Zips finish seventh

By mrasor Published: May 6, 2006


Akron finished the MAC Tournament in seventh place, 41 strokes behind champion Kent State.

A bright spot: Freshman Vaughn Snyder finished 15th overall with a score of seven-over.

This season has definitely been a surprise. Without its star, Blake Sattler, and with a brand-new coach Akron's hopes looked bleak. Still, the team did something it hadn't in several years by winning the Bradford Creek Invitational.

Next year, the young core will have another year under its belt and Sattler will return.


The Zips' tune up for the MAC Championships went well.

Fourteen athletes won their events and the team set a total of eight NCAA regional-qualifying marks.

Unfortunately, sprinter Howard Harris finished just 0.03 seconds from qualifying for regionals.


The Zips fell to Ohio, 5-2.

The teams will play tomorrow at 1 p.m.

Unless the Zips go nearly undefeated in their six remaining conference games, it looks unlikely they will make the six-team double-elimination tournament. You can take a look at the MAC standings to see what I mean.


The Zips lost their second-to-last regular season game today to Eastern Michigan, 2-1.

The Eagles and Zips have identical MAC records of 13-8.

Both teams will conclude their regular seasons tomorrow at 1 p.m.

The Zips still don't know who they will play to open the eight-team, double-elimination MAC Tournament. Their first game will be Wednesday.
