The No. 8 University of Arkansas men’s outdoor track and field team competed in the Mt. Sac Relays where Stanley Kebenei was marked for the fastest 3,000-meter steeplechase this season.

While still far from the NCAA record of 8:12.39 that Henry Rono of Washington State set in 1978, Kebenei finished the 3,000-meter steeplechase event with a time of 8:31.86.

Kebenei currently leads the NCAA this season in the 3,000-meter steeplechase after he finished second in the event last season.

Alongside Kebenei, Cale Wallace posted a personal-best in the 1,500 meter run.

Wallace finished 22nd overall with a time of 3:49.77 to better his previous best of 3:50.23.

While Wallace competed in the 1,500 meters in the open, Campbell competed in the same event in the Invitational and finished seventh with a time of 3:42.30. He finished within two seconds of the first place runner.

Strictly amongst collegiate runners, Campbell finished third.

Next, Arkansas will head to Des Moines, Iowa to compete in the Drake Relays.
