Randall Hafner and Stevi Large each earned the MAC Field Athlete of the Week honors.
Both broke records in the weight throw. Hafner shattered the school record. Large set a new conference mark. Pretty amazing.
Large has the best distance in the MAC this season by six feet. Hafner is 11th in the nation for the weight throw.
The Zips open is set for Friday at 6:55 p.m. in the Field House. Then Akron will host the MAC Championships next weekend.
If you haven't seen an indoor track event, I recommend it. I went to one last season (by myself because everyone else declined), but it was entertaining.
The final score between No. 17 Bowling Green and Akron should be no surprise.
The Zips (9-15, 2-10 MAC) lost 91-46 to one of the MAC's best teams in any sport. Akron committed 17 turnovers, which is further evidence this team will be much better once it is able to move Sarah Tokodi to her natural position: shooting guard.
