Illinois track & field wraps up indoor regular season with Illini Classic in Champaign – The Daily Illini

“My goal is to finish in the six-foot club,” Humphrey said, as her personal record on the year came last weekend in the Indoor Music City Challenge at around 5.8 feet.

Another goal Humphrey has for her first indoor postseason is “to win Big Ten or to place top three as a freshman.”

A top-three finish for a freshman is high aspirations, but Humphrey is capable and has shown it throughout each meet this season as she constantly sets expectations for herself.

“I just want to make the next bar and jump even higher,” Humphrey said.

Another athlete looking to get a little bit better right before the postseason is junior Tyler Sudduth. Sudduth is coming off an excellent performance in Nashville, where he recorded the 11th longest weight throw in the country so far this season.

“It’s great to see all the hard work pay off, and I’m just going to keep working with Coach Turk,” Sudduth said. “He has been a very big help to me.”

His best throws have come at a good time right before the conference and national championships, and Sudduth is still eager to get better.

“I know we have a lot of really good throwers in the Big Ten this year,” Sudduth said. “I just want to perform to the best of my ability and hopefully solidify a spot in the top 16, so I can advance to nationals.”

The meet will be broadcasted by Fighting Illini Productions, and live results will be updated at shazamracing……..
