After day two of the MAC Championships, Akron's men moved to second place while the women retained their hold on first.
Among the highlights were Cadeau Kelley taking first in the long jump and Auston Papay setting a school record in the shot put.
The men trail Kent State by 17 points. The women lead Buffalo by 15.
The Sporting News mentioned J.D. Brookhart in its list of the top five coaches who are 45 and younger.
The magazine also said Brookhart is the 17th-best non-BCS coach.
The MAC added Hartwick College to the conference for only this sport to take the place of the departing IPFW.
This will put the number of teams at six and retain the MAC's automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.
