A number of former and current University graduate students will soon begin designing and building the Universitys new business school after finalizing contractual details. Two of the primary team leaders for the project are alumni. David Broz is the firm-wide Education Practice Leader for Chicagobased company Gensler and Associates, and Kevin Harden is principal Broz and owner of Gastinger Walker Harden + Bee Triple Buck of Kansas City, Mo. More than 20 graduates are employed through the two firms. We try to encourage and get as many alumni as possible working on our project teams it wont be 100-percent KU alum, Harden said, but a Harden good majority of those people will be. Broz and Harden have both served on the School of Architectures advisory board for more than a decade. They both have a deep attachment to their alma matter and are pleased to work alongside alumni and interns. Its a pretty amazing opportunity. Its a chance to make a difference on the campus that Ive lived on and grown to love over the years, Broz said. To build a building that not only responds to the current economic situation but also all the ups and downs that happen in business, its a very responsible project to be part

The School of Business will be upgrading to a new building soon. Two architectural firms have been chosen to design a $60 billion building that will be located on Naismith Drive across the street from Allen Fieldhouse. of. The two firms were recently awarded the contract to build the new business school by a University committee who chose Gensler and GWH over four other major companies. The University identified a need for more space not just in the business school but also in other departments. Genslers reputation for innovation and efficient use of space when designing buildings for academic use was an important factor in the committees decision. The School of Business Dean Neeli Bendapudi explained the choice. The current business Bendapudi facility cannot accommodate the growth of the program. We currently arent able to accept all the high-quality students who want to study business at KU, Bendapudi said. The new building will allow us to adapt to the rapidly changing business landscape including recruiting and retaining top faculty, staff and students. Architect and Director of Design and Construction Management Jim Modig said that the final contract details should be worked out soon, and the teams will commence their work shortly thereafter. There arent very many projects on campus that we dont have KU alumni involved. I think theyll bring a sense of pride and ownership, Modig said. We look for the best and not all the time do

Construction causes inconvenient commute

Cody kuiper Changes in summer bus routes and construction on campus are forcing students to alter their plans when it comes to their commute to summer classes. Andrew Humphreys, the transportation coordinator for KU Parking and Transit, thinks the renovations to Jayhawk Boulevard will be the biggest concern for students trying to get to campus. Jayhawk Boulevard being closed is definitely inconvenient, he said. I would imagine alternate forms of transportation other than driving are being used more often now just because you cant drive up on Jayhawk Boulevard. However, changes like these havent deterred students from riding the bus. According to KU Parking & Transit, last week an average of 702 people per day took the 11 route to campus, which is slightly higher than the first week of the 2012 summer semester. Ryan Herold, a senior from Chicago, has been forced to do the opposite. He said he was looking forward to riding a bike to his classes this summer, rather than making the 10-minute drive from the Connection apartment complex, 3100 Ousdahl Road, but the construction caused him to put his plans on hold. Its kind of a mess up there right now, he said. Usually it would be easier to ride a bike, but with the construction, its just more of a hassle for me than it is convenient, so I just park at the Rec or other lots. Heather Brandenburg, a junior from Minocqua, Wis., usually makes the 15-minute walk to campus from her house, but she said the changes in bus routes for the summer havent left her many other options. I usually walk, but those days when I dont want to, I cant ride the bus because I never know what time to catch it or where its going to be, she said.

From 1952 until 1999, the KU track and field uniforms were pink and light blue. As the story goes, the colors were chosen so that runners would be more easily recognized when finishing races.

New Apple software features gaudy design


Whats playing on your iPod this summer?

