Myer Runs for Two Regional Marks

MANHATTAN, Kan. The Kansas State track and field team finished the Kansas Relays with two regional qualifying marks on Saturday both posted by sprinter Mike Myer. Myer had strong performances in the 100 and 200 meters. A number of Wildcats also performed well on the final day of the Kansas Relays to continue their progression through the season.


Myer ran to a second-place finish in the men’s 200 meter final finishing in 21.29 seconds. It was another regional qualifying mark for Myer. He also finished second in the 100 meters final in 10.55 seconds. That time also was a regional mark. TiAra Walpool finished sixth in the final of the women’s 200 meters with a time of 24.89 seconds.


A pair of Wildcats finished among the leaders in the women’s 1,500 meters. Emilee Morris finished third in 4:41.33 with Megan-Anne Perrin right behind her in 4:41.92. Perrin bested her previous fastest time in the event by nearly four seconds.


In mid-distance for the Wildcats, Jack Sachse finished fourth in the final of the 800 meters. His time of 1:51.62 was just slightly slower than his personal best set last week.


Denise Baker ran to a fourth-place finish in the final of the women’s 100 meter hurdles with a time of 14.46 seconds.


Eric Thomas led a trio of Wildcats in the men’s discus. Thomas finished seventh with a throw of 167 feet to mark his longest throw of the season. Kyle Younger and Josh Mathiasmeier finished 12th and 13th respectively.


The Wildcats will be on the road again next weekend participating in the Nebraska Open and the Drake Relays as the clock toward the Big 12 Conference Championship continues to tick.
