Harris, Percy Named B1G Athletes of the Week
The Nebraska track and field team collected two weekly awards from the Big Ten Conference on Wednesday, as Lakayla Harris was named the Big Ten Women's Track Athlete of the Week, and Nick Percy was voted the Big Ten Men's Field Athlete of the Week.
Harris won the Nebraska Invitational 200 meters with a wind-aided personal-best time of 23.15 on Saturday at Ed Weir Stadium. Harris' mark ranks tied for sixth in NU history in any conditions. The Big Ten weekly honor is the first of her career.
Percy was the champion of the discus with a mark of 204-5 (62.32m), his second-best throw this season. Percy remains second in the nation in the discus with his season-best mark of 205-1 (62.50m). The honor was the fifth-career weekly honor for the senior from Ventnor, England and the second this season.
Harris, Percy and the rest of the Huskers will compete at the Big Ten Outdoor Championships this Friday through Sunday in Bloomington, Indiana.
