This last year, Hog fans remained connected by a common love of Razorback sports. The pandemic has been hard, but that hasn’t kept the Razorback athletic teams from competing at their best.
In recent weeks, Arkansas’ teams have risen to the top of the rankings – an accomplishment worthy of tooting the proverbial horn, or better yet calling the Hogs!
Men’s Basketball, led by Coach Eric Musselman, climbed to eighth in the nation in the AP poll March 8, the highest ranking by the program since 1995.
Razorback Baseball, with Coach Dave Van Horn at the helm, took the #1 spot in college baseball rankings, leading all six national polls for the first time in program history.
Women’s Basketball senior guard Chelsea Dungee set a school record in a Feb. 24 win against Auburn with the most career points (2,074) – more than any Razorback athlete ever!
Razorback Gymnastics, led by coach Jordyn Wieber, set a program record-breaking meet score of 197.425 in a March 5 win over No. 12 Auburn.
Razorback Softball Coach Courtney Deifel became the fastest coach in program history to reach 150 wins at Arkansas, doing so in 259 games.
Arkansas Razorback athletes showed up in the classroom, too, with a collective GPA of 3.21 in fall 2020 at the University of Arkansas
2021-22 Razorback sports action is underway now!
