So far, so good

By mrasor Published: June 7, 2006


For those of you who cannot wait for the report, here are some results from today's preliminaries at the NCAA Championships.

  • Ashley Kaufman is seventh in the women's javelin.

  • Tomasz Smialek is tied for first in the men's high jump.

I don't know for sure, but those look to be good enough marks to make the finals on Friday.


Ross Liesemann became the first Zips athlete selected in the MLB Amateur Draft since 2003 on Tuesday.

The Marlins took Liesemann with their 18th round pick. If you are unfamiliar with the MLB draft, 18th round is still pretty high.

Liesemann proved to be a work horse at Akron, setting career and single-season school records in innings pitched.

Five other MAC players also were selected Tuesday.
