A small, two-year school in the middle of Kansas has been keeping a close eye on the London Olympics. As Kansas Public Radio's J. Schafer reports, Barton County Community College has 11 student athletes competing in the summer games.
So, just how big a deal is it that Barton has 11 former or current athletes at this year's summer Olympics? By way of comparison, the state's two largest four-year schools -- the University of Kansas and Kansas State University -- have a combined total that's less than 11. K-State has six athletes competing in London. KU has four. So... it's a pretty big deal.
