Campbell Named SEC Athlete of the Week
Veronica Campbell        FAYETTEVILLE - After breaking the University of Arkansas Lady Razorback record in the 100-meter dash, junior Veronica Campbell was named the Southeastern Conference female runner of the week by the league office in Birmingham, Ala., on Wednesday afternoon.
        Campbell, who had competed in just one race prior to last weekend's Michael Johnson Classic in Waco, Texas, ran a solid 11.52 during prelims, then blistered the Baylor University track during finals with a school record 11.19 in the finals. The time is the second fastest in the NCAA this season and leads the SEC by more than a tenth of a second.
        The athlete of the week award comes on the heels of Campbell's SEC indoor track athlete of the year honor which she won a week ago. Campbell earned that award based on her national championship and SEC and NCAA Championship record performances in the 200 meters.
        A three-time all-American during the indoor season, Campbell's mark destroyed that of former Lady Razorback great Elisha Brewer who clocked 11.29 during the 1998 season. The mark also gives Campbell Arkansas' school record in almost every ballistic event under 400 meters.
        "Once again, this just proves how special Veronica is," Arkansas head coach Lance Harter said. "She opens the season with a school record and is really just getting started. She is an amazing athlete and I'm anxious to see what she can do the rest of the season and beyond."
Veronica Campbell        The female runner of the week award is Campbell's second in 2004 and goes along with the honor she earned on Feb. 19, during the indoor track season. It is also the fourth athlete of the week honor earned by a Lady Razorback track and field athlete this season including cross country and indoor track.
        Arkansas travels Wednesday and kicks off the 2004 Penn Relays on Thursday morning with the women's pole vault. Competition runs through Saturday evening with Lady Razorbacks taking part in numerous individual and relay events. The Lady Razorbacks are scheduled to compete in five Championship of America competitions with the grand prize being a Penn Relays wagon wheel.
