This WeekThe No. 19 Razorbacks are idle this week before hosting Drury on Feb. 6 at 6 p.m. at the Arkansas Natatorium.
Last Time OutThe Kansas Jayhawks came to the Arkansas Natatorium on Jan. 22 for a dual with the Razorbacks. As they have been all season, the Razorbacks were dominant, winning soundly, 165-135. The win marked only the second time in program history the Razorbacks have posted consecutive dual meet wins over the Jayhawks.
In Poppell’s Words (on Kansas)“We had one of our best dual meets of the year today,” Poppell said. “The highlight of the meet for me was our win in the 200 medley relay. On paper, Kansas had been much faster than us this season, however, we were able to do some things a bit differently which resulted in a spectacular performance. The other highlights for me were our one-through-four finishes in the 500 free and 1650 free.”
Siow breaks record, still undefeatedOnce again, junior Yi Ting Siow dominated her events, winning all three of her races (100 breast, 200 breast, and 400 IM) and setting a school record and career-best time in the 100 breast with an NCAA ‘B’ cut time of 1:01.68. Siow’s time of 2:12.04 in the 200 breast is second in the Arkansas record books, behind teammate Leah Pierce and her time of 4:18.58 in the 400 IM is the third fastest in school history. In two meets with the Razorbacks, Siow is six-for-six with an average margin of victory of 3.04 seconds.
200 Medley Relay Team Makes Top FiveIn addition to Yi Ting Siow’s three top-five Arkansas times posted at the meet with Kansas, the 200 medley relay team of Siow, Leah Pierce, Katie Kastes and Lynette Ng placed first in the event with a time of 1:43.96. Their time is the season-best and the fourth-fastest time in school history.