Follow us on Twitter @UDK_ Opinion. Tweet us your opinions, and we just might publish them.

f you dont follow Apple news as religiously as I do, you may be surprised to hear that the tech colossus just announced a complete software overhaul for the iPhone and iPad called iOS 7, revealing a florid design decorated with translucent panes, garish colors, and cheesy animations. Despite the fanboy fueled convivial reaction to the announcement, there is an ominous subtext to the change: Apple is on the defensive. Evidence of Apples defensive posturing stems from its imitation of other familiar user interfaces. It isnt hard to notice the immediate impression of iOS 7 is very reminiscent of Android. The user interface is laced with references to Android including sleek edges, translucency,

By William Ashley

and flat icons, all of which were found in Jellybean. App developer Sebastiaan De With summed it up nicely by describing it as overHelveticated. Furthermore, the most hyped features of the new OS (multitasking, Siri updates, Control Center) could have been implemented without all the fancy android-esque niceties. Apple has traded a clean, suave design for gaudy gradients

galore. Jony Ive, the bad seed at Apple who is responsible for these changes, has launched a crusade against Skeuomorphic design (the life like design features that have been the hallmark of Apple products for decades.) The finely textured linen of the notification center, the pine green felt of Game Center and the leather binding of the Calendar are all gone without a trace. Craig Federighi spoke flippantly about running out of felt for the Game Center and wood for iBooks during the presentation, a clear indication of a state of enmity with this design style. But in doing so, Apple has made iOS so unrecognizable from the previous generations that one might confuse it for a bootleg iPhone found in China. Ive has

made a cartoonish parody of the old operating system, losing decades of instant product identification in the process. Why does this matter? Apples gesture is in stark contrast to the paradigm the company has held since its inception: innovation, not imitation. Public discord over the blandness of the iPhone 5 compared to the freshness of the Galaxy S III seems to have forced Apple to capitulate to the demands of the consumer. Regardless, this might just be what Apple needs something to energize their base and attract new customers. At the very least, maybe they will pick up some die-hard Android fans by accident.

Wiretapping necessary in certain situations

By Mikaela Wefald

@UDK_Opinion Ill be streaming @965TheBuzz on my iPod, Save the buzz, yall!

hen Edward Snowden, a former CIA employee, revealed to the American public the extent to which the government was watching them, most responded in outrage. The government has had numerous judges to issue search warrants to record telephone conversations and other forms of communication, which means that most of the conversations you thought were private may not have been. Opponents of this surveillance claim that the NSA has violated the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, which prohibits domestic wiretapping unless authorized by a judge, saying that there was no probable cause in many of these cases. The government has

defended its actions as legal and necessary for the safety of this country. Opponents of the NSAs actions are not making the claim that all wiretapping is bad. In fact, it can be necessary to apprehend criminals. The argument is that the scope of wiretapping needs to be narrowed, which can be achieved by increasing the requirements for obtaining a warrant for a wiretap. Currently the court established by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, which is in charge of authorization, can grant a warrant if there is probable cause of communicating with a

foreign person. This means that if you know anyone who was born outside of this country, and you have ever called them, then those calls could be recorded. This has made it easy for the government to obtain phone records, which has led to the loss of privacy of about 100 million Americans. Loopholes in the law made to identify and capture domestic terrorists have not been noticeably effective at capturing our enemies, and violated many innocent peoples privacy. However, its important to remember why these laws exist in the first place. The NSAs job is to keep America safe from foreign and domestic threats. Is it really prudent to limit their ability to fight terrorism and

other crimes? It seems illogical that it would be necessary to spy on millions of Americans now, because the American public feels safe. But the reason why America is safer now may very well be because of the NSAs efforts. Perhaps they went too far with the extent of their wiretapping, but we also need to remember that nothing bad has happened as a consequence of the violation of our privacy. If one weighs the potential risks, it seems more logical to allow some of the NSAs actions to continue than to risk another terrorist attack on American soil. Wefald is a sophomore from Manhattan.

