AUSTIN, Texas - Alex Gochenour finished fourth in her first heptathlon with the Razorbacks, totaling 5,522 points over two days at the Texas Relays.

Gochenour started strong in the first event, finishing second in the 100-meter hurdles (13.62), ahead of defending NCAA Heptathlon Champion, Lindsay Vollmer of Kansas. Clearing 5-6.5 in high jump, followed by a mark 39-6.75 in shot put had Gochenour in good standing heading into the final event of the day. Gochenour's time of 24.95 in the 200-meter secured the sophomore a third-place finish through the first four events.

Gochenour began day two with a mark of 18-4.5 in the long jump followed by 115-8 in javelin. The final event of the day secured Gochenour a fourth-place finish with a 2:22.83 finish in the 800-meter.

In the field events, Amethyst Boyd threw a personal-best mark of 151-10 in javelin, well past her previous PR of 131-3.
