D.J. Reed did a lot of D.J. Reed things. Matthew McCrane topped Martin Gramatica’s record for field goals.

That’s pretty much all I have to say about that.

Cross Country

At the NCAA Midwest Regionals, the Kansas State men’s cross country team placed 10th overall, their best finish since a 10th place spot in 2004. The team narrowly edged Iowa into 10th place, and outpaced their #12 ranking.

All seven Wildcat runners, including top Kansas State finishes Jeff Bachmann and Colton Donahue, set new personal best marks in the 10K events. All runners finished under 31 minutes and placed in the top 100 of runners at the event.

Iowa State won the men’s and women’s events.


Kansas State, struggling through a tough season, dropped a home match against TCU for the first time ever. The VolleyCats lost to the Horned Frogs 3-2 (25-22, 14-25, 20-25, 25-17, 14-16) in a tightly contested match. This is the first time TCU has swept Kansas State.

At one point in the fifth set, after a furious rally to erase a three-point deficit, Kansas State actually had match point. But three straight kills from TCU took care of that and dealt the VolleyCats yet another loss.

Playing without senior Bryna Vogel, the team fought hard, stayed loose, did their best to create some momentum. Kylee Zumach had 18 kills to lead the team, while Alyssa Schultejans had 11. Reilly Killeen led the team with 18 digs, while Devan Fairfield had 12.
