    2.     RANKED FOES: This week’s meet features a handful of athletes from teams ranked in the USTFCCCA’s top 25, including a pair of top-10 foes on the women’s side in fifth-ranked Arkansas and No. 10 BYU. On the men’s side, BYU is the highest-ranked team in the field at 13th, while Arkansas is 23rd this week and Oklahoma State comes in at No. 25.

    3.     #EVENTSQUAD: Arkansas State’s women are all over the USTFCCCA’s first #EventSquad rankings of the outdoor season, coming in at 10th nationally in the discus throw with an average of 47.54m (156-0.0). The Red Wolves are 16th in both the 100m hurdles (14.18) and shot put (14.07m/46-2.0), while ranking 26th in the high jump (1.62m/5-3.75).
