FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas will lose plenty of veterans from its 2013 team after an NCAA-leading 11 players were selected in last week’s Major League Baseball Draft.
But it appears as if the Razorbacks will get one returning starter back next season.
EUGENE, Ore. – The No. 7 Arkansas women’s track and field team capped its 2013 NCAA Outdoor Championships with the program’s first-ever national title in the 4x400-meter relay and finished in eighth place overall with 30 points.
Arkansas tallied three school-record performances at the meet. Two came Saturday in the 4x400-meter relay and in the 3,000-meter steeplechase by Grace Heymsfield.
EUGENE, Ore. – The No. 2 Arkansas men’s track and field team finished in third place at the 2013 NCAA Outdoor Championships in Eugene, Ore.
The Razorbacks finished the four-day meet with 46.5 points and capped their weekend with a national runner-up finish in the 4x400-meter relay. It marked Arkansas’ highest NCAA outdoor finish under fifth-year coach Chris Bucknam.
FAYETTEVILLE — Dave Van Horn doesn’t have any regrets about 2013.
After looking back at the disappointing end to the season, which began with lofty expectations and a preseason No. 1 ranking, the Arkansas coach did concede some things he might have changed a few years ago.
FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas coach Dave Van Horn said last Thursday he had no idea where infielder Dominic Ficociello would be drafted after a rough junior season.
He got his answer Saturday: The 12th round.
