Former Lady'Back Advances at Trials
By Phil Pierce, UA WOMEN'S COMMUNICATIONS

        SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Former University of Arkansas Lady Razorback track stars Nicole Teter and Gi-Gi Miller did their best to secure 2004 U.S. Olympic team bids with solid performances at the trials in Sacramento, Calif.
        Teter advanced to the finals of the 800-meter run with a fourth-place effort in the semifinals while Miller completed her heptathlon competition with a sixth-place finish. Teter's advancement allows her to run in the finals late Monday night.
        For Teter, a former U.S. Champion in the 800 meters, her time of 2:01.05 is not her career best in the event, but looked like an effort that could advance to the games. While she finished fourth overall, she won her heat easily taking the top spot by more than a second.
        In the heptathlon, Miller put together another solid day, but her final score of 5,938 points was only good for sixth overall. Picking up 877 points in the long jump, Miller flew to the seventh-best jump in the competition at 19 feet, 11 ¾ inches. She came back in the javelin, one of her weaker events, to put together a near career best 119-6 for 599 points. Needing an excellent 800-meter run, Miller clocked 2:16.79, again the seventh-best time of the competition, for 868 points to get to her final total.
        The only current Lady Razorback to take to the track was senior Jessica Johnson in the high jump. Still nursing a leg injury suffered at the Southeastern Conference Championships, Johnson failed to clear the opening bar of 5-10.5, a mark that would have been a quarter inch below her season best for 2004.