Man of Steels strength lies in heros humanity

ow do you take a character as timeless as Superman and make him timely? Thats the question raised by Zack Snyders Man of Steel, a viscerally and emotionally satisfying reboot that takes a calculated risk by redefining nearly every aspect of the Superman mythos with the exception of Superman himself, who remains, as he must, a paragon of unassailable virtue: the high-flying, cow-licked antidote to a world hardened by sorrow and cynicism. The result is the traditional superhero myth writ large: a four-color fable of fathers and sons where the expected bouts of skyscraper-shattering action are underscored by a genuine sense of majesty and reverence for one of the most beloved origins in comics. The film opens during the final mo ments of Supermans homeworld of Krypton, a once-great empire whose lust for resources has led to the destabilization of its planetary core.Taking advantage of his peoples desperation, the fanatical General Zod (Michael Shannon, sporting a Caesar cut to go with his permanent scowl), stages a bloody military coup, prompting his one-time ally Jor-El (a magnificent Russell Crowe) and his wife Lara (Ayelet Zurer) to send their newborn son Kal-El, the future Supes, to a backwater planet called Earth in an escape pod uploaded with the Codex, a device containing the genetic makeup of every Kryptonian bloodline. The pod crash-lands near a small Kansas farmhouse owned by Jonathan and Martha Kent (Kevin Costner and Diane Lane), who name the child Clark and raise him as their own. The plot then shifts to Lois Lane (Amy Adams), re-imagined here as a Pulitzer-winning, tough-as-nails war correspondent hot on the trail of a mysterious do-gooder who performs miraculous rescues before vanishing into thin air. Her investigation ultimately leads her to Clark (Henry Cavill, the newest Brit to play an American icon), now fully grown and on the verge of uncovering his destiny. Their relationship, less a romance than a

Legendary pictures

plea for discretion, is interrupted by the arrival of Zod and his followers, whose decades-long pursuit of the Codex has finally led them to Earth. Although the resulting clash be tween Superman and Zod leads to a seismic, Metropolis-leveling brawl that ups the ante for all future superhero showdowns (think The Matrix Revolutions finale on visual steroids), the real strength of Man of Steel rests on its ability to tug on its heros cape (and our heartstrings) through its portrayal of Clarks upbringing, particularly the firm moral grounding the Kents instilled in their adopted son. Costner, an actor known for embodying blue-collar wisdom, gives his least egotistical performance in years as a father who simply wants to protect his child from the burden of protecting everyone else. One of the films most poignant scenes involves a pre-adolescent Clark barricading himself in the janitors closet after his X-Ray vision causes him to catch a glimpse of his classmates vital organs. Martha appears on the other side of the door and calms him down by asking him to block out everything else but the sound of her voice. Never has the humanity of a superhuman seemed so pronounced and relatable. This also speaks to the idea of Superman as the ultimate outsider, an immigrant from the stars who fights crime not out of rage (Batman) or guilt (Spider-Man) but rather a deep and abiding sense of compassion, a quality that makes him unique among superheroes (and most of us in general). Not everything works. Although the scenes themselves are quite powerful, screenwriter David S. Goyers decision to show Clarks childhood

entirely in flashbacks robs the narrative of a good deal of its forward momentum, leaving the second act feeling rushed and disjointed before the reappearance of Zod. He also inexplicably omits a scene that, to me, represents the keystone of the entire Superman legend: the discovery of baby Clark by Jonathan and Martha. Imagine if Batman Begins had ne-

glected to show us the death of Bruce Waynes parents! Fanboy kvetching aside, Man of Steel is the biggest and best Superman movie to date, deftly balancing action and emotion while laying the groundwork for some potentially awesome sequels, including the longprophesied Justice League film. In the meantime, though, Snyder

deserves credit for bringing Superman into the 21st century with his optimism and nobility fully intact. In doing so, he has made a film that understands why we still need to believe a man can fly.

