Larkin advances in 110 hurdles


Senior Nate Larkin advanced out of the prelims of the men's 110-meter hurdles at the Drake Relays on Friday morning, running a time of 14.54 seconds.

Larkin, who was third in the event at last year's Drake Relays, won his preliminary heat going away and ended up fourth-fastest overall. He will race in the final at 3:13 p.m. Saturday.

Larkin also led off the Badgers' 4x100-meter relay entry Friday morning and will run the 4x110-meter shuttle hurdle relay on Saturday as the Badgers look to defend their title in that event.

Next up on the track for Wisconsin is the men's 4x1600-meter relay, with Craig Miller, Ryan Gasper, Drew Shields and Rob Finnerty running.

The duo of Monika Jakutyte and Kate Flood will compete in the women's high jump at 1 p.m. Teammate Megan Seidl, who is nursing some leg soreness, was a late scratch from that event and did not make the trip from Madison.
