Huskers Cap B1G Championships with Six Titles​

"The Husker men finished in third place in the team standings with 90 points, while the women tied for seventh with 51 points. The Iowa men (117) and Minnesota women (102) were crowned team champions.

Mayson Conner found the top spot on the high jump podium for the third time in his career. After winning the high jump title both indoors and outdoors as a freshman in 2019, Conner came in first for a third time on Saturday by clearing 7-2 1/2 (2.20m).

The Huskers swept the Big Ten high jump titles, as freshman Jenna Rogers claimed the women's gold medal with a clearance of 5-11 1/4 (1.81m). Rogers was perfect on her first three heights to clinch the win.

Alex Talley brought home the weight throw title with a toss of 72-3 (22.02m). The first-year Husker was a two-time Summit League weight throw champion at North Dakota State and placed sixth at the NCAA Indoor Championships last year in the event.

Papay Glaywulu repeated as the Big Ten indoor triple jump champion, leaping a season-best 52-0 (15.85m) on his second attempt to defend his title.

Seven Huskers Qualify for NCAA Indoor Championships​

The eight entries are the most for the Huskers at the NCAA Indoor Championships since qualifying eight in 2015.

Nebraska's qualifiers are Darius Luff (60m hurdles), Mayson Conner (high jump), Jenna Rogers (high jump), Darby Thomas (long jump), Burger Lambrechts Jr. (shot put), Alex Talley (shot put, weight throw) and Axelina Johansson (shot put).


Nebraska thrower Alex Talley was named the Big Ten Field Athlete of the Championships on Wednesday after a vote by the league's head coaches.

Nebraska track and field senior Burger Lambrechts Jr. was named the Big Ten Men's Field Athlete of the Year for the second straight year, the conference office announced on Wednesday.
Two tidbits from his bio that I thought were interesting:
Personal
Born Aug. 6, 1998...parents are Burger and Deirdre...father, Burger Sr., was a two-time Olympic shot putter and three-time African champion.
He is 23 years old, going on 24, so he is older than many of the other athletes he is competing against which can be an advantage in the weight throws.
Impressive that his Dad is a two-time Olympian.

Maxwell Otterdahl, already crowned the shot put champion on Saturday, made it a double on Sunday by winning the discus title. The first-year Husker thrower set a new personal best of 190-11 (58.19m) to claim top honors.

Mayson Conner, the Big Ten indoor high jump champion, came up clutch on his final attempt at 7-2 1/2 (2.20m). Needing a clearance to avoid a runner-up finish, Conner hit his mark, and it was enough to give the McCool Junction native a fourth career Big Ten gold medal. With Jenna Rogers also winning the indoor and outdoor high jump double, the Nebraska track and field program claimed all four Big Ten high jump gold medals in 2022.

"Otterdahl won the men's shot put title with a mark of 64-8 (19.71m) on his fifth attempt. His mark tied with Ohio State's Hayden Tobias for the best throw, but Otterdahl claimed the gold medal by having the better second throw between the two (63-6, 19.35m). It's the first career conference title for the sophomore.

Burger Lambrechts Jr., the Big Ten indoor shot put champion, finished third with a throw of 63-11 (19.48m) to collect the bronze medal. It was the fifth career Big Ten medal for Lambrechts Jr. Kevin Shubert placed sixth in the event at 61-9 (18.82m), a new personal best.

Rogers won the women's high jump gold medal, giving her both the Big Ten indoor and outdoor crowns. She became the first Husker woman to sweep conference indoor and outdoor high jump titles since Na'Tassia Vice did so in the Big 12 in 2004. Rogers was the only high jumper to clear 5-11 1/2 (1.82m)."

"Three other Huskers scored team points for the NU women in the event. Riley Masten (5-9 1/4, 1.76m) and Madison Yerigan (5-9 1/4, 1.76m) tied for fifth place. Brooklyn Miller cleared the same height but on her second attempt and placed seventh, giving the Husker women 19 points in the competition.

LaQwasia Stepeney picked up her first career Big Ten medal, finishing second in the long jump with a mark of 20-4 1/2 (6.21m). Stepney's jump was just half of an inch shy of the winner, Ohio State's Alexus Pyles.

Micaylon Moore picked up the bronze medal in the men's long jump with a new personal best of 25-0 3/4 (7.64m). In his fourth career Big Ten conference meet, Moore medaled for the first time and picked up six team points for the men. Passmore Mudundulu earned a team point as well with an eighth-place finish in the long jump, as he posted a jump of 23-8 3/4 (7.23m).

As the men's decathlon concluded, Till Steinforth totaled 7,427 points to finish in fifth place and score four team points for the Big Red. He ran the 110-meter hurdles in a personal-record time of 14.59. Kolby Heinerikson ended the decathlon in ninth place with 6,900 points, including a PR in the pole vault of 14-9 (4.50m).

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - Four Nebraska track and field women qualified for the NCAA Outdoor Championships with their performances at the NCAA West Preliminary Round on Thursday, giving the Huskers a combined seven qualifiers at the midway point of the four-day meet.

Freshman thrower Axelina Johansson is on her way to the NCAA Outdoor Championships in the shot put for the first time. Her throw of 58-7 1/2 (17.87m) was the No. 2 throw at the regional and easily earned her one of the 12 bids to nationals. Johansson placed 11th at the NCAA Indoor Championships in the shot put in March.

Sophomore Maddie Harris will compete in the javelin at Eugene for the second year in a row. The two-time Big Ten champion and school-record holder only needed one throw on Thursday, as her first mark of 179-3 (54.64m) was the third-best throw in the regional.

Joining Harris in the javelin at nationals for the second year in a row will be Mirta Kulisic, who threw 168-3 (51.29m) to qualify with the ninth-best throw. Her qualifying mark also came on her first attempt.

Finally, LaQwasia Stepney qualified for the NCAA Championships for the first time in her Husker career. Her long jump mark of 20-5 1/4 (6.23m) on her first attempt held up as the 11th-best jump and earned her a bid to nationals in two weeks.
