AUBURN, Ala. — The fifth-ranked Arkansas women’s golf team tied for third place at the 2013 NCAA East Regional Championship to qualify for the NCAA Championship in Athens, Ga., May 21-24.
Arkansas finished with a final round 287 to tie for third place with an 864. The tie for third is the program’s best NCAA Regional finish bettering the fourth-place finish two seasons ago. This will be the sixth NCAA Championship team appearance in program history and the third consecutive for the Razorbacks.
FAYETTEVILLE — The Arkansas pitching staff struggled through its worst outing of the year Friday night, surrendering a season-high in runs and hits to Tennessee.
Arkansas right-hander Ryne Stanek made sure it didn’t happen again Saturday.
FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas’ pitching staff has been dominant in 2013, carrying the nation’s top earned run average into its final home series of the regular season.
There has been one way for opponents to ensure success against the Razorbacks, though. Score five or more runs. Tennessee accomplished it Friday night.
FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas coach Dave Van Horn doesn’t know exactly how long the team meeting lasted. It may have been an hour. It felt like more.
But sitting down to work through his team’s struggles needed to happen no matter how long it took. The Razorbacks had just gotten back from their rough road trip to Nebraska in mid-April and the disappointing results were a sign Arkansas desperately needed to hit the reset button on a season heading south.
