This is the eighth in a series of stories on the members of the University of Arkansas Hall of Honor Class of 2012. The class includes Edrick Floreal, Andrew Lang, Bill McClard, Bruce Maxwell, Ronn Reynolds, Clyde Rhoden, Jody Rittenhouse, Lisa Sparks, Terry Stewart and Dennis Winston. The official induction is Friday, Aug. 31, at the Holiday Inn Convention Center in Springdale. Tickets are $50 and can be purchased from the Razorback Foundation. For more information, call the Foundation at 479-443-9000.

Lisa Sparks was one of the standouts in the early years for the Arkansas women's track and field team. The sprinting star was a four-year letterman from 1980-83.

Sparks was a two-time All-American, earning honors in the 4x100-meter relay in 1982 as well as in the 440 yards in 1983.

She continues to hold a presence in Arkansas' records book as the school record-holder at 300 and 440 yards with times of 35.91 and 55.50, respectively. She also owns three of the top five times in both the 300 and 440 yards.

Sparks was also part of the school-record performances in the indoor 4x200-meter relay with Wanda Harris, Patricia Johnson and Gloria Russell in 1982, and the mile relay with Russell, Linda Bedford and Diane Ousley in 1980.

Her mile relay team holds the top two marks in school history while her 4x200-meter relay team holds the top three marks, including school-record times of 3:48.69 and 1:41.45, respectively.
