MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia University says a challenge by Arizona Diamondbacks owner Ken Kendrick has helped bring in more than $300,000 for flood-relief efforts in southern West Virginia.

Kendrick is a WVU alumnus. He said last month he would match contributions to the WVU Foundation dollar-for-dollar up to $500,000.

Foundation University Fund director Greg McCracken said in a university news release Tuesday that more than 1,200 donors have contributed to the effort.

Last month’s floods killed at least 23 people in the state.
