Kansas Athletics’ student-athletes thrived in the classroom during the 2020 fall semester, boasting a fall-semester record 3.31 department grade-point average. Additionally, 15 of the teams recorded a GPA of 3.00 or higher, nearly matching the Jayhawks’ 3.00 GPA achieved by every team during the 2020 spring semester.
Kansas men's and women's cross country had 19 student-athletes selected to the Academic All-Big 12 Teams announced by the league office Wednesday. The Jayhawk men had the most amongst the conference with 12 honorees.
The sports of track & field and cross country are two team sports that require athletes to work together to reach a common goal to succeed. For Kansas’ Lisa Lauschke, she has experienced that teamwork as a student-athlete at the University of Kansas and is looking to translate it to the classroom as a teacher, coach and administrator.
Kansas cross country ran its second meet of the 2020 season Saturday morning at the Cowboy Jamboree in Stillwater, Oklahoma. The men finished in fourth place out of 13 teams while the women were sixth among the 14 teams competing.