Childhood memories inspire Brooklyn bands indie lyrics

Sarah Noonan Forget the pressures of adulthood and imagine jumping into a pile of leaves. Go back 15 years to when cell phones were foreign, Facebook didnt exist and scattering Moms freshly made mountain of orange and brown plant matter was the highlight of the day. These lighthearted memories of childhood wonderment and discovery are the inspiration for the up-and-coming indie rock band, A Great Big Pile of Leaves. The Brooklyn-based band guitarist/singer Pete Weiland, drummer Tyler Soucy, guitarist Matthew Fazzi and bassist Tucker Yaro started their pursuit of music touring with Motion City Soundtrack in 2007 and have since gained a significant following and respectable fan base. Yaro, who is also the back-up singer, said touring can be exhausting from the mix of hotels, fast food and driving months in a van, but the powerful friendship between him and his band members is their competitive advantage. We are all very close friends, Yaro said. That is our secret weapon for touring. Any trip is going to be horrible with people you dont like. Being considerate to one another can make this excruciating lifestyle very rewarding. Ali Mackenzie, a senior from Santa Fe, N.M., has been a dedicated fan since purchasing its first album, Have You Seen My Prefrontal Cortex? and attending its fall 2010 concert in New York. Im picky when it comes to music, Mackenzie said. A Great Big Pile of Leaves has this organic sound thats almost addicting. They are the obscure poppy side of indie rock, which makes their live performances different from any other Ive seen. A Great Big Pile of Leaves will release its second album, Youre Always on My Mind, in July. The meaningful lyrics are a mix of personal experiences with psychological theories. The bands tour begins in Lawrence on July 23 at Jackpot Saloon, 943 Massachusetts St., and will continue to venues in Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles and New York.

This tour and album release will test our ability, Tucker said, but at the end of the day, were just doing what we love to do make music. Edited by Megan Hinman

Co-op food truck serves organic, vegan menu

Emma Legault
What has savory breakfast tacos, hearty breakfast burritos and four wheels? The Blissful Bite food truck does, and it is slowly but surely making a name for itself in the community. Until the fall of 2012, Anil Kamat, who built the truck, was handling everything on his own. When the delicate balancing act of time management and business responsibilities started to topple and he decided to move to California, one of his employees, Jason Hering, stepped in. He and five others that shared a dream of creating a co-operative business venture connected with Anil, and the truck was gifted to them through a collective ownership. Its miraculous that it came into our hands the way it did, said Tristan Landwehr, member of the Blissful Bite co-op. Although its a mobile operation, the truck has a stronghold at the Farmers Market at Eighth and New Hampshire streets. Their selection of organic, gluten-free and vegan breakfast burritos, tacos and mini pancakes are favorites among the Saturday morning crowd. The co-op is dedicated to incorporating Kamats original vision of providing healthy, delicious food with their vision of a successful, collectively owned business. Together, the six handle every aspect of the business, from accounting to inventory, and each person has a voice. That changes the dynamic entirely of how much control you have over something and what kind of influence you have, Hering said. Landwehr, who has wanted to be an entrepreneur since childhood, said the co-op is an ideal blend of being in charge and sharing the workload. Hes a part of all of the processes and not restricted to the kitchen. I get to have a say in a lot of different aspects, but I also get to share the responsibility while getting to have responsibility, he said. When asked what the food truck has taught him, plumbing and electrical systems were first to come to mind. The co-op and the trucks success are built by balancing trust, communication and learning. Its not always easy; after all, this isnt a group of seasoned food truck professionals. It was kind of a big jump for all of us to start a business together and start taking care of all of the operations, Landwehr said. Its a big learning process. Its a team-building exercise in and of itself, Hering said. The Blissful Bite isnt permitted to set up downtown due to city regulations, but as a member of the county Food Policy Council and by working with other officials, Herring hopes to change that soon. In the future, Hering sees the truck having regular lunch spots at larger institutions, such as hospitals or schools, to give dull cafeteria food or fatty vending machine lunches a run for their money. He also hopes to be at 11th and Massachusetts streets a couple days a week. In addition to prepping and laying out logistics for each event, the co-op explores new recipes and menu

options. Hering said theyre trying to branch out from the comfort of their Farmers Market breakfast menu. One of Landwehrs favorites to make is the Hassome Avocado, which is a melt-in-your mouth avocado half with a sweet relish of beet, lime juice, and tamarind, garnished with sesame seeds and an amino acid blend. Hering likes their new kale chips and the hearty, refreshing Haymakers Punch. The produce used is organic and some comes from the Willing Horse Farm, a local horse-powered farm the

group co-manages. Just to be able to have organic produce and really delicious, healthy options is something thats important to show that vegetarian food doesnt have to be an iceberg lettuce salad, Hering said. Its all about a greater awareness and appreciation for foods people wouldnt normally put on their plates. We make it in a different way to make it really tasty and appealing and then hopefully that brings that into their food recognition, Hering said. Edited by Megan Hinman

