AKRON, Ohio – The University of Akron men's track and field team won 10 of 14 events and freshman Shawn Barber set the facility pole vault record as the Zips split their dual meet with local rival Kent State Friday night at Stile Athletics Field House.
 
After setting the school's indoor record a week ago, Barber won the pole vault competition with a jump of 18-02.75, which broke John Russell's six-year facility record of 18-01.00. Barber, who is just the second athlete in school history to clear the 18-foot barrier, then made three attempts at the World Junior record of 18-08.50 but didn't clear it.
 
Barber's record-setting jump was one of a number of strong individual performances that fueled the men to an 80-71 victory over the Golden Flashes Friday. Conversely, the Zips women suffered an 89-62 defeat to KSU despite a huge winning mark by Alexis Cooks in the weight throw and personal-best by Alexandra Wood in the pole vault.
 
Joe Wesley made it a clean sweep for the Zips in the men's pole vault with a personal-record jump of 17-03.00, which was two inches better than his previous career high. It was also one of two 1-2 finishes on the night for the men's team as Daryl Baptiste (23-10.00) and Nate Chronister (22-11.00) picked up eight points for Akron in the long jump.
 
Earlier in the evening, Bryce Cheek, who spent the last two seasons on the Zips football team, made an impressive track debut with a winning time of 6.92 in the 60 meters and Martel Durant established a new personal high with a winning mark of 6-11.50 in the high jump. Not to be outdone, Gabriel Genovesi just missed UA's all-time top five list in the 800 meters with a top time of 1:50. 87.
 
Other winners on the men's side included Nick Banke (57-03.75) in the shot put, Tyshaun Peoples (8.11) in the 60-meter hurdles, Kyle Cochrun (8:30.81) in the 3,000 meters and John Dahlstrand (47-09.00) in the triple jump. The Zips 4x400 relay team of Julius Ruby Jr., Nick Owens, J'Lani Pryce and Genovesi won a close race, clocking a time of 3:16.06 – or 51 hundredths of a second faster than KSU's foursome.
 
Cooks and Wood stole the spotlight on the women's side, each leading the charge on a 1-2 Akron sweep in their respective events.
 
Cooks, who is proving to be a quick study in the weight throw, launched a toss of 67-09.00 to beat out teammate Brittany Funk (66-09.25) and smash her previous high of 60-06.75 established last weekend. The talented sophomore was also the Zips' top finisher – placing third – in the shot put with a throw of 48-02.00
 
Wood cleared 13-00.25 in the pole vault to smash her previous career-best mark of 12-05.50, originally set in 2010, and finish ahead of teammate Claire Lucas, who jumped the same height in two more attempts.
 
It was also a strong evening for the women's distance runners who finished 1-2 in the 3,000-meters and won the 800-meters.
 
Jillian Roth cruised to an easy win in the 3K while shaving more than 10 seconds off her previous best with a time of 10:21.70 and teammate Lea Suess crossed the line next at the 10:26.31 mark. Rounding out the list of women's winners for UA was Morgan Willis, who came in first in the mile with a personal-best time of 5:03.52.
 
The Zips men's and women's teams will next head to the Penn State National next weekend. The two-day competition will get underway Friday in University Park, Pa.

Western Michigan 
Results
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. -- The Western Michigan track and field team took third place at the Jack Johnson Minnesota Classic, wrapping up competition on Saturday night.
 
WMU finished just seven points behind second-place North Dakota State with 128 points. NDSU finished with 135 and host Minnesota took first place with 203 points. WMU’s lone Mid-American Conference competition took seventh with 25.
 
“I’m not really thrilled with finishing in third,” said head coach Kelly Lycan. “I know Minnesota is one of the top three teams in the Big Ten but I thought we should have had a better showing than we did.”
 
While overall the Broncos dipped during the second day of competition, some individuals shined for WMU. Junior Andrea Hiler took second place in the shot put with a distance of 48 feet, 2.75 inches. Her distance was a personal best but also the third best in WMU’s history, putting her just behind Irene Cooper and Kristalyn Mauch. 
 
Hiler wasn’t the only thrower to nearly make history as Stephanie Negrete cemented herself in WMU’s all-time performance list in the weight throw. Negrete took fifth overall but was the fourth collegiate finisher with a distance of 56 feet, one inch. Her distance placed her fifth all-time in the weight throw at WMU. 
 
Senior Iris Campbell ran her fastest time of the year in the 60 meter hurdles. After taking second in the preliminaries she ended up taking third overall with a time of 8.77 seconds. Campbell has been adjusting to a new starting pattern and was able to improve upon her time from the previous two meets.
 
“We are experimenting with a different start for her,” said Lycan. “I think she will run faster with a seven step start rather than the eight she is used to and I think she did a good job of making that adjustment tonight.”
 
WMU’s Rebecca Hall and Ariel Arnold both turned in personal-best times in the 60 meter dash. The two teammates actually tied for sixth place with a time of 7.87 seconds. Both also scored points in the 200 meter dash with Arnold taking third and Hall taking sixth.
 
Arnold’s sister, Ariel Arnold, was the top finisher for the Broncos in the 600 meter run. The elder Arnold took third place with a time of 1:36.24, while Brittany Calhoun also scored by taking eight place at 1:38.69. 
 
In the 800 meter Aisha Hodge once again improved her time from the previous race by taking third place with a time of 2:14.68. Rebecca Peacock also improved her season-best time in the 3,000 meter run with a time of 10:30.56 to score for the Broncos. 
 
WMU also took third in the 4x400 meter relay after a tangle between Campbell and a runner from Minnesota caused the Broncos to dip into third place with a time of 3:48.73. WMU’s “B” team took fourth place with a time of 3:55.46. 
 
“We are coming along,” added Lycan. “But we are still not clicking on all four cylinders as a team.”
 
The Broncos continue action in Big Ten country as they head to Indiana for the Indiana Relays on Friday and Saturday
