Thu., Apr. 4, 2002, 7:00am
Location: Memorial Stadium Scholarship Suites
Bob Timmons, former track & field and cross country coach at KU, will give us a brief history of the KU Relays. The Relays will be held April 18,19 and 20, featuring the best of high school, collegiate and university talent. First run in 1923, just 2 years after Memorial Stadium was completed, the Relays are a local and national institution, along with the Penn, Texas and Drake Relays. The Relays have fostered a number of KU Olympians, including Glenn Cunningham and Jim Ryun, so come hear about this storied program.

Coach Timmons was head coach at Kansas from 1965 to 1988 and led his teams to 13 Big Eight indoor titles and 14 outdoor titles, as well as 3 NCAA titles.

Programs may be attended by NGSL members only.
