  • SPRINTS/HURDLES HEADLINES • The group is a veteran one as three of the four who specialize in the middle distance events are seniors. • Brendan Soucie returns for his senior season after a noteworthy junior campaign in which he set personal bests in the 800 meters and 1,000 meters and finished third in the 800 meters at the Outdoor Big 12 Championships. • Soucie also sees extensive time on the Jayhawks’ distance medley relay team and helped the group to a fourth-place finish at the indoor league championships last season. • Senior Dalen Fink will look to end his Kansas career strong in 2014 after three solid seasons in which he has become well versed in the 800 meters, 1000 meters and the DMR. • Senior Dominique Manley is known for his sprinter-like speed and has even seen some time of the 4x400-meter relays. This makes him a versatile runner for the DMR and gives him the chance to contribute points in a handful of events at the conference meets. • Senior Nick Seckfort is arguably the most consistant runner for the Jayhawks. He could also see time on the 800-meter leg of the DMR. • Kellum Schneider rounds out the group and is primed to post times that could see him move up the Jayhawks’ 800-meter depth chart. HEADLINES • Michael Stigler is back after two outstanding seasons in which he claimed back-to-back 400-meter hurdle conference titles and was named a first team All-American. Last year, he was the NCAA runner-up in the event. • The sprints group losses six-time All-American and the reigning Big 12 outdoor 400-meter champion Kyle Clemons. Clemons was also a key member of the men’s 4x400-meter relay team which won the outdoor conference championship in 2013. • Shawn Smith and DeMario Johnson are the Jayhawks’ strongest short sprinters. Johnson was an all-Big 12 performer last year in both the 100 meters and the 200 meters outdoors. • Three of the four members of KU’s Big 12 champion 4x400-meter relay team return in Stigler, Johnson and Kenneth McCuin. • Drew Matthews and Michael Hester will also contend for scoring finishes in the 400 meters at the postseason meets, both will also likely see time as legs of the 4x400-meter relay. • Nebraska transfer Matt Berkshire joins the Jayhawks after redshirting as a freshman in Lincoln. • Sophomore Nick Ucherek is coming off a solid freshman season that saw him post an eighth-place finish at the Big 12 meet. He and Stigler could make up one of the top hurdle duos in the conference this season. MIDDLE DISTANCE DISTANCE HEADLINES • Watch for the distance squad to become a key aspect of the Jayhawks’ success this season with a veteran and tested set of athletes making up the majority of the group. • Senior Josh Munsch has been on the cusp of greatness in each of the last two seasons, just missing out on conference titles in the mile and 1,500 meters last season, taking third in both and posting times a Jayhawk hasn’t attained in some time. This season he could become the first Jayhawk to run a sub-4:00 minute mile indoors since Olympian Charlie Gruber in 2001. • Reid Buchanan is coming off an outstanding cross country campaign which saw him advance to the NCAA Championships. He’s a versatile runner, able to run distances from 1,000 to 10,000 meters. Expect big things from the junior in 2014. • Evan Landes has established himself as KU’s top long distance runner, recording the best 10,000-meter time by a Jayhawk in nearly 15 years last season at the Big 12 Championships (29:31.13). He will be a strong contender for qualifying spots at the NCAA Championship meets. • Junior James Wilson spends the majority of his time in the 5,000-meter and 10,000-meter events and could vie for scoring spots at the postseason meets in 2014. • Several newcomers join the group this year that are capable of making an immediate impact including Tyler Yunk, Alexandre Lavigne and James Hampton.

  • THROWS VERTICAL JUMPS HEADLINES • The vertical jumps group is expected to be the most prosperous faction of the men’s team in 2014 as the group returns every athlete that helped contribute over a quarter of the teams Big 12 Championship points in 2013. • Senior Alex Bishop is back after claiming the indoor pole vault title a season ago. He is also coming off an outdoor campaign that saw him finish the year as a second team All-American in the event. • Casey Bowen also returns after a spectacular year in the pole vault pits last season. He and Bishop are primed to break the 18-foot barrier in 2014. • The deep pole vault squad also includes juniors Greg Lupton and Regan Gilbert and sophomore Nick Maestretti, each of whom posted top-eight finishes at one or both of the Big 12 Championship meets last year. • Freshman Nick Meyer enters his first year in Lawrence after a state championship career out of Bishop Carroll HS in Wichita, Kan. • In the high jump, veterans Nick Giancana and Jonathan Fuller have their eyes set on Big 12 titles. Each turned in clearances over seven feet last year. • Junior Austin Hoag has two seasons of marked improvement under his belt in the high jump and his ready to contribute to the team’s success, just missing out on an all-conference distinction last year after finishing ninth at the outdoor league championships. HORIZONTAL JUMPS HEADLINES • The horizontal jumps may be a young group but is more than capable of contributing to the overall team’s success this season. • Long jump specialist Brian Katzfey saw a career performance at last year’s Big 12 indoor championships with a PR mark and an eighth-place finish. His continued improvement during the outdoor season means he’s ready for more as a junior. • Richard Smith turned some heads with scoring performances in the triple jump at both the indoor and outdoor conference championships in 2013. With his freshman days behind him and valuable experience under his belt, watch for him the move up the league and national rankings as a sophomore. • Coach Wayne Pate brought in a pair of highly touted recruits to his group in Caleb Cowling and Ryan Fontenette- Mitchell. Cowling has already proven his medal on the national level, taking a runner-up finish at last summer’s USA Junior Championships in Des Moines. Fontennette-Mitchell is also a proven talent seeing a PR triple jump mark of over 45 feet as a junior. HEADLINES • Kansas will again feature a talented collection of throwers as the group sees a mix of a pair of experienced veterans and same talented youth. • Junior javelin thrower Johann Swanepoel returns after a one-year hiatus due to injury. He is a conference title contender when healthy and has shown he can throw with the best in the nation, taking fifth at the NCAA Championships as a freshman. • Discus specialist Jonathan Miller comes into his junior year with some momentum after ending his 2013 campaign strong, posting a scoring performance at the outdoor league championships and advancing all the way to the NCAA Championships. • Mitchell Cooper is a highly touted recruit out of Australia who saw unprecedented success as a junior on the international stage. He was the Australian U20 discus champion in 2012 and had a mark that ranked No. 4 in the world that same year. • Miami (OH) transfer Paul Golen joins the Jayhawks after all-conference performances in the discus and shot put as a freshman. ALEX BISHOP RICHARD SMITH JONATHAN MILLER 11INTRODUCTION
  • SPRINTS/HURDLES HEADLINES • The middle distance crew should be interesting to watch this season, with several who are capable of earning top spots at the conference meets. • Rhavean King had a strong freshman season in which she gained some valuable experience competing in large meets. Now that she has the first-year jitters out of the way, expect to see her post some of the fastest 800 meter times the Kansas women have seen in some time. King also spent some time on the 4x400-meter relays last season, which will likely be the case again in 2014. • Senior Maddy Rich is the veteran of the group and could very well see herself post the fastest 800-meter times of her career. Rich is the most experienced middle distance runner who has competed on dozens of distance medley relays. • The middle distance group adds a state champion in freshman Lydia Saggau. The Des Moines, Iowa native claimed the 2013 Iowa state title in the 800 meters and her personal best of 2:11.20 was the third-fastest in the state a year ago. • Freshman KayLee Farmer joins the group after ending her high school career strong as an all-state selection in the 800 meters. Farmer could arguably be considered one of the best all-around athletes on the team as she was also an all-state performer for the Paola High School swim and basketball teams. HEADLINES • The sprints is again expected to be one of the Kansas women’s strongest areas with the return of a pair of All-Americans and the addition of several highly touted recruits. • Diamond Dixon is back for her senior season after three seasons of unmatched success in Lawrence. The now 12-time first team All-American can run with nation’s best in the 100 meters, 200 meters and 400 meters and has been a key leg of the Jayhawks’ relays. The 2012 indoor 400-meter national champion, Dixon is set to end her Jayhawk career by adding a few more national titles to her trophy case. • Kansas will miss Paris Daniels who exhausted her eligibility last spring. The Big 12’s performer of the year was a first team All-American in three events outdoors and was responsible for 23 points at the league championships in May. • Tianna Valentine, another one of the members of the Jayhawks’ national championship team, returns for her sophomore season. She brings experience at the postseason meets as she was a member of the All-American 4x100-meter relay team. • Freshmen Whitney Adams and Adrianna Newell enter their first seasons as Jayhawks with impressive resumes coming out of high school. Both will be expected to contribute immediately, especially in the relays. • A pair of talented newcomers also come in as part of the hurdles. Kourtney Keller and Tayler Klein both have several championships from their high school days in the 300-meter and 400-meter hurdles. Keller was the 2012 US Junior Olympics 400-meter hurdle champion and Klein won back-to-back Colorado state titles in the 300-meter hurdles. MIDDLE DISTANCE DISTANCE HEADLINES • The distance group is the youngest on this season’s team. Just two upperclassmen make up the 17-woman team, but several of its members are primed to make immediate impacts after impressive cross country campaigns. • Senior Natalie Becker had the best track season of her career last year and will look to build on that in 2014. She was an all-conference performer in the mile indoors and the 1,500 meters outdoors. She has the talent to challenge for conference titles and qualify for NCAA Championships. • Hannah Richardson has been a welcome addition to the distance squad ever since she stepped on campus 18 months ago. She took fourth in the 1,500 meters as a freshman at the 2013 conference championships and is coming off an outstanding cross country season that saw her earn All-Big 12 and All-Midwest Region accolades. Don’t be surprised if Richardson is sitting atop some awards stands come time for the post-season meets. • Senior Kyra Kilwein is another valuable veteran who will bring some important experience to the group. She has just one indoor season of eligibility but could easily contend for a host of medals in the 3,000 and 5,000 meters. • Twins Malika and Nashia Baker may just be freshmen but they ran like seasoned veterans during the cross country campaign this past fall. If they are capable of carrying their cross country prowess over to the track, watch for them to turn some heads. • Other freshmen to watch are Courtney Coppinger, Lawrence native Grace Morgan and Lydia Saggau. HANNAH RICHARDSON RHAVEAN KING DIAMOND DIXON 2014 KANSAS TRACK & FIELD12
  • THROWS/COMBINED EVENTS VERTICAL JUMPS HEADLINES • Vertical jumps will be an important group for the success of the women’s team in 2014. Reigning indoor national champion Natalia Bartnovskaya returns but has eligibility left for just one indoor season, meaning some will need to step up and fill the void she leaves when she finishes her collegiate career in March. • Bartnovskaya is likely considered the favorite to win the Big 12 and NCAA pole vault Championships during the indoor season. The senior rewrote the school record books last year and the same will be expected of her this season. • Junior Jaimie House has been a steady and important presence for the KU vaulters over the last two seasons, turning in scoring performances at each conference meet in which she has competed and earning trips to the NCAA West Prelim each year. Look for her to take the next step in 2014 and challenge for more top finishes. • In the high jump pits, Colleen O’Brien will look to get back to her normal self after injury hampered the end of her 2013 season. O’Brien has proven she can clear some big heights and leap with the best in the Big 12, taking third and fourth at the 2013 indoor and 2012 outdoor league championships, respectively. • Freshman Grace Pickell will join O’Brien and could help form one of the best high jump duos in the nation. Pickell is the top high jump prospect ever to come out of the state of Kansas as she claimed two state titles and is the state record holder in the event. HORIZONTAL JUMPS HEADLINES • Trying to fill the void left by national champion Andrea Geubelle and All-American Francine Simpson will not be an easy feat for the horizontal jumpers this year, but coach Wayne Pate has a key returner and has brought in some fresh blood which could help keep this group an important part of the women’s team’s success this year. • Sydney Conley is back for her sophomore season after leaping to second team All-America honors in the long jump last season. Expect Conley could move up to be a favorite in the Big 12 event this year. She also ran some of the faster legs for the 4x100-meter relay a year ago. • Amanda Caines returns for her senior season after showing great improvement in the triple jump last season. She is capable of posting a top-eight finish at either of the conference meets and provide her team with some valuable points. • Freshman Alexis Johnson comes into Lawrence as an accomplished long jumper from the prep school ranks in Texas. HEADLINES • Like the sprints, these groups are expected to be one of the strongest and most profitable for the Kansas women this year. • Lindsay Vollmer returns for her junior season after making school history by claiming the Jayhawk women’s first outdoor title in the heptathlon a year ago. A national championship and a pair of conference titles will be tough to attain again this year, but Vollmer is now a veteran and has the experience on the big stages which could give her an edge over her competitors. • Jessica Maroszek is back for one more go-around in the shot put and discus. The senior is the defending conference champion and a two-time first team All-American in the discus but has also turned in scoring performances in the shot put. She ended her junior campaign with some of the best throws of her career and will look to keep that momentum as she enters 2014. • Sophomore Anastasiya Muchkayev made an immediate impact for her team last year, posting scoring performances in the shot put at both the conference meets as well as the discus outdoors. She also attained second team All-America status in the indoor shot put last March and will look to move up to the first team this year. • Javelin specialist Johanna Kreuger comes to Lawrence by way of Kiel, Germany and will try to fill the void left by All- American Heather Bergmann in the event. Krueger has some top finishes on the European circuit and will bring some welcome veteran leadership to the group. • Newcomers Dasha Tsema and Kianna Weinzheimer round out the throwers while Talia Marquez will join Vollmer in the combined events.

  • 45THIS IS KANSAS TRACK & FIELD 4 5 6 1. THE NICKNAME: JAYHAWK The University of Kansas is home of the Jayhawk, a mythical bird with a fascinating history. Its origin is rooted in the historic struggles of Kansas settlers. The term “Jayhawk” was probably coined about 1848. Accounts of its use appeared from Illinois to Texas. The name combines two birds - the blue jay, a noisy, quarrelsome thing known to rob other nests, and the sparrow hawk, a stealthy hunter. 2. THE ALMA MATER In 1891, professor George Barlow Penny searched for a school song for the Glee and Mandolin Club to sing on its tour through Kansas to Denver and back. No one responded with an original song in answer to his appeals. Just before departure, he thought of the Cornell song “Far Above Cayuga’s Waters.” Hastily changing a few words, he gave it to the glee club men to sing on the trip. He did not expect the song to be used after their return, but “Crimson and the Blue” still goes on. The music is not Cornell’s but an old English folk tune, “Annie Lisle.” 3. CAMPANILE HILL Campanile Hill forms the picturesque backdrop for Memorial Stadium. On a sunny fall Saturday, the “Hill” is transformed into a congregating place for watching Jayhawk football, sunning and barbequing. Potter Lake, just to the southwest of Memorial Stadium and at the bottom of Campanile Hill, adds to the beauty of the Kansas campus. 4. THE K RING The K Ring symbolizes a uniquely shared experience between generations of varsity letter winners at the University of Kansas. As a Jayhawk you are expected to uphold tradition and retain the characteristics of a champion while continuing the create your own legacy. 5. WAVING THE WHEAT Since the early days of KU sports, it has been a ritual of Jayhawk fans to “wave the wheat” following every Kansas scoring drive in football. The tradition also extends to Allen Fieldhouse where fans “wave the wheat” when an opponent fouls out and at the conclusion of every Jayhawk victory. The ritual consists of fans waving their arms in the air, an activity which, when done by a large crowd, resembles a breezy Kansas wheat field. 6. THE ROCK CHALK CHANT The Rock Chalk Chant has been the battle cry of KU fans for more than 80 years. This strange, traditional chant, which is among the most famous of all college cheers, was started by E.H.S. Bailey, a professor of chemistry. On May 21, 1886, Bailey submitted the cheer to his club. “GIVE THE WORLD YOUR BEST AND THE BEST YOU’VE GOT AND THE BEST WILL COME BACK TO YOU.” PHOG ALLEN

  • STANLEY REDWINE HEAD COACH Arkansas, 1985 14th Season Already a member of the Kansas Athletics Hall of Fame, Stanley Redwine is a living legend in Jayhawk country and one of the most well-respected coaches in the United States. A former All-American himself at the University of Arkansas, Redwine has coached 92 individual conference champions, 145 athletes to All-America honors, 15 individual national champions and two teams to Big 12 titles. After the historical season for the 2012-13 women’s track & field team, Redwine was named the NCAA’s Women’s Head Coach of the Year for the first time in his career. Redwine has coached 17 individual National Champions (15 at Kansas), 160 All-Americans (145 at KU), four Olympians (all at KU) and 23 National Championship teams between his years as head coach at Kansas and Tulsa and an assistant coach at Arkansas. The last two seasons marked perhaps the most successful stretch in Redwine’s Kansas coaching career, mentoring the women’s track & field team to numerous individual accolades with the most notable being the program’s first NCAA Staff Bios 2014 team championship in 2013. Lindsay Vollmer became Kansas’ first female NCAA Champion with her win in the heptathlon while 16 other Jayhawks earned Outdoor All-America honors in 2013. Pupil Diamond Dixon not only claimed a national championship, four conference titles and four more All-America honors in 2012, but also won a gold medal at the Olympics in London as part of the 4x400-meter relay team. In the summer of 2008 in Beijing, China, Redwine athletes Scott Russell and Nickesha Anderson represented their respective countries in the Games of the XXIX (29th) Olympiad. Russell finished in 10th place for Canada in the men’s javelin, while Anderson was an alternate on Jamaica’s women’s 4x100-meter relay team. In 2010, Redwine mentored eight athletes to 10 All-America honors with five garnering the elite status during the indoor season and five more picking up the honor during the outdoor season. Behind NCAA Champion Jordan Scott’s performance, the KU men’s team finished seventh 2014 KANSAS TRACK & FIELD56
  • at the 2010 NCAA Outdoor Championships. Scott claimed the pole vault title for the first time in his career. Freshman thrower Mason Finley took home second place in both the shot put and discus at the NCAA Outdoor meet and also earned indoor honors in the shot put. The KU women’s distance medley relay team earned All-America status at the NCAA Indoor Championships, while Lauren Bonds (1,500 meters), Andrea Geubelle (long jump) and Eric Fattig (triple jump) each were All-Americans during the outdoor season. In 2008, Redwine coached 12 track & field All-Americans, which was then the most he had coached in one season in his time at Kansas. He oversaw Egor Agafonov to his second- consecutive National Championship in the weight throw, as well as his fifth and sixth All-America honors (weight throw, hammer throw) and his third-consecutive Big 12 Championship in both the hammer throw and the weight throw.

