Zips season nearly over

By mrasor Published: May 14, 2007

Baseball
Akron added a final home game to the schedule.
Youngstown State, whom the Zips (21-22, 7-14 MAC) planned to play April 11, will come to town Tuesday before Akron finishes off its season this weekend at Miami (Ohio).
Kent State won this weekend's series at Lee Jackson Field by taking Sunday's rubber match in extra innings. Ryne Romick and Steven Zemanek surrendered a boatload of runs in the 11th inning.
Now that the team has no chance at the postseason, you are excused from paying attention.
Football
Akron extended an offer to Okechuckwu Okoroha, a safety from Maryland.
Forget three times fast, just say his name once if you can.
Okoroha has several offers, including one from Penn State, which made him cry in happiness upon receiving it.
I don't expect Akron will beat out the Nittany Lions, along with Boston College and Virginia for the 6-foot, 180-pound prospect, although he only runs a 4.8 in the 40-yard dash.
