Lady'Backs Open Season Ranked 12th
        FAYETTEVILLE - The University of Arkansas Lady Razorback track team opens its 2004 outdoor season ranked 12th in the nation in the first Trackwire Power Rankings announced Tuesday afternoon.
        The Lady Razorbacks ended the indoor season with the same ranking, but finished the season tied for 10th at the NCAA Championships and hope that the outdoor season shows a similar improvement.
        "It is always nice to be ranked among the nation's best," Arkansas head coach Lance Harter said. "The rankings will change quite a bit between now and the end of the season, but this is certainly a good start."
        Tied with Brigham Young University for 12th, the Trackwire prognosticators have predicted 22 points for the Lady Razorbacks at the 2004 NCAA Championships. Trackwire bases its rankings on projected order of finish for all athletes in all events at the national championships.
        Currently, the Lady Razorbacks have 11 athletes qualified for the NCAA Mideast Regional championship to be held in Baton Rouge, La., March 28-29. To qualify for the national meet, athletes must finish in the top five at the regional or be among the nation's top qualifiers by time. Arkansas has six marks that rank among the top three in the region with sophomore Maureen Scott holding the top spot in both the steeplechase and 5,000-meter runs.
        The Lady Razorbacks are back in action this weekend at the McDonnell Invitational at John McDonnell Field where they get a chance to compete against some of the toughest competition in the region. Events begin at 9:00 a.m. with finals kicking off at 5:15 p.m. For more information about Lady Razorback track or about Arkansas women's athletics go to www.ladybacks.com.