  • In the 2008 indoor track & field season, Kansas was just one of 10 schools to have both its men’s and women’s teams finish in the top 25 at the NCAA Championships. At the NCAA Outdoor Championships, senior Crystal Manning (long jump and triple jump) and junior Nickesha Anderson (100 meters and 200 meters) each won two All-America honors. Only one other woman (Candace Mason) had previously accomplished the feat in KU history. As an athlete, Redwine placed his name in the Arkansas history books as a 400-meter, 600- yard and 800-meter runner from 1980-83. Redwine was a four-time All-American and was named UA’s Outstanding Track Athlete all four of his years in Fayetteville. Redwine went on to spend nine years as an assistant coach at his alma mater. During his tenure, the Razorbacks captured nine consecutive NCAA Championships and 22 titles from 1985 to 1994 in both track and field and cross country. He helped produce 14 All-Americans and two NCAA Champions in the hurdle and sprint events.

  • Tom Hays is in his 10th season as the vertical jumps coach at the University of Kansas. Hays is a familiar face to the KU track program, as he competed for the Jayhawks in the mid-80s before receiving his degree in education in 1989. In the last two seasons Hays again developed another talented and deep pole vault group on both the men’s and women’s sides. An average of three men and four women notched top-eight finishes at each of the Big 12 Conference meets with nine of Hays’ vaulters advancing to the NCAA West Preliminary round. In 2013, Natalia Bartnovskaya became Hays’ ninth athlete to win a national title after she vaulted to an NCAA Championship indoors with the seventh- highest mark in NCAA history. She went on to claim the national runner-up finish in the event during the outdoor season, helping the KU women to their first national team title in program history. Hays was named 2011 National Collegiate Pole Vault Coach of the Year after coaching Jordan Scott to the 2010 NCAA Outdoor title in the event. Additionally, Scott won both the indoor and outdoor Big 12 titles in 2010. Hays also guided Ryan Hays, his son, to a fifth- place finish at the 2010 Big 12 Outdoor meet, as the younger Hays cleared 17 feet for the first time in his career. Hays added two pole vault All-Americans to his resumé in 2008 as Kate Sultanova claimed the honor for the fourth time while Scott picked up his first All- America honor.

Scott also won the indoor conference championship in the pole vault and was named the 2007 Big 12 Indoor Freshman Performer of the Year and the 2007 Big 12 Outdoor Freshman Co-Perfomer of the Year. Scott became the first male in school history to recieve either distinction. Sultanova went on to earn All-America honors in both the indoor and outdoor pole vault. Hays coached Sultanova to the 2005 Outdoor Big 12 championship. Sultanova earned Outdoor All-America honors that year with her seventh-place finish at the NCAA Championships and was named the female Big 12 Outdoor Freshman Performer of the Year. At Johnson County Community College, Hays coached two elite pole vaulters, Andrea Dutoit and Amy Linnen. Both won NCAA pole vault championships and were Olympic Trials finalists. Linnen followed Hays to KU where she was the 2005 indoor national champion in the pole vault. During his tenure at Arizona, Hays helped develop Arizona’s pole vault squad into one of the top teams in the nation. In his six seasons, he coached 15 All- Americans, four national champions, two national runner-ups and two collegiate record holders.

  • Michael Whittlesey is in his fifth season as assistant coach for cross country and middle distance/distance running at Kansas. In his short time in Lawrence, Whittlesey has already made a huge impact with both the cross country and track programs. In his four seasons with the Jayhawks, he has guided three Jayhawks to appearances at the NCAA Cross Country Championships: Lauren Bonds, which was a first for a KU woman since the 1994 season, as well as Donny Wasinger and Reid Buchanan on the men’s side. Additionally, in 2010 the Kansas women’s distance medley relay team composed of Bonds, Rebeka Stowe, Cori Christensen and Taylor Washington earned All-America status at the 2010 NCAA Indoor Championships. Whittlesey has mentored six Jayhawks to All-America honors on the track and has seen three of his athletes break school records (Lauren Bonds - indoor mile, indoor 3,000m, outdoor 1,500m, outdoor 5,000m; Amanda Miller - indoor 5,000m and Rebeka Stowe - indoor 3,000m, 3,000m Steeplechase). Whittlesey’s most-decorated Jayhawk, Stowe, was the 2012 Big 12 Champion in the 3,000-meter Steeplechase and also broke the school record in the event on numerous occasions. She earned First Team All-America honors at the 2011 and 2012 NCAA Outdoor Championships with her top-12 finishes in the 3,000-meter Steeplechase. Stowe was also a two-time All-Big 12 honoree on the cross country course. Whittlesey mentored Bonds to an outstanding 2010 senior season as she claimed the Big 12 Outdoor title in the 1,500 meters and went on to earn All-America honors by taking seventh at the NCAA Outdoor Championships. En route to earning All-America honors, Bonds set a new KU record in the event with her time of 4:14.29. Bonds also had a fine year off the track as she was named an Academic All-American and was a finalist for NCAA Woman of the Year. The 2010 cross country season featured junior Donny Wasinger advancing as an individual to the national championship meet. Both Kansas cross country teams finished seventh at the 2010 Big 12 Cross Country Championships. Whittlesey came to KU after serving 11 years as the assistant coach in charge of cross country and distance running for the track program at North Carolina. In addition to his coaching duties at UNC, Whittlesey worked as the assistant director for both men’s and women’s track & field and cross country for his last four seasons at UNC. Under his direction, North Carolina middle distance/ distance produced nine NCAA champions in six years, 70 All-Americans and 36 conference champions. Whittlesey led the track team to back-to-back NCAA titles in the distance medley relay at the 2006 and 2007 Indoor NCAA Championships. Along with the 2007 distance medley relay title, Whittlesey coached sophomore anchor Brie Felnagle to the individual NCAA title in the outdoor 1,500 meters. Under the guidance of Whittlesey, Felnagle captured three NCAA titles and was named an All-American 10 times in her career. MICHAEL WHITTLESEY, PH.D.

  • After assisting the Tar Heels to a fourth-place indoor finish and another top-10 outdoor finish and producing four NCAA individual and relay titles, Whittlesey was awarded the first-ever NCAA Division I Track and Field National Assistant Coach of the Year for women’s middle distance/distance in 2003. Whittlesey also received the 2007 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field East Regional Assistant Coach of the Year honor. Perhaps no other athlete thrived under Whittlesey more than Shalane Flanagan. Flanagan was the NCAA cross country champion in 2002 and 2003. Not only was Flanagan the first Carolina woman to ever take the cross country national championship, but she was only the third woman in NCAA history to successfully defend her title. A three-time recipient of the NCAA Cross Country Athlete of the Year award, Flanagan also excelled on the track. She won a pair of indoor national championships in 2003. Individually, she claimed the title in the 3,000 meters and then teamed up with teammates Erin Donohue, Anissa Gainey and Alice Schmidt to take first- place honors in the distance medley relay. Flanagan also earned a spot on the 2004 U.S. Olympic team in the 5,000 meters before claiming a bronze medal in the 10,000 at the 2008 Olympic Games. Whittlesey also coached standout runner Alice Schmidt, who was a two-time national champion in the outdoor 800 and the first North Carolina track & field athlete to win an NCAA title in the same event twice. Both Schmidt and Flanagan went on to earn places on the 2005 U.S. Track and Field World Championship team, while Donohue earned All-America status in both cross country and track. Whittlesey twice won both the ACC Cross Country Coach of the Year and Southeast Region Coach of the Year awards, earning each in 1999 and 2003. A native of Morris, Conn., Whittlesey started his coaching career at UConn as a graduate assistant. While at UConn he assisted with distance and was a pole vault and multi-event coach. He then served two years at UNC-Charlotte where he worked as an assistant coach. While with the 49ers, Whittlesey led his athletes to 53 new school records in 18 different events and coached all-conference performers in the triple jump and javelin. Whittlesey’s competitive experience includes being the first American finisher in the 1995 Boston Marathon. He also qualified for the 1996 Olympic Trials in the marathon after competing as a non-recruited athlete at the University of Connecticut. He graduated from UConn in May 1990 with a bachelor’s degree in sports medicine/athletic training and later earned a master’s in biophysical science/ exercise physiology in 1993. In 1997, Whittlesey received a doctorate of philosophy in sports science/exercise physiology from UConn. Whittlesey and his wife, Carol, have two children: 10-year-old daughter Samantha and seven-year-old son Ryan.

  • UNIVERSITY CHANCELLOR Since arriving at the University of Kansas in 2009, Bernadette Gray-Little has advanced KU’s mission of lifting students and society by educating leaders, building healthy communities, and making discoveries that change the world. Through the Bold Aspirations strategic plan, KU is changing the way it prepares students for success. It’s fostering research and scholarship across all disciplines, and sharing the benefits of a flagship university with the state and world. Gray-Little led the effort to create new admission standards for the University of Kansas. These new standards take effect in 2016 and will give students and families a more accurate picture of what it takes to be successful at a research university. Under Chancellor Gray-Little’s leadership, the university has also revamped financial aid, creating four-year renewable scholarships and expanding the Jayhawk Generations Scholarship. And it has launched its first university-wide curriculum, the KU Core, which incorporates both classes and experiences, making KU a leader among its national peers. DR.

  • DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS Dr. Sheahon (SHAY-un) Zenger is a coach at heart. But when KU Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little introduced the Hays, Kan., native as KU’s Athletics Director January 3, 2011, he promised not to call any plays for the coaches. That doesn’t mean, though, that he won’t be right there with them - and their student-athletes - every step of the way. For it’s his genuine care for coaches and student- athletes that has stamped his career in intercollegiate athletics. Zenger comes to KU after serving for five years as athletics director at Illinois State University, helping steer ISU Athletics to a place of prominence in the Missouri Valley Conference. The Redbirds won a conference- leading seven league titles during the 2009-10 season and captured their second Valley All-Sports Trophy in three years. At the beginning, Zenger wasn’t headed toward a career in administration. He was nine years old when he told his father he wanted to be a coach, and it didn’t take long for that dream to materialize. After playing football at Fort Hays State and Mid-American Nazarene College, he finished his undergraduate degree at Kansas State. Even before he received his bachelor’s degree in English and secondary education in 1988, Zenger was assisting the football coaches at Manhattan (Kan.) High School. His first college football coaching job came at Drake University right after graduation. In 1989, at age 23, Zenger joined Bill Snyder’s staff at Kansas State as one of the nation’s youngest full- time football staff members; he served in key roles as assistant recruiting coordinator and director of football operations. Zenger completed his master’s degree in journalism and mass communication in 1992 while helping Snyder bring Wildcat football to unprecedented success. It became evident, though, that more than coaching was in store for Zenger. He sought advice from then-KU Chancellor Gene Budig, who convinced him to pursue a Ph.D. at KU. As he completed his Ph.D. in educational policy and leadership (1996), Zenger contributed communications and special projects support to the office of the executive vice-chancellor, Ed Meyen, and wrote the professional life history of then-chancellor Del Shankel, while strengthening his understanding of university leadership at the highest levels.

Drake (Assistant Coach) 1987 . . . . . . . Manhattan HS (Head Coach) While focusing his attention on academics, he managed to stay involved in the world of intercollegiate athletics, and specifically football. ‘Involved’ may be an understatement. In 1993 Zenger and a friend founded “American Football Quarterly”, a magazine for coaches. Zenger served as publisher - and then editor - until 1995, when he sold his share of the by-then-thriving magazine. Still, coaching stayed in his blood. After earning his doctorate, Zenger in 1996 signed on as the recruiting coordinator for the brand-new NCAA Division I football program at the University of South Florida. A year later he joined the University of Wyoming football staff as recruiting coordinator and within two years rose to assistant head coach, a position he still considers one of the crowning achievements of his career. Zenger stayed at Wyoming through the 2000 season before returning to Kansas State. He spent a year in the KSU College of Business, raising more than $2 million and restructuring its development program with research and planning. He rejoined KSU Athletics in 2001 as assistant athletics director for major gifts, helping KSU initiate important development strategies. In 2002 he was appointed KSU’s associate athletics director for development, a position he held until 2005, when he was named Athletics Director at Illinois State. A published author and researcher, Zenger served for three years on the NCAA Division I Committee on Student-Athlete Reinstatement. He also served on two NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) Division committees, and was a member of the Executive Committee of NACDA’s Division I FCS Athletic Directors Association. He is also a member of many professional and university organizations, including the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA), the Association for the Study of Higher Education and the American Football Coaches Association. Zenger is married to the former Pam McAnarney. The couple has three children: Luke, Abby and Jake. 2014 KANSAS TRACK & FIELD74

