NCAA championships underway


Redshirt freshman Dorcas Akinniyi is off to a fast start at the the 2010 NCAA Outdoor Championships, as she opened the first day of the heptathlon with a personal-best run of 13.95 in the 100-meter hurdles.

The heptathlon high jump is up next for Akinniyi, who is one of three Badgers competing today in Eugene. Senior Megan Seidl competes in the women's high jump at 6:45 p.m. (CT), right after junior Luke Rucks runs in the semifinals of the men's 800 meters at 6:30 p.m.
