Six Bulldogs compete on day one of the Husker Invite

LINCOLN, Neb. – Head coach Kregg Einspahr took six select Bulldogs from his sixth-ranked track and field squads to the Devaney Sports Center to compete against top-notch competition as part of the Frank Sevigne Husker Invite on Friday. The meet continues on Saturday.

Take a look below for a summary of Friday’s performances from Bulldogs. John Cartier came through with an impressive time of 49.28 in the 400 meter dash. Based on the NAIA leaderboard entering the weekend, Cartier’s time ranks seventh best in the nation. In addition, freshman CJ Muller hit the ‘B’ standard mark with a time of 49.74 in the same event.

Both Cody Boellstorff and Jamie Crouse again hit marks that surpassed the automatic qualifying measurement in the weight throw. However, both fell short of their respective personal bests set this season.
