There’s really nothing to tell you about the past, so we’ll just get down to business and talk about the future. That is, the weekend.
Kansas State is playing Texas twice tomorrow: once in Austin at noon, and once in Manhattan at 1:00pm. That’s the women and the men, respectively, of course. Tomorrow’s men’s game will feature the lavenders, so that’s something.
For the third year in a row, Peyton Williams has been named CoSIDA Academic All-District. She’s joined on the District VII first team by Baylor’s Lauren Cox, Oklahoma State’s Vivian Gray, Erica Ogwumike of Rice, and Brittany Brewer from Texas Tech. The four Big 12 players are the only Big 12 first-teamers, as Iowa State (in District VI) and West Virginia (District II) had no honorees.
The one piece of “news” is that last night’s game against Texas A&M-Corpus Christi was cancelled due to weather. The two teams will still play on Saturday as scheduled, and today’s game against Missouri is still planned for 2:00pm.
Track and Field
The indoor regular season ends tomorrow as K-State hosts the Steve Miller Open at Ahearn. The competition won’t be daunting; the guests are Emporia State, Haskell, Langston, Oklahoma City, and Washburn. But it’s the key final tune-up before the Big 12 indoor championships next weekend in Ames.
Despite having left K-State two weeks ago, Corbin McGuire is somehow still cranking out content. In today’s Sports Extra, he tells us about senior heptathlete/decathlete Kyle Parr, a lifelong EMAW from Rossville.
Two road matches are in store for the Wildcats (5-3) this weekend, both in Iowa City. They’ll take on DePaul (4-4) tomorrow before facing off against the hosts from Iowa (2-5) on Sunday. Once they come home, they’ll be here for a whopping 35 days in a row as a six-match homestand will ensue.
