LINCOLN, Neb. – Mathis Bresko led three Husky men’s pole vaulters over the 17-foot mark, coming away with a season’s-best clearance of 17-11 on day one of the Frank Sevigne Husker Invitational, hosted by Nebraska at the Bob Devaney Sports Center. Bresko, a transfer from Cal Poly, moves into the NCAA top-10 and into the Husky all-time top-10 with the mark.
It was a busy day for the Dawgs in Nebraska, with the jumpers, throwers, sprinters, and multis all getting a taste for competition outside the Dempsey.
The one win on the day for the Dawgs was senior Beatrice Asomaning in the weight throw. After setting the School Record last week, Asomaning did not quite top that effort, but she still won her fourth meet of the season with a best throw of 68-10 ¾.
Bresko wound up fourth in a strong field with his 17-11 make, which ties him for ninth nationally based on marks entering this weekend. It also puts him up to No. 8 in school history. Max Manson, who last week went to No. 3 in school history, today made 17-1, as did Simon Park.
In the women’s vault, several Huskies will compete in Saturday’s invite section, but Sarah Ferguson and Avril Wilson got their work in today, with Ferguson making 13-4 ¼ and Wilson clearing 12-4 ½.
Bruno Comin Pescador and Jami Schlueter got rolling in their first heptathlon competitions of the season, with the first four events. Comin Pescador sits second after day one with 3,274 points, and Schlueter is fourth with 2,936.
Comin Pescador’s day was highlighted by a career-best shot put mark of 48-3 ¼. He then also won the high jump, getting his best-ever indoor clearance at 6-8 ¼. Schlueter scored well in the long jump, taking second at 23-0, and he was third in the shot put at 45-10 ¾.
