Lady'Backs Conclude Relays with a Third
        AUSTIN, Texas - The University of Arkansas Lady Razorback track team concluded their weekend at the 77th annual Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays on Saturday with several strong performances including a third-place finish in the distance medley relay.
        Leading off with senior Londa Bevins, the Lady Razorbacks got off to a good start before Shaneatra Neely took the stick and kept that Lady Razorbacks in position. Junior Aneita Denton was handed the baton and duplicated her efforts from Thursday in the 4x800 relay with another tough leg before handing to junior Erica Sigmont who anchored the team to third place.
        "I thought that we ran well toady," Arkansas head coach Lance Harter said. "This is the first time that we've really had to deal with hot weather and it was nice to get a feel for this track. The University of Texas is hosting the NCAA Championships in June and now we have a good idea of what the facility and track are like."
        In the 100-meter hurdle finals, junior Kasia Williams once again showed her abilities with a fourth-place finish. Running against some of the nation's fastest runners, Williams got out of the blocks well and was at the first hurdle with the leaders. Williams ran 13.27 in the finals, nearly equaling her preliminaries time of 13.20.
        Running with Williams in the race was Neely who finished seventh in the hurdles with a mark of 13.74. Both runners have now posted NCAA regional qualifiers.
        Also making finals action was junior LaShaunte'a Moore in the 100-meter dash. Moore posted a season best of 11.58 during prelims to finish fifth overall and returned to action on Saturday, running a time of 11.66. The times are just outside of Arkansas' all-time top five for the event.
        The Lady Razorbacks concluded the day with the pole vault where Stacie Manuel again showed that she is recovered from her injury that sidelined her during the indoor season by posting another regional qualifier. Manuel was the Lady'Backs top finisher with a clearance of 12 feet 9 ½ inches to finish seventh. Senior Jennifer (Culp) Lincoln finished 14th with a jump of 12-3 ½.
        The Lady Razorbacks are back in action next weekend when they participate in the John McDonnell Invitational in Fayetteville. For more information about Lady Razorback track or about Arkansas women's athletics, please go to www.ladybacks.com.
