A Weekend Off: The Lady Razorbacks took last weekend off from competition in preparation for the SEC Championships. The time spent away from the track was much needed as several athletes had spent the past five weekends competing, four of those on the road.
The SEC Championships: For the 25th time in Southeastern Conference history the league will host a women’s outdoor track and field championship, this time in Nashville, Tenn. The 2005 Championships mark the first time in conference history that Nashville will play host as some of the top teams in the nation battle it out for SEC supremacy.
Last Season at the SEC Championships: Coming in with loads of potential, but also a sixth-place finish at the indoor championships, no one expected the Lady Razorbacks to do what they did at the 2004 meet in Oxford, Miss. Arkansas tallied 124 points on way to a first-place finish and its third-ever SEC Outdoor title. LSU made a valiant effort on the final day to knock off the Lady Razorbacks, scoring 114 points, but the duo of Veronica Campbell and LaSahunte’a Moore slammed the door in the 200-meter finals when they finished 1-3 in the event for 16 points.
