Hannon wins school's first-ever KU Relays crownAaron Hannon

LAWRENCE, Kan. - Baker University junior Aaron Hannon became the first Wildcat athlete to ever win an event at the Kansas Relays on Thursday afternoon, taking the decathalon with a career-best 6,948 points.

Hannon outdistanced Nebraska's Teran Walford (6,785) and Arkansas State's Taylor Short (6,413).

 

“It means a lot to have a little school like Baker come in here and compete well, because we are trying to build up our track program the last few years,” said Hannon, who won the 100, 400 and javelin and was second in the 110 hurdles, shot put and long jump. “It is really fun to win at the KU Relays because my family was able to get out here, and just being so close to Lawrence my whole life, it’s really exciting to win it,” Hannon said.

The Relays continue from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. today and again from 8 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. Saturday at Memorial Stadium.
