Ashland science athletes finish strong

This spring semester has been exciting for Ashland University science athletes.  Our majors have competed for national championships in basketball and track and field.

The team celebrates after winning
the national championship
Biochemistry major Daiva Gerbec and Biology major Beth Mantkowski won a national championship as part of our woman's basketball team this past Friday.  The team finished the season 37-1 and won the championship game in San Antonio beating Dowling College 71-56.

Earlier in March Biology major Cory Lamar won a national championship in Birmingham as part of our 4X4 relay team, a performance that helped land the AU men's team a second place finish in the nation.  Biology major Jennifer Foster finished second in the nation in the high jump.
