NOTES // It is a busy weekend across the country for Division I track & field programs, as teams gear up for conference championship action. The Kansas Jayhawks, who are competing in one of the fiercest leagues in the NCAA, will head to Ames, Iowa for the 2015 Big 12 Indoor Championships. Twelve of the nation's top-25 teams will be featured between the men's and women's sides with the Jayhawk women looking to finish among the league's top-three teams for the third-straight season.
Christian Garrett is a man of two main paths: faith and basketball. He believes that God has placed him on a journey in life and Garrett takes advantage of each step he's given. His journey began in Los Angeles, California where, as a child, he played every sport possible until basketball captured the heart of the young athlete.
Like his path when running distance events for the Kansas track & field team, Josh Munsch's college career has taken many turns, but those turns weren't as mapped out as the simple lefts he takes when he is on the oval. He has overcome obstacles that would cause most to hang up the spikes, all for his love of running.
