Last season, Akron's men won their first MAC Track and Field Championship in school history, while the women continued with their dominance in the conference with a third-straight title.
This weekend, Akron solidified itself as the conference's elite program. The men and women successfully defended their titles.
The men won by 19 points over Eastern Michigan. The women bested 2nd place Kent State by 40.5 points. Stevi Large (women's) and Daniel Kinsey (men's) won the MAC Outstanding Field Performance awards. Akron's Dennis Mitchell won the MAC Men's Coach of the Year and Women's Coach of the Year awards.
Multiple athletes will compete at the NCAA Regionals, which are held May 29-30 in Louisville, Ky.
Akron finished its season with a 17-9 loss at Bowling Green.
The Zips (19-33, 12-15 MAC) failed to earn a berth in the eight-team MAC Tournament for the fourth-straight year.