  • Anschutz Pavilion | Dec. 6, 2012 | Lawrence, Kan. WEEK 1: BOB TIMMONS CHALLENGE Kansas senior sprinter Paris Daniels broke two facility records en route to claiming two individual titles at the Bob Timmons Challenge, KU track and field’s season opening meet. Eight other Jayhawks were victorious in individual events, as were all four relay teams. Daniels, who returns for her senior season after claiming First Team All-America honors in the outdoor 200 meters last season, had a fantastic night to begin her final season in Lawrence. The St. Louis, Mo., native began her day in the 60 meters, where she would sprint to the finish in a winning time of 7.32. Not only was that the fastest of her collegiate career, but it also topped the previous Anschutz facility record of 7.38 set by Nickesha Anderson in 2008. Daniels wasn’t finished there though, hours later, in the 200 meters, she rewrote the facility record books again, charging through the 200 meters in a scorching time 23.62. Daniels won the event by nearly a full half-second and erased the previous Anschutz record of 23.85, also held by Anderson. Both of Daniels’ 60-meter and 200-meter times rank first in the NCAA through the first week of the indoor season. Alena Krechyk seemed to pick up where she left off at the end of the 2012 season, a year which saw her claim All-America honors in both the weight and hammer throws. The senior out of Grodno, Belarus hit a distance of 20.35 meters (66-9.25 ft.) on her fourth attempt in the weight throw, breaking her own facility record by more than two feet, and won the event. Junior Brendan Soucie helped the Kansas men to a quick start as he won the 3,000 meters in his first ever race at that distance. The Osawatomie, Kan., native completed the 15 laps in 8:46.35, pulling away down the final 800 meters to win the event and kick off a successful day for the Jayhawks on the track. In her first meet as a Jayhawk Anastasiya Muchkayev made a great first impression in the shot put. The freshman out of Be’er Sheva, Israel threw to a distance of 16.18 meters (53-1 ft.) on her sixth and final attempt of the day earn an easy victory. The personal-best mark broke the Israeli national indoor record in the event and put Muchkayev in the early-season NCAA lead. Sophomore hurdler Michael Stigler was another who appeared to have not skipped a beat since his phenomenal freshman campaign ended last June. The 2012 Big 12 Freshman Track Athlete of the Year competed in the 600 yards for the first time in his career, but looked like a veteran as he finished the race in 1:11.76 to nab his first individual title of the 2012 season. The All-American won the race by a two-second margin and finished first in a field the featured five Jayhawks placing in the top-10. In the high jump pits sophomore Jonathan Fuller brought the fans to their feet later in the evening, winning the event with a personal-best clearance. The Dallas, Texas native didn’t record a single foul on the way to his top height, which measured to 2.16 meters (7-1 ft.). Fuller was unable to get over the bar on his first two tries but snuck over on his third, sealing the victory and notching the highest leap of his career. Anschutz Pavilion | Jan. 5, 2013 | Lawrence, Kan. WEEK 2: BILL EASTON CLASSIC The third-ranked Kansas women’s track and field team saw winners in all but one event at the Bill Easton Classic inside Anschutz Sports Pavilion. Three Jayhawks posted NCAA-leading marks while 15 individual KU athletes and all four relays took home victories from Kansas’ first meet of the new year. Starting out the day for the Jayhawks were the women’s pole vaulters, who again looked dominant on their home runway. Junior Demi Payne entered the day as the national leader in the event after hitting a mark of 4.10 meters (13-5.25 ft.) in her season-opening win at the Bob Timmons Challenge. Fellow Jayhawk, Natalia Bartnovskaya, didn’t let Payne hold onto the prestigious title for long though, leaping to a new NCAA-leading mark and winning her first event in a Kansas uniform. The junior transfer out of Vincennes College (Ind.) fouled only twice at her first three heights before vaulting over the 4.12 meter (13-6.25 ft.) bar to take the victory. Bartnovskaya outdueled her teammate and eventual runner-up, Payne, whose streak of four-consecutive pole vault wins inside Anschutz Pavilion was snapped. The men’s top performer on the day was sprinter Kyle Clemons, who was seeing his first action of the season in a Kansas uniform. Competing in the 600 yards, the senior out of Rowlett, Texas, charged through the 2.5 laps to clock in with a new personal-best of 1:11.02. The mark moves the two-time Second Team All-American to the top of the national list and over teammate Michael Stigler, who currently sits at second in the NCAA. Andrea Geubelle took part in her first triple jump competition since winning bronze in the event at the U.S. Olympic Team Trials last June. The senior ended the meet for the Jayhawks on a high note as she hit a mark of 13.16 meters (43-2.25 ft.) on her second jump of the day to head into the finals with a commanding lead. Unable to improve on her semifinal mark, Geubelle eventually claimed the win by more than a foot with her jump that is tops in the nation this young season. The men’s and women’s 3,000 meters kicked off the day on the track for Kansas. Junior Natalie Becker backed up her runner-up performance a month ago in the Bob Timmons Challenge with another strong outing, however this time, she came out with the event title. Becker crossed the finish line in 10:05.92, nearly three seconds ahead of the second-place finisher. Her time was also the fastest by a Jayhawk at that point in the season and put the St. Louis, Mo., native in the top-15 of the NCAA rankings. On the men’s side, Kansas had a host of Crimson and Blue-clad runners take to the track in the 3,000 meters, many for the first time this season. Junior Josh Munsch and sophomore Reid Buchanan controlled the race from the outset, battling for position for much of the race before Munsch used a strong closing kick over the final 200 meters to beat his teammate. Munsch finished in a new personal-record time of 8:22.80 and outpaced Buchanan, who also ran to a career-best of 8:23.70. Anschutz Pavilion | Jan. 11, 2013 | Lawrence, Kan. WEEK 3: JAYHAWK CHALLENGE Featuring strong performances from Kyle Clemons, Andrea Geubelle and Natalia Bartnovskaya, the Kansas Jayhawk track & field teams again looked impressive at the Jayhawk Challenge inside Anschutz Pavilion. Kansas saw three facility records fall as well several of its athletes move up the national ranks in its third home meet of the season. For the second week in a row, junior Bartnovskaya put on a show in front of the home fans as she won her second pole vault title in as many weeks. The JUCO transfer, whose winning clearance of 4.12 meters (13- 6.25 ft.) a week ago was already No. 1 in the nation, somehow managed to top that performance in just her third competition in a Kansas uniform. Bartnovskaya fouled only once while she easily cleared the first four heights of the day and took down the five-year-old facility record of 4.13 meters (13-5.50 ft.) held by former KU great Kate Sultanova in the process. She then flew over the next bar of 4.29 meters (14-0.75 ft.) to sew up the victory over teammate Demi Payne and extend her NCAA-leading mark. Her clearance is just an inch off from tying the school record and moves her to No. 2 on the all-time school performance lists. A week removed from taking the national lead in the triple jump, Geubelle tried to do the same at the Jayhawk Challenge, however this time, in the long jump. The senior was never challenged in the event, soaring to a mark of 6.25 meters (20-6.25 ft.) on her second attempt of the day to not only break the Anschutz facility record by more than four inches, but to give her the NCAA-leading mark in the event. Geubelle came close to topping the mark over her next four jumps, but fouled on two of those attempts and was unable to improve on her second-round leap. It didn’t matter though, as Geubelle earned her first long jump title in Lawrence since 2010, beating the field by just under two feet. On the track, Clemons again notched an impressive performance in the 600 yards for the second week in a row. The senior out of Rowlett, Texas, who was already in possession of the NCAA’s best time in the event, blazed around the track in a personal-best 1:09.77 to break Texas Longhorn John Patterson’s 17-year- old facility record of 1:09.91. Clemons raced to first by more than four seconds and collected his fourth collegiate victory in the event with his time that still remains as the best in the nation. Seeing her first competitive action since helping the U.S. Olympic 4x400-meter relay team win gold at the London Olympics in August, Diamond Dixon returned to the track to kick off her 2013 season. The junior, running in the 600 yards, looked like her old self as she came from behind in the final 50 meters to take the event title over Kansas State’s Sonia Gaskin. Dixon posted a time of 1:22.69 to vault herself to the top of the national performance list in the event. In field action, Jessica Maroszek notched the first shot put win of her young season. The junior out of Seymour, Wis., started her day strong with a toss of 15.04 meters (49-4.25 ft.). The mark was a new indoor personal best and propelled her on to the the win, topping the runner-up finisher by more than two feet. Anschutz Pavilion | Jan. 25, 2013 | Lawrence, Kan. WEEK 4: JAYHAWK CLASSIC Sophomore Lindsay Vollmer broke the 15-year-old school pentathlon record Friday afternoon as the Kansas men’s and women’s track teams wrapped up their home indoor schedule at the Jayhawk Classic inside Anschutz Pavilion. Eleven other Jayhawks collected individual victories including all four of the KU relay teams. Vollmer, who hails from Hamilton, Mo., got her day started off strong with a personal-best performance in the first of her five events, the 60-meter hurdles. Vollmer crossed the finish in 8.53 to collect an impressive 1,101 points to start her pursuit of the prestigious record off on the right foot. Another personal best in the high jump (1.72 meters [5-7.75 ft.]) earned her 879 points and a strong throw of 11.66 meters (38-3.25 ft.) in the shot put claimed 639 points and put the sophomore in a commanding lead with two events to go. In the long jump, she notched her third personal best of the day, leaping to a mark of 5.85 meters (19-2.5 ft.). She entered the 800 meters needing only 722 points to post a new school and facility record point total. Vollmer completed the four-lap race in 2:26.24 to bring her point total up to 4,073, enough to take down Candace Mason’s 15-year-old pentathlon record by 20 points. Vollmer’s mark places her at No. 2 in the NCAA rankings this season and puts her in prime position for a qualifying spot at the NCAA Indoor Championships in early March. As has become a weekly tradition, the KU women saw another outstanding performance from Andrea Geubelle, one that moved her name near the top of the national lists once again. Competing in the triple jump Friday afternoon, Geubelle leaped her way to an easy victory, recording a mark of 13.45 meters (44-1.5 ft.) on her final attempt of the day. The jump was just an inch off the NCAA-leading mark and is her best ever inside Anschutz Pavilion. Geubelle now finds her name in the nation’s top-five in both the triple jump and long jump with just over a month before the NCAA Indoor Championships. For the second time in less than a week, junior Alex Bishop recorded a new personal best in the pole vault. The Phoenix, Ariz., native cleared the 5.31 meter (17-5 ft.) bar on his third and final attempt at the height, propelling him to a third-place finish overall. The mark is a centimeter better than his winning mark from a week ago at the UCS Pole Vault Summit in Reno, Nev., and ranks him ninth in the national rankings. Former Jayhawk and 2012 NCAA Champion Jordan Scott went on to win the event, breaking the facility record with his clearance of 5.56 meters (18-3 ft.). In the women’s pole vault, Demi Payne had a career day, posting a new personal best and earning her second victory of the season. The New Braunfels, Texas product needed two attempts at each height, but continued to advance through to the top of the leaderboard. Payne then vaulted her way to a clearance of 4.25 meters (13-11.25 ft.), improving on her previous career-high by an inch and clinching the event win. Payne now joins teammate Natalia Bartnovskaya (who was idle Friday) with marks ranked in the top-five of the NCAA performance list this season. 2014 KANSAS TRACK & FIELD136
  • The Armory | Feb. 1-2, 2013 | New York, N.Y. WEEK 5: ARMORY COLLEGIATE INVITATIONAL University of Kansas track & field’s Andrea Geubelle and Natalia Bartnovskaya each claimed school records Friday as they competed in the 12th-Annual Armory Collegiate Invitational inside the legendary Armory Track & Field Center in New York City. Three school records were broken or tied by Kansas women as the No. 2-ranked Jayhawks finished third in the team scoring, amassing 57.5 points against a field featuring six of the top-10 ranked teams in the nation. A senior out of University Place, Wash., Geubelle entered the day boasting marks in the triple jump and long jump that each ranked in the top-five in the nation. She had no hesitations in again moving up the national lists, something she had done on three separate occasions already this season. Geubelle looked strong from the start of the long jump, twice improving on her season’s best mark in the first round of jumps and entered the finals in first with her leap of 6.35 meters (20-10 ft.). With group of competitors gaining on her, a group including teammate Francine Simpson, Geubelle struck gold on her fifth trip down the runway, soaring to a mark that measured out to 6.69 meters (21-11.5 ft.). The jump smashed Charisse Bacchus’ previous Kansas indoor record by 11 inches and also took down the Armory Collegiate Invitational record. The All-American topped the NCAA’s previous top 2013 mark by almost a foot and now holds the sixth-best long jump mark in the world this year. Geubelle went on to claim the easy victory and her second long jump title of the season. Simpson also recorded a season best, hitting a mark of 6.31 meters (20-8.5 ft.) on her fifth attempt, enough to earn her a fourth-place finish. Geubelle’s leap all but assures her a spot in her fourth-consecutive NCAA Indoor Championships and second competing in the long jump, where she finished eighth a year ago. Bartnovskaya entered the day boasting wins in her previous three competitions and the nation’s third- highest clearance of 4.29 meters (14-1 ft.) this year. A win at the Armory would be no easy feet though, as Bartnovskaya, along with fellow Jayhawk Demi Payne, would go up against nine of the top-25 vaulters in the nation. Bartnovskaya recorded only one foul as she advanced through her first four heights on the day. The nearly blemish-free sheet made her one of only two remaining vaulters left in the competition. With the bar up to 4.30 meters (14-1.25 ft.), Bartnovskaya needed just one more clearance to seal the win and to tie the KU indoor record in the event. After Cincinnati’s MacKenzie Fields failed to get over the bar on her first two leaps, Bartnovskaya managed to slink over, clinching her fourth pole vault win in four-straight meets. Senior Alena Krechyk broke her own school weight throw record and claimed the event title on the second and final day of the Armory Collegiate Invitational. Krechyk didn’t waste any time, heaving the 20-pound weight 21.76 meters (71-4.75 ft.) on her first throw of the morning. In only one throw Krechyk smashed her own school record by over two feet, broke the Armory Collegiate meet record and secured the No. 2 mark in the NCAA this season. Feb 8-9, 2013 | Fayetteville, Ark./Seattle, Wash./Ames, Iowa WEEK 6: TYSON INV/HUSKY INV/ISU CLASSIC Kansas senior Andrea Geubelle moved herself into the top-10 of the all-time NCAA triple jump performance list as she claimed the event title at the Tyson Invitational. Geubelle’s mark broke her previous school record by nearly 10 inches and was the No. 2 mark in the NCAA this year. On just her second attempt of the afternoon, Geubelle flew to new personal and school record mark of 13.91 meters (45-7.75 ft.). The mark topped her previous best of 13.67 meters (44-10.25 ft.), which she hit en route to the 2012 NCAA indoor triple jump title last March. Her jump also made her the ninth-farthest indoor triple jumper in NCAA history. The win extended her triple jump winning streak to 11 of the last 13 competitions versus collegians and gives her the 11th-farthest jump in the world in 2013. Junior Natalia Bartnovskaya smashed her own school pole vault record as she claimed her fifth-consecutive pole vault win with her mark that is five inches better than the previous school record. After clearing 4.33 meters (14-2.5 ft.) Bartnovskaya was one of only two left standing as she was joined by former Arkansas national champion and the current NCAA-record holder, Tina Sutej. After two-near makes, Bartnovskaya slid over the 4.43 meter (14-6.25 ft.) bar with just millimeters to spare, clinching the victory over the three- time Arkansas All-American and snagging the new school record. Earlier in the afternoon, Kyle Clemons posted one of his men’s team’s best performances of the season. Running in his first 400 meters of the year, the senior ran his fastest race in nearly two seasons. He was competing in the eighth of 16 heats and against a 54-man field, but the jam-packed event didn’t slow the Rowlett, Texas native. Clemons sprinted the two laps in 46.85 to win his heat by nearly a second and eventually claim the overall victory by .03 seconds. His time was the second-fastest among Big 12 athletes on the year and put him at No. 11 in the NCAA standings. For the second time in a week, junior Josh Munsch recorded a career-best and moved up the all-time school performance list in the mile as he competed at the Husky Classic in Seattle. He finished the mile race in 4:03.18 to finish fifth overall. The time was nearly a full second better than the race he ran just seven days earlier. Buchanan joined Munsch in the heats of the mile-run. The sophomore clocked in with a time of 4:10.76 to improve on his previous best by two seconds. Buchanan’s time was good enough to earn him a 39th-place finish. Evan Landes competed in his first collegiate 5,000 meters. The Mulvane, Kan., product ran the 3.1-mile race in 14:22.41 to claim a 24th-place finish. The time is the third-fastest by a Big 12 athlete this season. The KU men saw two solid performances in the final day of the Iowa State Classic. In the seeded section of the 600 yards junior Dominique Manley ran to a season-best time of 1:12.98 to finish 10th overall. Manley returned to the track later in the day as part of the men’s 4x400-meter relay team. Freshman Nick Ucherek, junior Teddy Oteba, Manley and junior Nick Seckfort combined to run 3:20.56, earning the quartet am 18th-place finish. Lied Recreation Center | Feb. 23-24, 2013 | Ames, Iowa WEEK 7: BIG 12 CHAMPIONSHIPS The University of Kansas women’s track & field team claimed the 2013 Big 12 Indoor Track & Field team title after collecting a total of 150.5 points at the two-day meet held inside the Lied Recreation Center. The championship was the first conference title in the program’s history and the first for any KU team - men’s or women’s - since the Kansas men won the Big Eight indoor title in 1983. The KU men ended the meet with a sixth-place finish after tallying 74.5 points. Andrea Geubelle left little doubt on her status as the Big 12’s top triple jumper, hitting a mark of 13.49 meters (44-3.25 ft.) on her first attempt of the day. The mark shot her up the leaderboard and into the first-place spot. Geubelle went on to claim her second-consecutive indoor triple jump championship and gave her team an additional 10 points to start the Jayhawks off on the right foot on the meet’s final day. Junior Diamond Dixon returned to her gold-medal form as she also defended her Big 12 title in the 400 meters. Dixon used her signature strong final kick to outpace the field down the final 50 meters to earn the victory. The junior clocked in with a season-best time of 52.52 for the win, the fifth-fastest in the NCAA this season. Paris Daniels made school history as she became the first Jayhawk to win the 200 meters at the Big 12 Indoor Championships. The senior ran to a personal best and broke the facility record in the semifinals, running 23.15 for the fastest qualifying time as she moved on to the final Sunday. She leaned over the finish in 23.29 to earn the gold medal and retain the 200-meter title after winning the outdoor 200 meters a year ago. The men’s team was led on the final day by the 4x400-meter relay team, who turned in its best time of the season in a second-place finish. Michael Stigler, Michael Hester, Kyle Clemons and Kenneth McCuin passed the baton around in 3:08.06 to claim the final eight points of their team’s overall score. The time is the second-fastest in school history and moves the group into the top-15 in the NCAA this season. A day after breaking the 30-year-old school record in the 400 meters, Clemons entered the final with the top qualifying time of 46.44. The senior completed the quarter-mile lap in 47.04 to finish third overall, his highest-ever finish at the indoor conference meet. Sophomore Lindsay Vollmer needed to overcome a 14-point deficit in the pentathlon with a solid run in the 800 meters to take home her first league title. The sophomore completed the race in 2:23.16, adding 781 points to her final total of 4,123, enough to give her the conference championship. Vollmer’s win marked the first conference title in the pentathlon for a Jayhawk since Candance Mason won the event in 1998. Vollmer’s mark also broke her own school record in the event and moved her up to No. 5 in the NCAA standings. Senior Francine Simpson continued her conference dominance in the long jump after winning both the indoor and outdoor league titles a year ago. On Simpson’s second attempt of finals she flew to a mark of 6.59 meters (21-7.5 ft.) to not only give herself a new personal best, but also break the Big 12 meet record. No other competitor would be able to best Simpon’s mark, giving the Chapelton, Jamaica native her second-straight indoor long jump conference title. The KU long jumpers collected a total of 22 points for the team total, the most by a Jayhawk event group for the meet. Alena Krechyk was the favorite heading into the conference’s weight throw championship and the senior didn’t disappoint. On just her second throw of the afternoon, she heaved the weight to 21.38 meters (70- 1.75 ft.). None of the other 18 competitors were able to come within 2.5 feet of Krechyk’s mark, earning the senior her second Big 12 weight throw title in three seasons. Krechyk was the first Jayhawk to win two conference championships in the throws at both the indoor and outdoor league events. The KU pole vaulters led the way on the men’s side with four of the five Jayhawks claiming a top-eight finish. It was a career day for Alex Bishop who went on to claim the overall title, outdueling teammates Casey Bowen and Regan Gilbert and Texas’ Reese Watson for the win. All four athletes were able to clear 5.17 meters (16-11.5 ft.), however Bishop’s fewer fouls on the previous heights vaulted him to the winner’s stand. Bishop’s win marks the fifth time in the last seven years the indoor Big 12 Championship has gone to a Jayhawk and brings KU’s overall indoor pole vault league championship tally to 32 titles, the most of any Kansas event group. Bowen went on to finish second, while Gilbert finished in a tie for third. Sophomore Greg Lupton also put forth a scoring effort, clearing 5.02 meters (16-5.50 ft.) to finish eighth. The men’s pole vaulters gave their team 24.5 points toward the overall total to propel KU near the top of the team standings. 1372013 IN REVIEW
  • March 1-2, 2013 | Fayetteville, Ark./South Bend, Ind. WEEK 8: ARKANSAS QUALIFIER/ALEX WILSON INV The Kansas women’s 4x400-meter relay team ran the second-fastest time in school history at the Alex Wilson Invitational to earn a spot at the NCAA Indoor Championships. The relay team’s qualification brought the women’s team total up to 11 athletes who qualified in 10 events at the NCAA Championships. Needing to post the fastest time of the season, the women’s 4x400-meter relay team of seniors Denesha Morris, Paris Daniels, Taylor Washington and junior Diamond Dixon turned in the performance of the year. The team went on to pass the baton around in 3:33.71 to finish second overall and move their names into the top-10 of the NCAA rankings. The quartet not only shaved five seconds off their previous best, but turned in the second-fastest time in school history to claim their spot at next week’s national championships as they now sit at No. 7 on this season’s national performance list. Feshman Sydney Conley and the men’s distance medley relay team each posted new season bests Friday as the members of the Kansas Jayhawks’ track & field teams took part in the first day of the Alex Wilson Last Chance meet. In one of the most exciting and competitive relays in the U.S. this year, the KU men also moved up the school’s all-time performance list in the distance medley relay. Sophomores Reid Buchanan, Michael Hester and juniors Brendan Soucie and Josh Munsch combined for the fourth-fastest time in Kansas history. The quartet passed the baton around in 9:38.89 to finish 21st in a field that saw the top-15 finishers post times faster than the previous NCAA-best. Randal Tyson Center | March 8-9, 2013 | Fayetteville, Ark. WEEK 9: NCAA INDOOR CHAMPIONSHIPS The University of Kansas women’s track & field team finished second at the NCAA Indoor Championships Saturday inside the Randal Tyson Track Center. On the shoulders of national champions Andrea Geubelle and Natalia Bartnovskaya, the Jayhawks took the indoor runner-up finish for the second-straight season, amassing 44 points during the two-day meet. Geubelle came into Saturday coming off her first long jump national title the night prior and was looking to make NCAA history by taking both the indoor long jump and triple jump crowns. The reigning indoor triple jump champion, Geubelle left little doubt whether she was the nation’s top triple jumper, turning in four jumps of over 45 feet in her six attempts. With the national-leader, San Diego State’s Shanika Thomas, just a centimeter behind her, Geubelle unleashed the largest jump of her career. She soared to a mark of 14.18 meters (46-6.25 ft.) on her fourth attempt to break her own school record and extend her lead by more than two feet. The jump was the fourth-longest in NCAA history and was just two inches shy of tying the American record. With the victory in hand, the senior again posted a jump of over 46-feet on her final attempt of the day and went on to successfully defend her indoor triple jump crown. Geubelle became the fourth woman in NCAA history to win championships in both the long jump and triple jump at a NCAA indoor meet and the first since 2003. She also tied Dartmouth’s Abbey D’Agostino as the meet’s high point scorer, notching an impressive 20 points. Bartnovskaya also had the performance of her career earlier in the evening in the pole vault. The Krasnoyarsk, Russia native turned in a nearly blemish-free sheet as she took home her first NCAA indoor title and KU’s second in the event. Bartnovskaya vaulted to five-straight clearances without recording a foul, the only competitor to do so. The bar up to 4.45 meters (14-7.25 ft.), she snuck over on her second attempt, not only earning a new career-best, but breaking her own school record in the process. The mark also made Bartnovskaya the eighth-highest indoor vaulter in NCAA history. With the junior and two others remaining in the competition, none could make it over the next progression, giving Bartnovskaya the win by way of her fewer fouls. The women’s 4x400-meter relay team came in at the end of the meet needing to post a score and help their team’s chances at a high place. Seniors Denesha Morris, Paris Daniels, Taylor Washington and junior Diamond Dixon passed the baton around in 3:34.91 to finish third in their heat. The time eventually gave the quartet an eighth-place finish and the KU women’s final point. It proved to be an important one as Kansas claimed second with 44 points over third-place LSU, who collected 43. Like Geubelle, Dixon was also trying for a repeat bid as national champion, running in the final of the 400 meters. In the final, Dixon again used her signature closing kick to make a late push and clock in with a time of 52.38. The season-best time earned Dixon a sixth-place finish and her third-straight First Team All-America honor in the event. Geubelle furthered her argument as one of the all-time Kansas greats as she won her first long jump national title, also the first in school history. The University Place, Wash., product entered the day as the No. 1 jumper in the nation this year and made sure she would keep that distinction at day’s end. Competing in the first of two flights, Geubelle quickly moved up the leaderboard after posting two marks over 20-9 ft. On her third attempt she soared to a distance of 6.55 meters (21-6 ft.) to put herself into first and earn herself three more jumps in the final. Her senior teammate, Francine Simpson, also moved onto the final three attempts after coming up with a clutch jump of 6.24 meters (20-5.75 ft.) on her third attempt of the preliminary flight. With both Jayhawks still jumping, the KU duo continued to post some impressive marks. Simpson notched a jump of 6.41 meters (21-5 ft.) on her fourth jump to move up to third overall, where she would eventually finish her day. Even though Geubelle was unable to improve on her third-attempt leap on her final three jumps, she recorded another jump of 6.53 meters (21-5.25 ft.), which turned out to be an important one in the final standings. Arizona State’s Christabel Nettey jumped to the same distance as Geubelle’s third- round jump, tying her atop the leaderboard. Both athletes finished the day with identical top marks, however the tiebreaker was given to the jumper whose next-best jump is further, which was Geubelle. The KU duo combined for 16 points in the event, the most ever for Kansas in a single event at a NCAA Championship meet, indoor or outdoor. The finish makes Geubelle the sixth national champion in KU women’s track history and made her an indoor First Team All-American for the fourth time. Alena Krechyk kicked off the meet for the Jayhawks in the women’s weight throw. On her first toss of the final, Krechyk launched the 20-pound weight 20.95 meters (68-8.75 ft.). The mark cemented her into a scoring position, where she would eventually place sixth overall. The finish gave Krechyk First Team All- America honors in the event for the first time in her career and notched her team’s first three points of the meet. The Jayhawk’s 44 points were their most ever at an indoor national meet. The Oregon Ducks claimed the overall team title, ending the day with 56 points. 2014 KANSAS TRACK & FIELD138
  • March 28-31, 2013 | Austin, Texas/Emporia, Kan. WEEK 10: TEXAS RELAYS/EMPORIA OPEN Five Jayhawk jumpers claimed event titles while a school record fell at the 86th Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays. Several members of the No. 1-ranked KU women’s squad moved into the top-10 of the NCAA rankings, which put the team in solid position as it looked to kick off its highly-anticipated outdoor season strong. In their first outdoor competitions in a Kansas singlet, senior Christen Guenther and junior Natalia Bartnovskaya inserted their names into the school record books as both leaped to a new school high mark in the pole vault. Guenther got over her first three bars without a single foul and was able to clear the school-record height on just her second attempt. Bartnovskaya needed six attempts to get her three heights but managed to match her teammate. The duo got over 4.31 meters (14’1.75”) to erase former Jayhawk Amy Linnen’s name from the school record books. Guenther managed a runner-up finish and edged her teammate, Bartnovskaya, who finished third, after she turned in fewer misses. Seeing her first action since claiming NCAA indoor titles in both the long jump and triple jump, senior Andrea Geubelle continued her dominance at the collegiate level by winning the triple jump inside Mike A. Myers stadium. On her final attempt, Geubelle native leapt to a mark of 13.74 meters (45’1.75”) to take over the lead, where she would eventually finish. Her winning mark, although wind-aided, was the third- farthest jump of her career. Francine Simpson was another senior jumper who opened up her final outdoor season on a good note. Like her teammate Geubelle, Simpson waited until her last attempt of the competition to take over the lead. The Chapelton, Jamaica native soared to a mark of 6.62 meters (21-8.75 ft.) on her sixth attempt to outpace UCLA’s Kylie Price by four inches. Simpson’s winning mark made her the NCAA leader and was just two inches from breaking her own personal record. Kansas women swept each of the throwing events at the Emporia Spring Open. In all, Kansas athletes claimed titles in nine events at the meet held inside Fran Welch Stadium. The Jayhawks had several of their All-American throwers in action Saturday as seniors Heather Bergmann and Alena Krechyk and junior Jessica Maroszek took part in the festivities in Emporia. Bergmann waited until her final attempt of the javelin competition to unleash her farthest throw, hitting a mark of 49.88 meters (163’8”) to earn her the easy victory. Krechyk also turned in a winning performance, taking the hammer throw title. The reigning Big 12 hammer throw champion unleashed a top mark of 63.63 meters (208’9”) on her fourth attempt of the competition. In the discus, Maroszek broke the Fran Welch Stadium record in the event. The school record holder only got off three fair throws on the day but her second-attempt mark of 54.23 meters (177’11”) was good enough to earn the victory over freshman teammate Anastasiya Muchkayev. Maroszek’s throw was the third-best of her career and was the fourth-farthest in the NCAA this season. April 6-7, 2013 | Tempe, Ariz. WEEK 11: MESA CLASSIC/SUN ANGEL CLASSIC For the second-consecutive week, junior pole vaulter Natalia Bartnovskaya rewrote the school record books as she and the rest of the Kansas men’s and women’s track & field teams competed at the Sun Angel Classic. Kansas saw NCAA-top 10 performances in five events on the day as it took part in its second meet of the outdoor season. Inside Sun Angel Stadium, Bartnovskaya again moved through the heights with little resistance. Her day nearly came to an end prematurely on two occasions, needing all three attempts to clear two bars, but she was able to get over four heights on her first vaults, which included her career-best and school record leap of 4.41 meters (14’5.5”). Her clearance earned her the victory over a national championship-caliber field while teammate Christen Guenther earned a fourth-place finish with a top bar of 4.21 meters (13’9.75”). Heather Bergmann had a solid outing in her second javelin competition of the year. The senior saved the best for last, hitting a top mark of 52.23 meters (171’4”) on her final attempt of the night. Her mark placed her as the top collegiate finisher and gave her a third-place finish overall. Bergmann’s throw was also just 16 inches from her own school-record mark and puts the two-time All-American fourth in the NCAA rankings. On the track the KU women’s top performance came from the 4x400-meter relay team. All-Americans Denesha Morris, Diamond Dixon, Taylor Washington and Paris Daniels looked to turn in a top time in the quartet’s first outing of the outdoor season. Kansas led from the gun, with each leg padding the team’s lead as the race progressed. The anchor, Daniels, got the baton through the finish in a time of 3:32.26 to beat the runner-up Arkansas team by nearly five seconds. The men’s 4x400-meter relay also featured an exciting finish. The team of Kyle Clemons, Michael Hester, Michael Stigler and Kenneth McCuin held off a pesky Arizona State squad to earn their first win of the 2013 outdoor campaign. KU clocked in with a season-best of 3:05.95, a time that ranked the team eighth in the nation on the year. Kansas’ Jessica Maroszek, Alena Krechyk and Paris Daniels turned in NCAA top-five performances while Jayhawks claimed wins in four other events as the Jayhawks competed at the Mesa Classic a day earlier. Maroszek kicked things off for the Jayhawks early in the day as she participated in a competitive gathering of the discus throw. The junior hit a distance of 55.60 meters (182’5”) on her third throw of the day to post her best mark ever in NCAA competition. The throw was the third farthest in the NCAA on the year and earned Maroszek a fourth-place finish. Krechyk turned in a season-best toss of 66.86 meters (219’4”) to win the event for the second-consecutive week. Her throw was the second-farthest in the nation this year and is No. 2 on KU’s all-time hammer throw list, seven feet behind her own school record mark. John McDonnell Field | April 13, 2013 | Fayetteville, Ark. WEEK 12: JOHN MCDONNELL INVITATIONAL Senior Paris Daniels ran to the third-fastest 200-meter time in the world this year as the Kansas men’s and women’s track & field teams took part in the John McDonnell Invitational in Fayetteville. The No. 1-ranked women finished third in the scored meet while the Jayhawk men claimed a fifth-place team finish. Daniels posted KU’s best individual performance of the evening as she ran away from the rest of the field in the 200 meters. Daniels made sure her first 200-meter race of her final outdoor season would be a memorable one. The senior out of St. Louis was the fastest out of the blocks, racing to a sizeable lead through the first 100 meters. She crossed the finish in a wind-aided time of 22.76 to take the title by nearly half a season. Daniels’ mark was the No. 2 time recorded in the NCAA this year and is the third-fastest in any-wind-condition in the world in 2013. KU’s top performance in the field came in the long jump from Sydney Conley. The Fayetteville native put on a show for her family and friends as she claimed the event title with ease. On her third trip down the runway, Conley soared to a distance of 6.35 meters (20’10”). The wind-legal mark earned Conley her second victory of the outdoor season. No other competitor was able to come within five inches of the freshman’s jump, which is the fourth-best in the NCAA on the season. On the men’s side, sophomore Michael Stigler again turned in two great performances, competing in both the 110-meter and 400-meter hurdles. The Canyon, Texas product began the day in the 110-hurdles and was running alongside the current world-record holder in the event, Aries Merrit. While Merrit went on to take the win, Stigler ran to season-best time of 14.16 and a fourth-place finish. Stigler returned to the track later in the evening to run the 400-meter hurdles. Already boasting the NCAA’s second-fastest time this season at 50.00, Stigler completed his lap just slightly off his season-best pace but was still able to bring home the victory, crossing the finish in 50.26. Stigler now holds the second- and third- fastest 400-meter hurdle times in the NCAA this season. Christen Guenther closed out the night for the Jayhawks by taking the women’s pole vault crown. The senior just needed two clearances on the day to secure the win, her first as a Jayhawk. Guenther’s top bar of 4.12 meters (13’6.25”) was able to edge Arkansas’ Danielle Nowell, who was unable to clear the height. Memorial Stadium | April 17-20, 2013 | Lawrence, Kan. WEEK 13: KANSAS RELAYS Kansas sophomore Michael Stigler proved he is one of the nation’s finest as he hung with many of the top professional competitors taking home second place in the men’s Invitational 400-meter hurdles at the 2013 Kansas Relays. Stigler set a new Kansas record with his personal-best time of 49.42 on the final day of the 86th Kansas Relays. Stigler’s time ranked as the top in the NCAA during the 2013 outdoor season and is currently the fifth- fastest time in the world. He was edged in the event only by 2012 Olympic silver medalist Michael Tinsley, who won the race with a time of 48.77. KU senior Kyle Clemons also had a strong performance for the Jayhawks as he took home the title in the men’s Invitational 400 meters. Clemons turned on the after-burners coming out of the final curve to take the lead and run his season’s-best time of 46.28. The win marked Clemons’ third career Kansas Relays victory in the 400 meters as he won the men’s collegiate titles in 2010 and 2011. His time of 46.28 puts him at No. 10 in the national rankings for this season. Stigler and Clemons anchored the KU men’s 4x400-meter relay team to a win to close out the meet. Junior DeMario Johnson led off for the Jayhawks, followed by sophomore Michael Hester before giving way to Stigler and then Clemons as the quartet edged Nebraska for the win with its time of 3:07.78. Senior Paris Daniels blazed to the women’s 100 meters title, clocking in at 11.55. Daniels ran away with the win, but two of her Jayhawk teammates also placed in the event as freshman Tianna Valentine was the third-place finisher at 11.80 and senior Andrea Geubelle finished sixth with 12.25. KU’s quartet of senior Denesha Morris, junior Diamond Dixon and seniors Taylor Washington and Daniels ran the second fast 4x400-meter relay time in Kansas Relays history in taking the 2013 title with a time of 3:32.94. The Jayhawk women’s 4x100-meter relay team composed of Daniels, freshman Sydney Conley, Valentine and Dixon dominated the field, taking home the title with a time of 45.02. Dixon competed in the women’s Invitational 400 meters later in the day, taking home sixth place with her time of 53.63. It marked the first time this outdoor season that Dixon, a 2012 Olympic gold medalist, competed in her signature event. Morris ran in the collegiate women’s 400 meters, taking home second place with her season’s best time of 54.18. Kansas senior Heather Bergmann claimed the Kansas Relays javelin title for the second-consecutive year. Bergmann took the lead on her first throw of the competition and never looked back. Her winning mark of 49.86 meters (163’7”) was more than eight feet farther than the second-place finisher. Competing in the women’s hammer throw, Alena Krechyk turned in her top mark of the season at 67.34 meters (220’11”) on her way to finishing fourth and was the top collegiate competitor in the field. 1392013 IN REVIEW
  • Hart-Patterson Track & Field Complex | May 3-5, 2013 | Waco, Texas WEEK 14: BIG 12 CHAMPIONSHIPS The University of Kansas women’s track & field team was crowned team champion Sunday at the Big 12 Outdoor Championships. Six individual champions, as well as wins in both the 4x100-meter and 4x400- meter relays, propelled the Jayhawks to the first outdoor team title in program history. The women finished the meet with 158 points, outduelling the reigning Big 12 Outdoor Champion, Texas Longhorns, who tallied 145 team points for the runner-up finish. The Jayhawks’ point total was the most accumulated by a women’s team since Texas amassed 188 points in 2003. With a host of Jayhawks turning in championship performances, it was senior Paris Daniels who stood above the rest as she scored 23 of her team’s final 84 points to help seal the victory. The St. Louis product started the afternoon by running the leadoff leg on the women’s 4x100-meter relay. Daniels, along with freshman Tianna Valentine, senior Denesha Morris and junior Diamond Dixon, ran away from the field down the final 100 meters to take the event crown in 43.89. Daniels then returned for the final of the 100 meters, and settled for a runner-up finish, clocking in at 11.34 and adding eight points to her team’s total. Daniels saved her best individual event for last as repeated as the conference’s 200-meter champion. The win also tallied an additional 10 points in the team standings for the Jayhawks. Having already clinched the team title, Daniels, along with Morris, Dixon and senior Taylor Washington again were able to outduel Texas in the 4x400-meter relay for the second year in a row. The quartet passed the baton around in a season-best 3:32.00 to earn its second-straight Big 12 championship in the event and put an exclamation point on the team title. With Daniels’ 2.5 points in both the relay events, her eight points in the 100 meters and her 10 points in the 200 meters, she was the highest female scorer of the meet, earning her outstanding performer accolades, marking the first time a KU woman has earned the honor. In the women’s triple jump Andrea Geubelle looked to make conference history by becoming just the second woman in Big 12 history to repeat as league champion in both indoor and outdoor triple jumps. The senior hit a distance of 13.59 meters (44’7”) to take the victory. Geubelle joined teammates Francine Simpson (long jump) and Dixon (400m) as Kansas women to defend their individual outdoor conference titles. Perhaps the most clutch individual title of the day came in the women’s discus when junior Jessica Maroszek turned in the best performance of her career. On her third attempt, Maroszek unleashed a throw of 56.81 meters (52’1.75”), which not only tallied a new personal best, but also smashed her own school record in the event. Sophomore Lindsay Vollmer validated her indoor pentathlon title by claiming the heptathlon championship in runaway fashion. With personal bests in four of the first six events and the victory in tow, Vollmer cruised to a time of 2:38.55 in the 800 meters to claim her final 590 points of the day and her first conference championship in the event. Her final score of 5,644 points marked a new personal best and moved her up to No. 7 in NCAA rankings. May 11, 2013 | Manhattan, Kan./Atlanta, Ga. WEEK 15: WARD HYLETT INV/GEORGIA TECH INV Nine members of the Kansas men’s and women’s track & field teams recorded new career bests as the Jayhawks concluded the regular season at the Ward Haylett Invitational hosted by Kansas State University. Two members of the No. 1-ranked KU women’s team broke school records as several more improved their individual NCAA standing. Natalia Bartnovskaya posted a school record pole vault performance for the third time in five appearances this outdoor season, while also taking down the facility and meet records in the process. The junior cleared a top bar of 4.45 meters (14’7.25”) on her second attempt at the height to again rewrite the KU record books. Her clearance vaulted her among the NCAA’s all-time performers as she cleared the 11th-highest bar in collegiate history. Another school record was rewritten Saturday, however it was by the lone Jayhawk competing at a meet other than the Ward Haylett. Senior Andrea Geubelle was never challenged in the triple jump after she took down her own school record on her first attempt of the day. Geubelle leaped to a distance of 13.85 meters (45’5.25”) to clip her former record mark by less than half an inch. The jump went on to earn Geubelle her 16th triple jump victory in her last 17 competitions versus collegians and padded her national lead by nearly four inches. Back in Manhattan, a host of Jayhawks saw their own personal records fall inside the R.V. Christian Track Complex. A week after Paris Daniels was named the National Athlete of the Week, she posted another NCAA top-20 time. In her first 400-meter race of the season, the senior rounded the track in 52.61 to take the easy victory. Her career-best time is the 14th-fastest 400 meters in the NCAA this year and marked the third event which the St. Louis native’s time was ranked among the top-20. The men’s high jump was a memorable one for the Jayhawk duo entered in the event. Junior Nick Giancana and sophomore Austin Hoag each had notable days after career-high clearances. Giancana soared to a height not many KU men have reached in recent years. The Topeka, Kan., native soared over the 2.17 meter (7’1.5”) bar on his second attempt at height to claim a runner-up finish. Giancana’s mark is the best by a Jayhawk since 1994, and was just half an inch from moving him into the school’s all-time top-five performers list. Hoag posted a top clearance of 2.07 meters (6’9.5”) to take third in the event. It was another successful day for the KU throwers as two Jayhawks notched season-bests. Alena Krechyk notched a top mark of 68.15 meters (223’7”) on her fourth attempt of the hammer throw, her farthest throw of the year. The senior’s heave, which moved her up to No. 3 in the NCAA standings, broke the meet record and was the third time Krechyk has broken the 220-foot barrier on the year. Jonathan Miller hit a personal best in the discus for the second week in a row. The sophomore out of Tribune, Kan., launched the implement to a distance of 55.92 meters (183’5”) to earn his second victory of the season. Mike A. Myers Stadium | May 24-26, 2013 | Austin, Texas MEET 16: NCAA WEST PRELIMINARY Kansas track & field had a strong competition at the 2013 NCAA West Preliminary as a total of 20 entries (13 women, 7 men moved on to the National Championships. After already claiming a spot in the NCAA long jump final earlier this week, senior Andrea Geubelle returned to the Mike A. Myers runway to try and duplicate that feat in the triple jump. The 10-time All- American didn’t waste any time, leaping to a mark of 13.76 meters (45’1.75”) on her first attempt of the day. She was not able to leap any further but the mark was more than enough to qualify her for the national final in Oregon. Another KU senior turned in a qualifying-worth performance as Paris Daniels advanced in the 200 meters. The St. Louis native ran to the second-fastest qualifying time and won her heat in 22.93, the No. 6 wind- legal time in school history. Heather Bergmann continued to write an impressive final chapter of her Kansas career as she paved the way to her third-consecutive NCAA javelin final. The senior posted three throws over 160 feet in the Saturday night prelim, including her top mark which measured to 49.82 meters (163’5”). A pair of career bests propelled the Jayhawk duo competing in the men’s pole vault through to the national meet. Junior Alex Bishop and sophomore Casey Bowen vaulted themselves into the top-12 of the final standings to each advance to Nationals. Both Bishop and Bowen cleared a top bar of 5.40 meters (17’8.5”) to erase their previous personal bests by several inches. KU’s 4x100-meter relay set the tone for a successful meet for the Jayhawk women. Daniels, Tianna Valentine, Denesha Morris and Diamond Dixon finished the quarter-mile race in 43.56 to notch the fastest qualifying time out of the West Region. The quartet’s time was not only a school record, but the fourth- best in the NCAA on the season and earned the team a trip to the NCAA Championships, a first for the Kansas women. To conclude the meet the men’s and women’s 4x400-meter relays took center stage. Leading off was the KU women’s team of Morris, Dixon, Taylor Washington and Daniels. Running in one of the more competitive heats, the Jayhawks passed the baton around in 3:31.77 to take second in their quarterfinal heat. The Jayhawk men, who also had to traverse through the fastest of the three quarterfinal heats, managed to stake their names among those who qualified for Eugene. DeMario Johnson, Kyle Clemons, Michael Hester and Michael Stigler completed the mile race in 3:04.93, their fastest of the season and the No. 4 qualifying time out of the West Region. The Kansas men’s track & field team saw four individual conference titles claimed by Jayhawks as the team amassed 82.5 points to claim a fifth-place finish in the team standings, its highest finish at the league meet since placing fourth in 2005. Jesse Vaughn started off the day strong for the Jayhawks as he etched his name into the storied history of Kansas javelin throwers. Vaughn shot to the top of the leaderboard on his first throw of the day, a heave of 67.78 meters (222’4”). Vaughn closed out the competition with a winning mark of 67.86 meters (222’8”) to earn his first conference championship. Senior Kyle Clemons also turned in the performance of his career has he raced to his first league championship. Clemons completed the quarter-mile race in a school record 45.10 to win the event and outpace the field by nearly half a second. Michael Stigler backed up his 2012 Big 12 400-meter hurdle title with another at this year’s league meet. The Canyon, Texas native crossed the finish in 49.79, earning his second outdoor title in the event and becoming the first KU male to repeat as conference champion in a track event since Anthony Coleman won back-to-back 110-meter hurdle titles in 1978 and 1979. Clemons and Stigler returned to the track later in the evening to try and earn Kansas its first conference win in a relay since the Jayhawks won the 440-yard relay in 1979. Joined by sophomore DeMario Johnson and freshman Kenneth McCuin, the four combined to make program history in the event. The anchor, McCuin, held off strong charges from TCU and Kansas State down the final 200 meters as he crossed the finish in 3:07.72 to take gold. 2014 KANSAS TRACK & FIELD140

