It was track day here at Bring on the Cats, and our resident track expert, Wildcat00, has been hard at work previewing K-State’s track stars.
First up yesterday was, Nina Schutlz, K-State’s heptathlon expert.
Following Nina was Jess St. John, K-State’s best shot putter.
Finally, 00 finished off with Alyx Treausre, a former Kansas State high jumper looking to medal at the Commonwealth games.
Early morning news updates from the Gold Coast:
St. John has made the shot put final with a toss of 16.90m, a new personal best mark and a new national record for Antigua and Barbuda. She’ll be in action on Friday morning at 5:40 AM CDT in a pretty crowded finals field that includes the current record holder Dame Valerie Adams of New Zealand.
Meanwhile, after four events in the heptathlon (100H, high jump, shot put, and 200m), Schultz is in second place with 3639 points, just 126 points off first place, currently occupied by England’s Katarina Thompson-Johnson, 2017 world champion. Up next for Schultz is the long jump event at 7:30 PM tonight.
With two new coordinators on the side lines this season, Kansas State is certain to look a big different this year compared to years past. How different remains to be seen, but Offensive coordinator, Andre Coleman is quoted as saying the Wildcats want to “play fast” and have a “balanced offense”. (Kellis Robinett, Wichita Eagle)
