Kansas track & field head coach Stanley Redwine was selected as the 2016 Men's Big 12 Coach of the Year by the league's coaches it was announced by the conference office Thursday.
The Kansas track & field program learned Thursday afternoon that 32 entries between the men's and women's teams have been accepted into the preliminary round of the 2016 NCAA Division I Outdoor Track & Field Championships being held May 26-28 at Rock Chalk Park in Lawrence.
Thursday's contest has been moved to Friday where the two teams will play a doubleheader starting a 2 p.m. The night cap of the two-game set will begin at 6 p.m., or about 40 minutes following the first game if it runs long. Saturday's contest will remain as scheduled.

We definitely won that for sure. I love the Morris twins, though. Those my boys, though.”
