K-State Volleyball

It was another winless week for K-State volleyball. The week began with a trip to Ames on Wednesday, which resulted in a sweep for the homestanding Cyclones. Things didn't improve much on Saturday, as K-State lost in four sets on the road against the Oklahoma Sooners.

The Wildcats need to regroup quickly, as they're almost a quarter of the way through the season and are 1-4 in conference play. This week, K-State gets Wednesday off before Texas Tech visits Manhattan on Saturday. The Red Raiders are also 1-4 in Big 12 play. Only Texas (3) and KU (23) are ranked in this week's AVCA poll, with Oklahoma and Iowa State receiving votes.

K-State Men's Golf

Tim Norris' squad had a better time in Ohio than they did California. The Wildcats finished fourth at the Firestone Invitational, shooting 877 (+13) for three rounds. Even a final-day 289, a five-shot improvement over their score the first two rounds, wasn't enough to keep them from dropping to fourth place, as USC-Aiken shot 282 to finish at 871 (+7) and Eastern Michigan shot 286 to finish at 875 (+11).

Alex Carney and Matt Green led K-State, both finishing tied for third at two-under-par 214. The Wildcats' final fall action will be October 31 - November 2 at the Pacific Invitational in Stockton, Calif.

K-State Women's Golf

K-State's women's team traveled to Iowa City, Iowa, last weekend for the 12-team Diane Thomason Invitational, at Finkbine Golf Course. The Wildcats finished ninth, with a 938 (+74) for three rounds. Gianna Misenhelter paced K-State, starting strong with a 73, before finishing 77-81 to tie for 21st (+15). The women's final action of the fall season is October 27-29 at the Las Vegas Showdown.
