Arkansas’ women won every relay but the sprint medley and the 4 x 400 and likely could have won the latter, too. Arkansas women’s sprints coach Chris Johnson closed Saturday’s meet resting his already well-worked regular 4 x 400 members to run a B-team that edged Texas 3:36.03 to 3:36.57 for second behind Baylor’s winning 3:35.71.
“Most of the highlights came yesterday when the weather was cooperative,” Harter said. “Today was more survival with the wind. But to compete the way we did today with the wind in the relays is kind of a feather in our cap.”
The victorious men’s foursome winning the shuttle hurdles relays leading start to finish comprised Shakiel Chattoo, Tre’Bien Gilbert, Gabe Moore, Carl Elliott beating Kansas State in 57.81 to the Wildcats’ 1:02.52.
The 4 x 100 of Kiara Parker, Payton Chadwick, Janeek Brown, and Keithlin Campbell clocked 44.35 second-place Texas’ 44.61.
“I think she did and I think she has more to go,” women’s sprints coach Johnson said. “She has done a fantastic job. With her and Payton sort of spearheading the sprints team and Kiara a senior we feel pretty good.”
