Thursday’s 5,000-meter run will be contested by a host of Hogs including Sydney Brown, Abby Gray, Valerie Reina, Regan Ward and Taylor Werner. Werner currently holds the best Razorback time at that distance of the season, off her performance of 16 minutes, 26.52 seconds at the Stanford Invitational earlier this spring.
Day one of competition will also see All-American steeplechaser Devin Clark take on her signature event, scheduled to compete in arduous 3,000-meter steeplechase at 7:20 p.m. CT. Clark’s freshman campaign saw the talented distance runner transition seamlessly from straight racing to dominating barriers, capturing conference, NCAA and national (USA track and field) recognition for her efforts.
Middle distance All-Americans Therese Haiss and Nikki Hiltz will headline a group of Razorbacks entered in Friday’s 1,500, potentially joined by Clark, Kailee Sawyer, Carina Viljoen, Ward and Werner.
Redshirt senior Logan Bishop will be one of three Razorbacks taking on the 10,000 at the Mt. SAC Relays. Freshman Maddy Reed and redshirt sophomore Kelsey Schrader will join Bishop, all three on the hunt for postseason qualifying marks.