The 2013 University of Kansas women’s track & field team was crowned as the NCAA Champion at the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships inside historic Hayward Field. The title is the first in the women’s program’s history and first for the KU track program since the men’s team won the 1970 outdoor championship. In all, 11 of the Jayhawks’ 13 entries in the meet contributed to the team’s scoring effort, with senior Andrea Geubelle leading the way with her 16 points in runner- up performances in both the long jump and triple jump. The Jayhawks saw 11 athletes earn first team All-America honors as well as both relay teams, with an additional two claiming second team honors. The Jayhawks also saw the program’s first individual outdoor champion as Lindsay Vollmer took gold in the heptathlon. Vollmer made Kansas track & field history Friday as she became the first Jayhawk female to earn an individual outdoor title, claiming the NCAA heptathlon title. She entered the second day of heptathlon competition sitting in third place in the point standings, but used three career bests in the final three events to propel herself to the event title. With optimal weather conditions inside historic Hayward Field, Vollmer put the finishing touches on one of the top heptathlon performances in NCAA Championship history. After amassing a total of 3,569 points on day one, she began her second day with a top leap in the long jump of 6.16 meters (20’2.5”), to down her previous best by nearly four inches and add 899 points to her total. In the heptathlon’s sixth event, the javelin, Vollmer again wowed the Hayward Field crowd with a heave of 46.18 meters (151’6”) on her third and final attempt. She bested the rest of the heptathlon field by nearly five feet in the event and moved into the overall lead with one obstacle remaining, the 800 meters. In the 800 meters, Vollmer again posted an enormous personal best, completing the two laps in 2:19.36. The time earned her the final 832 points of the competition and was just enough to outpace Arkansas’ Makeba Alcide in the final standings by 36 points. Vollmer’s final score of 6,086 made her the No. 10 performer in NCAA history and was the ninth time in NCAA Championship history a female had broken the 6,000-point barrier. She beat or tied her former lifetime bests in six of the seven events to down her previous heptathlon personal record by more than 400 points. She also erased Candace Mason’s 1999 school record of 5,674 points. Geubelle returned to the Hayward Field runway after posting a silver-medal performance in the long jump earlier in the week and had high hopes in snagging the top podium spot in the triple jump. The senior started the day well with a leap of 13.63 meters (44’8.75”) on her first attempt. The mark moved her up to second place, where she remained as she entered the finals. The 11-time All- American could not improve on her opening-round mark with her final three jumps, falling to eventual winner Shanieka Thomas of San Diego State. Her runner-up finish was the best ever by a Kansas female in the event and gave her the fourth first team All-America honor in the triple jump of her heralded collegiate career. The women’s 4x100-meter relay got the Jayhawks started strong in the first race of the day. The quartet of Paris Daniels, Tianna Valentine, Denesha Morris and Diamond Dixon posted the fifth-fastest qualifying time in Wednesday’s semifinal and returned to Hayward Field Saturday trying for a similar result in the final. Bartnovskaya again proved her mettle in the pole vault as she cleared her first four bars without a foul. The event came down to the Jayhawk and two other competitors, each trying to clear 4.45 meters (14’7.25”), which only South Dakota’s Bethany Buell was able to accomplish. Bartnovskaya managed to salvage the second-place finish and achieve first team All-America status for the first time in her NCAA Division I career. Her day’s top clearance of 4.40 meters (14’5.25”) now gives her the top-three heights in school history and added eight points to Kansas’ team total. Junior Jessica Maroszek turned in a fourth-place finish in the discus on day two of the NCAA Outdoor Championships. The junior posted only two legal throws on the day but made them count as both were over 180 feet. Maroszek’s first mark, a toss of 54.98 meters (180’4”) quickly moved her up to second in the overall standings. She then unwound for the second-farthest mark of her career, a throw that measured out to 55.78 meters (183’0”), which cemented her spot in second. She was unable to post a fair throw on her final three attempts, but her third round mark was enough to earn her a fourth-place finish in the event and an additional five points to her team’s total. 1412013 IN REVIEW

