Daniels and Redwine Claim Top Honors for Kansas Lady Track and Field

After a huge weekend on the track, the Kansas women’s track team picked up a couple more honors on Wednesday. Head coach Stanley Redwine was named head coach of the year, while sprinter Paris Daniels was named female performer of the year.

Redwine earlier this year was named Indoor head coach of the year. He has now won the honor three times. Redwine has been the head coach for 12 seasons at Kansas, with 11 of his athletes picking up individual titles. 117 All-Americans, and five Olympians have gone through the university.

Daniels earned 23 points over the weekend at the Big 12 Conference Outdoor Meet at Waco, Texas. She won the individual 200m dash, took the runner-up position at the 100m run and anchored the women’s 4×100 relay and 4×400 relay.

The Kansas women are ranked number one in the nation, while the Jayhawks men moved into their side of the poll at 22.

Next up for the team is a meet at West Virginia this weekend before the NCAA championships in Austin, Texas over May 23-25th.
