Track team adds
Drake Relays titles
By Jay Saunders
DES MOINES, Iowa - Last
weekend wasn’t just another day at
the races for the Nebraska men’s and
women’s track and field teams; it was
the 89th annual Drake Relays.
The Drake Relays is the second
largest outdoor track and field meet
in the country. The relays attract some
of the best high school, college and
professional athletes from across the
Eighteen thousand people attend
ed the second day of the two-day
competition. It was the 33rd year in a
row that Drake’s Jim Duncan Track
was sold out.
Traditionally, the Comhuskers are
well represented at the Drake Relays.
That was the case again this year.
Some Husker athletes went to the
Penn Relays, but NU sent more than
30 athletes to Drake.
The Husker men have won a total
of 60 events since 1910 at the relays,
and the women have won 42. No
other school has as many combined
wins at the relays.
“Nebraska has always been one of
the major schools to come up here,”
NU assistant coach Jay Dirksen said.
“This week is more of a fun week for

weekend. On Friday, sophomore
Dalhia Ingram gave the Huskers their
first win of the meet in the triple
Ingram, from Liberal, Kansas,
won the triple jump with a leap of 41

Noel, from Southwest Louisiana, by
more than 6 inches.
“My focus is first to get on the
board,” Ingram said. “When the jump
is over, I just hope it’s a good one. I
wanted to jump well here today.”
At last year’s Drake Relays,
sophomore Cleophus Boor finished
third in the 5,000-meter run. This
year, Boor came back to win the event
and claim his first Drake Relays title.
Senior Tressa Thompson swept
both the discus and the shot put at last
year’s relays. Thompson didn’t repeat
as a two-event champion, but she did
win the shot put for the second
Freshman Amy Wiseman was
edged out by 0.29 seconds in the
3,000-meter run. Magdalena Pastza
of Lewis College outlasted Wiseman
in the last 20 meters.
The women’s 4x100 meter shuttle
hurdle relay team also finished sec
ond, less than one second behind the
team from Iowa.
“We wanted to see what we could
do and still be competitive,” Dirksen
said. “This meet is usually the high
light of the season for us.”
