Katie McClure | Soccer 

Junior forward Katie McClure found the back of the net three minutes into double overtime against Saint Louis to propel Kansas to a 2-1 victory in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, defeating the Billikens for the second time this season.

Her 11th game-winning goal of her career and seventh of the year, Friday’s goal ties McClure at the top of Kansas program history in game-winners in a single season.

Following a second-place finish at the NCAA Midwest Regional, senior Sharon Lokedi qualified for the NCAA Cross Country Championships for the fourth time in her career on Friday.

Finishing the race with a 20:23.0 mark, just 9.5 seconds behind the first-place finisher, Lokedi lead the Jayhawks’ to a seventh-place finish overall, earning herself a fourth All-Region accolade. Lokedi will next run at the NCAA Championships on Nov. 17 in Madison, Wisconsin.
