Jacks at USD and Nebraska.

The Jackrabbit Track and Field teams have a big weekend.  They competed at the USD Bill Hillenbrand Invitational on Thursday and will compete at the Frank Sevigne Husker Invitational on Friday and Saturday.

At USD the women were led by an impressive double by Laura Lawton in the Mile and 800m runs with 5:14 and 2:26. Leah Bolon also ran well in her first shot at the 3k distance with a time of 10:48.  Brooke garner topped the field as usual by over a meter with a throw of 17.28m in the weight throw.

The Men were led by Calvin Cammack's 2nd place finish in the Pole Vault.  He only lost to Derek Miles, USD's Nike sponsored coach.  Ryan Ackman repeated Brooke's achievement by winning the Men's weight throw.  Brandon Priebe has been consistent in the 60m hurdles all year and that continued at USD, winning by three tenths of a second.  Mike Bredeson set a personal-best in the event by .01s.
