Nebraska’s Brent Wetovick, a graduate of Fullerton High, was named the Big Ten Men’s Indoor Freshman of the Year on Tuesday.
The Huskers’ middle distance runner earned the honor in a vote by the conference’s head coaches.
Wetovick won the Big Ten indoor title in the 600 meters with a personal-best time of 1-minute-16.81 seconds. It was the fourth-best time in school history in the event.
Wetovick ran in nine races as a freshman, winning eight of them.
