Wichita school district Superintendent Winston Brooks hasn’t shown any love to Wichita State University, lately. Looking for a venue for a future game between East and Southeast high schools, Brooks explained at a Jan. 8 school board meeting why playing at Koch Arena wasn’t a possibility.
“WSU denied us the opportunity to play at Koch Arena,” he said. “At that time they were in the Top 20. Now that they’re not, maybe they’ll reconsider us playing there the second time around.”
The last game between the high schools brought 5,000 fans to the Kansas Coliseum. Since then, WSU has plummeted from 8th in the nation to 8th in the Missouri Valley Conference.
