WINSTON SALEM, N.C. – The No. 3 Arkansas men’s track and field team closed out its regular season with an exceptional performance off the heels of its distance medley relay team at the UCS Invitational on Saturday afternoon. Four Razorbacks including Ethan Moehn, Jamarco Stephen, Carlton Orange and Jack Bruce raced into the NCAA elite posting one of the top-five best performances in the event this year with 9 minutes, 30.03 seconds (converted from 9:37.78).
“We had many outstanding performances in all areas of our program this weekend,” head coach Chris Bucknam said. “We definitely ratcheted up our intensity and sense of urgency as we approach our championship season, which begins next week with the SEC Championships. I couldn’t be more proud of every single person on this team right now, they all deserve credit. A special shout, however, goes to our upperclassmen these past couple weekends. They are leading by example across the board, showing a very young team overall how to compete when it starts to count the most. Their sense of poise and timing is nothing short of outstanding. My hat is off to them. We are excited for our final push indoors.”
Arkansas heads to Nashville next weekend, opening postseason competition with the 2017 SEC Indoor Championship, hosted by Vanderbilt. The Razorbacks head into the event in search of their 54th conference victory, inclusive of Southwest Conference titles.
