Huskers Prepare for Annual Instraquad Meet

By NU Athletic Communications
The Nebraska track and field team kicks of its 2014 season with the annual Nebraska Intrasquad meet on Saturday, Dec. 14 at the Devaney Center Indoor Track. Fans are invited and will enjoy free admission along with the opportunity to catch the Huskers competing for the first time this year.

The Huskers have compiled a successful history, including 77 individual NCAA Champions and 611 All-Americans. The NU looks to improve upon the 2013 season where Chad Wright became a four-time All-American with a pair of awards in the discus and shot put competitions while the men’s team claimed the 2013 Big Ten Outdoor Conference title.

On the women’s side, the Scarlet and Cream have their sights set on a Big Ten title after finishing runner-up last season and return sophomore Maggie Malone who earned high marks in the javelin throw on her way to second team All-America honors. Senior Anne Martin is also back after receiving honorable-mention All-America accolades in theheptathlon with a personal-best 5,414 points.

For youth (grades 8th and under), there will be a chance to show off their speed in the Little Huskers youth 60 and 100-meter dashes. Prior to the meet, there will be Valentino's pizza and water for the first 150 youth participants. Pizza and water will be handed out starting at 11 a.m. by the Devaney Center Indoor Track north entrance.

Please pre-register your son or daughter for the youth races by sending your child’s name, age,
elementary school and the race(s) he or she would like to run to You may sign up at the event, but we strongly encourage your early registration to ensure your child’s participation. If you have any questions, please contact Charlie Bastian at 402-472-0775 or