Krechyk was only able to get two fair marks in, but made it count on her third trip into the throws ring. The senior out of Grodno, Belarus unwound for a mark of 68.22 meters (223’10”) to take the overall lead as she and eight of the NCAA’s top hammer throwers headed into the finals. The toss was the second farthest of Krechyk’s career and was the sixth time this season she surpassed the 220- foot mark. Her third round throw was enough to earn her a third-place finish and six points to the KU women’s team total. Heather Bergmann also ended her illustrious Kansas career on a high note, but waited until the very last throw of the day to do it. She unleashed the best javelin throw of her career on her sixth and final attempt. The spear hit a mark of 52.67 meters (172’9”) to not only break her own school record, but move her up to sixth-place overall, where she would eventually finish. Bergmann’s record throw earned her first team All-America honors for the third-consecutive season and gave the Kansas women their final three points of the meet’s opening day. On the meet’s final day, the women’s 4x100-meter relay got the Jayhawks started strong. The quartet of Paris Daniels, Tianna Valentine, Denesha Morris and Diamond Dixon passed the baton around in near-flawless fashion with the anchor, Dixon, crossing the finish in 44.92 to take fifth in the event. Daniels then returned to the track looking to earn first team All-America honors in the 200 meters for the second-straight year. She made up two spots down the final 50 meters to snag the fourth-place finish in a wind-aided time of 22.52. Her finish not only garnered her team five more points, but clinched Kansas’ victory in the team championship. An hour later, the Jayhawks put the finishing touches on the team title when the 4x400-meter relay team tacked on Kansas’ final three points of the meet. For the third time in a two-hour span, Daniels made her way onto the track as the relay team’s anchor leg. She was joined by Morris, Dixon and Taylor Washington, each of whom boast multiple first team All-America honors in the event. The squad completed all four legs in 3:32.74, finishing sixth in the event and notching the highest finish ever for a Jayhawk 4x400-meter relay at the NCAA Championships. The women’s title was the 11th in Kansas Athletics history and the seventh for the Kansas track & field program (three men’s outdoor, three men’s indoor, one women’s outdoor). On the men’s side, sophomore Michael Stigler turned in the best-performance ever by a Kansas 400-meter hurdler, posting a new personal best and school record en route to a runner-up finish in the event final. The Canyon, Texas native held his own in a race in which he was the youngest competitor. Stigler was in a close battle for second as he rounded the final curve, but used his signature strong closing kick to pull away from the field and take the second-place finish easily in a career-best and school record 49.19. Stigler, who earned first team All-America honors in the event for the second-straight year, ran to the highest NCAA finish by a Jayhawk in the 400-meter hurdles and the best since Cliff Cushman won the 440-yard hurdles in 1960. The KU women finished the meet with 60 points, 16 points ahead of second-place Texas A&M. The Jayhawk men ended the week in a tie for 28th after amassing eight points. 2014 KANSAS TRACK & FIELD142
  • USATF OUTDOOR CHAMPIONSHIPS KU senior Andrea Geubelle claimed victory in the triple jump at the USA Track & Field Championships inside Drake Stadium in Des Moines. In all, Kansas track & field saw its athletes finish in the top-eight in four events at the USA Championships. Geubelle never trailed in the event and moved to the top of the leaderboard with her first attempt of the day, a jump of 13.72 meters (45’0.25”). The University Place, Wash., native added six inches to her lead on her third trip down the runway as she flew to a mark of 13.87 meters (45’6.25”) and headed into the final three rounds of jumps with a comfortable lead over the field. Geubelle’s fourth jump was her best as she broke the 46-foot mark for the first time this outdoor season. The 12-time All-American measured in at a wind-aided 14.03 meters (46’0.5”), the third-farthest any-condition mark of her career. Junior Jessica Maroszek notched a seventh-place finish with another school record performance in the discus on the fourth and final day of competition. Maroszek, who notched a fourth-place discus finish at the NCAA Championships earlier in the year, again started her competition on a high note. The Seymour, Wis., native unleashed a new personal-best mark of 58.01 meters (190’4”) on her first attempt of the afternoon. The mark overtook Maroszek’s previous school record by four feet and rewrote the school discus books for the third time this season. It also put her in the lead after the first of two flights of competition. After advancing to the final rounds of throws, Maroszek was unable to improve on her first attempt mark, which was good enough to garner the junior a seventh-place finish in the event. Paris Daniels suited up in the Crimson and Blue for the final time as she competed in the semifinals of the 200 meters. The senior out of St. Louis posted the 11th- fastest time in the preliminary round Saturday, clocking in at a wind-aided 22.59 to advance to the 16-woman semifinal. In the second of two semifinal heats Sunday afternoon, Daniels sped through the finish to take sixth in her heat. Her time of 23.13 was 12th overall and was just .25 seconds off from earning her a spot in the event final. Drake Stadium | June 19-23, 2013 | Des Moines, Iowa U.S. OUTDOOR CHAMPIONSHIPS In what was likely her final competition in a Kansas uniform, Andrea Geubelle again proved her status as one of the top jumpers in the nation as she claimed a seventh-place finish in the long jump. Another outgoing Kansas senior, Heather Bergmann, turned in a notable performance in the javelin. Bergmann, a three-time first team All-American in the event, notched a top throw of 50.03 meters (164’1”) on her third and final attempt of the preliminary round of throws. The mark moved her from 12th overall to eighth and secured three more throws for the Concordia, Kan., native. Eighth was as high as Bergmann could climb, unable to improve on her third attempt mark. She concluded her KU career as the owner of seven of the top-10 javelin marks in school history. Freshman Tianna Valentine took part in the junior section of the 100-meter dash earlier in the week. After running to the eighth-fastest qualifying time in the semifinals by clocking in at 12.06, Valentine returned to the track for the event final two hours later, vying for a spot on Team USA’s Pan Am Junior team with a top-two finish. Valentine, who was a member of KU’s All-American 4x100-meter relay team, crossed the finish line in 12.09 in the final, good enough for an eighth-place finish. On the men’s side, Michael Stigler ran in the first round of the 400-meter hurdles and managed to turn in the ninth-fastest qualifying time with his mark of 51.04, finishing fourth in his heat. In the semifinal, the two- time reigning Big 12 Champion managed to take the 15th overall with a time of 51.94. Kyle Clemons also saw preliminary action Thursday afternoon in Des Moines as he competed in the first round of the 400 meters. The senior took fourth in his heat and was just .4 seconds from earning the automatic pass to the semifinal round. His time of 46.56 was also not enough to extend the Rowlett, Texas native’s weekend, as it placed him 22nd overall.

