FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – A late surge on day two gave the women’s track and field team a victory at the Razorback Invitational Saturday at Randal Tyson Track Center. The No. 7 Razorbacks picked up the win with 151 points, just five points ahead of No. 3 ranked Texas A&M with a 146 point second-place finish.

Trailing the Aggies heading into the mile, the Arkansas distance team picked up the pace and helped regain the No. 1 spot. Grace Heymsfield’s mile performance took down the previous school record set at the 2012 SEC Championships and pushed the Razorbacks past Texas A&M. Heymsfield earned a first-place finish with a time of 4:34.22, good for a new University of Arkansas record and second-best time in the nation. Dominique Scott was close behind with a second-finish in 4:36.11, a personal record for the junior. Arkansas gained a 8.5 point lead over the Aggies, a lead that was never relinquished.

The 4x400 relay team of Chrishuna Williams, Regine Williams, Diana Harper and Stephanie Brown finished third with a season-best time of 3:35.46. The Razorback team ranks fourth in the NCAA this season and fourth all-time at Arkansas. Arkansas finished behind a Texas A&M squad that recorded the fastest time in the world in 2014 for a first-place finish.

More success on the distance team, as Samantha Mohler took down her previous 3,000-meter record set at the Arkansas vs. Texas Dual with a second place finish at 9:47.24. Brown earned a third-place finish in the scored 800-meter run with a time of 2:05.82, the fifth-best time in the NCAA this season. Caitlin Noonan won the non-scored 800-meter college run with a time of 2:11.69, her first-career event title.
Arkansas finished second in the triple jump, with Tamara Myers’ mark of 43-.5, just shy of her personal best.
The Razorbacks will travel to the Armory Collegiate Invite in New York next weekend, February 7-8, before hosting the Tyson Invitational on February 14-15.
