Last Time Out

The No.22 Razorbacks sent 20 swimmers to the Minnesota U.S. Grand Prix this weekend to take on some of the top high school, club, collegiate, and professional swimmers in the country, including 2008 Olympians Chloe Sutton and Alison Schmitt. Over the course of the three day meet, Arkansas broke four school records and multiple personal best times.

In Poppell’s Words…(On the Minnesota U.S. Grand Prix)

“This was a fantastic in-season competition for us. The girls had a phenomenal meet this weekend against some of the best in the country. The format of this meet will prepare us well for the SEC Championships in February.”