  • HISTORY Twenty-fourteen marks the 50-year anniversary of Jim Ryun’s historic race that made him the first high schooler to run a sub-4 minute mile. On June 5, 1964, the 17-year-old out of Wichita East High School clocked in at 3:59.0 to leap into the world spotlight, where he would remain for the next 25 years of his running career, both at Kansas and professionally. RYUN’S 50TH ANNIVERSARY
  • Since its inception, the University of Kansas track & field program has been represented by a litany of hall of fame coaches and innovators. Figures such as Bill Easton, Bob Timmons and Stanley Redwine have played pivotal roles in guiding their student-athletes to numerous honors and accolades. Beginning with Fay Moulton, who participated in the 1904 St. Louis Olympics, the Jayhawk track & field program has produced its share of Olympians, All-Americans and conference champions. That legacy continued under the tenures of Brutus Hamilton, Easton, Timmons and Gary Schwartz, individuals who each added memorable moments and accomplishments to the lore of Kansas track & field. Entering his 14th season, Redwine and his assembly of coaches have ushered a new era into the program’s storied history. Through the guidance of Redwine and his staff, the Jayhawks continue to make strides in improving the overall strength of the program. The men’s indoor track team finished eighth at both the 2001 and 2002 NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships, earning places in the Kansas Athletics Hall of Fame along with Coach Redwine. Also during Redwine’s tenure, over 50 KU student-athletes have earned more than 100 All-America awards while rewriting the school-record books over 60 times. Since 2008, Redwine has sent over 100 qualifiers to the NCAA Outdoor Championships, which averages out to over 10 qualifiers each season. In 2013 the KU women made history by claiming the program’s first national title. The names and faces have changed throughout the years, but the tradition of Kansas track & field remains as strong as any program in the nation. EARLY COACHES In 1901, the KU track & field program began under the direction of Dr. James Naismith, the inventor of basketball. After W.O. Hamilton was handed the reins by J.P. Hagerman in 1907, Hamilton led the squad to its first Missouri Valley Conference championship in 1910. Karl Schlademan took control of the program in 1919 and developed the first Jayhawk All-American and NCAA champion. In 1923, Tom Poor won the NCAA high jump and eventually placed fourth in the 1924 Paris Olympics. The Jayhawks nailed down two more Missouri Valley titles in 1927 and 1928 under the direction of Dr. H.J. Huff, who followed Schlademan, coaching the Jayhawks from 1927-29. In the early 1930s, Kansas track great Glenn Cunningham and three-sport letterman “Jarrin’ Jim” Bausch helped lead two Jayhawk teams to conference championships. Brutus Hamilton, one of two head coaches from Kansas in the National Track & Field Hall of Fame, came to Mount Oread in 1930 and led Kansas to two Big Six Outdoor Championships in 1930 and 1931. Bill Hargiss then took over the program and coached KU to the 1934 indoor and outdoor Big Six Championships. Hargiss coached KU’s first great shot putter, All-American Elwyn Dees, who was the 1935 NCAA champion. KU’s program leveled off in the war years until 1948 when Kansas hired Bill Easton, former director of the Drake Relays. The Easton era began with distance runner Wes Santee’s success at the 1953 NCAA cross country meet, included the NCAA team championship, and ended with the Olympic performances of Billy Mills and Al Oerter in the 1960s. During his 17-year career, Easton’s cross country and track teams combined to win 38 conference titles and won at least one conference title each year. He was only the second collegiate coach to lead his track and cross country teams to a national championship, doing so with cross country in 1953 and track during the 1959 and 1960 seasons. Before he left in 1965, Easton’s track teams had accumulated 41-consecutive dual-meet victories. In all, Easton coached a total of 54 All-Americans and 22 national champions, including 18 champions and 38 All-Americans in track. Easton passed away in October of 1997 at the age of 93. He is still missed greatly today by those associated with the Kansas track & field family. After Easton departed in 1965, KU’s track program was placed in the hands of Bob Timmons. “Timmie’s” teams captured 13 Big Eight indoor titles and 14 outdoor titles. He led the Jayhawks to three NCAA indoor championships in 1966, 1969 and 1970. Timmons’ 1970 outdoor team tied for the national championship with Oregon, BYU and Drake to give him four titles in five years. Timmons’ coaching career included teaching one of the world’s best track athletes in Jim Ryun. Recruited to Kansas by Timmons, his former high school coach, Ryun set world marks in the 1,500 meters, the mile and the 800 meters while wearing the pink and blue. Even though Timmons handed the reins of the KU track program to then-head coach Gary Schwartz in 1988, he still had close ties to the team. In addition to being a loyal supporter at Jayhawk home meets, Timmons also created Rim Rock Farm, Kansas’ cross country course, site of the 1998 NCAA Divisions I and II Cross Country Championships, and home to the 2006 Big 12 Cross Country Championships. Timmons donated the course to KU in 2005, where a home meet bearing his name (Bob Timmons Classic) is run every year. THE EARLY YEARS In addition to the great accomplishments of Jim Ryun, many other Kansas track & field athletes have distinguished themselves internationally. Starting with Moulton in 1904, 28 athletes have represented KU in the Olympic Games. Of those athletes, 10 set world records in their events. Jim Bausch, who lettered in football, basketball and track, was one of the first greats to run track at Kansas. “Jarrin’ Jim,” considered by some to be the best athlete in KU’s history, participated in track from 1929 to 1932. He broke the decathlon world record by scoring 8,462 points at the 1932 Los Angeles Olympics. That same year, Bausch received the Sullivan Award as the best amateur athlete in America. In addition to track, he was also a tremendous talent in football, being inducted into the National Football Hall of Fame in 1954. In the mid-1930s, Kansas saw the emergence of another soon-to-be world record holder in Glenn Cunningham. After surviving severe burns during a fire as a child, he helped the Jayhawks to Big Six Conference championships in 1931 and 1934. In 1934, he set the world record for both the indoor and outdoor mile. Cunningham ran a 4:08.4 at the Knights of Columbus Games in New York to break the indoor record. His outdoor record was a time of 4:06.7. While he finished fourth in the 1,500 meters at the 1932 Olympics, Cunningham garnered the silver medal at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin. Between those two events, Cunningham established a world record in the 1,500 meters. In 1934, at an AAU meet in New York, he ran the event in a time of 3:53.3, beating the previous record of 3:55.4. In addition to his world records and Olympic performances, Cunningham received the Sullivan Award in 1933. In 1974, he became one of the first inductees of the National Track & Field Hall of Fame. 1901 KANSAS TRACK TEAM BOB TIMMONS BILL EASTONBRUTUS HAMILTON 2014 KANSAS TRACK & FIELD156
  • THE POST-WAR YEARS During the 1940s, World War II was taking its toll on America’s youth reserves, but by 1950 Kansas had another outstanding talent on the squad. Born and raised in Ashland, Kan., Wes Santee excelled in distance events and cross country running. Santee broke the indoor mile record in 1954 with a time of 4:04.9. He broke his own record the next year with a time of 4:03.8. In the Big Seven Conference, Santee collected three indoor and outdoor records, plus two cross country titles. The mid-1950s saw Kansas enjoying its finest days in the track world. The Jayhawks won eight consecutive indoor and outdoor conference titles (1952-59). Santee led the 1953 cross country team to its first and only NCAA championship. One of the forces on those dominant Jayhawk teams was a discus thrower from Hyde Park, N.Y. Al Oerter’s career included two NCAA championship titles (1957-58), four Olympic gold medals in four different Olympiads (1956, 1960, 1964 and 1968) and four world records in the discus. Oerter’s best throw came in 1964 at the Mount San Antonio Relays in Walnut, Calif. He moved past his old record of 205-0.5 with a throw measuring 206-6 ft. In addition to Oerter, KU had a premier shot put thrower in the late ‘50s. After capturing the silver medal at the 1956 Olympics in Melbourne, Australia, Bill Nieder went on to take the gold in Rome at the 1960 Olympics. In addition to being the 1955 NCAA champion, Nieder was the first collegiate shot putter to surpass the 60-foot barrier. He broke the world record in 1960 with a throw of 65-7. BACK-TO-BACK TITLES In 1959 and 1960, Kansas extended its dominance over other track programs as it won back-to-back national outdoor championships. The squads were led by four outstanding athletes. Distance expert Billy Mills was the Big Eight cross country champion in 1960 and later took the gold medal in the 10,000 meters at the 1964 Olympics. In a dramatic race, Mills came from behind on the last lap to win. Mills also broke a world record in the six-mile run. Bill Alley was also a part of those national championship teams. The javelin thrower won the NCAA crown in 1959 and 1960. He broke an American throwing record in 1960 at 273-10.5 ft. Alley traveled to Rome in 1960 for the Olympics, but did not qualify for the finals. In the latter part of the 1960s, a new star emerged at KU. Little did Jayhawk fans know that Jim Ryun would become one of the most prolific track figures in history. In 1964, at the age of 17, Ryun became the first high schooler to run a sub- four-minute mile. In fact, his high school mile mark of 3:55.3 stood for 31 years. Later in his collegiate career, he would shatter that record and many others. In his spectacular stint at KU from 1965 to 1969, Ryun owned world records in the 880, 1,500, mile and two-mile runs. Outdoors, he established new marks in the 880 yards, 1,500 meters, mile, two-mile, three-mile and the 5,000 meters. At the NCAA Championships, he captured five titles (four indoor, one outdoor). To this day, he still holds 11 Jayhawk school records. Ryun, who was named Sports Illustrated’s Sportsman of the Year in 1966, was a three-time Olympian. During the same year, the Wichita, Kan., native was named the winner of the AAU Sullivan Award for the top-amateur athlete in America. He won the silver medal at the 1968 Olympic Games in the 1,500 meters. In 1972, he was tripped up in the 1,500 and did not qualify for the finals. A winner of three U.S. titles in the mile, Ryun was inducted into the National Track and Field Hall of Fame in 1982. A six-time All-American, sprinter Charlie Tidwell captured four NCAA titles during the two-year span. After winning the 220-yard hurdles title in 1958, Tidwell went on to take the 100-yard dash and the 200-yard hurdles in 1959 and win the 100 and 200 meter crowns the following year. During his career at KU, he set four new world records in the 100-meter dash (10.1), 100-yard dash (9.3), 200-meter low hurdles (22.6) and the 200-yard low hurdles (22.7). Joining Alley and Mills during those championship years was a hurdler named Cliff Cushman. Cushman’s performance in the 400-meter hurdles at the 1960 Rome Olympic Games earned him a silver medal. He also garnered two All-America awards in the same event in 1959 and 1960. THE JIM RYUN ERA AL OERTER 1959 NCAA CHAMPIONS 1960 NCAA CHAMPIONS 157HISTORY
  • THE MODERN ERA Other Jayhawks stood out during the end of Jim Ryun’s career at Kansas. Gary Ard earned his place in the KU Hall of Fame by capturing three All-America awards in the long jump between 1966 and 1967. He also teamed up with Ben Olison, Dwight Peck and Ryun to break the world sprint medley relay record at the 1967 Texas Relays with a time of 3:15.2. In 1969, Kansas finished first at the NCAA indoor meet and second at the outdoor finals. That team earned a staggering 21 All-America awards between the two relay events. In 1970, Kansas topped its team achievement from the year before by sweeping both the Big Eight and NCAA indoor and outdoor national championship team titles. The Jayhawks were led by a remarkable throwing trio known affectionately as “The Pachyderms” for their physical prowess. Karl Salb, Steve Wilhelm and Doug Knop finished 1-2-3 in the shot put at the 1969 and 1970 NCAA Championships, earning All-America honors in the process. The following year, Kansas completed the Big Eight sweep for the fifth-straight year. In the last quarter of the century, Cliff Wiley was a member of the quartet that broke the world record in the 400-meter relay in 1977. He later was named to the 1980 U.S. Olympic Team. Deon Hogan excelled in the 400-yard dash, as he established a new world record of 46.77 in 1981. Kansas also made its mark in distance running. Craig Watcke was an All-American in the 5,000 and 10,000 meters and was voted the most valuable performer of the 1989 Big Eight Indoor Championships. In addition, Michael Cox captured All-America honors in the mile and the 1,500 meters as well as in cross country. For a time, the jumping events became KU’s most successful area. From the 1979 season through the 1990s, KU produced 31 men’s All-Americans in the pole vault, high jump, long jump, triple jump, heptathlon and decathlon events. Much of the credit went to vertical jumps coach Rick Attig, who coached at Kansas from 1985 through 2000. KU Hall of Famer Jeff Buckingham began the tradition in 1979 by finishing second in the pole vault at the NCAA indoor meet. Buckingham went on to earn three more All-America awards during his career. In 1980, Sonya Owolabi won the NCAA indoor title in the triple jump and finished his outstanding career as a three-time All-American. After Warren Wilhoite finished second and fourth in the long jump during the 1982 and 1983 NCAA indoor seasons, Chris Bohanan and Scott Huffman finished third and fourth, respectively, in the 1986 NCAA indoor pole vault finals. Huffman added a second-place finish in the 1988 event and went on to bigger and better things. In 1993, Huffman won the U.S. Track & Field National Championships and placed fifth at the world championships. A former American pole vault record holder, Huffman joined former Jayhawk sprinter Pierre Lisk (Sierra Leone) at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta. At the end of Huffman’s college career, two vaulters stepped in as KU’s leaders. Pat Manson and Cam Miller combined for nine All-America awards from 1987-91. Manson’s leap of 18-8 at the 1989 Big Eight Indoor Championships remains the KU record today. During that season, Manson, Miller and teammate Cedric Fullard averaged a combined height of 18-5 to rank as the best collegiate pole vault trio ever. Another vaulter who saw success at Kansas was two-time indoor All-American John Bazzoni. In 1995, he took honors in both the indoor and outdoor Big Eight pole vaulting championships. Earning All-America honors with Bazzoni in 1995 was high jumper Nick Johannsen. In 2002, KU vaulter Vadim Gvozdetskiy earned All-America honors in the pole vault, while former KU vaulter Jordan Scott was was a national champion in 2010 and a seven-time Big 12 Champion in the event. On the women’s side, 13 KU jumpers have taken home All-America awards since 1979. Charmane Kuhlman became the first women’s All-American in 1977, finishing second in the long jump at the NCAA Championships. Shawn Corwin was a four- time recipient in the high jump, earning a pair of runner-up finishes in 1978. Halcyon “Tudie” McKnight earned All-America honors in the long jump three times from 1982-83. The Kansas Relays’ long jump event was renamed the “Halcyon ‘Tudie’ McKnight-Blake Women’s Long Jump” in 1995 to honor McKnight’s accomplishments as a Kansas long jumper. She still owns the Kansas Relays and Memorial Stadium long jump records. Ann O’Connor was named All-America in both the high jump and the heptathlon during her career from 1984-88, while Candace Mason and Andrea Branson were named All-Americans in the NCAA’s inaugural women’s pole vault competition in 1998. In the 2001 season, Branson was awarded All-America status at the indoor championships while Mason would join her in the outdoor championships. More recently, Amy Linnen, Kate Sultanova and Natalia Bartnovskaya brought much success to the pole vault for the Jayhawks in the last decade. In addition to both being named All-Americans in the event, Linnen and Bartnovskaya claimed indoor NCAA championships in 2005 and 2013, respectively. Over the last four seasons Andrea Geubelle raised the bar in the women’s triple jump and long jump. She collected three NCAA titles in the events over her heralded career in Lawrence and rewrote the school record books in the event.

