Looking Back (April 10 through April 16)

The second game was played in Lawrence and the Jayhawks prevailed again, 11-7. Over the weekend KU took on instate foe K-State. For the first time this season, KU lost a home game dropping the Friday opener, 5-4. Game two on Saturday was delayed several hours due to weather and the outcome was not good as the Wildcats won again, 6-1. The series finally on Sunday was a wild affair. K-State scored 13 runs in the second inning and went on to win, 21-17.
Softball got their series with #8 Texas off to an exciting start Friday night in Austin beating the Longhorns 9-3. Texas came back on Saturday to take game 2, 10-0. Sunday’s finale was a much tighter contest. The game headed to the bottom of the seventh tied at 2 when the Longhorns pushed across the winning run to win the game 3-2.
Track & Field hosted the Kansas Relays on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. The biggest news out of the first two days was Dimitrios Pavlidis setting a school and Greek national record in the men’s discus with a throw of 64.9 meters.
