Vicky Xu | Swim and Dive

Making program history, senior diver Vicky Xu claimed a first-place finish at the Big 12 Swim and Dive Championships on Saturday, scoring 380.00 in the three-meter dive to secure the victory. With her performance, Xu becomes the only Jayhawk to ever win a conference diving individual championship, and the first of any Kansas swimmer or diver since 2014 to become an individual champion. 

Jonah Ulane | Baseball

With the Jayhawks leading 7-2 in the ninth inning over Northern Illinois, the Huskies loaded the bases with no outs. Redshirt sophomore pitcher Jonah Ulane then took over on the mound and struck out three-consecutive batters to close out the win for Kansas and record his third save on the season in what coach Ritch Price called a special performance for the young pitcher, according to a Kansas Athletics press release.
