Lady'Backs Off to Solid Start at Texas
Londa Bevins        AUSTIN, Texas - The University of Arkansas Lady Razorback track team got off to a solid start at the 77th annual Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays on Thursday afternoon with a fifth-place finish in the 4x800-meter relay.
        The team of Shannon Spaulding, Londa Bevins, Aneita Denton and Erica Sigmont completed the non-NCAA qualifying event in 8:50.13, the fourth fastest time in Lady Razorback history. The time was just three seconds off Arkansas' second fastest mark and is the fastest time run by a Lady Razorback squad since the 2001 season when the team of Jennifer Petite, Christin Wurth, Bevins and Tracy Robertson ran 8:51.47 at the Texas Relays.
        The Lady'Backs picked solid legs from all four of their runners despite spending the entire morning traveling from Fayetteville to Austin for the races. Arriving in town at 11:00 a.m., the quartet of Arkansas runners donned their spikes and took to the track at 4:00 p.m. and still picked up three legs faster than 2:15.
        "This is a good start," Arkansas head track coach Lance Harter said. "I didn't think that we would win that race, but to finish fifth against a good field is very good. I'm excited to see what we can do the rest of the weekend."
        Sigmont anchored the team with the fastest mark of the four runners at 2:08, as she continued to show the improvements that she began last weekend at the Stanford Invitational. Bevins was also very solid in her 2:11 split moving Arkansas up several spots in the team standings.
        The Lady Razorbacks continue to compete at the Texas Relays on Friday with more relay competitions and the hurdles and pole vault.
