The time has come. Last year, Akron lost to Western Michigan in the quarterfinals of the MAC Tournament.
This year should be different. I have 26 reasons why. However, you will have to pick up a copy of the Buchtelite to see that list. I forgot to e-mail myself the PDF, and it's not on the Buchtelite's Web site.
Hixenbaugh also wrote about Natalie Sako, John Russell and Tomasz Smialek, who are going to the NCAA Championships this weekend.
It's too bad that the basketball tournament is the same weekend as this event.
Swimming and diving
Lastly, the Buchtelite's Andrew Adam wrote about two divers, Melissa Holbach and Katie Carter, who will compete in the NCAA Zone Diving Meet this weekend.
