Kansas University picked up victories in 12 events in a dominant performance at the Sunflower State Track and Field Triangular on Friday at Anschutz Pavilion.

The KU men’s and women’s teams scored a combined 254 points to beat Kansas State (234) and Wichita State (203).

Kansas had 126 points to edge WSU (110) and KSU (109) in the men’s only standings.

KU’s women had 128 points to hold off K-State (125) and WSU (93).

Six Jayhawks and a relay team produced marks that rank among the top-10 in the NCAA this season, including senior Daina Levy, who moved herself to the top of the national ranks in the weight throw.

“It’s great to come away from this meet with the team victory, but I was more pleased to see how well everyone competed today,” KU coach Stanley Redwine said. “We had people do great in every event area, so it was definitely a total team effort. It’s great to be able to get that trophy on our home track.”

Levy, on her last throw, unleashed a personal- and meet-record toss of 21.35 meters (70 feet). It’s the longest throw in the NCAA this season.

On the men’s side, Nicolai Ceban had an personal-indoor-best shot put of 19.17 meters (62-10), the third-best mark in the NCAA so far.

Kansas’ other event winners: Whitney Adams, 400 meters, 55.56 seconds; Nicole Montgomery, 600, 1:20.86; Nashia Baker, 1,000, 2:53.02; Sharon Lokedi, mile, 4:56.39; Drew Matthews, 400, 49.13; Strymar Livingston, 600, 1:10.74; Anthonio Humphrey, 800, 1:54.04; Brandon Bernal, 1,000, 2:27.18; Jacob Morgan, 3,000, 8:30.36; and the men’s 4X400 relay team of Matthews, Tre Daniels, Jaron Hartley and Livingston, in 3:14.83.

KU will host the Jayhawk Classic, Jan. 28-29 in Anschutz.
