NU Recruiting Class Labeled Top Ten

By NU Athletic Communications

Nebraska's 2014 women's track and field recruiting class came in at No. 10 in the latest rankings compiled by the Track & Field News as Head Coach Gary Pepin and his staff continue to attract first-class student-athletes to Lincoln.

The class includes three signees from Nebraska, including two-time pole vault state champion Allexis Menghini from North Platte, Neb., three-time state champion Tierra Williams from Auburn, Neb. and jumper Casey Seberger from Lexington, Neb. Also included is 2012 IAAF World Junior Silver Medalist and 400-meter specialist Kadecia Baird from Brooklyn, N.Y.

Along with Australian Melissa-Maree Farrington and Jamaican Chantal Duncan, the Huskers will feature newcomers from 10 different states who will join NU senior standouts Anne Martin, Ellie Grooters and Annie Jackson. Nebraska looks to make another run at the Big Ten Indoor Championship, while improving on last year's sixth-place outdoor finish.

Oregon tops the annual collegiate recruiting list with Texas and Duke coming in second and third, respectively.

The Huskers will begin competition on Saturday, Dec. 14 at Noon when they host the Nebraska Intrasquad at the Devaney Center Indoor Track.
