SENIOR DAY SCRIPT: PEAK CARRIES @RAZORBACKWBB PAST MISSOURI

University of Arkansas head women’s basketball coach Tom Collen might be wishing every night could be Senior Night if that is the kind of performance he knew he would get from Keira Peak.

The Clyetteville, Ga., native had a season-best 24 points leading the Razorbacks to a win over Missouri in the final regular season game at Bud Walton Arena Sunday. Peak went 10-for-19 in the game and 4-for-4 from the free throw line. She grabbed four offensive and four defensive rebounds. four assists, three blocks and three steals in 35 minutes.

Check out a complete recap here.

With the win, the Razorbacks also locked up the 11th seed in the 2014 SEC Women’s Basketball Tournament. Full details here. Peak has had a great career at Arkansas. Check out her pre-game ceremony courtesy of RazorVision.

@RazorbackSwim Wraps Up Last Chance Meet Four Arkansas swimmers recorded eight swims faster than the NCAA ‘B’ cut time standard during the Bulldog Invitational Last Chance Meet held at the University of Georgia in Athens, Ga. Additionally, sophomore Rachel Stoehr recorded a personal-best swim by registering the fastest prelim time in the 500 freestyle with an NCAA ‘B’ cut time of 4:45.72. That swim cut 0.98 seconds off Stoehr’s previous best time recorded at the SEC Championships last week. Junior Julia Banach, sophomore Nina Drolc and freshman Aiden Lister also clocked NCAA ‘B’ cut swims over the weekend. The Bulldog Invitational Last Chance Meet served as an opportunity for Razorbacks to lower their times before NCAA selections. The NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships will be held March 20-22 in Minneapolis, Minn. To read the full release on @RazorbackSwim at the Bulldog Invitational Last Chance Meet, click here

Junior Meredith Hays was one of 248 volleyball players across the country to participate in the open tryouts for USA Volleyball during the final weekend of February in Colorado Springs. The Hereford, Texas, native earned AVCA All-America Honorable Mention accolades in 2013 and helped lead the Razorbacks to their second-consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance. She recounts her experience below. “I had an amazing weekend (Feb. 21-23) at the Olympic Training Center. Not only did I get to play with some of the best players in the country, I got to befriend a lot of them, as well. I roomed with two players from Oregon, and in turn, met the rest of the players from their team that came along for the tryouts. I caught back up with girls I played against my first two years of college, as well as some of my current opponents such as some of the Ole Miss players and some individuals from other SEC schools. Between the four sessions I participated in during the tryouts, we seemed to do the same three drills–all in different variations–and playing libero instead of outside hitter was definitely something I had to adjust to. Nevertheless, it was fun to immerse myself in defense and passing without having to worry about swings (although I will gladly "worry" about offense any day). One thing I will treasure from my trip, possibly more than anything else, is getting to discuss schedules, team expectations and team cultures with girls that belonged to big-time programs. Here at Arkansas, we have talked a lot about doing the "impossible" by means of doing what is possible…pushing your limits and challenging yourself is a part of that. We have also talked about the fact that knowing someone or teams that are better than us is good because they are an example of what is possible, even if we are not currently at that point. Talking with these girls and hearing the way they run things, completely separate from the coaches, really inspired me. They are no different than any of us. They are 17-23 year-old young women that decided to do something grander with their college experience. They are still fun-loving and immature in some ways but to see that they have set standards for their team all on their own, is something that definitely left a huge impression on me. All in all, the weekend is one that I am very glad I got the chance to experience! I am hopeful concerning the results of who made what team, and I am thankful for the impact the entire event, as a whole, has had on me!”

Sunny and 75 No. 15 @RazorbackMGolf avoided the winter mix in Fayetteville on Sunday when they opened play in sunny Los Cabos, Mexico, at the Cabo Collegiate hosted by SMU. Led by redshirt sophomore Kolton Crawford’s even-par 71, Arkansas shot a first round 299 to sit in ninth place in the competitive 14-team field. The second round of the three-day event begins at 9 a.m. on Monday.
