Five members of the Nebraska track and field team punched their tickets to the NCAA Championships on Thursday at the NCAA West Preliminary Round on the University of Texas campus.
Fighting off strong winds and two delays from lightning, Nick Percy (discus), Tierra Williams (long jump), Jazmin McCoy (long jump), James White (high jump) and Landon Bartel (high jump) became the first five Huskers to lock in a spot at the NCAA Championships. Four of the five NU qualifiers were freshmen or sophomores.
