Athletics: NCAA Mideast Championships Up Next for Arkansas Women's Track

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- No. 16 Arkansas Razorback women's track and field will compete at the NCAA Mideast Regional Championships at the University of Louisville. Events will be contested Friday-Saturday, May 29-30, at Cardinal Park.

Live results can be found at ArkansasRazorbacks.com. A complete meet recap will be available at ArkansasRazorbacks.com shortly after the final event each day of competition.

Also competing at the NCAA Mideast Regional Championships will be Alabama, No. 17 Auburn, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, No. 3 LSU, Louisville, No. 10 Michigan, Michigan State, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Missouri, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Purdue, Wisconsin and No. 7 Tennessee.

Arkansas will be represented by 14 student-athletes in eight individual events plus the 4x400-meter relay. Potential relay legs for the 4x400M include Karen Thomas, Whitney Jones, Shelise Williams, Etienne Chaplin and Janine Davis.

Jones in the long jump, Williams in the 400 meters and Chaplin in the 100-meter hurdles are also competing in individual events.

While Louisville hosts the Mideast Championships, North Carolina A&T State is hosting the East Championships, Oklahoma the Midwest Championships and Oregon the West Championships.

A top five finish in any individual event and a top three finish in a relay automatically qualifies for the NCAA Championships, in Fayetteville next month. To be considered for an at-large bid, an individual athlete must finish sixth through 12th and relays must finish fourth through eighth.