  • While the men are entering their 114th year of competition, the women are youthful in comparison. KU women’s track is in only its 40th year as an organized program, having started in 1973. In some ways, the women’s program started out in similar fashion to the men: both programs had no formal guidance in their formative years, and both were led by coaches who gained more notoriety in other sports. Under the direction of former KU women’s basketball coach Marian Washington, the women’s track program was born in 1973. In addition to coaching basketball and track, she also served as the women’s athletics director. Teri Anderson became the fourth women’s coach in 1977. With Anderson at the helm, the KU women reached the Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (AIAW) national championship for the first time. The team also took second at the 1978 Big Eight indoor meet. In 1980, the women were second at both the indoor and outdoor conference championships. Sheila Calmese was one of the first outstanding track & field performers for the women at KU. In 1978, Calmese placed first in the 300-yard dash and second in the 60-yard dash at the AIAW Indoor Championships. That same year, she added a third- place finish at the AIAW Outdoor Championships in the 100 meters. She was the first three-time All- American in Kansas women’s track history. Calmese is still second all-time in the 100-meter dash in the Kansas outdoor record book. Kansas was also paced in the early years by All- American Charmane Kuhlman. Kuhlman finished second in the long jump at the 1978 AIAW Indoor Championships. A third standout in the early years was Kansas City, Mo., native Shawn Corwin. Corwin was an All- American high jumper in both 1978 and 1979. In 1981, Anderson was replaced by Carla Coffey. Coffey took Kansas to seven national championship meets. Her 1984 indoor team tied for 20th at the NCAA finals. Until recently, the highest the Jayhawks ever placed was in 1979 when they took third at the AIAW indoor meet. Under Coffey, Kansas became a national name in the throwing events. In 1984 and 1985, Stine Lerdahl was the Big Eight indoor champion in the shot put. In both those years, she gained All-America status when she placed sixth at the NCAA Indoor Championships. Anne Grethe Baeraas was the first woman at KU to be named an All-American in the javelin during the 1984 season. Denise Buchanan capped a brilliant career at Kansas by being named All-America in the shot put during both the indoor and outdoor season in 1987. She finished fifth at the NCAA Indoor Championships with a toss of 53-4.25, a school record. In fact, Buchanan broke both the indoor and outdoor shot put records at the NCAA finals. Ann O’Connor, a Salina, Kan., native, became an All-American her freshman year in the high jump in 1984. She set the indoor and outdoor record in the high jump while at KU as well as the pentathlon record. In setting her marks in the high jump, O’Connor became the first woman in Kansas track history to clear the 6-0 mark. GARY SCHWARTZ A 12-year coaching stint filled with numerous championships, All-Americans and fond memories brought exciting times for Kansas track & field fans both near and far. Former head track & field coach Gary Schwartz began his career at Kansas not as a coach, but as an athlete. Schwartz was a Big Eight Conference champion in the discus his junior year and a team co-captain his senior year. In all, the Schwartz era produced 41 All-Americans, 48 NCAA and AIAW appearances and several Olympic notables such as Pierre Lisk. Schwartz was added to the Kansas Hall of Fame in 1989 after leading Kansas to a fourth-place finish at the NCAA Championships and working with the USA Track & Field coaching staff at the 1999 World Outdoor Championships. A past president of the United States Track Coaches Association, Schwartz was respected by his peers and athletes both as a great coach and teacher of Kansas track & field, who always had his student-athletes’ best interests at heart. Under Schwartz, Mary Beth Labosky continued KU’s high jump success when she went on to finish sixth at the NCAA Outdoor Championships in 1992. Joining Labosky as an All- American was javelin thrower Heather Berlin, who placed fourth. Cathy Palacios also left behind a legacy at Kansas in 1992 that surely will be tough to match. Palacios broke four separate school records and earned All-America honors in the indoor mile. The 1992 and 1993 seasons also brought the Kansas women’s program back into the conference spotlight. KU placed second at the conference indoor meet in 1992, its highest finish in 13 years, and in 1993 placed second in the outdoor meet, its highest finish ever at the competition. In 1994, Kansas tied for second at the Big Eight indoor championships. Middle distance runner Kristi Kloster earned All-America honors in the 800 meters at the NCAA indoor meet that year, breaking the school record in the process. After battling through an injury-filled career, Kloster topped her 1994 performance two years later when she won the 800 meters at the 1996 NCAA indoor championships. After winning by .004 seconds in a spectacular photo finish, Kloster became KU’s first women’s NCAA track champion and joined Sheila Calmese as the only women to win a national track & field title for Kansas up to that point. Kloster added a third All-America award in the same meet when she ran a leg of the seventh-place distance medley relay team with seniors Melissa Swartz and Kerri Woolheater and junior Latanya Holloway. Swartz picked up an individual All-America award of her own when she placed fifth in the mile. As a result, the KU women finished 15th in the championships, the Jayhawks’ best finish since the 1979 team, which finished third, until 2012. In 1998, Candace Mason became just the third Kansas woman to earn three All-American distinctions when she finished in the top eight in both the pole vault and pentathlon competitions. She also broke the Big 12 and Kansas records in the pole vault, pentathlon and heptathlon. Mason took home two more All-America titles, giving her five total in her illustrious career, the most by any Jayhawk in team history up to that point. In all, Mason would earn three All-America awards in the heptathlon, two more in the pole vault and an academic All- American honor. In 1998, Andrea Branson stepped on the scene and had a productive pole vaulting career of her own. She would go on to win five All-America honors between 1998 and 2000, tying her with Mason for the most in program history. When she left KU, Branson had etched her name in the Kansas record books with the top vault in the history of KU women’s pole vaulting, both indoor and outdoor. THE RISE OF THE WOMEN’S PROGRAM SHEILA CALMESE CARLA COFFEY 1985 WOMEN’S TRACK 159HISTORY
  • 2014 KANSAS TRACK & FIELD On the women’s side, Charisse Bacchus earned All-America accolades with her fifth-place performance in the indoor long jump and her seventh-place result in the outdoor long jump. A total of six Jayhawks earned outdoor All-America awards, coupled with three indoor All-Americans. Other standouts on the women’s team included pole vaulters Amy Linnen and Kate Sultanova and triple jumper Brooklyn Hann. Linnen was the 2005 indoor NCAA champion in the pole vault, becoming the first KU woman to win an individual championship since Kloster in 1996. Sultanova was also impressive in her pole vaulting career, capturing the 2005 Big 12 outdoor championship. Both Linnen and Sultanova garnered All-America honors at the 2005 NCAA outdoor championships. At the same meet, Hann finished eighth in the triple jump, good for All-America accolades. A successful 2007 season was highlighted by one national championship, numerous school records being set and several thrilling performances. During the indoor season, junior Agafonov captured the NCAA Championship in the weight throw with the second-best toss in school history (77-05.25 ft.). Junior Colby Wissel finished seventh in the 3,000-meter run to become the first KU athlete to win All-America honors in the event. Just a few weeks earlier, at the Big 12 Championships, Agafonov defended his Big 12 title in the weight throw, Wissel won the 3,000-meter run and freshman Jordan Scott won the Big 12 Championship in the pole vault with a career-best indoor mark of 17-05.50 ft. Scott, for his efforts throughout the indoor season, was named the Big 12’s Indoor Freshman of the Year. Scott also won the same award during the outdoor season, becoming the first male Jayhawk to win either distinction. Junior Kate Sultanova won the Big 12 title in the pole vault by tying a Big 12 meet record of 13-05.25 ft. Sultanova, though, saved her best for the NCAA Indoor National Championships. Her vault of 14-01.25 ft. earned her third place and tied the Kansas record set by 2005 national champion Amy Linnen. Sultanova’s All-America effort helped the Jayhawks tie for 34th place at the NCAA’s. Four other records went by the wayside as Ashley Brown set a new mark in the 60-meter hurdles, Victoria Howard broke the 200 meters record, Zlata Tarasova edged out her own record in the weight throw and Crystal Manning tied the school’s best triple jump. With a new look in 2001, the Jayhawk track & field and cross country team came out with a mission to get better, and that was exactly what they did. Under first-year head coach Stanley Redwine, the cross country team had its first NCAA participant since 1998 and recorded the best conference and regional finishes since the inception of the Big 12 Conference. That was just a sign of things to come as the men’s indoor team went on to finish eighth at the NCAA Indoor Championships just a year after the team was only able to finish 47th. Through the 2001 indoor and outdoor seasons, KU earned nine All-America awards beginning with Charlie Gruber, who won two; one in the indoor mile and the other as part of the Distance Medley Relay team. Other members of the All- American DMR team included Jabari Wamble, Andy Tate and Brian Blachly. Tate, another two-time winner in 2001, also was recognized as an All-American in the steeplechase. Three highly-talented field athletes won All-America honors that season, including Scott Russell in the weight throw, Ryan Speers in the shot put and Andrea Bulat in the javelin. THE STANLEY REDWINE ERA The success continued in the 2002 season as the men’s indoor team finished eighth at the NCAA Championships for the second-consecutive year, the team recorded 21 total NCAA qualifiers, celebrated eight Big 12 champions, broke 11 school records and watched senior thrower Scott Russell bring home two individual national titles. Russell was honored as both an Academic All-American and as the 2002 Big 12 Conference Outdoor Performer of the Year. Brooklyn Hann of the women’s team was honored as the conference Newcomer of the Year. In 2003, Kansas track & field was in the national spotlight when junior sprinter Leo Bookman won the 200 meter indoor and outdoor national championship titles. The KU coaching staff also watched as 30 of its athletes qualified for the Midwest Regional Championships, including 10 freshmen and five sophomores. The 2003 outdoor season produced 11 NCAA Championship qualifiers, the largest number of national competitors that Redwine had taken in his first four years at KU. Bookman shined again the next year, once more winning the indoor NCAA title in the 200-meter dash. Bookman broke his own Kansas record in the process with a career-best time of 20.42. Charlie Gruber represented the Jayhawks that summer (2004) in the Athens Olympics, competing for the United States in the 1,500 meters. In 2005, the Jayhawks saw continued success that included four Big 12 individual conference championships, one NCAA individual championship and eight All-Americans. For their efforts, Kate Sultanova was named Big 12 Outdoor Newcomer of the Year, Sheldon Battle was named Big 12 Outdoor Performer of the Year and Redwine garnered Big 12 Outdoor Coach of the Year honors. The 2006 season saw several Jayhawks collect conference and national accolades. Battle capped off his impressive intercollegiate career by repeating as the Big 12 indoor shot put champion, and earned All-America status in the indoor shot put and the weight throw. His performances during the outdoor season earned him All-America status in the shot put and hammer throw, capping off his two-year career at KU with six All-America honors. For his performance that season, Battle was named the Midwest Field Athlete of the Year. Also in 2006, the line of great Kansas throwers continued as Egor Agafonov captured the Big 12 crowns in the indoor weight throw and the outdoor hammer, in which he set a new conference record. He went on to earn All-America awards in both events. LEO BOOKMAN SCOTT RUSSELL KATE SULTANOVA 160
  • The Jayhawks found a way to match their indoor success during the outdoor season. KU, for the first time in the school’s history, had eight different athletes earn All-America honors as the men finished 18th and the women placed 35th at the NCAA Championships. At the conference championships, six members of the Crimson and Blue were crowned champions, the most for KU since the inception of the Big 12. Ashley Brown, Crystal Manning and Zlata Tarasova led the women to their highest Big 12 finish in team history under Redwine, placing fifth. Agafonov, the Big 12 and Midwest Regional Champion in the hammer throw, was named to the CoSIDA/ESPN the Magazine Academic All-America team after the conclusion of the season. The 2008 indoor and outdoor seasons proved to be two of the best in KU history for the Jayhawk women. Junior Nickesha Anderson was perhaps the brightest star for Kansas in 2008, leaving her mark in the school record books. During the indoor season, Anderson broke both the 60 and 200-meter dash records on numerous occasions. Her career-best time of 7.22 in the 60 meters earned her the Big 12 Championship in the event. At the outdoor NCAA championships, Anderson (100 meters and 200 meters) and Manning (long jump and triple jump) each won two All-America honors. Only one other woman had accomplished the feat in KU history (Candace Mason). Anderson went on to earn a spot in the 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing, China, as a member of Jamaica’s 4x100-meter relay team. In Agafonov’s final season at Kansas, he won his second- consecutive National Championship in the weight throw, as well as his fifth and sixth All-America honors and his third- consecutive Big 12 Championship in both the hammer throw and the weight throw. Although the 2009 campaign featured a youth-driven squad, the Kansas track & field team had several successes throughout the indoor and outdoor seasons. Lauren Bonds set two school records during the indoor season in the 1,000 meters (2:46.60) and the mile (4:43.74). Colby Wissel, a Redwine protege, hit four NCAA qualifying times in three different events during the indoor season, while also cracking the Kansas all-time bests list in the mile, 3,000 meters and 5,000 meters. Pole vaulter Jordan Scott was crowned Big 12 Indoor Champion for the third-consecutive year after he matched the third-highest mark in school history at 18-02.50 ft. at the league championship meet in College Station, Texas. Scott followed that performance with a third-place finish at the NCAA Indoor Championships, where he earned All-America honors for the second time in his career. Beginning in 2008, KU coaches hit the recruiting trail harder than ever, targeting some of the top high school athletes in the country. Their hard work paid off as the athletes that came on board in 2010 and 2011 have accounted for over 40 All- America honors. Thrower Mason Finley was a big part of the youth resurgence as he claimed four conference championships and was named an All-American eight times in three seasons as a Jayhawk. From 2011-13 the Kansas women’s program hit an all-time high, turning out All-Americans, conference champions and a national championship, the likes of which the Jayhawks had never seen. With several strong recruiting classes in a row, Redwine, along with his assistants, helped the women work their way up to national prominance. It began with the women claiming third at the conference indoor championships as they boasted six individual champions and tied their highest-ever finish at the indoor Big 12 meet in 2012. The women’s performance at the conference meet set the stage for the team at the NCAA Indoor Championships. Junior Andrea Geubelle and sophomore Diamond Dixon executed school-record performances in the triple jump and 400 meters, respectively, as each were crowned national champions in their events. Geubelle’s and Dixon’s wins were the first individual championships since Amy Linnen’s pole vault victory in 2005. With Geubelle’s and Dixon’s titles along with First Team All- America performances from Francine Simpson and Geubelle in the long jump and the 4x400-meter relay team, the women’s squad finished as the NCAA Indoor Runner-Up, the best finish for either a men’s or women’s KU team since 1975. The high finish vaulted the KU women into the national spotlight over the next 15 months as the team entered the 2013 campaign as one on a short list of favorites to win a national championship. The women made history early in the year with their first conference title at the Indoor Big 12 Championships in February, going on to claim their second-straight national runner-up finish at the NCAA Indoor Championships two weeks later. That set the stage for an outdoor season to remember, one which saw the KU women accomplish feats never before seen by a female program at the University of Kansas. In May, the Jayhawks completed the sweep by winning the Outdoor conference championship with the help of eight individual Big 12 titles. A month later, sitting as the nation’s top-ranked squad, Kansas ventured to Eugene, Ore., where it would spend four memorable days at the NCAA Championships. The Jayhawks accumulated 60 points throughout the meet, most of which came from Andrea Geubelle and Lindsay Vollmer. Geubelle tallied runner-up finishes in both the long jump and triple jump while Vollmer became the first KU female to take home an outdoor national title. The sophomore posted personal bests in six of the seven heptathlon events to earn the win and add 10 points to her team’s total. At the end of the final day Kansas had defeated second-place Texas A&M by the wide margin of 16 points. The team win marked the first national championship in program history and the first by a KU squad since the men took the NCAA crown in 1970. The women saw a team record 11 Jayhawks earn First Team All-America honors in 10 events. The KU title also marked the first time in NCAA history a school located above the Mason-Dixon Line had won an outdoor national championship. DIAMOND DIXON 2013 NATIONAL CHAMPIONS 161HISTORY

