NCAA hurdles don't faze UNO's Spenner
Sami Spenner won three events at the Summit League championships. She would rank sixth in Division I in the pentathlon, tied for 11th in the triple jump and tied for 17th in the long jump if her efforts could be included on the national charts. UNO's attempt to get her a waiver to compete as a one-person team at the national championships was also denied.

Sami Spenner's legs were a little shaky after winning the pentathlon at the Summit League championships.
But just like she did after hearing she wouldn't get a waiver from the NCAA to compete at the Division I championships, the University of Nebraska at Omaha junior told herself she had to stay strong and keep working.
