Mayson Conner and Elijah Lucy won Big Ten indoor track titles in February in high jump and long jump, respectively.

The two Huskers made it an indoor-outdoor sweep.

Conner won gold in the men's high jump and Lucy won gold in the men's long jump to highlight Nebraska's second day at the Big Ten Outdoor Championships in Iowa City, Iowa.

Conner, who a year ago was winning a state title for York, cleared 7 feet, 3¾ inches in the high jump, which was moved indoors because of rain. Conner's mark matched his season-best jump, which ranks ninth in school history.

Lucy popped a 24-10½ on his second attempt in the long jump, and it held up the rest of the way.

The Huskers' Burger Lambrecht took fourth in the men's shot put with a toss of 62-5¾. Teammate Grady Leonard was eighth.

Nebraska's Chanel Freeman moved up to fifth on the school's all-time charts in the 100-meter hurdles with a time of 13.20 seconds, which has the senior seeded first for Sunday's final. Teammate Jasmine Barge had the second-fastest time (:13.36).

Junior Luke Siedhoff, a Crete graduate, reeled off a :13.97 in the men's 110 hurdles to grab the top seed for Sunday's final. Michigan State's Will Agodu was second at :13.98.

NU's Ty Moss had the second-fastest time (1:49.55) in the men's 800 qualifying round.

Andy Jacobs scored points for the Husker women with a third-place finish in the pole vault. She cleared 13-6¼. NU's Zach Podraza and Jared Seay finished sixth and seventh, respectively, in the men's decathlon.

The Husker men are sixth and the women are fourth in the team standings heading into Sunday's finals.
