FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Senior Dominique Scott has been named Southeastern Conference Co-Runner of the Week the league office announced this afternoon. This marks the third time in her career that Scott has earned a SEC indoor weekly honor.
The Capetown, South Africa native earned the award for her record-breaking performance last weekend at the 2015 Husky Classic in Seattle Wash. Scott won the 3,000 meter in a blistering 8:52.57, more than two seconds faster than the second-place finisher. Her time was a personal-best, a Husky Classic meet record, a program record, the top time in the SEC and the country this season as well as the fifth-best time in collegiate history.
Scott and the Razorbacks, who picked up their first No. 1 ranking in the eight-year history of the United States Track & Field/Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) NCAA Division I National Team Computer Rankings on Monday afternoon, are off this weekend, but will be back in action Feb. 27-28 at the 2015 SEC Championships in Lexington, Ky.
