Yesterday started with the news that Kansas State had picked up another QB/ATH commit in Brock Monty of Wichita, KS.

Five Wildcats made the All-Big 12 Volleyball team, led by Junior Setter Katie Brand. Brand was joined by second team players Brooke Sassin and Katie Reininger. Macy Flowers and Alyssa Schultejans also made the all-freshman team. Maybe the best news regarding teh All-Big 12 placements is that none of the players are seniors, meaning the team has a very solid returning core for next season as well. (ksn.com)
