Track team to host event at Ahearn Fieldhouse


The K-State track and field team will host the KSU Invitational Saturday as they begin the bulk of the indoor portion of the season.

Coach Cliff Rovelto has the men’s team ranked No. 22 in the preseason coaches poll, which includes eight Big 12 teams. The team returns two All-Americans and adds depth to a team that fared well last year in the rugged Big 12.

The women’s team is not ranked in the poll, but features several key returners and new additions to build on previous success. Many of the key contributors are underclassmen for this year’s team. Leading the way will be senior distance runner Beverly Ramos.

Saturday’s field events will begin at 11 a.m. and running events at 3:30 p.m.
