UA students competing in the Association of College Unions International (ACUI) collegiate table tennis and 9-ball billiards championships hosted here June 25-27 did Akron proud.
The table tennis tournament consisted of two round robin events — doubles and singles. Sarang Bhaway, who is earning a Ph.D. in Polymer Engineering, and Kyle Hayes, a mechanical engineering major, controlled the tables June 26, taking first place in doubles. On June 27, Bhaway won the singles competition by going undefeated — 5-0. (Adrena May from the ACUI is pictured above with Bhaway, left, and Hayes during the awards ceremony.)
In billiards, Zachary McKee, a graduate student in applied mathematics, took fourth place and Kevin Slepecky, a chemical engineering major, tied for fifth. These are the highest national rankings for the ACUI billiards tournament for any Akron students.
