Benevolent despot still cranky. Life hard. Deal with.


At the Wake Forest Invite, Maria Linares and Ines Mesquita took home first place bracket finishes in singles play, but ironically suffered the only Wildcat loss in doubles as K-State pairs wrecked shop, going 8-1 on the weekend. In singles play, K-State was 13-6 overall, but went 6-0 on Sunday.

In other words, a pretty good showing against a field including Wake Forest, Louisville, Virginia, Appalachian State, East Carolina, James Madison, and others.


Saturday in Oklahoma City at the Head of the Oklahoma, K-State took first place in the Novice 4s and Novice 8s. Those wins overshadowed the three Wildcat Varsity 8 crews, which took 6th, 8th, and 10th overall in the collegiate V8 event, and the V4s which finished 9th, 11th, and 13th.

Becky Tanner of the Wichita Eagle reports on Tom Bookwalter, the guy who created the Powercat logo. There’s video included.

And in disgusting and contemptible news, a sukkah — a hut used during the Jewish festival of Sukkot, or Feast of the Tabernacles -- was stolen and destroyed by vandals on campus Friday night. This is, likely, the second anti-Semitic incident on campus in the last six months. We at Bring on the Cats strongly condemn this sort of nonsense.
