Lady'Backs Take to the Road
        FAYETTEVILLE - The 10th-ranked University of Arkansas Lady Razorback track and field team takes to the road for the first time in 2004 when they travel to Norman, Okla., to compete at the J.D. Martin Invitational at the University of Oklahoma.
        Competition at the Mosier Indoor Center is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. with field events and running events start at 12:30 p.m. The schedule is rolling and will run as fast as the athletes can get prepared for their races.
        As a team, the Lady Razorbacks improved tremendously between weeks one and two of the season and hope that another week brings even better marks. With one automatic NCAA qualifier, Arkansas is counting on its limited competition squad this weekend to provide maximum results.
        "I think that even though we are resting some people for next weekend, we still have a very potent team going to Oklahoma," Arkansas head coach Lance Harter said. "Almost all of our sprinters are traveling and each has been knocking on the door for a qualifier. Erin Anderson is ready to make a breakthrough in the pole vault and we have some younger distance runners that are at a place in their training that they should improve even more."
        The Lady Razorback coaching staff is eager to see what junior Aneita Denton and senior all-American Dawnyell Fletcher can accomplish during Saturday's competition. Both are making their 2004 debuts in an off event, the 600-yard run, which is only slightly shorter than their main event, the 800 meters. Also returning to action is sprinter LaShaunte'a Moore who ran the third fastest time in Lady Razorback history in the 60-meter dash in her opening competition, but sat out last weekend as a precaution following a minor traffic accident.
        Last season, the Lady Razorbacks returned from the J.D. Martin Invitational gloating thanks to several tremendous marks and a school record. Arkansas posted four NCAA qualifiers at the meet and former Lady Razorback April Steiner eclipsed her own vaulting record. While the Lady'Backs may be hard pressed to repeat the performance, Arkansas' coaches feel that nothing is impossible.
        "To look at the improvements from week one to week two, I would say that this could be an even more productive weekend for us than it was last year," Harter said.