Moving home becomes trend for recent grads

Ashleigh tidwell

Graduation: Its supposed to be a grand step out into the real world. However, the job market has many grads moving back into their parents home instead of into their own place. Recent graduate Hannah Rutzick is spending time at home to save money. Rutzick, a human biology major from Plymouth, Minn., moved back into her childhood bedroom and began training as a CNA while awaiting acceptance into medical school. Grad school is very expensive, so living at home for now is allowing me to save up money to help pay for those costs later on, Rutzick said. Its nice because I dont have to pay rent like I did in college. The Economic Policy Institute reports that the unemployment rate for recent graduates is 8.8 percent. Consequently, those students are going back home until they can secure a full-time job. This trend has led the generation to be nicknamed the boomerang

generation. In 2012 the Pew Research center reported that 45 percent of young adults ages 18 to 24 move back in with their parents after graduation. Leticia Gradington, program director of Student Money Management Services, said that moving back home is an excellent option for graduates who havent yet found a job. She said it is an opportunity to become financially stable, but recent grads should also use the time and extra money to prepare for life on their own. If you want to go back home, thats cool, Gradington said. But you cant stay there, so you have to have a plan. Gradington said that moving back home shouldnt be seen as an oppor-

tunity to live off of mom and dad. Its an opportunity to make yourself more marketable for a career in your field. However, moving home is not for everyone. Tyler Hogstrom, a communications major from Chicago who also graduated in May, considered the benefits of moving home before ultimately deciding against it. I thought it might be a good way to be able to pay back a large chunk of my student loans within one year, Hogstrom said. But I didnt think I could move back in with people who were going to try to make rules for me. Edited by Allison Kohn

Sarah Noonan The unconditional love for and from a dog cant be matched. From the puppy eyes to the wagging tail, college students fall hard for mans best friend, but some forget to weigh the costs. Justin Wesley, a senior from Fort Worth, Texas and a forward on the Kansas basketball team, had every intention of finding companionship. After tweeting to his 10,000 followers looking to adopt a puppy, Wesley found the response he was aiming for an eight-week-old German Shepherd-Rottweiler mix. What he didnt anticipate was the rude awakening of taking care of something other than himself. It was immediate love between him and I, Wesley said. But I ran into problems pretty quickly with the Jayhawk Towers no pets policy and the lack of time I had to spend with him from traveling, games, practices and school. Dori Villalon, executive director of the Lawrence Humane Society said some students fail to examine the costs of owning a dog before adopting, which is the first and most important step. Students are offered so much during their college years, Villalon said. From moving in with friends, studying abroad or that spontaneous weekend trip, its a lot to handle. These are important considerations when deciding to adopt because many landlords dont accept pets. After a month of searching, Elyse Wilson, a senior from Olathe, just recently signed a lease with the petfriendly Tuckaway apartments, 2600 W. Sixth St. Her 9-month-old French bulldog is the love of her life, and giving him up for a place to live was not an option. At first, every place I looked did not allow pets, especially the apartments near campus, Wilson said. I didnt realize how difficult it would be to find an apartment I liked and a landlord who wouldnt kick me out for having a dog. Other than finding a place to live, the initial costs of adopting a dog, such as the $150 to $500 adoption fee, the $200 or higher cost of


a veterinarian visit and the monthly cost of about $50 for dog food and toys is a surprise to many students, Villalon said. And depending on the dog, the replacement fees for chewed furniture, broken glassware and missing socks can add up as well. Another thing to consider is traveling home during breaks, Villalon said. If you need to fly, taking your dog on a plane will require a Health Certificate and will cost anywhere from $150 to $500 one way. Wesley said that the companionship of owning a dog has made the cost and inconveniences worthwhile. No matter what time it is or type of mood Im in, my dog is always there for me at the end of the day, Wesley said. They love you more than themselves, and that is more than I could ask for.

