Women’s Cross Country

The first conference title of the year went to the Razorbacks! The Hogs won their sixth consecutive SEC Cross Country title with the win. All five runners finished in the top-10, and four were named to the All-SEC list. Katrina Robinson led the way with a second place finish. Lauren Gregory and Carina Viljoen were close behind, finishing third and fourth.

Men’s Cross Country

Immediately after the Women’s race, the men would take second place, but got an individual championship. Gilbert Boit won the race, and he and teammate Cameron Griffith were named All-SEC. Also finishing in the top1- was Ryan Murphy, who was able to finish on the All-Freshman list.

Soccer

The Hogs lost their regular season finale on the road to Florida, and it placed them in fourth in the SEC standings. That gives them a spot in the SEC Tournament quarterfinals where they’ll play fifth seeded Ole Miss. The Hogs will want some revenge as the Rebels won 3-1 in Oxford earlier in the year.

Swimming and Diving

At least someone took care of Vandy this weekend. The Hogs obliterated Vandy so bad, I had to double check if it was a type. Arkansas won by a score of 160-45. The Razorbacks were able to win all 11 races and swept the podium on two separate occasions.

Volleyball

Arkansas won their first SEC road game of the season, beating Mississippi State in a sweep. The Hogs were able to cruise in the first two sets, winning each 25-18, before winning the third set 25-22. Later in the week they dropped a straight set match against Auburn, putting up a valiant 28-30 third set in the process.
