Slate: Is the bye week over yet?

Rowing earns medals, soccer falls again, and a story about Michael Bishop for your Monday morning.

Michael Bishop #7

Thank goodness there is a football game this weekend.


The Wildcats rowing team competed in their first regatta of the fall over the weekend, and took three medals at the Jayhawk Jamboree in Lawrence on Sunday. The Varsity 4+ boats finished 4th, 9th, and 10th; the Novice 8+ boat finished second; and the Varisty 8+ boats finished 3rd, 7th, and 9th which qualified all three boats for the 300m sprints. The ‘A’ and ‘B’ boats made the semifinals (where they had to race each other), and in the finals the Cats ‘B’ boat finished 2nd, 0.8s behind the champion Jayhawks.

This was the final race scheduled for the fall, so the Cats will take a winter break before resuming competition on March 2nd, 2019 at the Oklahoma Scrimmage in Oklahoma City.


The SoccerCats are running out of opportunities to pick up a Big 12 win. The Cats traveled to Austin, TX for their penultimate game of the season, and just could not keep up with the hometown Longhorns, falling 4-0. The Wildcats (4-11-2, 0-8-0) final game of the 2018 season is in Ames, as they take on the Cyclones who just picked up their first win in Big 12 play on Sunday against Oklahoma State.


Mark McClure at the Manhattan Mercury took a long-form look at Michael Bishop and his “magical K-State career”, including quotes from a recent phone interview with Bishop.

Today’s Sports Extra features K-State assistant coach, and former lineman, Zach Hanson and his journey to Manhattan, his playing time, and his coaching career since playing for the Cats.