The 2013 womens track and field team captured the first womens national championship in school history. They also led the entire NCAA with 16 first team All-Americans, the most by any school this season. Senior Paris Daniels was one of seven women to be named an All-American in three events. The Kansas women that were named for the first time include junior Natalia Bartnovskaya and sophomore Lindsay Vollmer. The team also featured the first All-America 4x100 relay team in school history, composed of junior Diamond Dixon, senior Denesha Morris, freshman Tianna Valentine and senior Paris Daniels. Senior Andrea Geubelle has been named an All-American 12 times, the most in school history, after earning honors in both the long jump and triple jump. The womens track and field team started in 1973, many years after the inception of the mens program. During this time, Marian Washington, a prominent figure in Kansas athletics, served as the first and only womens athletic director from 1974-79, as well as the womens basketball coach. In its history, womens track and field has had numerous accomplished athletes, including the first time All-American in womens track and field history, Anne Grethe Baeraas, who was a three-time All American.

Heptathlete wins individual national title

Max goodwin As he sat at the front of a room of reporters, assistant track coach Wayne Pate grasped for the words to explain the national title winning performance of sophomore Lindsay Vollmer in the heptathlon. Its just a blessing really, Pate said. She may never have those two days back to back again. After four decades and more than a thousand women competing for Kansas track and field, there had never been an outdoor national champion in the schools history. And yet, while Kansas arrived at the championships with several women expected to contend for a title, Vollmer was certainly not one of them. A day after the meet had finished, a reporter asked her coaches if Vollmer was seen as a national title contender going into the meet. Pate couldnt help but let out a slight laugh before asking his own question. Are you kidding me? Pate said, Im still in shock. We all are. Wearing her game face As Vollmer arrived at Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore. for the NCAA track and field national championships on June 6, she felt nervous, an emotion that is mostly foreign to the sophomore when it comes to track and field. Vollmer goes into a typical meet expecting to do great things. You need to have that confidence, she said. It wasnt so much that the confidence had disappeared on this morning at the University of Oregon, as it was the painful memory of Vollmers last competition at Hayward Field shrouded the certainty. After a great first day at the USA Junior National meet in June of 2011, Vollmer entered the second day of the heptathlon with a solid chance at winning the most important meet in which she had ever competed at the time. A gold medal was within reach, until a pain in Vollmers hip flexor became overwhelming during the long jump. She was forced to withdraw from the competition with no medal at all. The hip injury lingered and strained Vollmer for most of her freshman year as a Jayhawk. On the second day of her first Kansas Relays, she scratched because of her hip flexor, once again. The biggest barrier that Vollmer said she has had to get over was training through pain. Im not going to lie. I was a little nervous going into Eugene, she said, because last time I was there, I had this injury, An old past time For Vollmer, being at a track and field meet is like being at home. She grew up in Hamilton, Mo., in a house on Highway 36, and she describes Hamilton as a small, country town with small town values. But her home, where she spent hours each day after school, was the Vollmer track at Penney High School, where her father, Mark Vollmer, is still coach. The track facilities at Penney arent great, Vollmer said, but it was a special place for her. Its where she spent hours of one-on-one time with her dad, practicing every event from the high jump to the 800-meter run. Mark also taught her how to throw the javelin, though it wasnt an event in Missouri. At Kansas, the javelin has become one of Lindsays strongest events in the heptathlon. Vollmer entered her first pentathlon when she was 12 years old. In her freshman year of high school, she began competing in heptathlons. After four years, and 11 gold medals at the Missouri state championships, Vollmer graduated from Penney as the valedictorian of the class of 2011. But until Coach Wayne Pate called and asked her to take a visit to Lawrence, Vollmer said she couldnt have imagined attending Kansas. But Pate managed to convince her. I gave it a shot, Vollmer said, I visited other schools too, but when I came to KU, I knew instantly that this is where I wanted to be. The coaches just had a desire to win. As a multi-event athlete, Vollmer trains with all of the coaches on coach Stanley Redwines staff, but she spends the most time with coach Pate. On the days when Vollmer says she was tired, sore and wanted to quit practicing, her coaches told her that the work would pay off one day, that being able to withstand the pain and soreness would eventually make her stronger. Our coaches at KU expect nothing less than hard work, Vollmer said, they dont tolerate slacking off at all, which I appreciate because theres always those days. On June 7, when Vollmer crossed the finish line of the 800 meters, the final of seven events, she understood what her coaches meant when they said it would all be worth it one day, even if they thought that day was still a couple years away. Competing in seven events in two days can take a serious toll on the body, but those days when the pain was too much to bear were now a distant memory. One for the record books Vollmer set a personal record in six of the seven events at the national meet. Her score of 6,068 points in the heptathlon is a new school record, and ranks 10th on the all-time NCAA list. This feels unbelievable, Vollmer said in Oregon. I never imagined I would be accomplishing something like this so early in my career. The Kansas coaches give credit to Vollmer for being an extremely hard worker, but she gives them, and others, the credit for making her strong enough to work hard. Ive had such great support from my teammates, coaches and family, she said. This is as much theirs as it is mine. Edited by Megan Hinman

