Kansas University’s track and field teams combined for 22 event victories, including 15 of 19 events on the women’s side, as the Jayhawks kicked off 2016 at the Bill Easton Classic on Friday inside Anschutz Pavilion.

The KU women were nearly perfect on the track, claiming wins in 11 of the 12 running events, while 11 Jayhawk men turned in career-best marks in their first outing of the year.

“There some good and not-so-good performances today, but overall I was pleased with what we did today,” KU coach Stanley Redwine said. “There were some people that took big strides over the break, and those were the ones that had good outings today. In all, it was a good way to start the year.”

This article did not even mention who the competition was.

Its a track meet with probably a dozen or more teams. Not a duel. Having done T&F in college im guessing a few local D2 schools, a few Big 12 schools, and a few local JUCO and NAIA teams

It's because the JW staff isn't sending someone to cover the meet, but taking a release from KUAD, which doesn't mention the numerous jucos and small schools who were, almost certainly, the competition here. Barton County, Highland, St. Mary's, etc.
