Non-revenue action to take you into the weekend...

The BatCats wrap up their season against No. 19 Texas this weekend.

Some closing notes:

This is the last time Blair DeBord, Ross Kivett, Jared Moore and RJ Santigate will suit up for K-State. All four were also named to the All-Big 12 Academic Team for the season.

With one more stolen base, Kivett will set a school record. K-State leads the conference in stolen bases.

Tointon Family Stadium drew 61,516 fans this season. That's a school attendance record.

Apparently, you can go home again. Daniel Sams talks about his possible return home, and how difficult it's been to say goodbye to K-State.

Jake Trotter breaks down the strongest and weakest unit for K-State this season.

This article takes a look at Craig Bohl at his new position in Wyoming. There are tough times ahead for the coach, because Wyoming is, without a doubt, terrible. Apparently, it was the win over K-State that convinced Bohl his methods would work at the FBS level.  At least that loss was good for something?

K-State will play Texas A&M at the Sprint Center in Kansas City on December 2, with a return visit to College Station in 2015. This is one of four games against the SEC for the team next season.

Jeff Mittie has signed Deborah Meeks for the 2014-15 season. She was a key player at NJCAA National Champion Trinity Valley CC (Texas), and averaged 9.5 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.0 steals on her way to being named to the All-Tournament team.

K-State senior Daniel Wood is tied for 52nd place at the NCAA Columbia regional.

K-State will finish out the season at the Conference USA championships this weekend in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. Six boats are competing, in a field that is considered stronger than the Big 12 championships, where K-State finished second.

Petra Niedermayerova's trophy shelf must be pretty full now. In addition to the accolades she's already received this season, she has been named to the Capital One Academic All District VII at-large team. This is the third time she's been recognized with this honor.

She graduates from K-State this weekend with a degree in economics, and will be a Ph.D. student at Boston University in the fall.

K-State heads to Lubbock this weekend for the Big 12 Championships. Sprinter Carlos Rodriguez and longjumper Erica Twiss are expected to lead the field for the Wildcats. But Coach Rovelto warns that competition will be tight and the Cats are suffering from the injury bug.

Meanwhile, the K-State women have quietly cracked the national Top 25, showing up at No. 21. This is the first national ranking for the K-State women in outdoor track. The men are No. 7 in the Midwest region, but dropped to 117 in the national rankings.

In news more inevitable than 35F weather in May, tuition is going up at K-State and other Regents schools.
