Among all things discussed at this week's K-State football press conference with head coach Bill Snyder, the common theme of consistency, regardless of which position group he spoke about, was among the most important. Though the Wildcats are through nine of the 15 allotted spring practices, Snyder hopes that in this final week before the Purple/White Spring Game, the consistency from his players will only continue to grow.

Letter from A.D. John Currie - April 17

Good Afternoon K-State Fans,

It has been several weeks since I last wrote but that's certainly not because of the lack of activity around K-State Athletics! I'll catch up on several interesting recent tidbits, but first let me mention a couple of upcoming events for your planning purposes.

Last Chance to See Petra Niedermayerova Live in Mike Goss Tennis Stadium
Over the past four seasons, Petra Niedermayerova has built a record that perhaps could rank her as K-State's all-time greatest tennis player. Additionally, she has been a model student-athlete off the court, majoring in economics and being recognized as a two-time ITA Academic All-American and the 2013 Big 12 Scholar Athlete of the Year in women's tennis. She's been all-conference, All-America and holds K-State's career wins records in both singles and doubles.

Senior Day ceremonies start at 11 a.m. Saturday and will be followed by the match vs. the Jayhawks at 12 p.m.  Three pro-set matches of doubles (with Petra and Amina St. Hill on court No. 1) will be followed by the six singles matches. Admission is free. Come out and salute Petra for an incredible K-State career and also bring the kids for USTA/ITA Campus Kids Day.(click here for a special short video)

Transition, regardless of how it happens in life, can often be tough, and it's not often that everything falls into place perfectly.
