DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Lolo Jones will continue her quick transition from bobsled to track this weekend with a hometown advantage.

Jones will compete Friday at the Drake Relays in her native Des Moines, just two months removed from an 11th-place finish as a brakeman for a U.S. sled at the Sochi Olympics.

But rather than go for the meet title in her specialty, the 100-meter hurdles, Jones will team with world champion Bri Rollins and others for the shuttle hurdle relay.

The meet kicked off Thursday night with a light schedule. Katie Flood, also from Des Moines, led Washington to the 6,400 relay title as the Huskies swept the event.
