SHOT PUT

Doug Knop’s entrance into the 60-foot club gave Kansas the distinction of being the first school with three putters- – ever, not just in one meet or a single season. None is a senior. Neal Steinhauer reinjured his back while weight training but was training again by March 1 after two-week layoff. George retains his amateur status since he hasn’t received a bonus from the Cardinals. John Van Reenen’s 1969 (and all-time) indoor bests of 63 ‘5″ and 198 ‘6″ both are worth 987 points on the Portuguese Scoring Tables.
