FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The University of Arkansas men’s track and field team had a strong showing at the final regular-season meet of the year at the Arkansas Twilight Friday night at John McDonnell Field. The No. 3 Razorbacks took full advantage of a final attempt to qualify for the NCAA Championship season, as Arkansas qualified three runners in the 800-meter.

“Those guys did a great job, it was the perfect night to run,” said Head Coach Chris Bucknam. “We needed some good times in that 800, we needed to get some qualifiers. We’re happy with all four of those guys running. Rono ran to win, he did a great job. Andrew Pisechko and Tomas Squella both got their NCAA qualifiers, which was huge for us tonight. Cale Wallace also set a PR, so we got some work out of the 800 guys.”

The 800-meter was a bright spot for the Razorbacks as Patrick Rono earned the victory in 1:46.99, good for the fourth-best time in the NCAA and third-best time in the SEC. Squella finished fourth in 1:48.77, a season best for the sophomore. Pisechko picked up a huge overall PR with 1:49.29, taking down his previous time of 1:51.18 set at the John McDonnell Invitational earlier this season. Wallace crossed the finish linein 1:50.79, taking down his previous PR of 1:51.52 set at the John McDonnell Invitational earlier this season.

Larry Donald finished second in the 110-meter hurdles with a time of 14.49, his second-best performance of the season. Also in sprints, Eric Janise ran 46.75 for a third-place finish in the 400-meter dash.

Stanley Kebenei will compete in the 3,000-meter steeplechase at the Payton Jordan Invitational in Stanford, Calif. on Sunday. Arkansas will then take a week off as they gear up for the SEC Championships May 15-18. For more information on Razorback Track and Field, follow @RazorbackTF on Twitter.
