MANHATTAN, Kan. - Kansas State track star Beverly Ramos closed her career as a Wildcat as an All-American and has moved on to open her professional career with two solid performances in Canada. Ramos finished sixth at the Harry Jerome International Track & Field Classic on Monday in the women's 1,500 meters and a win at the Victoria International Track Classic on Wednesday.


Ramos crossed the line in 4:12.61 at the Harry Jerome Classic, which moves her into second in school history just a few hundredths of a second off the record pace set by Amy Mortimer and gives her another Puerto Rican national record. Ramos then followed that performance by winning the women's 1,500M international competition at the Victoria Track Classic with her time of 4:14.11.


The summer schedule is just beginning for Ramos as she will compete in the Central American and Caribbean Games representing her native Puerto Rico with the meet held in her home country later this month. Ramos is now the Puerto Rican national record holder in the 1,500M, 3,000M, 3,000M steeplechase, 5,000M and 10,000M. Her time at the Harry Jerome Classic is eligible for the K-State record books as the coaching staff takes performances in the summer after a student-athlete's senior season into consideration.
