    Razorbacks ranked in first swimming-diving poll after Mizzou Invitational

    Fayetteville — Arkansas swimming landed in the Top 30 of the latest CSCAA/TYR poll, checking in at 26th in the nation heading into 2020.

    The Hogs earned the spot inside the Top 30 with their stellar performances at the three-day Mizzou Invite in late November.

    Anna Hopkin broke six records and posted the fastest 200 free in the nation along with the fifth-best performance in split history in the 200-medley relay.

    Peyton Palsha set a new personal best in the 400 IM with the fourth-fastest time in the nation, and sophomore Molly Moore came in fifth in the 100 back, clocking  a lifetime best of 54.14.

    Arkansas finishes the calendar year with a total of 40 lifetime bests, and multiple NCAA ‘A’ and ‘B’ cuts.

    The Razorbacks return to action at the Tennessee Diving Invite Jan. 3.
