Great finish for the women's 4x400! What a race! A poor exchange dropped them to 6th and they made an amazing come back. You can watch T&F here: http://www.ncaa.com/sports/trackfield-outdoor-men/d1 Looking forward to watching Finley in the shot put and Diamond in the 400 m.

we could have two team top 15 finishes....possibly top 10....that would be a great way for the year to end. Go tracksters and Go Jayhawks!
