The Nebraska track and field team closed its weekend at the Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays and the Bobcat Invitational on Saturday with a pair of titles and a school record.
Darius Luff highlighted the day, breaking the 110m hurdles school record to claim the title in 13.39. That is the second-fastest time clocked in the nation this season. The Lincoln-native is coming off of a successful indoor season, where he topped the all-time list in the 60m hurdles at the NCAA Indoor Championships and went on to take the bronze.
In the men’s shot put, Maxwell Otterdahl placed third with a mark of 63-11 (19.48m), while Kevin Shubert took eighth with a distance of 61-9 3/4 (18.84m).
Jenna Rogers cleared 5-10 1/2 (1.79m) in the high jump to claim fifth place. Velecia Williams placed ninth in the women’s long jump, leaping 19-9 (6.02m).
The Husker men (Jacob Hyde, Garrett Kaalund, Lorenzo Paissan, Kavian Kerr) raced to a seventh-place finish in the 4x200m relay with a 1:23.98.
At the Bobcat Invitational, Sadio Fenner won the 3000m steeplechase with a personal-best time of 9:20.42.
Madi Scholl set a new personal-best mark in the high jump, clearing 5-9 1/4 (1.76m) to finish as runner-up. Brooklyn Miller joined Scholl in the top five, placing fifth with a height of 5-7 1/4 (1.71m).
Terrol Wilson added a runner-up finish with a mark of 49-1 1/4 (14.97m) in the triple jump. Lotavia Brown set a big triple jump personal-best with a distance of 41-1 1/4 (12.53m) to place seventh.
Johanna Ilves clocked a 13.88 in the women’s 100m hurdles to place ninth. Sam Easley was NU’s top finisher in the men’s 400m, clocking a 48.73 to place 27th.
Nick Bryant, Easley, Cortez Ruiz and Niko Schultz teamed up to clock a 3:09.68 in the 4x400m relay and finish second.
Nebraska is set to return to competition April 6-8 at the Jim Click Shootout in Tucson, Ariz.
