the season and fourth-best in the NCAA.
