SV's Peters breaks record; rain halts state

By Steve Sell
May 24, 2019

WICHITA — It rained and rained and rained some more on Friday at Cessna Stadium at the Kansas State Track and Field Championships.

Nearly all of Friday’s schedule was wiped out, though Smoky Valley’s Belle Peters was the highlight performer of the day before the skies opened.

Peters broke the Class 3A girls pole vault record by clearing 12-8 and already was the champion when the rain hit as she was trying to improve her mark. She earlier advanced to the finals of the 100 with a time of 15.3.

Two Viking 3,200 meter performers ran, with Ryan Heline taking eighth for the boys in 10:17.31 for a medal, while Gracie Lott was 12th for the girls in 13:16.62.

Bri Franklin of the Vikings was 14th in the discus with a mark of 97-3, while Smoky’s Carson Windholz was 14th in the triple jump in 40-10 3/4.

KSHSAA officials announced that Saturday’s track events would start at 7:30 a.m. with the Class 4A, 5A and 6A 3,200 meters. All track events will be timed finals, which means the best marks from each heat will be used and there won’t be one combined final.

Field events will resume on Saturday at 8 a.m. using Friday’s schedule.

As for the few other events completed, Canton-Galva’s Tia Moddelmog qualified sixth in the 2A 100 hurdles (16.65) and will compete in Saturday’s finals. C-G’s Morgan Becker was 13th in the boys 3,200 (10:50.52), right behind Inman’s Nicholas Martisko (10:44.96).

Moundridge’s Emma Green qualified fourth in the 1A 100 hurdles in 15.72, while Little River’s Kaylie Zimmerman was 12th in 17.1.

Hesston’s Nicholas Arnold was 14th in the 110 hurdles (17.06).

DeSousa ruled eligible for KU

LAWRENCE — Silvio is free!

Kansas University’s Silvio DeSousa, who previously had been ruled ineligible for the 2019-20 season by the NCAA, today won his appeal and will be in a Jayhawk uniform for the upcoming season.

"Kansas men's basketball student-athlete Silvio De Sousa is eligible to play the upcoming season after sitting the 2018-19 season due to NCAA rule violations. Kansas appealed the NCAA staff decision of a two-season withholding to the Division I Student-Athlete Reinstatement committee, which determined additional relief was appropriate,” the NCAA statement read.

DeSousa, a chiseled 6-9 forward who averaged 4 points and nearly 4 rebounds as a freshman, sat out the entire 2018-19 season due to the NCAA process and has three years of eligibility remaining.

The Teutons’ Brown brothers, catcher Carter and outfielder Connor, made the elite unit.

Second-team members included Inman pitchers Kyler Konrade and Landen Snyder, outfielder Derick Johnson and utility player Jayden Leonhardt.

Moundridge’s Cody Hazelton made the second team as an outfielder.

The Wildcats had several honorable mention picks — pitcher Collin Kohl, catcher Wyatt Falco, second baseman Corbin Unruh and third baseman Jon Schlosser.
