FSU Seminole women third in cross country

The FSU women's cross county team finished third at Monday's NCAA championship meet.

Susan Kuijken was second in 19:35 to three-time champ Sally Kipyego and ran a personal record time by two seconds for the 6K.

Kipyego of Texas Tech won her third straight women's title, and top-ranked Washington captured the championship.

Florida finished 17th.

For the FSU men, who were without top runner Luke Gunn for undisclosed reasons, the 10K race didn't go as well as hoped. FSU tied for 26th out of 31 teams. Oregon's Galen Rupp overtook Liberty's Sam Chelanga to win the men's title, and the Ducks took their second consecutive championship.

Football: Snyder back to 'soothe the waters'

MANHATTAN, Kan. — Three years after handing off a successful Kansas State program to Ron Prince, Bill Snyder was hired to take charge of the school he transformed from college football's biggest losers to national championship contenders. Prince was fired this month but is completing the season.

"The Kansas State family is in flux right now," said Snyder, 69. "I want to be able to soothe the waters. I've learned some lessons, and there are some things I will do to encompass my family."

Snyder signed a five-year contract for total compensation of about $1.85-million annually, athletic director Bob Krause said. Krause said he had made no offers to anyone else.

"We anticipate he will coach as long as he is able to coach and is successful in coaching," he said.

Snyder said of the media disclosing the news Sunday: "I think that's sad, and also disrespectful.''
