Things have gotten a little rough for Mike Neighbors’ side, who have lost a second straight close one and are now at five straight losses. Arkansas fell by two to No. 17 Kentucky in what would have been a massive away win if they had pulled it off. Regardless, the Hogs are now sitting at 16 wins with four regular season games plus the SEC Tournament to go.
The No. 7 Ranked Razorbacks went to Puerto Rico for a tournament and finished second out of 14 teams. They were four strokes behind Kent State and were able to top teams like Virginia Tech, Northwestern, and SEC foes Georgia. Maria Fassi was the best finisher for the Hogs, finishing at even par in a tie for fourth overall.
The Hogs had a season high score but fell to No. 11 Auburn 197.100-196.175. It was the second time the Hogs cleared the 196 mark. Arkansas dropped behind in the first two rotations but were able to nearly comeback with strong floor and beam rotations, scoring 49.250 in both of those rotations.
The Hogs went down to Mexico for a tournament and went 3-1 against some pretty solid programs. The one loss came on a walk off to No. 5 Washington, who went to the College World Series last year. They beat North Dakota State, Northern Colorado, and Sacramento State. The Hogs outscored their opponents 26-3 in those three games and are 8-1 on the season.
In their final matches before SEC play, the Hogs split a weekend doubleheader against Oklahoma and UMKC. Arkansas lost 5-2 to the Sooners but beat UMKC by a score of 6-1. The Hogs go into conference play with a 9-4 overall record.
After a 7-0 start to the spring season, the Hogs have now lost three straight and still have a matchup against No. 12 Kansas before conference play begins. The most recent loss was a trip out to Los Angeles where the Hogs fell to Loyola Marymount 4-1.
