Yes, we know that's a football picture. - Scott Sewell-USA TODAY Sports

It was a good day for the K-State track team at their first indoor meet of 2014.

Sara Savatovic (weight throw) and Erica Twiss (60m hurdles) both set personal bests to lead the list of 11 Wildcat entries to grab first-place honors at the Bill Easton Classic, hosted yesterday by the University of Kansas at the Anschutz Pavilion in Lawrence. There was no team scoring competition, but the Wildcats competed against individual athletes representing Kansas, Oral Roberts, UMKC, Fort Hays State, Kansas Wesleyan, Tabor, Benedictine, and Highland, Neosho County, and Pratt CCs.

Dani Winters won the women's shot put, while the men's crown was claimed by Ryan Hershberger. Ifeanyichukwu Otuonye captured first place in the long jump.

The Cats swept the mile and 1000m events. Martina Tresch and Morgan Wedekind went 1-2 in the women's mile, while the men went 1-2-3 behind Kain Ellis, Colton Donahue, and Blake Goodin. Logan Smith and Marie Taylor also went 1-2 in the 1000m.

K-State also swept the distance medley relays, with Tresch, Mary Frances Donnelly, Angela Hart, and Marija Stambolic teaming for the women and Adam Deterding, Donahue, Ellis, and Goodin winning the men's event. Sonia Gaskin, Twiss, Tia Gamble, and Sarah Kolmer also teamed up to capture the women's 4x400.

All in all, a fantastic day for K-State track, winning 11 of 34 events. Next up for the indoor track squads: the Wildcat Invitational next Saturday, Jan. 18, at Ahearn. Admission is free, and events are scheduled to begin at noon.
