Wildcats Power Through Plagued Woodman Classic

WICHITA, Kan. After delaying the KT Woodman Classic for a day at Wichita State, Kansas State completed the event on Sunday with one title and six top-three finishes despite additional winds and cool temperatures. Senior Bryce Bergman won his second pole vault crown of the season as he topped the field with a season-best height of 16-00.75.


Junior Emily Dittemore emerged as the top Wildcat for the women on the day after pulling in two top-two finishes. Performing in her hometown of Wichita, Dittemore ran to second-place in the 1500M with a time of 4:51.65. She added to that a mark of 2:21.70 in the 800M that earned Dittemore third place.


Also on the track, the K-State women had a pair of Wildcats finish in the top three of the 100M and 400M hurdles. Freshman Denise Baker took second in the 100M hurdles with a run of 14.29, one of her top career marks. For the 400M hurdles, freshman Kristel Williams crossed the line in 1:08.21 to finish third.


Megan-Anne Perrin had her second-straight week of solid performances in the 3000M steeplechase. After taking first in last week’s ESU Relays, the sophomore ran to third place at the Woodman Classic with a clocking of 11:26.10.
