Women’s Basketball

Another week where the Hogs split, losing the midweek game and getting a big win on the weekend. First the Hogs had an ice cold shooting night at Missouri, where they fell 71-53. But on Sunday the bench propelled them to an 83-62 win over Vanderbilt at home. Arkansas had a 14-0 run early in the first and the bench outscored the Commodores bench 33-2. Arkansas led 47-20 at halftime and never looked back, leading by as much as 32 in the game.

Gymnastics

The Hogs travelled to Tuscon and beat #18 Arizona 195.800-194.725. Arkansas took a big lead with the Vault in their second rotation. The score of 49.150 gave them a lead that they wouldn’t give up. That rotation was led by Kennedy Hambrick and Sydney McGlone, who each scored 9.875

Swimming and Diving

The team travelled to Dallas and swept a three team meet against SMU and Rice. Arkansas won seven of the 16 events, led by Anna Hopkin, who took part in winning three different events, including the 200M Medley Relay.

Track and Field

The indoor season kicked off with the Arkansas Invitational. The No. 1 ranked Women’s team made some big waves with two NCAA best marks. Lexi Jacobus has the nation’s best pole vault of the season and Peyton Chadwick was the top 200M time.

For the men, they got a school record in the weight throw of over 21 meters from Erich Sullins. They also got an impressive win in the 600M from Paralympic medalist Hunter Woodhall.
