“Being a member the track and field and cross country program at University of Akron has taught me what it means to part of a team. Running, working out and supporting my teammates each day allows us to build a bond like no other. Having teammates from all over the state, country and world has given me a new perspective on life. I run for each of my teammates, and proudly represent the University of Akron every day. I enjoy the process together as a team motivating one another and improving.”



“I came to the University of Akron from a small school with no idea what to really expect as a Division 1 student-athlete. And from day one I was excited, blessed and motivated to be a part of such a successful driven program. I had opportunities starting my freshman cross country season through my final race as a Zip that athletes at bigger division 1 schools dream of. The track and field and cross country program taught me so many life and athletic skills that I use everyday. I continue to proud represent the University of Akron all over the world competing as a Zip alumni.”
