Send flowers to the family from Steve's Floral

Kansas State soccer will play six matches on five dates during its spring schedule, including a preview with a future Big 12 opponent.

K-State starts its slate on April 1 in Tulsa, Oklahoma, with a pair of matches. The Wildcats will face Tulsa at 11:30 a.m. and TCU at 1 p.m. The matches will be abbreviated to 60 minutes in length.

TCU finished the 2016 season with a first round appearance in the NCAA tournament and an overall record of 12-7-2. Tulsa charted an 8-10-1 overall record and a 4-5-0 mark in the American Athletic Conference.

Following a two-week break, the Wildcats return to action at 7 p.m. on April 17 to face the K-State men’s club team at the K-State Soccer Complex.

K-State closes out the week with a trip to the Swope Soccer Village in Kansas City, Missouri, to face Arkansas at 4 p.m on April 22. The match is free and open to the public.

The Razorbacks reached the second round of the 2016 NCAA tournament, falling in penalty kicks to Clemson. Arkansas registered an 18-5-0 record last season.

The spring schedule ends in the Rocky Mountains as K-State faces Colorado on April 29 at noon and Denver at 11 a.m on April 30.

The Buffaloes advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament before falling to South Carolina, 1-0. Colorado tallied an overall record of 15-5-1 in the 2016 season. Denver finished with an 8-92 overall record in 2016.

In K-State’s first season in 2016, head coach Mike Dibbini guided K-State to a record of 4-9-3 and registered 16 goals and 11 assists for a total of 43 points. The program ranked fourth in the nation for average attendance with 2,265 per match and set the NCAA Division I women’s soccer attendance record in the state of Kansas in the program’s first home match with 2,403 supporters. The Wildcats return 17 letterwinners from the inaugural season, including more than 90 percent of their point-scorers from a year ago. K-State also will have the services of four redshirts from the 2016 season: Baylee Bedard, Grace Brennan, Aly Rocha and Steinunn Sigurjónsdóttir.

In addition to the returners and redshirts, K-State welcomes in a 12-member signing class for the 2017 season. The class consists of players from California, Hawaii, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska.

Travel and Leisure calls KSU prettiest campus in state

Send flowers to the family from Steve's Floral

For its limestone buildings and copious green space, K-State was named the “most beautiful college” in Kansas by a national travel magazine.

Travel and Leisure magazine recently released its list of the most attractive campuses in every state.

“Kansas has an impressive number of attractive schools: Friends, Kansas University, and Kansas Wesleyan, just to name a few,” the article reads. “But the oldest public university in the Sunflower State is also our pick for the prettiest.”

K-State joins old and prestigious schools such as Princeton, Yale and Dartmouth on the list. In some states, though, newer institutions, such as Flagler College in Florida and the luxury-cabin-like Sierra Nevada College in Nevada, won out.

The other Big 12 universities were Iowa State, Oklahoma State and the University of West Virginia. In choosing which colleges were selected, the magazine considered setting and scenery, building design and upkeep of the grounds.

“And we took plenty of other details into account, too, including knowledge from campus visits, in-depth virtual tours, first-person references and word of mouth, extensive general research, and hours upon hours of examining campuses from images shot at just about every imaginable angle,” the article’s author, Chris Abell, wrote.
