  • Fr. Taran Taylor was 14th after 3 throws and failed to make the finals where the Top 8 throwers after 3 attempts receive 3 more attemptths. Jr. Aaron True did make the finals and finished the competition in 6th place with a throw of 232-8. Aaron was extremely consistent on his 6 throws throwing 232-3, 228-0, 227-6, 232-8, 231-3, 230-5. A very fine showing by Aaron.

        • Rayvon went 24-11.75 in the finals but that was only good for 10th place in the IAAF U20 Worlds. The winner from Japan went 26-4.25.

          All-in-all a a hell of a reshman year for the kid from St. Louis. Conratulations Rayvon. I'm sure the USA and Junior Worlds have been a great experience for Rayvon.

          Shocker teammate Taran Taylor competes in the javelin early Friday morning at 1:30 a.m. CT.

          • Taran had an off day throwing the javelin and could only manage 197-8 in Group B well below his best and well below his winning effort in the USA U20 Championhsips.

            Still a hell of a freshman year for the young man from Arkansas City, perhaps a unexpected and surprisingly good year. And the Shocks have him around for 3 more years.

              • Wichita State cross country gets its first big road testof the season when it competes in Pre-National Invitational in Madison, Wis., on Saturday. Nine ranked teams are in the men's field, led by No. 2 BYU and No. 4 Portland.

                "This meet is always a meet that gives us a very true indication of who we really are," coach Kirk Hunter said. "You can feel good about your season because of the way you, maybe, performed in some smaller meets. Until you really line up against the best, you don't know. This is our first opportunity to show if we really are as a good as we think we are."

                Wichita State's men's team is a balanced group that must run as a pack to move up the team standings.

                • The Shocks finished 30th out of 34 teams in the White Race at the Pre-Nationals in Madison, Wisconsin. Hard to compare XC times because courses and conditions can vary so much form race to race In XC but only Soph. Clayton Duchatscheck improved on his 8K XC best and he did that 15 seconds. However, all the other Shocks in the best 8K times.

                  The goShockers.com recap shows Ethan Kossover time in the Gray Race at 25:15.6 but according to the results page it was actually 26:15.6.

                  Not sure this bodes well for the Shocker men heading into the AAC Championships on Thursday, October 25th in New Orleans but you never know for sure what the team's goals were and what they were focusing on in this ace.
