Lady'Backs Seeking Qualifiers in South Bend
        FAYETTEVILLE - The University of Arkansas Lady Razorback track team hopes that the impending snow storm that is expected to hit the South Bend, Ind., area on Friday can bring a blizzard of national qualifiers as the Lady'Backs start competition at the Meyo Invitational at the University of Notre Dame.
        Showcasing its whole team, Arkansas looks to improve its current list of NCAA qualifiers at the Meyo Invite which should give every Lady Razorback some of the best competition in the country as 23 teams descend on the Loftus Center.
        Headlining Arkansas' attack is junior Veronica Campbell who currently holds the second fastest mark in the nation in the 200-meter dash. Campbell is scheduled to compete in the 60-meter dash and post her second qualifier in as many competitions.
        "This is an oversized track that we were able to run very well on last year," Arkansas head coach Lance Harter said. "The quality of competition should be great and should allow us to post several national qualifiers."
        For Arkansas' distance team, the focus is the mile and 5,000-meter runs. With three Lady'Backs in the mile and another three in the 5,000, Arkansas is hoping that its athletes can push each other to several qualifying marks. Showcasing their abilities in the mile are juniors Erica Sigmont and Shiloh Whiting and senior Shannon Spaulding. The longer race has sophomores Jessie Gordon and Maureen Scott and redshirt freshman Laura Kerr.
        Competition at the Meyo Invitational begins on Friday evening at 5:00 p.m. and continues through Saturday afternoon. Friday night features several non-traditional events as well as the long jump, weight throw and 5,000 meters.
