FAYETTEVILLE - The No. 4 University of Arkansas men's track and field team closed out the Stanford Invitational Saturday with a trio of top-20 finishes at 800 meters from Drew Butler, Duncan Phillips and Anthony Lieghio. The Stanford Invitational was held at the Cobb Track & Angell Field in Palo Alto, Calif.

Butler was the Razorbacks' top performer at 800 meters. In the six-section timed final, Butler posted the sixth-fastest performance with a personal-best time of 1:49.43. He surpassed his previous of 1:50.03 run at the 2010 SEC Championships. Saturday's race was the first outdoor competition for Butler since the 2010 season.
