Badgers' multi-event entries multiply
It's a busy day for Wisconsin's multi-event groups as the 2012 NCAA Outdoor Championships continue Thursday at Drake Stadium in Des Moines, Iowa.

Senior David Grzeisak and sophomore Japheth Cato look to carry some momentum over from a strong first day of competition in the decathlon when the final five events begin at 11:30 a.m. (CT) with the 110 hurdles.

Cato enters the day 10th in the standings at 3,920 points, while Grzesiak is 11th at 3,914.

On the women's side, UW's trio of senior Jessica Flax, junior Dorcas Akinniyi and sophomore Deanna Latham open the heptathlon with the 100 hurdles at 1 p.m. They make Wisconsin the first program to advance three athletes to the NCAA championships in the heptathlon since 2001.

Also Thursday, junior Rob Finnerty runs as the top seed in the semifinals of the men's 1500 meters at 6:15 p.m., while junior Caitlin Comfort also makes her NCAA championships debut in the women's 10,000 meters at 8:45 p.m.
