Article did not mention the powerhouse Texas A&M has built in track and field.

Their men's AND women's T&F squads won their 3rd consecutive national team titles in Des Moines this weekend. Amazing!

and in both cases (A&M men's and women's) won the 4x400 to close the meet and secure the NC! They did a special during the meet about the coach, and the championships he won at LSU before going to A&M.

Will there be an article in the future about the otherwise unidentified "several" athletes going to Nike-town, err Eugene?

we probably did as well as we could....if we could have had Scott there, and a repeat of where Finley finished last year....who knows?

track and field did well to end the year...kudos to Coach Redwine and his staff, and of course, the athletes....Go Jayhawks!

Not sure if I should be happy they broke a Kansas record or bummed that their record breaking feat was 8th best.
