K-State Track and Field Adds Home Meet

April 2, 2014K-State AthleticsMANHATTAN, Kan. – K-State Track and Field announced the addition of a home meet, the Wildcat Open, as well as changes to the Ward Haylett Invitational today. The Ward Haylett Invitational, originally scheduled for May 10, has been pushed back to May 3, while the Wildcat Open will now take place on May 10.

Along with the date change, the Ward Haylett Invitational will now start at 11 a.m., rather than 10 a.m., on Saturday, May 3. The meet will be team scored and is expected to be one of the more competitive meets K-State has hosted in quite a while, according to head coach Cliff Rovelto. The Wildcats are set to compete against Air Force Academy, Kansas and Wichita State.    

The addition of the Wildcat Open comes due to the cancellation of the Rock Chalk Classic, which was scheduled for May 3 in Lawrence, Kan. The meet is open to all Division I and Division II participants and will begin at 9 a.m., on Saturday, May 10 with the women’s javelin throw. It will provide an opportunity for the athletes to compete prior to the Big 12 Championships, which are set for the following weekend.
