A Letter from A.D. John Currie - June 3

Good Evening K-State Nation!

Wow! What an incredible game we witnessed last night at Tointon Family Stadium as the 'Cats fought back from an early 3-0 deficit to beat Arkansas, 4-3, and advance for the first time ever to an NCAA Super Regional. Big 12 Coach of the Year Brad Hill's squad will depart later this week for a best-of-three series at Oregon State, the No. 3 national seed, starting Friday or Saturday. The winner will claim one of eight spots in the 2013 College World Series in Omaha, beginning June 15. Stay tuned later tonight for ticket and ESPN coverage for this coming weekend's action.

Meanwhile, while Manhattan was making history hosting its first-ever NCAA Baseball Regional, Erik Kynard set a new K-State high jump record with a leap of 7-8.75 in the prestigious Prefontaine Classic on Saturday!

There will be lots of K-State Purple in Oregon this weekend as in addition to baseball in Corvallis, Coach Cliff Rovelto is taking an outstanding contingent to the NCAA Outdoor Championships in Eugene, including Erica Twiss (400m hurdles), Martina Tresch (steeplechase), Kyle Wait (pole vault), Jharyl Bowry (long jump), our men's 4x100 relay team, decathletes Tomas Kirielius and Reinis Kregers and of course the reigning NCAA high jump champ in Kynard.
