The men made a heckuva comeback today to overcome Kent State and Youngstown State in the Northeast Ohio Invitational.
They sat in third place after Friday's events. In the end, Akron beat second-place Kent State, 219 to 139.
The women remained strong, winning over second-place Kent State, 217 to 148.
Here are some key performances that allowed the men to rebound:
- Cadeau Kelly - won the triple jump and long jump for the men
- Mike Meditz - snapped a 27-year-old school record, winning the 400-meter hurdles
- John Russell - big surprise, huh? He pole vaulted his highest mark this season at 18-00.50
The Zips look pretty hopeless heading into next weeks MAC Championships.
Akron (5-15, 1-7 MAC) lost to Miami today, 7-0.
Some good news: Coach Tony Fox is using mostly underclassmen. So the team is bound to improve.
OK. If you don't have a sense of humor, stop reading here. Go visit ZipsNation or turn on the Indians game.
I just discovered something amazing. Coach Fox is a spitting image of actor Carl Weathers.
