Scott Named USTFCCCA National Athlete of the Week

FAYETTEVILLE
Dominique Scott was named National Athlete of the Week as announced by the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) on Monday. Scott helped No. 7 Arkansas take down top-ranked Texas Friday at the Arkansas vs. Texas Dual, earning the team’s first national award of the season. Coming in with an indoor mile PR of 4:44.78, Scott finished the day with a 4:38.49 win for the 2014 collegiate lead by more than two seconds over The Bowerman Watch List member Laura Roesler of Oregon. The time ranks fifth-best in school history. Later in the meet, she ran the final leg of the distance medley relay team that finished in a collegiate-leading time of 11:25.58. Scott and the Razorbacks will have the week off before returning to action January 31 as Arkansas hosts the Razorback Invitational at Randal Tyson Track Center.
