Swimming and diving
Katie Carter joined Danielle Beland as a MAC Champion this weekend. Carter won the 3-meter dive. Megan Walters, along with Beland and Carter, was named to the All-MAC First Team. Sixteen athletes were given that honor. Melissa Young was Akron's only Second Teamer.
I was a little surprised not to see the Zips or Flashes games on the front page of the Beacon's sports page today. Both were important games, important enough that one was nationally televised and the other went out to the whole region. In my humble opinion, that is a bad choice.
Still, I think fans have little to complain about. Tom Gaffney has been the best Zips beat reporter I can remember. Also, the games have been featured more prominently than ever before this season.
