Campbell Named SEC Indoor Track Runner of the Year
Veronica Campbell        FAYETTEVILLE - University of Arkansas Lady Razorback sprinter Veronica Campbell was named the Southeastern Conference indoor track women's runner of the year by the league office in Birmingham, Ala., on Friday.
        The NCAA Champion at 200 meters this winter, Campbell ended her first season in Fayetteville with a host of honors including the U.S. Track Coaches Association's south central region athlete of the year, SEC champion and national champion. Her time of 22.43 in the 200 was the fastest in the world this year and broke the collegiate and NCAA Championships records.
        The Jamaica native earned three all-America honors during the indoor season in the 60- and 200-meter dashes and as a member of Arkansas' 4x400-meter relay. She also set the SEC championship record when she ran 22.67 at the league meet in February.
Veronica Campbell        "Veronica is a special athlete," Arkansas head track coach Lance Harter said. "She is incredibly talented and has a bright future ahead of her. She deserves this award for all the hard work that she put in throughout the season. Our goal now is to keep her healthy for the rest of the outdoor season so that she has the opportunity to compete at the Olympics in August."
        Campbell becomes the third Lady Razorback to earn indoor athlete of the year honors, and the first since Amy Yoder Begley during the 2000 season. Sarah Schwald was the first Lady'Back to take the title in 1995. While Arkansas runners have earned a total of 14 athlete of the year awards in cross country, indoor and outdoor track, Campbell's award is just the fourth won during a track season.
