Sunday has arrived at the 2010 Big Ten Outdoor Championships, and the Badgers have used the first two days of competition to put themselves in the hunt for the team championship on the men's and women's sides.

The day gets going with Chavon Robinson going for the season sweep of the league's women's triple jump titles at 10 a.m. Other early events include the women's discus (10 a.m.), with freshmen Taylor Smith and Jasmine Boyer looking to score in a second event after finishing fifth and sixth yesterday in the shot put.

Senior Jenny Soceka comes into the meet with the Big Ten's top mark in the women's pole vault and will go for her first conference title at 11 a.m. Fellow senior Megan Seidl will go for her second crown -- she won in 2008 -- in the high jump at 11:30 a.m.

On the men's side, things really get going with the 4x100-meter relay at 11:55 a.m. From there, it gets fast and furious on the track as more than a dozen events will be decided over the following three hours.

The Badger men also have title contenders in the javelin (Robert Dehn, 12:30 p.m.) and 110-meter hurdles (Nate Larkin, 12:35 p.m.), both of whom were All-Big Ten with runner-up finishes in their events last year.

Kyle Jefferson and James Groce are contenders in the 400 meters (12:45 p.m.), as is Zach Beth in the 800 meters (1:08 p.m.). Gavin Robertson runs the 200 meters at 1:42 p.m., with a host of Badgers looking to continue UW's distance tradition in the 5,000 meters at 2:11 p.m.

That includes Landon Peacock, who seeks a season sweep of the Big Ten's 5,000 meters titles after winning the crown indoor.

The 4x400-meter relay wraps things up at 2:45 p.m.
