LINCOLN — Some hurdlers are great because of speed while some make their mark with smooth, technical skill. The great ones excel at both, but Ellie Grooters has no problem admitting which side of the line she falls on.
“I’m not very technical, so I’m trained to be strong and run strong,” the Nebraska hurdler said. “Then I get the hurdling together as best as I can.”
