The Other Sports: This Week in K-State Athletics

Scott Sewell-USA TODAY Sports

Volleyball gets its first win, men's golf in contention in Ohio, women's golf struggles in Texas, Niedermayerova eliminated at All-American Championships, equestrian dominates Texas A&M, and rowing gets first action of the season.

K-State Volleyball

K-State looked for, and failed to find, its first Big 12 victory on Wednesday against KU. The athletic department's Web site calls it a "narrow" loss, but any sweep in volleyball is not a narrow loss. A KU team that's on a roll right now pretty much dominated K-State. That's three straight wins in the series for KU.

On Saturday, K-State got its first conference win. It took a come-from-behind rally after falling behind 2-1 after three sets, but the Wildcats got it done. The Horned Frogs previously knocked off the West Virginia team that K-State lost to last Friday, and had also been swept by Texas and KU.

K-State goes on the road this week, with two matches against teams who were previously ranked and are currently receiving votes in the AVCA poll. On Wednesday, it's off to Ames to take on Iowa State. Then on Saturday, it's south to Norman to meet Oklahoma.

K-State Men's Golf

After a rough start to the season, K-State is getting going. Last week, K-State finished second in its home invitational, the Jim Colbert Intercollegiate. The Wildcats finished only two shots behind Sam Houston State after firing a final-round 304. Four Wildcats -- Alex Carney (2nd, +3), Matt Green (4th, +5), Daniel Wood (5th, +9), and Kyle Weldon (8th, +13) -- cracked the individual top 10.

This week, K-State travels to Ohio to play at famed Firestone Golf Club. After the opening two rounds, K-State is second in a solid, 17-team field. The Wildcats fired a pair of 294s (+12), but are 20 shots behind Washington State. Green leads the Wildcats, and is tied for first after firing a four-under-par 140 through two rounds. The tournament concludes today, and you can follow the action at Golfstat. (Note: Golfstat shows that Washington State is only eight shots ahead of K-State).

K-State Women's Golf

The Challenge at Onion Creek proved more challenging than K-State's home invitational, as the Wildcats finished seventh in the 11-team field. K-State improved with a 298 in the final round, finishing at +64. Texas Tech took the team title at +28, with KU tied for third at +35.Carly Ragains tied for 15th at +12.

The Wildcats take this week off. Their next tournament will be the Diane Thomason Invitational in Iowa City, Iowa.

K-State Women's Tennis

K-State isn't known as a traditional women's tennis powerhouse, but Petra Niedermayerova has had quite a career in Manhattan. Last week, the played in the ITA/Women's All-American Championships for the third time. Unfortunately, she lost in straight sets to Duke's Beatrice Capra, 6-0, 6-1.

K-State returns to action in Norman, Okla., October 17-21 for the ITA Central Regional.

K-State Equestrian

As I've said before, I don't know much about equestrian. But I know enough to know that 17-2 is utter domination. That was the score by which K-State defeated the No. 6 Texas A&M Aggies on Saturday. Unfortunately, Johnny Manziel was not on hand to sign autographs for the crowd.

On October 18th, K-State travels to Waco, Texas, to take on the Baylor Bears.

K-State Cross Country

Both the men and the women finished third at the Rim Rock Invitational in Lawrence last Saturday. Michigan took home the women's title, with KU second. On the men's side, KU won, followed by the Rice Owls. Martina Tresch once against led K-State, completing the 6K course in 21:07. Ryan Hershner led K-State's men's team, covering the 10K course in 25:25.

Next action for the cross country team is October 19th, in Terre Haute, Ind., at the Pre-National Invitational.

K-State Rowing

K-State rowing's first action of the season was last weekend in Norman, Okla., at the Head of the Oklahoma. I may know less about rowing than I do about equestrian, so I'll just link to the results for you to peruse if you so desire. Any "analysis" on my part would only serve to embarrass me.
