The powerhouse field will feature Cooper Teare of Oregon, the fastest entrance on paper with a personal best of 7:46.45, fellow teammate and sophomore Cole Hocker (7:57.26), as well as Iowa State’s Wesley Kiptoo (7:51.59) and Ole Miss’ Waleed Suliman (7:54.80) – all of whom have personal bests under the eight-minute mark.

Arkansas men’s head coach Chris Bucknam said in the build up to the meet that he’s hoping to use the quality lineups to secure qualifying marks for the NCAA and SEC Championships.

“This meet Oregon has a really good men’s team, so they are going to want to get some qualifying marks,” Arkansas men’s head coach Chris Bucknam said. “The 3k will be a little bit stronger.

Hunting Qualifying Times

“We would like to get the [qualifying mark] in the 3,000 where we have a lot of our distance runners entered,” added Bucknam. “We are looking for qualifying marks not only for the NCAA meet, but also the SEC Championships, where marks need to be among a top 24 descending order list.”

The likes of Gilbert Boit, Jacob McLeod, Ryan Murphy, Myles Richter, and Matt Young headline the list of starters for Arkansas.

Bucknam noted that Amon Kemboi would have moved up to the 3,000m this weekend after victories in the 1,000m (2:23.49) and mile (3:58.26) over the last two weeks.

However, Kemboi was not listed among the starters when last checked.

Saturday’s action starts at 11:15 a.m. ET with the continuation of the heptathlon, where Razorback Markus Ballengee is currently in second place, while running events begin at 1:30 p.m.

The women’s and men’s hurdles heats are the first track events listed for the second day.
