Shortstop, left fielder collide

By mrasor Published: April 21, 2006


Akron had clawed back from a 4-0 deficit at home to Bowling Green before umpires called the game due to two injured ZIps.

Shortstop Ryne Romick and left fielder Brett Savage collided as they both attempted a diving catch.

Thankfully, says the injuries do not appear to be serious.

The Zips and Falcons will complete the game tomorrow, along with playing the regularly scheduled contest.


First it was Cam Yeow, now it's Jermaine Reid.

Both will play professional football in Canada. The Hamilton Tigercats drafted Reid in the second round of yesterday's Canadian Football League draft.

Don't worry, Reid, Akron's 2005 sacks leader, will still play on Akron's dominant defensive line next season.


The good news is the women are leading the Northeast Ohio Invitational.

But the men are third in the five-team event, held on Lee Jackson Field.

In fact, the men (2 points) are getting killed by Kent State (22) and even Youngstown State (6).

The women (20) lead Kent State (8).
