The Daily Brief

KU Bookstore Clearance Dot Sale Extended 

KU Campus Store - We've extended our clearance event through the month of June! Stop by in-store to grab your KU gear for summer spirit days. Discounted while supplies last.

(Weather forecasts are provided by KU's Dr. Michael Davis and "Monsoon Mike" Regensburger)

Should hopefully return to at least partly sunny skies today as weak high pressure moves in for today and tomorrow. Still can't rule out an instability shower or two, however. Highs around 70. Soft west breezes.




(Historical facts have been compiled from the KU Archives and Special Collections of the Rohrbach Library; the archives of the Keystone; Kutztown Patriot, Allentown Leader and Reading Eagle; and Beacon on the Hill by Dr. Lee Graver.)

4x800M Relay Team Wins PSAC Title
Kutztown University's men's 4x800m relay team made history for the second straight year at the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Outdoor Track & Field Championships. Last year, a school-record was set. Saturday, that record was broken again in a title-winning run at Mansfield University. The quartet of Naeb Mengisteab, Devonte King, Andrew Thompson and Jared Luckanitz turned in the best relay of their careers Saturday. They won the race by more than two seconds with a final time of 7:45.28, breaking last year's school-record that Mengisteab and Thompson were a part of in a second-place run.
