A perpetual staple in the national top three so far this year Arkansas’ women’s track and field team will close out its indoor regular season campaign this weekend at the Arkansas Qualifier in Fayetteville and the Alex Wilson Invitational in South Bend, Ind.
The Razorbacks will host nine programs this weekend including Arkansas Baptist, Central Missouri, Kansas, Missouri Southern, Oklahoma Christian, Oklahoma State, Oral Roberts, Rogers State and Tulsa will also be making the journey to the Randal Tyson Track Center on Friday.
Therese Haiss, Daina Harper, Damajahnee Birch and Nikki Hiltz will travel to Notre Dame on Saturday in search of an NCAA Indoor Championship qualifying mark in the distance medley relay.
“We’re at a crossroads this weekend,” head coach Lance Harter said. “Two things happen. One, those that are not going to be in the top 27 that are allowed to compete at the SEC Championships, this is the end of their season. Those that are going to be on the roster going into the SEC meet are going to take care of business and use this as their final tune up or as a competition to try and improve their mark as far as seeding purposes go for the SEC meet. Besides that, we’re also going to take our distance medley relay to Notre Dame and try to get it qualified to add to our weapons for the NCAA Championships.”
Arkansas will open up competition at the Arkansas Qualifier at 3:15 p.m. on Friday with four Razorbacks entered in the women’s pole vault.
