For the second time this season, the K-State track and field team traveled to Rock Chalk Park in Lawrence and put on a show for fans, earning eight first-place medals out of 19 overall top-three finishes.
On the women’s side, five first-place marks helped the team finish third in the one-day tournament. The Wildcats trailed in-state rivals Kansas and Wichita State; 20 points behind the Shockers for second, but 102 points behind the Jayhawks for first place.
The men’s team racked up 88.50 points for a fourth-place finish, 72.5 points behind the Shockers for first place.
In the field, junior thrower Dani Winters, who was an Indoor All-American in shot put, had a career day, throwing an outdoor personal best mark of 17.21 meters, which was good for second-best in school history.
Up next for the team is their final regular-season meet of the season, the Nebraska Invitational, on Saturday.