Championship rewind
The Jayhawks remained a dominant presence throughout the meet. Here is a summary of their national title sweep.
Max goodwin Wednesday, June 5 The Kansas women earned 17 points and ended the first day of competition at the top of the standings. Senior Andrea Geubelle had the best finish of the day for the Jayhawks in the long jump by placing second and gaining eight points for the team score. Geubelle leaped 21 feet 4 in. in the finals, but couldnt top Lorraine Ugen of TCU. Senior throwers Heather Bergmann and Alena Krychek also added one point to the total. Krychek threw 223 ft., and earned a third place finish. Bergmann threw the javelin for a personal record of 167 ft. on her last collegiate throw, finishing in eighth place with her third straight year as a first team All-American. Thursday, June 6 Kansas was able to maintain its first place lead. The Jayhawks qualified for the finals in the 4x400 meter relay while Paris Daniels qualified in the 200 meter dash. Junior thrower Jessica Maroszek took fourth place in the discus with a toss of 183 ft. After two days, the throwers had combined for 14 of the teams 22 points. Sophomore Lindsay Vollmer began her national title heptathlon by ending the first day of competition in third place after four of the seven events. Friday, June 7 The Jayhawks wrapped up the teams national title by ending the day with 48 points, 15 points ahead of second place Oregon. Vollmer won an individual national title in the heptathlon, becoming the first outdoor champion in school history. Vollmer set a personal record in all three events of the day: the long jump, the javelin and the 800 meter dash. Geubelle earned her second runner-up finish of the meet in the triple jump, while junior Natalia Bartnovskya earned a runner-up finish in the pole vault. Saturday, June 8 Daniels competed in the 4x100 meter relay along with freshman Tianna Valentine, senior Denesha Morris and junior Diamond Dixon. The team took fifth with a time of 44.92 seconds. Daniels then ran the 200 meter finals in a time of 22.59 seconds for a fourth place finish. She then returned to the track for a third and final time for the 4x400 meter relay. The team of Daniels, Morris, Dixon and senior Taylor Washington ran the relay in 3:32.74 minutes for sixth place. When the final results were announced, the teammates sang the alma mater, gave coach Stanley Redwine a Gatorade bath and celebrated the first championship for the womens track and field program.

