The USA Today says many are calling Akron's recruiting class the MAC's best.

I've heard the Zips soon will be featured in a New York Times article. The slant probably is the team's connection to LeBron James.


The first day of the Akron Open concluded this evening. Some Akron highlights...

  • Jenna Strouse and Stevi Large were Nos. 1 and 2 respectively in the women's discus throw, which is normally only an outdoor event.

  • Austin Papay and Randall Hafner were Nos. 1 and 2 respectively in the men's discus throw, also normally an outdoor event.

  • Jen Osborn was sixth in the 14-participant women's indoor pentathlon.

  • After the first day of the men's heptathlon, Weston Lott and Nick Continenza are fifth and sixth respectively.

Pittsburgh and Buffalo look like they had a strong Day 1 as well.

By the way, Strouse was named MAC Female Scholar-Athlete of the Week.
