Wildcats of the Week

MANHATTAN, Kan. Robert Streb of the K-State men’s golf team and Beverly Ramos of the women’s cross country team are this week’s Wildcats of the Week honorees, announced on Tuesday morning by the Kansas State Athletic Department. This is the second time this season that Ramos has earned the distinction.



Robert Streb, Sr., Edmond, Okla./Edmond North HS

Kansas State senior Robert Streb, who was in fifth heading into Tuesday’s final round of the Cardinal Intercollegiate, finished in second place at 12-under 204, thanks in part to a final-round score of 6-under par 66. He extended his streak of sub-par rounds to six, the latest tying for the ninth-lowest round in school history. His score of 204 also tied for the fifth-lowest 54-hole score in school history and was one stroke shy of his career-low of 203 at the 2007 Pacific Invitational.


Beverly Ramos, Jr., Trujillo Alto, Puerto Rico/Golegio Nuestra Senora de Belen


Beverly Ramos won the Cowboy Jamboree, setting a personal best and course record, helping the women’s cross country team to a fifth-place finish. Ramos finished first in the 6K women’s race with a time of 20:30. With the performance, Ramos, a junior from Trujillo Alto, Puerto Rico, won her third consecutive race this season. Clocking at 20:30, Ramos set a new career best 6K time, jumping ahead of the previous best, 20:51, and breaking the course record by 32 seconds. The two wins prior to the Jamboree, Ramos won the races by an average of 30 seconds; Saturday she topped Caroline Karunde of Wayland Baptist by just three seconds.
