The final events of the Kansas Relays took place just before midnight Friday night.
After a day of competition at Rock Chalk Park — including a schedule compressed by the threat of severe weather Saturday — the Kansas men and women swept the team titles at the 88th Kansas Relays.
In a track and field meet that featured a quadrangular format, the KU men cruised to a team title, putting up 226 points and pulling past Kansas State, Colorado State and Purdue. The KU women, meanwhile, compiled 194 points and edged second-place K-State by 22 points.
Senior sprinter Michael Stigler, who won the 400-meter hurdles Friday afternoon, also helped Kansas’ 1,600-meter relay team to a victory in the final relay of the day, which began at 11:50 p.m. Friday.
Never miss a local story.
In other victories: Kansas’ Sydney Conley won the women’s 100 meters with a personal-best time of 11.54 seconds.
Senior high jumper Colleen O’Brien also set a personal best while winning the high jump. O’Brien cleared 6 feet, 3/4 inch, which was the best jump by a KU women’s high jumper in more than two decades. O’Brien now ranks sixth in the NCAA and first in the Big 12 in the high jump.
Kansas senior Jaimie House won the pole vault, while K-State’s Sara Savatovic won the hammer throw over KU junior Daina Levy, who uncorked a personal-best throw of 215 feet, 11 inches.
