Shocker Brew 9/18: All The Records
Today, a recap of a busy Shockers weekend
Good morning! Wichita State President Richard Muma made a trip this weekend to meet with some of the newest Shocker student-athletes, and the next generation sure is looking like a winning group.
What all are we mixing into today’s Brew?
👟 All The Records
🥎 First Fall Ball
🌾 And much, much more!
📈 STOCK UP
🔼 All the Records. It was a successful meet for Shocker Cross Country as each runner set a personal record at the Greeno/Dirksen Invitational across both men’s and women’s teams.
👟 Lucy Ndungu lead the way for the women’s team in the 5K red division to help her team to a third place finish. Individually, she also came in third place after crossing the finish line in only 17:19.67. Miranda Dick and Lubna Aldulaimi also finished the race with sub-eight minute times.
👟 In their first 8K of the season, the Shocker men’s team finished in third place in the team rankings, and Zander Cobb took the top spot of the group as an individual with an eighth place individual finish with a time of 24:45.98.
🔼 Three For Three. Improving to 6-4 on the season, Shocker volleyball put away the tournament hosts to complete their undefeated run at the Northern Colorado Classic.
Middle blocker Natalie Foster finished with 14 kills in the match on an eye-popping .706 hitting percentage. The Shockers went into the third set of the match tied at one a piece, but the team pulled away quickly and nabbed the victory in four sets in what some are calling the Rocky Mountain Rout.
🔼 Support the Shockers. The main focus of Women of WSU is to raise money for scholarships for WSU students, and over the last few years, the Women of Wichita State has awarded $4,000 each year.
This year, the organization will hold the Vintage Market, where they will be collecting vintage WSU items. The items will be put on a silent online auction from September 27th to October 3rd. All bids are welcome! The Women of Wichita State will accept donations until September 25th.
🤔 SHOCKER TRIVIA
Need for Speed. Lucy Ndungu has put up two impressive times in her first two 5K appearances for the Shockers, but it still isn’t the fastest from a member of the Black and Gold.
Our question today — do you know which former Shocker women’s cross country runner holds the fastest time in a 5K?

🌾 ONE BIG THING
Lauren Howell and the rest of Shocker softball brought out the rakes on a fine fall afternoon as the team put up double-digit runs in a 15-3 victory in the first match of their fall schedule.
The bats were alive and well to start the season. Chloe Barber, Sami Hood, and Camryn Compton finished with over-the-fencers en route to the 12 run victory in the nine inning game.
Next up, the Shockers will face Seminole State for their second exhibition match of the fall.
