STANFORD, Calif. – The No. 3 Arkansas men’s track and field team completed its weekend at the Stanford Invitational on Saturday afternoon with one final performance on the track and a pair of top-10 finishes in the field.
Following a third-place finish in section three of the 1,500-meter run on day one, sophomore Cameron Griffith returned to the track, racing to a top-25 performance in the 800.
Arkansas throwers Sam Kempka and Jeff Rogers capped the weekend for the Razorbacks finishing fourth and 10th, respectively in the invitational section of the shot put.
Although the Razorbacks didn’t send any current student-athletes to the Texas Relays, #ProHogs Jarrion Lawson, Omar McLeod, Wallace Spearmon Jr. and Marqueze Washington picked up two relay titles capturing gold in the 4-x-100 and 4-x-200-meter relays. The quartet raced to a world leading performance of 38.17 in the 4-x-100, .30 seconds faster than the previously established lead.
The Razorback sprinters and jumpers will journey to Waco, Texas next weekend to compete at the Baylor Invitational on Saturday, April 8. Arkansas’ distance contingent will train through the next week and return to action at the Bryan Clay Invitational on April 13-14 in Azusa, California.
