    Baseball

    TCU lost its three-game series against Kansas State with a 6-2 loss Sunday.

    After a 14-4 blowout loss Friday night, the Frogs answered with a 9-0 win over the Wildcats Saturday.

    Despite out-hitting the Wildcats 10-8 Sunday, a two-out base knock from Evan Skoug made it a 6-2 contest and a loss for the Frogs. TCU also hit into three double plays and stranded six runners.

    For the first time this season, the Horned Frogs did not strikeout in the ballgame. It’s the first time since May 2, 2014 against Kansas State that the Frogs have not struck out in a game.

    With the loss, TCU falls to 26-8 overall and 7-5 in Big 12 play. The next game for the Frogs will be Tuesday night at UT Arlington.

    Men’s and women’s track and field 

    The TCU men’s and women’s track and field teams took the title in four events at the Wes Kittley Invitational Saturday at Elmer Gray Stadium.

    On top of the four wins, multiple personal and seasonal-bests were also set. 

    Sophomore Tiffany Terry finished first in the women’s 400 meters. With her seasonal-best time of 53.96 seconds, Terry now ranks third on the NCAA West qualifying list.

    For the men, senior Joshua Washington and freshman Kevin McClanahan both earned their best seasonal or personal times.

    Washington set a personal-best at 46.28 and McClanahan set a seasonal-best time of 47.70 seconds.

    The two also helped earn the title for the 4×400 relay for the Frogs. 

    Next week, the Horned Frogs will head to Waco for the Michael Johnson Classic on Saturday, April 18, at Clyde Hart Track & Field Stadium.

    Women’s golf

    The TCU women’s golf team finished 11th and shot a 306 Saturday in the final round of the SMU/Dallas Athletic Club Invitational.

    The team played at the Bayard H. Friedman Tennis Center in front of the largest crowd this season, 1,707 fans.
