Erik Kynard won the silver medal in the men's high jump, clearing 2.33 meters (7'7 3/4") and finishing second to Russia's Ivan Ukhov, who cleared 2.38 meters (7'9 3/4"). At just 21 years old, Kynard now has two NCAA national titles and an Olympic silver medal. Even better, he still has a year of eligibility left at K-State.
Kynard took in the Olympic stage, including 80,000 fans in the stadium, and treated it like it was just another Tuesday.
Vegas has set the over/under for K-State wins this year at 7.5. I think I know which side most of you are betting.
Three K-State volleyball players have been named to the preseason all-conference team. Kaitlynn Pelger was chosen unanimously, and was joined by Caitlyn Donahue and Lilla Porubek.
