Quotes from @RazorbackTF
Head Coach Lance Harter on the overall performance…
“We had some outstanding performances today. The sprinters were a bright spot, with Chrishuna running a lifetime best in the 400 and Regine winning two races. It was also a big day for Taylor Ellis Watson, as she announced her healthy return after transferring in with an injury. She is incredibly gifted and we are pleased to see her step out today. She’s amazingly talented and she’s earned every bit of her reputation. On the distance side, Sandie Raines & Samantha Mohler are just getting their feet on the ground, prepping for their primary events. I think we’re in really good shape.”

Arkansas will return to John McDonnell Field next weekend for the John McDonnell Invitational. The two-day meet will take place Friday, April 11 – Saturday, April 12.
