BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Seemingly sprinting through his third indoor campaign as a Razorback, junior Obi Igbokwe has been selected as the Southeastern Conference Runner of the Week for the third time this season by the league office.
Already ranked third in the nation in the 400-meter dash, Igbokwe focused on his turnover and speed work this past weekend at the Arkansas Qualifier and was rewarded with an indoor personal best in the 200 of 20.69. His performance is the second-fastest in the SEC so far this year and ranks him at No. 7 on the NCAA leader boards. Igbokwe also moved up to No. 6 on Arkansas’ all-time bests list.
Arkansas will return to action next weekend in College Station, Texas, on a mission to defend its league title at the 2018 Southeastern Conference Indoor Championships. The Razorbacks are the winningest indoor program in the conference, having captured 22 titles since 1992.
