Two Huskers took home the gold on the final day of the Big Ten Outdoor Championships on Sunday in Iowa City, Iowa.

Jasmine Barge finished in first in the 100-meter hurdles with a time of 13.25 seconds, and Candice Dominguez came out on top in the high jump with a clearance of 5 feet, 9 1/4 inches. Barge's time puts her at No. 3 in NU's record books.

"It feels good, I waited four years for this," said Barge, who also took third in the 400 hurdle finals. "I really didn't have a game plan. I just wanted to stick to what I usually do at practice, I didn't want to change anything up. I ran a good time with this weather and I have a new wind-legal PR."

Dominguez, who finished eighth at the Big Ten indoor championships, was a previous high jump champion in the Big Sky Conference while competing at Sacramento State.

"It feels awesome," Dominguez said. "The last time I competed at an outdoor conference meet I won (at Big Sky), so it is nice after redshirting last year. The next meet will be in Sacramento, so I am excited to return to California and compete."

Barge also finished third in the 400 hurdles with a season-best time of :57.80, while NU defensive lineman Carlos Davis was third in the discus with a toss of 183-3.

Crete graduate Luke Siedhoff finished fourth in the men's 110 hurdles, and Chanel Freeman was fourth in the women's 100 hurdles. George Kusche placed fourth in both the 1,500 and 5,000 runs, and Jonathan Miller took fourth in the men's triple jump.

Superior graduate Alex placed fourth in the women's discus.

As a team, the Husker men finished in fourth with 76 1/2 points, while the women also placed fourth with 92 1/2 points. Iowa took the men's title with a team score of 116, while Ohio State claimed the women's crown with 126 points.
