By NU Athletic Communications

Lincoln - Three meet records were set and fans got their first chance to see the 2018 Nebraska track and field team in action on Saturday, as the red team defeated the white team by a score of 130-120 at the annual intrasquad meet at the Devaney Center Indoor Track.

Senior Nick Percy bested his own meet record in the weight throw, as he won the event with a throw of 65-11 3/4 (20.11m). 

Ashleigh Carr won the womens 600m with a time of 1:32.20, which set a meet record.

The women's 4x400m relay team of Lakayla Harris, Kierra Griggs, Haley Harsin and Chelsey Jones shaved nearly three seconds off the meet record, as they won the event with a time of 3:45.99.

All-American Kaiwan Culmer won the triple jump with a mark of 51-3 (15.62m).

Saturday also offered the opportunity for young Husker fans to get out onto the same track that the Huskers run on, as they were able to run in both the Lil' Husker 100-meter and 60-meter dashes.

The Huskers will host the Graduate Classic to open the 2018 indoor season Jan. 12-13 at the Devaney Center Indoor Track.
