FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (Univ. of Ark.) - Following two collegiate-leading finishes at the Arkansas vs. Texas Dual, Dominique Scott has been named Southeastern Conference Co-Runner of the Week. Scott helped the Razorbacks take down No. 1 Texas on Friday at Randal Tyson Track Center.
Coming in with an indoor mile PR of 4:44.78, Scott finished the day with a 4:38.49 win for the 2014 collegiate lead by more than two seconds over The Bowerman Watch List member Laura Roesler of Oregon. The time ranks fifth-best in school history. Later in the meet, she ran the final leg of the distance medley relay team that finished in a collegiate-leading time of 11:25.58.
This is the second weekly award for Scott this season. She was named USTFCCCA National Runner of the Week on Monday.
Scott and the Razorbacks will have the week off before returning to action January 31 as Arkansas hosts the Razorback Invitational at Randal Tyson Track Center.
