After a weekend of recharging for the final push, it’s back to the grind, Wildcat faithful. Three more games remain in the football season, and they may all be winnable, starting with a trip to Waco to face the suddenly quite-mortal Baylor Bears. Yesterday, it was announced that the game will be at 11am Saturday, airing on ESPN2.
The important thing, however, is that one of those three games isn’t really loseable, so a bowl trip is a near-certainty. Still, it would be nice if Bill Snyder could collect win number 200 this season without having to go to some exotic location in order to do so.
Speaking of round numbers, K-State’s women will attempt to win their 300th game at Bramlage Coliseum tonight as they take on the Tulsa Golden Hurricane at 8pm. It’s a homecoming for one party, as Tulsa is led by former Wildcat head coach Matilda Mossman. At the Capital-Journal, Riley Gates got some reactions from Peyton Williams following the win over Chicago State. Williams, of course, became the first Wildcat woman since Kendra Wecker to record a double-double in her K-State debut.
The fall season came to a close for K-State’s tennis team at the San Diego State Fall Classic, and Sunday was a good day as the Cats went 7-2 in their closing matches. Both of those losses were in the championship matches of their respective brackets — Ana Garcia Navas in the white bracket singles and the black bracket doubles team of Carolina Costamagna and Palma Juhasz. Every Wildcat competing in a consolation match walked away with the win, including Livia Cirnu, who took third place in the silver singles bracket.
Finally, Donald Emmons at the Toledo Blade profiles one of his city’s hometown heroes: Erik Kynard, K-State’s newest assistant track and field coach and Olympic silver medalist.
