We’re a little light on content today, because it’s Wednesday and the spring sports seasons are winding to a close.
After Monday’s announcement of signing a WBCA National Player of the Year, Jeff Mittie turned around on Tuesday and announced the signing of Malene Lind Pederson, a native of Aabyhoj, Denmark. The first ever Dane to play for the K-State women’s basketball program, Pederson comes with solid credentials of her own, as the 5-11 guard was a two-time Danish Women’s League All-Star team selection in 2019 and 2021. In 13 games last year, Pederson led her team with 19.3 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 2.6 steals, while also dishing 3.1 assists. She had seven games of 20 or more points, and also racked up four double-doubles. Pederson is now the fifth player in K-State’s 2021 class, joining Brylee and Jaelyn Glenn (yes, they are sisters) from Raymore, MO, Serena Sundell from Maryville, MO, and Rebekah Dallinger.
K-State Athletics announced yesterday the the Ward Haylett Invitational has been moved back a day, and will now run from Thursday, May 6th to Saturday, May 8th. The release says the move gives them more time to spread out events, however it was also noted that BYU has been added as a participant, so that probably had something to do with the move as well.
K-State crops judging is again at the top, taking the top spot at the recent national invitational crops contest after also sweeping the top two individual places. The Wildcat team edged out Iowa State and Nebraska in the process, once again marking K-State as the best Ag school.