Womens athletics accomplish historic progress

Jenna Jakowatz For more than 100 years, female athletes at the University have been on a mission to add their own national championship to the list of the mens accomplishments. According to the Universitys history website, In the first 26 years of its existence, the University of Kansas did not encourage its women students to participate in any athletic endeavors except as observers. However, in 1903, Dr. James Naismith agreed to coach an intercollegiate womens basketball team for the University. Naismith coached the women to a winning 6-2 record, but its success did not establish a permanent womens basketball team. It did, however, inspire women to continue to push for womens involvement in athletics. Thus, on February 8, 1912, the women of the University who [were] athletically inclined organized the Womens Athletic Association (WAA) with the assistance of physical education instructor Hazel Pratt, the Universitys Historys website notes. Modeled after a similar group at the University of Wisconsin, members of the WAA vowed to keep their bodies physically fit and live up to rules of good sportsmanship. Two years later, co-ed tennis courts and athletic fields opened up, and the women of the WAA were responsible for running high school girls state basketball championships. Although its popularity among the students fluctuated, from the 1920s to the 1950s, the WAA managed to develop an impressive array of athletic clubs and contests. Its most memorable events were the annual intramural sports tournaments, which attracted nearly 1,000 participants, the website notes. In 1974, womens athletics faced a financial obstacle. According to the website, Womens athletic programs at the University remained under the authority of the physical education department until 1974, and simply lacked the funds necessary to initiate anything larger in scope than the traditional intramural competitions. Despite the low funding, the Universitys women continued to compete in athletics. In 1974, the University joined other colleges throughout the country and implemented a program of womens intercollegiate athletics. In 1975, the University gave its first athletic scholarships to women. According to the website, Most of the women who received those scholarships were probably unaware of the enormous debt they owed to the WAA for its efforts to firmly establish a place for female athletes at KU. 101 years after the first women pushed to be included in athletics, outdoor track and field won its national championship, the first womens sport to do so, all because the WAA refused to continue to sit on the sidelines. For more information about the WAA and its history, visit kuhistory. com. Edited by Allison Kohn

tion the way we set it up. Henrickson said having players learn is the overall goal, but its also beneficial for the coaches who attend. Henrickson said that the coaches who attend the camp are able to develop more aspects of the game and help train their own players at the high school level. During the three-day camp, Henrickson and her staff try to instill as much as possible, but the ultimate responsibility for the development is on the players themselves. Henrickson said she loved the group of players that showed up because they are willing to put in the effort to make it at the next level. The energy, the commitment, the coach-ability, it needs to be fun, Henrickson said. If youre working hard and youre enjoying it, it should be fun. Thats all we ask from them, just be open-minded, give us great effort, be coachable and let us expose you to some new things possibly and grow. Mens coach Bill Self hosted his own camp last week.

Ellis said that coming to camps as a high school athlete and hearing stories from players on the team is something that he admitted he took for granted at the time. He said he didnt pay attention while Ellis he attended the camps, but now that hes a member of the Jayhawks, he said hes tried making an emphasis to share what he knows to the current campers. Not only did the campers get a chance to see the new team play on Wednesday, they also got to see a few former players scrimmage the new Jayhawk team. One of the alums in attendance for the scrimmage was Tyshawn Taylor, a former point guard who now plays for the Brooklyn Nets. Taylor said he enjoys camps, and being able to come back and give the kids a show just makes it a little better. I always love to come back to the camps and do this stuff, Taylor said. One of the newest additions to the team, freshman guard Brannen Greene, said the camp atmosphere was what made it even more enjoyable. Whenever you have a bunch of kids in the stands going crazy on every shot, its always fun, Greene said. Edited by Megan Hinman


Cross country, mens basketball recognized for perfect APR scores

Max goodwin The University athletic department released its most recent Academic Progress Rate for the 20112012 school year to the press last week. The report confirmed that the academic standings for each of the 16 University sports are up to the standards of the NCAA. The mens basketball team displayed a perfect APR score of 1,000 once again. The womens cross country team also earned a perfect score for the most recent year, as well as a perfect multiyear rate which measures the past four years. For the mens basketball team, this represents the seventh consecutive year that the program received a perfect academic score. The womens cross country team has received a perfect score of 1,000 for each of the nine years that APR has been recorded by the NCAA. The lowest score of the teams at Kansas for the 2011-2012 school year belonged to the football team, which scored 931 in the first year of Coach Charlie Weis leading the program. The APR is a measurement of eligibility and retention of the athletes in each sport. It includes only those athletes receiving scholarships for their sport. A team with a score below 930 could face potential penalties by the NCAA, which would increase in severity if the score is not improved in following years. Edited by Megan Hinman

Academic Progress Rate

This is a term-by-term measure of eligibility and retention for Division I student athletes that was developed as an early indicator of eventual graduation rates.
