Arkansas sweeps SEC indoor titles

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Andrew Irwin cleared a career-best 18 feet, 4½ inches to win the pole vault and Arkansas teammate Tarik Batchelor won the triple jump at 54-2¾ and the Razorbacks swept the team titles Sunday in the Southeastern Conference Indoor Track and Field Championships.

The Razorbacks finished with 152½ points for their seventh SEC indoor men's title in the last eight years and 19th overall since joining the conference in 1992. Florida was second at 117.

The women's competition came down to the final event, with Arkansas overcoming a one-point deficit in the 1,600-meter relay when Regina George, Sparkle McKnight, Gwendolyn Flowers and Chrisuna Williams pulled away from LSU and the rest of the field. The Razorbacks finished with 116½ points, five more than LSU.
