BIRMINGHAM -- Seemingly sprinting through his third indoor campaign as a Razorback, junior Obi Igbokwe has been selected as the Southeastern Conference Runner of the Week for the third time this season by the league office.


Already ranked third in the nation in the 400-meter dash, Igbokwe focused on his turnover and speed work this past weekend at the Arkansas Qualifier and was rewarded with an indoor personal best in the 200 of 20.69. His performance is the second-fastest in the SEC so far this year and ranks him at No. 7 on the NCAA leader boards. Igbokwe also moved up to No. 6 on Arkansas’ all-time bests list.


Arkansas will return to action next weekend in College Station, Texas, on a mission to defend its league title at the 2018 Southeastern Conference Indoor Championships. The Razorbacks are the winningest indoor program in the conference, having captured 22 titles since 1992.

BIRMINGHAM -- Arkansas newcomer Janeek Brown has been named the Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Week, following her outstanding performance in the 60-meter hurdles at the Razorbacks’ regular season finale last weekend in Fayetteville, Arkansas at the Randal Tyson Track Center.


The fastest qualifier out of the 60 hurdle prelims, off a time of 8.20, Brown raced to a personal best of 8.15 in the finals to win the event. The Kingston, Jamaica native currently ranks 14th in the NCAA and is the second-fastest freshman in the country in the 60 hurdles. Brown’s performance also checks in at No. 4 on Arkansas’ all-time bests list.


With the indoor regular season behind them the Razorbacks will shift their focus to postseason competition, looking to pick up the program’s 12th-consecutive Southeastern Conference title next weekend in College Station, Texas at the 2018 SEC Indoor Championships.
