This past weekend at the Drake Relays, Arkansas was crowned the Co-Champions of the HyVee Cup, a team award given to the overall top-finishing relay teams. The men’s 4x400 relay team brought home the win with a thrilling event to close the day’s competition. The winning time of 3:03.89 was a season-best for the Razorbacks, ranking fifth in the nation and fourth in the SEC. The first-place time moves Jarrion Lawson, Travis Southard, Omar McLeod and Neil Braddy into the No. 7 spot all-time in Arkansas history.

In addition, Anthony May had his best performance of the season starting off with a win in the high jump competition at a mark of 7-3.75, the second-best performance of his outdoor career. The victory height moves May into second place in the Southeastern Conference and ties for No. 3 in the nation. After winning the team’s first event title of the meet, May moved over to the triple jump where he leaped to a nation-leading mark of 53-0.75 on this second attempt. The personal-best jump was good for a second-place finish and takes down his previous personal-best jump of 51-2.

Competition at Friday’s Arkansas Twilight meet will kick off with hammer throw at 11 a.m. Follow the meet live through flashresults.com and on Twitter by following @RazorbackTF.
