Kansas throwers Cooper, Ceban 10th, 13th in discus


— For the second consecutive season, Kansas University junior Mitch Cooper earned second-team All-America honors, while sophomore Nicolai Ceban accomplished the feat for the first time at the NCAA Track and Field Outdoor on Friday at Hayward Field.

Cooper took 10th place in the discus with a toss of 188 feet, 3 inches, and Ceban was 13th at 186-2. It was the fifth year since 2010 that a KU discus thrower has earned first- or second-team All-America honors.

It marked the first time since 1970 that multiple Jayhawks earned a spot on the first or second All-America squad in the discus in the same year.

The Outdoor concludes today.
