ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - The University of Arkansas women's track and field team finished in sixth place at the 2014 NCAA Division I Indoor Championships which including a national title Friday evening in the distance-medley relay. Over the two-day competition, the Razorbacks totaled 30 points. Stephanie Brown and Dominique Scott were the team's high-point scorers Saturday with a runner-up performances in the mile and at 3,000 meters, respectively.

“I’m ecstatic,” said Head Coach Lance Harter. “If people realize who we lost last season, who we weren’t able to return this season and still be able to finish sixth in the nation – it was exemplary.”

Three of the DMR squad stepped up for the Razorbacks again on Saturday, earning to runner-up titles in Stephanie Brown and Dominique Scott.  Brown earned a second-place finish in the mile with a time of 4:39.12 to give Arkansas an important eight points.

“To have the distance crew rise like they did is something every distance coach can appreciate,” said Harter. “To have that success in a 24 hour period happens very rarely.”

Scott went on to compile eight more points for the Razorbacks, finishing strong in the 3,000-meter on the heels of six-time NCAA Champion Abbey D’Agostino of Dartmouth with a time of 9:16.05. It marked Scott’s first-ever NCAA Track and Field Championship.

“It’s my first national track meet to win a title and take second place, I’m ecstatic,” said Scott. “It was a dream come true this weekend.”

The women’s 4x400 relay finished in the top-eight in a challenging field of the nation’s leading sprinters. Regine Williams, Chrishuna Williams, Brianna Swinton and Diana Harper finished in eighth place with a season-best time of 3:34.45. The dynamic relay team consists of three freshman and a sophomore.

“To have a mile relay made up of three freshman, that was probably one of the best coaching jobs anyone could have,” said Harter. “Chris Johnson did a fantastic job to get those girls to score.”

Sophomore Alex Gochenour set personal records in the three out of the five pentathlon events, on her way to a 13th overall finish with 4,042 points. Her eighth-place finish in 8.43 took down her previous 60-meter hurdle record of 8.57 set at the SEC Championships. A first-attempt mark of 40-11.5 in shot put shattered Gochenour’s previous record of 39-0.75 and her long jump mark of 19-0.5 surpassed her previous best mark of 18-9.5, both set at the SEC Championships two weeks ago.
