Track Fact Sheet #5

A Week to Prepare: The Lady Razorbacks took last weekend off in preparation for the SEC Championships. Arkansas typically takes the weekend off as a final tune up for the meet and should go into the championships fresh and ready to compete.

Not Everyone: While the majority of the Lady Razorbacks got last weekend to rest, freshmen Denise Bargiachi and Kelly Vrshek did get a chance to fuel their competitive fires. Both competed at the USA Junior Cross Country Championships and earned alternate spots on Team USA for the World Championships and NACAC games.

The SEC Championships: There is no question that the Southeastern Conference is one of if not the toughest league crown to claim as six teams rank in the top 15. Last season, Tennessee won the league title on its way to the national championship and Arkansas took second at the conference meet only to finish 19th at the NCAA. LSU holds the league record for most indoor conference titles with 10 but Arkansas is not too far behind with three since the 2000 season.

Last Year at the SEC Meet: It was bittersweet for the Lady Razorbacks at the 2005 SEC Championships as they barely missed on their attempt to claim the conference title for the fourth time in school history. Getting off to a fast start, the Lady Razorbacks were in good shape, but failed to get the help they needed from the rest of the league, eventually succumbing to the Tennessee Lady Vols, 135.5-120
