Huskers Continue to Impress at NCAA Track & Field Championships

A pair of Huskers earned USTFCCCA Honorable Mention on Day 2 of the NCAA Championships, as Brittni Wolczyk (javelin) and Raynesha Lewis (long jump) both earned the honor on Thursday at Hayward Field.

Wolczyk, a junior from Port Coquitlam, British Columbia, fell just short of matching the second-team All-America honors she took home each of the last two seasons, as she placed 17th with a throw of 158-9 (48.38m) to earn USTFCCCA Honorable Mention. Competing in her third NCAA Championships, Wolczyk posted her final mark on her third attempt.

In her first NCAA Championships appearance, Lewis took home USTFCCCA Honorable Mention in the long jump, as she placed 19th with her best wind-legal jump of the season, a mark of 19-11 (6.07m).

Action at the NCAA Championships continues Friday, the final day of the men’s competition and the last day Husker athletes will be in action in Eugene. Landon Bartel will be the first Husker in action, as he competes in the high jump at 7 p.m. (CT), followed by 2016 national champion Nick Percy and Carlos Davis in the discus competition at 7:05 p.m. Kaiwan Culmer will compete in the triple jump at 7:40 p.m. Both Antoine Lloyd and Luke Siedhoff will run in the finals of the 110-meter hurdles at 8:12 p.m.
