The team of Anna Frazier, Kaylee Jones, Aspen Rolfes and Elizabeth Jones captured the Prairie Wolves' sixth straight national championship in the women's 4x400-meter relay at the NCAA Division III indoor track and field championships in Boston.

Nebraska Wesleyan's super four made it a super six on Saturday.

The team of Anna Frazier, Kaylee Jones, Aspen Rolfes and Elizabeth Jones captured the Prairie Wolves' sixth straight national championship in the women's 4x400-meter relay at the NCAA Division III indoor track and field championships in Boston.

This is the third straight title for the team with the Jones sisters, Rolfes and Frazier. They crossed the finish line in 3 minutes, 48.60 seconds, edging American Rivers Conference foe Loras (3:49.79). Kaylee and Elizabeth Jones, both Millard North graduates, have been a part of all six championship indoor and outdoor titles. Frazier also is a Millard North grad, and Rolfes is a Lincoln Pius X grad.

The championship relay team sparked the Prairie Wolves to a fifth-place showing in the team standings.

Dayton Dolincheck threw her way to a runner-up finish in the women's shot put. Her best throw was 48 feet, 4½ inches.

Elizabeth Jones added an All-American finish in the 400-meter run, taking third in a time of :55.83.

Huskers have three All-Americans: Nebraska's Jared Seay placed fourth in the men's heptathlon and freshman Mayson Conner was seventh in the high jump at the NCAA Division I championships in Birmingham, Alabama.

Conner, a York graduate, capped an impressive first indoor season, matching a personal-best jump of 7-3¾. He was the top freshman finisher in the event.

Seay scored 5,847 points, the second-best score in school history. His meet run included a personal-best leap of 15-11¼ in the pole vault. Seay posted the best NCAA finish by a Husker heptathlete since Bjorn Barrefors took fourth in 2012.

NU's Angela Mercurio earned second-team All-America honors with a ninth-place finish in the triple jump. The senior finished her track career with a jump of 42-8¾ on her final attempt.
