2018 T & F

Recommended Posts

The Zips were picked to sweep the Mens and Womens titles in indoor Track and Field, and if you want to see something kinda cool this weekend, Saturday is the Pole Vault Convention, the 6th since its inception, and of course Akron has produced a world champion, a few NCAA champions, and many National team vaulters from Germany, England and the U.S.  The Elite competition is Saturday night at 7, and then on Sunday there is a full collegiate indoor meet to kick off the home season, starting at 3 pm.  Too early for great performances, but lots to showcase for the season.

Kind of a low key affair this past weekend, T & F held their first Open Meet to coincide with the Annual Pole Vault Convention, but some nice results.  On the women's side Dara Perry had a nice 60 dash, and it looks like having Olympian Bridget Franek on the staff is paying off in the distances, with Haley Hess winning the mile, Ashley Murray taking the 3,000 and freshman Lean Recker winning the 800.  Multis talent Jackie Siefring got some workout in the individual events and won the long jump, and Olivia Snyder took the win in the shot put.  Lucy Bryan is a real class vaulter and placed 3rd in the Elite group.

 

Taron Slone took the 200 on the men's side, while Garret Crichlow won the mile, Freshman Marc Migliozzi won the 3k and Preston Fillman took home a double with wins in the 60 Hurdles and the Long Jump.  NCAA finalist Curtis Richardson got the season off with a nice win in the high jump and NCAA champ Matt Ludwing won the Elite PV in a jump off against former Zip and World Champion  Shawn Barber.  One of the Zips Football team members OL Nick Fazio threw int he weights, but no sign of Jovann Letuli or Kwadarrius Smith...too early to get them back in if they come at all.

Zippys do well at U of Kentucky Invitational on weekend, with Matt Ludwig winning the pole vault, Lucy Bryan taking second in the PV, Mackenzie Andrews in 2nd in the 3K.  Kwadarius Smith was at 6.72 in the 60, 3rd fastest Zip time ever.  Andrews time was 2nd fastest in the nation this season, and Ludwig's vault 2nd best in nation as well.  Dual with Portage Community College this Friday at Kant State, Wagon Wheel points achievable.
