Fayetteville, AR — You can’t come up with a better weekend than the one Arkansas distance star Dominique Scott is having (and it’s only 10pm on Saturday night).

A Very Happy Dominique Scott

Friday night she anchored the Arkansas distance medley team to a repeat NCAA crown at the 2015 NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships in the second fastest NCAA time ever.

Saturday night she dominated the NCAA 3000m versus a strong field, capturing her first individual NCAA title in 8:55.19.

During the post-race interview she found out the 3000m win had clinched the team title for Arkansas and coach Lance Harter, the first on the women’s side in program history.

Then she picked up her 3000m trophy and her boyfriend, former Arkansas runner, Cameron Efurd, said he wanted a photo with her. He popped onto one knee and asked her to marry him. She said yes.

To top it off Scott’s parents are here this weekend from South Africa. (We didn’t remember to ask Dominique if she still wants to run for the US. Last year she told LRC she hoped her boyfriend would propose before Rio. He took care of that in style this weekend.)

Congrats to Dominique and Cameron.