  • THE KANSAS RELAYS With the construction of Memorial Stadium in 1921, equipped with a quarter-mile track, plans were put in motion for the event. On April 20, 1923, the first Kansas Relays, under the direction of John Outland, Athletics director Phog Allen and Kansas track coach Karl Schlademan, were conducted. More than 600 athletes from across the nation competed. Outland became known as the “Father of the Kansas Relays.” The first decade of the Kansas Relays saw the participation of such outstanding performers as Tom Poor, Jim Bausch and Glenn Cunningham of Kansas, Ed Weir of Nebraska, Jack Elder of Notre Dame and Tom Churchill of Oklahoma. Poor won the first Relays high jump at 6-00.25 ft., and later placed fourth at the 1924 Olympics in Paris, France. Weir, a Cornhusker football star, set a world record (15.0) in the 120-meter high hurdles. Churchill and Bausch, also football stars, won consecutive decathlons in 1928-29 and 1931-32, respectively. Cunningham dominated the distance events in the mid- 1930s, winning the mile run in 1934-35, and the two-mile in 1932, 1933 and 1936. Bausch and Cunningham both competed in the 1932 Los Angeles Olympics, with Bausch winning the gold in the decathlon. In 1936, Glen Morris of the Denver Athletic Club broke the American record in the decathlon with 7,576 points, defeating Kansas Olympian Clyde Coffman and Chicago’s Jay Berwanger, college football’s first Heisman Trophy winner. Dr. James Naismith, known as the father of basketball; Kansas basketball All-American Adolph Rupp; Notre Dame football coach Knute Rockne and famed Kansas and Michigan football coach Fielding Yost appeared in the early days of the Relays as referees and officials. The 1940s ushered in the retirement of Cunningham who ran his last Relays in 1940. World War II made a major impact on the nation and caused the cancellation of the track event from 1943-45. The Relays were rekindled in 1946 as Harrison Dillard of Baldwin-Wallace College (Ohio) won the 120 high hurdles in 1946 and 1948, the latter setting a world record. The Relays were in full stride in the 1950s with the presence of Kansas head coach Bill Easton, who came from Drake in 1948. It was the beginning of the Jayhawks’ dominance in the conference and Midwest relays circuit. Two top Kansas athletes came in the form of weightman Al Oerter and distance ace Wes Santee. Oerter, who went on to win four Olympic golds, won consecutive Relays shot put titles in 1956, 1957 and 1958. Santee, who followed in Cunningham’s footsteps, became the only athlete to win the Most Outstanding Performer award at the Kansas, Drake and Texas Relays in the same year. Santee won the Kansas Relays title in 1952 and 1954, and registered the second-fastest American time ever in the mile in 1954. Also a part of the Relays was the State of Kansas interscholastic meet featuring Sunflower State high school competition. The event began in 1904 and was split between large and small school classes. The division was dropped in 1958 and the competition among schools of all sizes produced some of the best high school marks at that time. While the state of Kansas began competitions among the various classes later on, the Kansas Relays has still retained the high school portion of the meet as high school athletes from Kansas and neighboring states still compete today. The 1960s saw a changing of the guard in Kansas track and field as Easton was replaced by Bob Timmons as head coach in 1965. Kansas continued its dominance of the conference with the appearance of Wichita, Kan., native Jim Ryun. Perhaps the most decorated Jayhawk track athlete ever, Ryun has four Kansas Relays Most Outstanding Performer titles to his credit (1966-67-69-71). He is the only athlete to take home the honor on four occasions. In 1967, Ryun set the current Relays record in the mile run at 3:54.94. The 1970s saw the world’s top sprinters come to the Kansas Relays as Missouri and professional football standout Mel Gray won three university titles in the 100-yard dash (1969-71). In the open 100-yard dash, Olympians John Carlos, Herb Washington and Ivory Crockett each took titles in the early portion of the decade. One familiar competitor from Graceland (Iowa) College who later gained fame as a 1976 Olympic gold medalist was decathlete Bruce Jenner. The 1971 winner as a collegian, he also won the 1974 crown. His 8,240 points stood as a record until 1983. Female athletes made their first appearance in 1962 in a limited number of events. By 1976 a full array of women’s events were sponsored. Perhaps the most dominant performer ever on the women’s side was former Nebraska standout and Olympian Merlene Ottey. She won Most Outstanding Performer titles in 1981, 1982 and 1983 and still owns the 100- and 200-meter dash records. Former Iowa State standout and Olympic gold medalist Nawal El Moutawakel of Morocco set a collegiate record in the 400-meter hurdles in 1984. The 1980s continued the stream of top athletes to Mount Oread, including a contingent from the Soviet Union in 1983. Many of the top Olympians made the historic journey to Lawrence and smashed several records. Pole vaulter Joe Dial set the university and invitational vault records en route to being named the men’s outstanding performer in 1985 and 1987. Dial was also the first high school athlete to be named the Relays’ outstanding performer when he competed for Marlow (Okla.) High in 1980. Nineteen ninety-six KU Olympian Scott Huffman etched his name in the Relays history book by being named the outstanding performer in 1988. A combination of speed and distance marked the Kansas Relays in the 1990s. After Drake sprinter Kevin Little and Kansas State All- America thrower Angie Miller were recognized as the top performers in 1990, Barton County Community College athletes won four of the next six outstanding performer awards. Barton County’s Inez Turner took the honor twice, winning back-to-back honors in 1992 and 1993. Kansas looked strong in both team and individual accomplishments during the Relays of the late 90’s. Former Jayhawk All-American Michael Cox was named the men’s outstanding performer three times in that span. He earned his first two awards in 1992 and 1995 as a member of the KU track team, and in 1996, Cox returned to win his third award after finishing with a time of 3:59.20 and becoming the first Kansas runner to complete the mile in under four minutes at the Kansas Relays since Jim Ryun did so in 1972. In 1994, KU swept the men’s and women’s collegiate team titles. Also, Natasha Shafer became the first Kansas woman to be named outstanding performer. Jayhawk hurdler Dawn Steele-Slavens JOHN OUTLAND THE FATHER OF THE KANSAS RELAYS The concept of a major track & field meet at the University of Kansas was first espoused by legendary Kansas football coach John Outland. Outland grew up in the East and became heavily involved with the Penn Relays as a medical student at the University of Pennsylvania. In 1920, it was Outland’s urging to then-athletics director and basketball coach Phog Allen that a major Midwest competition could be successful and three years later the first meet took place. Outland’s vision quickly became reality and grew through the decades as one of the top collegiate meets in the nation. The KU Relays evolved into one of three premier collegiate meets in the nation, joining the Penn Relays and the Texas Relays as a destination for hundreds of collegiate athletes. Even after leaving the University of Kansas, Outland still returned for many years as the honorary referee of the events. 2014 KANSAS TRACK & FIELD164
  • KANSAS RELAYS RECORDSduplicated Shafer’s effort by winning the award in 1995. The 1996 Relays also featured a new event as the women’s pole vault was held for the first time. Stacy Dragila, the top- ranked vaulter in America, won the event and set the American record by clearing 13-6.50 ft. Her effort enabled her to be named the 1996 women’s outstanding performer. The 1997 event was a successful one for KU. Not only did the team earn several individual titles, but the men were named university Relays champions. Ninteen ninety-seven marked the inaugural running of the women’s 3,000-meter Steeplechase, and the event also saw Kevin Toth (unattached), who was named the men’s most outstanding performer, shatter the Relays’ 24-year-old shot put record. Toth’s throw of 71-02.50 ft. made him the 1997 world leader. After a break in competition due to construction on Memorial Stadium, the Kansas Relays returned in 2000 with the excitement and energy that fans had enjoyed in years past. Since the turn of the century, the eventual 2000 Olympic gold-medal winner in the 100 meters, Maurice Greene, set a new stadium and meet record in the 400-meter relay with a blazing time of 38.45 seconds. The 2001 Relays, ‘An Olympic Return,’ saw some big names make their way back to their old stomping grounds. Former Kansas greats Jim Ryun and Wes Santee excited the crowd with a traditional lap around Memorial Stadium as several Kansas legends and Olympians, including Billy Mills and Jim Hershberger, gathered to sign autographs for fans and present awards to the winning teams. Day three of the Relays was one of record-breaking performances. Eight Kansas Relays records were broken along with a Memorial Stadium record in the women’s shot put by Kansas State’s Rebekah Green. The 2005 Relays were one of the more anticipated events in its history. Several records fell during the three-day meet. Dominique Arnold and Muna Lee, both of Team Nike, broke Relays records in the 110-meter hurdles (13.33) and the 100-meter dash (11.1), respectively. Both were named the 2005 Kansas Relays Most Outstanding Performers for their efforts. Two-thousand and five also saw the addition of the GOLDZONE, a three-hour window in the meet that featured over 30 former Olympians. The second-largest crowd in Kansas Relays history (24,200) watched as several world- class athletes performed at the highest level, including Maurice Greene, Marion Jones, Amy Acuff and Charlie Gruber. At the past seven Relays, over 100,000 combined track and field fans have passed through the gates at Memorial Stadium. The GOLDZONE continued in 2007, the 80th edition of the Kansas Relays, as some of the greatest athletes in the world continued to flock to Lawrence in order to etch their names alongside the legendary track & field athletes who have covered the past 80 years of the Kansas Relays. In 2011, Kansas officials added a new feature to the Relays’ schedule: shot put and long jump competition, held on the streets of downtown Lawrence. Hundreds of fans enjoyed the events, which brought in many elite athletes including seven of the top 15 throwers in the world. The 85th Relays in 2012 featured another historical moment as fans saw the world record broken for the largest single serving of nachos. On the track, Bershawn “Batman” Jackson shined again, winning the 400-meter hurdles for the seventh time while Reese Hoffa took the trophy at the second Downtown Shot Put event. Hoffa went on to claim bronze at the 2012 London Olympics. In its final meet inside Memorial Stadium, the 2013 Kansas Relays was one to remember as a world-leading 400-meter hurdle time by Michael Tinsley and three individual titles by Lawrence Free State’s Alexa Harmon-Thomas highlighted the week’s performances. The duo’s outings earned them Outstanding Performers of the Meet accolades. The Relays will now turn the page to a new chapter as it moves from its 86-year Memorial Stadium home to the brand new, state-of-the- art track & field facility at Rock Chalk Park. 9.95 Ivory Williams, Nike, 2010 20.15 James Mallard, Alabama, 1980 45.12 Devon Morris, Wayland Baptist, 1986 1:48.22 Victor Lacis, Unattached, 2000 3:38.62 Rick Wohlhuter, Chicago TC, 1976 3:54.70 Jim Ryun, Kansas, 1967 13:40.35 Kipsubai Koskei, Unattached, 1980 28:56.90 Simon Kilili, Unattached, 1978 13.26 Antwon Hicks, Nike, 2008 48.34 Bershawn Jackson, Nike, 2006 8:33.70 Randy Smith, Unattached., 1976 38.16 Sprint Capitol, 2000 3:03.67 Philadelphia Pioneers, 1980 7-07 ft.

Heptathlon VOLLMER’S RUN TO A CHAMPIONSHIP On an early Friday in June of 2013, sophomore Lindsay Vollmer made Kansas track & field history by becoming the first female to win an NCAA outdoor individual championship after she claimed the heptathlon title at the national championships in Eugene, Ore. The Hamilton, Mo., native posted personal bests in all but one of the seven events throughout the two-day event. Still trailing after the fifth event, Vollmer unleashed a mamouth throw in the javelin, besting the rest of the heptathlon field by more than five feet and jumping into the lead heading into the seventh and final event, the 800 meters. Vollmer again posted an enormous personal best, completing the two laps in 2:19.36. The time earned her the final 832 points of the competition and was just enough to outpace Arkansas’ Makeba Alcide in the final standings by 36 points. Vollmer’s final score of 6,086 made her the No. 10 performer in NCAA history and was the ninth time in NCAA Championship history a female as broken the 6,000-point barrier. She beat or tied her former lifetime bests in six of the seven events to down her previous heptathlon personal record by more than 400 points. She also erased Candace Mason’s 1999 school record of 5,674 points. DIAMOND DIXON ANDREA GEUBELLE AMY LINNEN SHEILA CALMESE LINDSAY VOLLMER 167HISTORY

  • 2014 KANSAS TRACK & FIELD192 COMPLIANCE 101: UNDERSTANDING THE “RULES OF THE GAME” With the continued success of Kansas Athletics, the Athletic Compliance Office wants you to understand how you can help KU coaches and student-athletes. Institutional control of athletics is a fundamental requirement of NCAA legislation. Specifically, the NCAA constitution provides that each institution shall be responsible for: • Controlling its intercollegiate athletics program in compliance with the rules and regulations of the NCAA. • Monitoring its program to ensure compliance with identifying and reporting to the NCAA instances in which compliance has not been achieved and taking appropriate corrective action. • Ensuring that members of the institution’s staff, student-athletes and other individuals or groups representing the institution’s athletics interests comply with all applicable NCAA rules. Under NCAA rules, KU is responsible for all actions of its boosters. Therefore, it is also our responsibility to make you aware of consequences for violating the rules pertaining to permissible booster activity. Boosters found in violation are subject to losing benefits and privileges, including season tickets. In addition, the NCAA Committee on Infractions has required institutions to disassociate boosters who have violated NCAA rules and regulations from the institution. COMPLIANCE TERMINOLOGY BOOSTERS You are a representative of KU’s athletics interests, more commonly known as a “booster,” if you meet any of the following conditions: • You are a member of any organization that promotes KU’s athletics program (e.g., Williams Education Fund); • You have made a financial contribution to the KU athletics department or its booster organization; • You have assisted in the recruitment of prospective student-athletes for KU; • You have provided benefits (e.g., summer jobs or occasional family meals) to enrolled student-athletes; • You are the parent(s) or legal guardian(s) of an enrolled student-athlete; or • You have, in any way, promoted the athletics program at KU. Remember: Once an individual has been identified as a booster, he or she retains this identity indefinitely. Even if you are not a booster as defined by the NCAA, know that your actions involving student-athletes can cause violations of NCAA rules. Something as simple as buying a student-athlete lunch at a fast food restaurant is, most likely, a NCAA violation. Please contact the Athletic Compliance Office with your questions regarding impermissible recruiting inducements and extra benefits. PROSPECTS A prospective student-athlete, commonly known as a “prospect” or “recruit,” is any individual who has started classes for the ninth grade. In addition, a student who has not started classes for the ninth grade becomes a prospect if the institution contacts the student for recruiting purposes or provides the student (or the student’s relatives or friends) any financial assistance or other benefits that the institution does not generally provide to all prospective students. In addition, student- athletes enrolled in preparatory schools or two-year colleges are considered prospective student-athletes. Remember: A prospect remains a prospect even after he or she signs a National Letter of Intent or Financial Aid Agreement to attend KU. The prospect does not lose this status until the start of classes at the university or until the beginning of official practice prior to the start of classes, whichever occurs first. After classes or official practice begins, the prospective student-athlete then simply becomes a student-athlete. CONTACT A “contact” is a face-to-face encounter between a prospect or the prospect’s parent, relative or legal guardian and institutional staff member or athletics representative during which dialogue occurs in excess of an exchange of a greeting. However, any such face-to- face encounter on the KU campus or during a KU event that is prearranged, or takes place on the grounds of the prospect’s educational institution or at the site of an organized competition or practice involving the prospect or the prospect’s high school, preparatory school, two- year college or all-star team, shall be considered a contact, regardless of the content of the conversation that occurs. TELEPHONE/ELECTRONIC CORRESPONDENCE CONTACT The restriction on contact extends to telephone and electronic correspondence. Any contact by you or any other booster, alumnus or other representative of athletics interest via these modes of comunication is prohibited. Electronic correspondence includes, but not limited to, text messaging or any application that functions as a text message (i.e. snapchat), email, any social media methods (i.e. Facebook, Twitter), chat rooms and instant message. Telephone contact is any electronically-transmitted voice exchange including, but not limited to, calls and video conferenceing such as as Skype and Facetime. RECRUITING Any contact by you or any other booster, alumnus or other representative of Kansas Athletics’ interests for the purpose of recruitment, is strictly and clearly prohibited. It is not permissible for any member of Kansas Athletics’ staff, alumnus or booster to contact a student-athlete at another institution for the purpose of recruitment. A student-athlete who is attending another institution must receive written permission from their institution before they can have contact with the University of Kansas. If you know of a prospective student-athlete who may want to attend KU, we encourage you to call the appropriate coach. Contacting a KU coach is the only permissible recruiting activity in which boosters may participate. EMPLOYMENT It is permissible for an athletics representative or alumnus/alumna to contact a prospect regarding summer employment prior to initial enrollment provided the prospect has signed a National Letter of Intent. However, no contact may be made without approval from the Athletic Compliance Office. In addition, the employment arrangement for the prospect may not begin until the prospect has graduated from high school. If the prospect is attending a two-year institution, the employment may not begin prior to the time that the prospect has officially withdrawn from or has completed the requirements for graduation at the two-year college. EXTRA BENEFITS It is not permissible to provide any type of assistance to a prospect — financial or otherwise. A representative of Kansas Athletics’ interests or a “booster” may not provide ANYTHING to a prospect, their friends or family, even if the prospect has a signed National Letter of Intent or a Financial Aid Agreement. STUDENT-ATHLETE. A student-athlete is any University of Kansas student who is a member of a varsity athletics team. EXTRA BENEFITS An extra benefit is any special arrangement by an institutional employee or booster to provide a student-athlete or his/her relatives or friends with a benefit not expressly authorized by the NCAA legislation. It is a violation of the NCAA rules to provide an extra benefit to a student-athlete. OCCASIONAL MEAL You may provide a student-athlete or a team with an occasional meal at your home. This meal can be catered and you may provide the student- athletes with transportation to attend the meal. All occasional meals must be pre-approved by the Athletic Compliance Office Together, the University of Kansas and YOU will make this program a success. These reminders will help guide you and ensure that Kansas Athletics operates within the rules and regulations of the NCAA as we continue toward our ultimate goal of academic and athletics excellence. If in doubt, remember that in most cases any contact with or benefits given to a prospect or an enrolled student-athlete or their family or friends is strictly prohibited.
