Athletics: Dorian Ulrey Earns Weekly Honor

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arkansas Razorback junior Dorian Ulrey has been named the Southeastern Conference’s Runner of the Week, it was announced by the conference office on Tuesday.

At Saturday’s Razorback Invitational, Ulrey clocked a mile time of 3:57.60 to finish second behind Oklahoma State’s German Fernandez, the 2008 Gatorade National Boys Track and Field Athlete of the Year.

Ulrey’s time is an NCAA automatic qualifier, a personal best, leads the SEC by nearly five seconds and ranks ninth on Arkansas’ all-time list. Ulrey’s time is also the fastest clocked by an SEC student-athlete since former Hog Said Ahmed ran a 3:57.04 at the Iowa State Last Chance during the 2005 season.

Also noteworthy, Ulrey ran the lead leg of the distance medley relay Friday night before clocking his 3:57 mile Saturday afternoon. He registered a 1,200-meter split of 2:54.3 and paced the Razorbacks to an NCAA provisional-qualifying time in the event and the fastest time run in the nation and the SEC this season.

Arkansas men’s track and field will compete next at the UW Invitational, Jan. 30-31. Ulrey is scheduled to compete in the distance medley relay and the 3,000 meters. For more information on Arkansas Athletics, visit www.ArkansasRazorbacks.com.
