Things just never fell K-State's way yesterday afternoon at Tointon Family Stadium. The wind howled and the rain poured, and, despite keeping it close, the Wildcats (18-20, 5-10 Big 12) fell, 4-1, to No. 19 Texas Tech (25-15, 9-6 Big 12) in the rubber match of the three-game series.

This weekend has been a busy one for K-State Athletics. Starting with the Wildcat baseball team hosting a three-game series against Texas Tech, the Wildcat track and field squad competing in the KU Relays, the equestrian team at the NCEA Championships, a pair of golf tournaments and two tennis matches, there has been plenty of action for the Cats.

Letter from A.D. John Currie - April 17

Good Afternoon K-State Nation,

As we get this weekend's Texas Tech series at Tointon Stadium underway, let's first congratulate Coach Hill and our baseball team on not only a dramatic comeback walk-off win in extra innings over Wichita State on Tuesday night but also for last weekend's series win over No. 2 TCU.  I am proud of our coaches, staff and student-athletes for continuing to work hard every day, and the progress being made has been fun to watch.  Let's keep it going this weekend against the 19th-ranked Red Raiders!

Have you been by Bill Snyder Family Stadium lately and seen the progress on the new Vanier Football Complex?  On Tuesday afternoon we had the opportunity to walk through the building with ESPN.com Big 12 reporter Jake Trotter (@Jake_Trotter) - among the highlights was seeing the new state-of-the-art hydrotherapy units being installed in the training room and the windows going into the fourth floor west side.  Also, the limestone field wall on the north end - which previews the long term plan of a limestone wall fronting the seating sections surrounding Dave Wagner Field - is now largely complete and looks great!  Also, work has begun by Daktronics to install the big new northwest corner video board, another commitment to our goal of offering "The Best Fan Experience in the Big 12 Conference."  Click here for more pictures and the link to our live web cam in addition to Jake's story on his visit and the construction.
