The Jayhawks' roster and coaching staff are split today. The 7's side took 12 players and Coach Stewart to the Heart of America round robin over at K-State 100 miles to our west. So far, Jayhawks there lost to Nebraska, but beat Missouri.
Here in Lawrence, the remainder squad led today by senior Ian O'Laughlin (pictured) host the Creighton Bluejays from Omaha, NE. Creighton traveled with a thin roster with only a sub or 2.
The weather is a challenge. It's about 39 degrees. We had a steady light rain over night that only stopped before game time. We have a stiff wind blowing down field from the north. Expect those conditions to shape the style of play.
The pitch conditions are terrific (thank you alumni donors!). The field was worked all last season without play and the club's new aerator have done wonders for the turf.
