FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (1/25/08) The University of North Texas track and field team will look to continue its early season success as they compete against some of the nation’s top track and field programs beginning today in Fayetteville, Ark., on the campus of the University of Arkansas.
A total of 43 universities and club teams will compete at the two-day Razorback Invitational taking place at the Randal Tyson Track Center on the campus of the University of Arkansas. The invite will consist of seven men’s and four women’s teams ranked in the top 25.
