BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Arkansas men’s track and field senior Kenzo Cotton was named the Southeastern Conference’s Co-Runner of the Week. He was part of three of Razorback victories with wins as the anchor leg of the 4-x-100m and 4-x-400m relays while sailing to the 100 meter dash title in the season opener this past weekend at the Arkansas Spring Invitational.
Serving as the anchor in the 4-x-100 meter relay, Cotton along with Kristoffer Hari, Kemar Mowatt and Obi Igbokwe finished first in the event and set a new meet record with a time of 39.31. Cotton followed that up with a 10.12 time in the 100 meter dash, the fastest in the NCAA early on in the outdoor season. Cotton ended the day as the anchor on the 4-x-400 meter relay squad of Travius Chambers, Kemar Mowatt and John Winn placing first with a time of 3:10.30.
“Kenzo did a great job this past weekend opening up in the 100” said assistant coach Travis Geopfert. “The relays is the main thing at the Texas Relays, he’s going to run on some relays down there as well.”
He shared the honor with Ilolo Izu of Texas A&M who won the 400 meter hurdles at the UTSA Roadrunner Invitational. Cotton and the Razorbacks return this weekend for the Texas Relays in Austin, Texas and the Stanford Invitational in Palo Alto, California.
