Akron played its home opener this afternoon in front of a decent crowd.
The Zips beat Cleveland State 6-3 behind a four-run eighth-inning rally.
The Buchtelite's Josh Volchko, a rising sportswriting star, wrote about the inner happenings on the team.
I think it's safe to say Akron now has a respectable golf team.
The Buchtelite's Jeff Thomas discussed what is making it happen. Mainly, it's the philosophy of coach Tom Porten and leadership of Blake Sattler.
(p.s. I'm incredibly jealous these guys are traversing the nation playing golf in exotic locales. And when they come home, aw shucks, they have to play Firestone Country Club. Jerks.)
Akron opens its spring season tomorrow at the outdoor practice field at 4 p.m.
If you remember, coaches banned media and bystanders from summer camp. I don't think the spring will be the same -- at least for the outdoor practices.
I'll have my report from camp sometime tomorrow evening.
