FAYETTEVILLE – The NCAA Division I Indoor Track and Field Committee has released the accepted entries list for the 2010 NCAA Division I Indoor Track and Field Championships, at Fayetteville’s Randal Tyson Track Center, March 12-13.

Arkansas will be represented by four individuals in three individual events. Junior Shelise Williams will run the 400 meters, freshman Stephanie Brown will run the 800 meters and sophomore Tina Sutej and senior Katie Stripling will compete in the pole vault. Williams is No. 2 in her event, Brown 10th and the vaulters rank No. 2 and No. 6, respectively.

The Razorbacks will also compete in the 4×400-meter and distance medley relays. Arkansas has the NCAA’s fastest mile-relay time of 3:32.87, the Arkansas school record. Arkansas’ DMR has the No. 6 time in the NCAA, 11:06.56, also the Arkansas school record.

"We got the entries we expected and it’s a solid group," women’s head coach Lance Harter said. "Our kids have gotten better and better as the season progressed. The SEC Championships last weekend were a great momentum builder for us. We won some titles and set some SEC records and, overall, had some impressive performances. We are looking to do the same, on our home track, at the NCAA Championships this weekend.
