The lone bright spot was Kayla Wilkinson, the three-time Big 12 javelin champion had the fifth best overall throw for the day, good enough to advance to tomorrow’s finals.
After that, things didn’t go well. Junior Natalja Zarcenko was 21st in the women’s 1,500-meter run and did not advance. Nebraska freshman Nicholas Gordon was 13th in the men’s long jump finals coming up about a foot shorter than his jump in the prelims. NU’s Adam Dailey was eighth in his 400 hurdles heat, and Keith Lloyd was 13th in the men’s shot put qualifying.
