Seniors lead No. 19 Arkansas over Utah

by muslimsdonteatme on January 30, 2010

Arkansas seniors Yi-Ting Siow and Leah Pierce each won two events in their final home meet to lead the Razorback swimming and diving team over Utah on Saturday at Arkansas Natatorium.

Arkansas honored Siow and Pierce along with fellow senior Lynette Ng and juniors Megan Haskins and Kristen Keith in a ceremony before the meet.

Thirteen event wins carried the Hogs to a 195-100 victory over the Utes, giving Arkansas (6-2, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) a commanding victory in its final home meet of the season.

“I was very pleased with today’s performances,” Arkansas swimming coach Jeff Poppell said. “It has been rough around here the last few days with the winter storm and we have had to battle some adversity going into this competition. We weren’t even sure if we were going to be able to get the meet off. The girls did a fantastic job competing today and racing. I couldn’t be any more pleased with that.

“Today was probably one of our best team performances of the year, top to bottom. Improving the little things was one of the things we wanted to do going into this meet and we felt like we did a fantastic job of that. The strength of the performances today will give the girls a lot of confidence and motivation going into the SEC Championships, which is what we wanted.” Read More

EA really only got the hitiorscal teams entrance right, and since Arkansas is a middle tier hitiorscal team, and I can’t remember Oregon really being consistently good before these past two seasons they get th short end of the stick
