FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arkansas senior Dominique Scott has been selected as the SEC Runner of the Week following a stellar performance at last weekend’s Chile Pepper Festival.
The defending conference champion, Scott earned her sixth SEC Runner of the Week award after a season debut which saw her win the Chile Pepper Festival in dominating fashion.
