Today is all about Romeo Travis and Dru Joyce.
Perhaps some celebration should find the women's track team, unquestionably the strongest squad on campus.
They took home a third-straight MAC crown today, overcoming a first-day Western Michigan lead. Coach Dennis Mitchell was awarded with the conference coach of the year award. Stevi Large was the Most Outstanding Field Athlete.
Akron's men took third, which is just about where the Zips were expected to come in.
The Zips overcame the Broncos' lead in the first event when Rachel Zubricky and Larisa Arcip went one-two in the mile run. Other women winners included Corine Gavin-Hall (200 meter), Colleen Moran (3,000 meter), Jessica Miller (pole vault) and Large (weight throw).
The 200 meter was the strongest event for Akron's men. Anthony Thomas and Howard Harris took first and second, respectively. James Howell took home the Zips only other win in the 400 meter.
