It was an ideal setup for Hunter Krom at Saturday’s Kansas Relays. The Lawrence High junior entered the javelin throw as the top seed with the wind at his back, and most importantly, throwing with his teammate, junior Harrison King.
The No. 12-ranked Kansas men's track and field team won the scored invitational of the KU Relays on Saturday at Rock Chalk Park. Kansas finished second to Minnesota on the women's side. KU alumnus Michael Stigler continued to return to form by winning the college/open division of the 400-meter hurdles.
Jackson Goddard allowed two runs and struck out seven in seven innings, and Kansas’ baseball team defeated Oklahoma, 5-2, on Saturday in Norman, Okla.
Ross Randall, Kansas golf coach for 28 years before stepping down in 2007, died of an apparent heart attack Friday night in the Florida home he shared with wife Linda.
"I coached against Ross for many years and I always remember him as a very good coach, and even better person,” current Kansas golf coach Jamie Bermel said of Randall in a statement released by the athletic department. “He had a great feel for the game and a great feel for his players. He loved KU and loved representing this university.”
Kerr's health situation is worse than previously thought
Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr was absent Saturday night for the Warriors' 119-113 comeback victory in Portland. The team simply said he "wasn't feeling well." That naturally set off alarm bells for anyone paying attention, after Kerr missed half of last season with complications from back surgery.
St. Louis, New York and Edmonton eked out victories that eliminated Minnesota, Montreal and San Jose
The Blazers had no answer for the Warriors once they got going in Game 3
Beast Mode and the Raiders apparently don't see eye to eye on this one thing
The two have been battling -- both on and off the floor -- for the entirety of the series
The two foes engaged in a heated argument earlier in the series between the Hawks and Wizards and have been physical with each other on the court throughout the series. But after Game 3 on Saturday, the beef went from on-the-court to personal. After Game 3, Morris called Millsap a 'crybaby.'
Rainy weather on the east coast hasn’t stopped people from hitting the streets to march for science today. But the conditions in Antarctica and the Arctic Circle are currently quite a bit more extreme and protests in the name of facts are still rocking those two far-flung locations.
Earth is exhausting—excruciatingly so, if you’re a young curmudgeon like me. At times, performing even the most mundane tasks, like commuting on a crowded, smelly subway car, feels like an Olympic marathon designed to test one’s patience. Space compels us because it forces us to think outside this myopic view of ourselves—not in a “Dust in the Wind” way, but in the sense that we’re tiny flecks of star stuff lucky to be members of something so vast and incredible. And in recent years, one of the greatest reminders of this is the volume of research and images sent back to Earth from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft, which first entered Saturn’s system in 2004.
“There’s a sense of loss,” Earl Maize, Cassini project manager at JPL, said earlier this month at a NASA press conference. “We, humankind, have been at Saturn for 13 years. You can get up in the morning, get the weather report, see what the images look like...we are connected, and we’ve connected the entire planet. That’s going to go away...and unfortunately, there’s not a substitute for that for some time.”
