SOUTH BEND, Ind., and LINCOLN, Neb. – The Kentucky track and field teams completed the first traveling weekend of the new year on Saturday as multiple Wildcats produced personal bests at two separate meets.

A group composed predominantly of sprinters, hurdlers, middle distance runners and field athletes competed in Lincoln, Neb., at the Husker Invitational. A squad of men's distance athletes raced at the Notre Dame Meyo Invitational in South Bend, Ind.

In Nebraska Morganne Phillips excelled in her first collegiate 400 meters race as she took second in a time of 54.75.

Keith Hayes took third in the men's 60-meter hurdles finals with 2013-best time of 7.89. Darryl Bradshaw finished fifth with a personal record 7.94.
