K-State’s Savatovic, Twiss among strong weekend performances


The K-State Wildcats track and field team tallied multiple impressive marks over the weekend at both the Texas Relays and ESU Spring Open.

Senior Erica Twiss was one of those Wildcats who highlighted the weekend as she started her outdoor season with a bang. Twiss’s 13.74 time in her 100 meter hurdles qualifying round heat set a meet record. Twiss was the only runner to run a sub-14 second time.

Sophomore thrower Sara Savatovic showed why she is not just one of the best throwers in the Big 12, but also in the world. Savatovic won the hammer throw with a toss of 65.19 meters. Her throw is not the top mark set by anyone in Division 1 track and field so far this season.
