Athletics: Arkansas' Bucknam Adds Tenneessee State Champ

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Arkansas Razorback men's track and field head coach Chris Bucknam has added an 800-meter specialist for the 2009-10 season, he announced on Friday.

"It's great for our program to add another talent, like Leoman Momoh, to the middle distance group," Bucknam said. "He's really strong in the 400 and 800 meters and has the ability to contribute in open races and as a member of some very important relays."

Leoman Momoh is a native of Memphis, Tenn. and is a graduate of Cordova High School. He holds prep bests of 48.8 in the 400 meters and 1:51.81 in the 800 meters. He was the 2009 Tennessee State Champion at 800 meters (1:51.81) and as a member of the 4x400-meter (3:19.62) and 4x800-meter relays (7:52.01). Additionally, he took city, regional and sectional titles in the 800 meters and as a member of the 4x400-meter and 4x800-meter relays.

He did not lose an 800-meter race during the championship meets of his senior campaign. He took event wins at the MIAA City Championships, TSSAA AAA Section 4 Championships and in the prelims and finals of the Tennessee State Championships. He also picked up a race win at the Music City Distance Carnival (1:55.19).

Momoh holds the Cordova High School record in the 800 meters and as a member of the 4x800-meter and distance medley relays.

Momoh joins Omar Abdi (Charlestown, Ma.; distance), Reid Brasher (Ruston, La.; javelin), Drew Butler (The Woodlands, Texas; middle distance), Max Carroll (Shawnee, Kan.; javelin), Caleb Cross (Newport, Ark.; hurdles), Cameron Efurd (Rogers, Ark.; distance), Solomon Haile (Silver Spring, Md.; distance), Raymond Higgs (Freeport, Bahamas; jumps), Alex Kelly (Ottumwa, Iowa; sprints), Chris Muncie (El Paso, Texas; sprints) and Micah Washington (Fort Smith Ark.; jumps) as the new members of the Razorback squad for 2009-10
