Huskers Continue Action in Kansas and California
The Nebraska track and field team concluded action at the Bryan Clay Invitational and continued competition at the Kansas Relays on Friday.
For the second consecutive day, the Huskers had one addition to the NU top-10 list at the Bryan Clay Invitational. George Kusche ran a PR time of 3:41.45 in the Invitational 1,500 meters. His time moved him up to No. 6 all-time in the event at Nebraska.
"George (Kusche) really impressed people because he took the lead in his heat and ran away from the field," said Nebraska Distance Coach David Harris. "He is training and racing very well, and this was only his second race of the outdoor season. We are keeping him as fresh as possible for the big races at the end of the year."
Ty Moss finished seventh in the 800 meters with a personal-best time of 1:48.32.
"Ty Moss had another solid race in the men's 800 meters out here in Azusa, California. He had a nice PR with still three weeks to go until the Big Ten Championships."
At the Kansas Relays, Candice Dominguez was the runner-up in the high jump with a season-best leap of 5-8 3/4 (1.75m). Petra Luteran also placed in the high jump and finished fifth with a jump of 5-5 (1.65m).
The Huskers went 5-6-7 in the men's discus throw. Burger Lambrechts Jr. was fifth with a PR of 188-5 (57.43m), Carols Davis finished sixth with a throw of 187-11 (57.29m) and Khalil Davis placed seventh with a toss of 183-7 (55.96m).
Tony Nou qualified for the 400-meter final with a time of 48.25.
Competition wraps up Saturday with the Huskers competing in the final day of both the Kansas Relays and Beach Invitational. Live results for both meets can be followed on Huskers.com
