Maybe this winning stuff is contagious. The golf team won its first tournament in nine years this weekend in Greenville, N.C. at the 16-team Bradford Creek Intercollegiate.
Freshman Vaughn Snyder was tournament medalist at 2-under. The team was 8-over as a whole. The next closest was St. John's at 15-over.
Remember when I said we will see surprises from sports other than basketball this spring? This is definitely one of them.
Tom Farmer, the Zips started who was roughed up by Ball State last weekend, threw a complete game in Akron's 6-5 win over Northern Illinois on Saturday.
Kurt Davidson also blasted a three-run home run.
The Zips lost the first game, 4-2. The series finale is starting just about now.
Akron dominated in Charlotte this weekend. The Zips broke four school records, won six events and notched 14 NCAA-qualifying marks. Here are some highlights...
The Zips will compete next weekend at the All-Ohio Championships in Columbus. The men and women won that competition last year.
This is a pretty big weekend for Akron athletics. However, it's also something you'll probably never read about in the Beacon Journal or see on the evening news. I don't blame those media sources; unfortunately, it's hard to get fan support for minor college sports.
MACReportOnline.com has some interesting tidbits about last season and next. For example, it talks about a quarterback that transferred to Kent from a juco in California. Julian Edelman looks like a good catch for coach Doug Martin. He will have three years of eligibility.
