Boit will lead a distance group after he won the 2019 SEC Indoor title in the 5,000 meters and ran a leg of the All-american DMR that finished sixth last season.
He’ll be joined by teammate Hunter Woodhall, a two-time Paralympic medalist, who is looking to earn Firstteam All-america honors for the second straight year in the 4x400-meter relay. The junior turned in a seventhplace finish in the 400-meter dash at the SEC Indoor Championships in 2019.
Arkansas is joined by fellow SEC squads No. 2 LSU, No. 6 Texas A&M and No. 9 Florida in the top-10. The Hogs will be in the hunt for their ninth straight finish inside the top-15 and the program’s 21st national title.
