6.  Lightning Round  High Voltage on Apple iOS 14.6

Gallaudet men's track and field sprinter Eric Gregory finishes first in a sprint at an outdoor meet in the afternoon at Salisbury University.
Eric Gregory, Gallaudet
  Track and Field
  • Gallaudet's Eric Gregory set a world record in winning the 200 at the CSAC championship. Gregory's mark of 20.62 is a world mark for a deaf athlete, bettering the old standard of 21.15 set by Wendell Gaskin Jr., in 1993.
  • Before the gun went off at the start of the Men’s 4×400 Relay at the OAC Outdoor Track & Field Championships, the score read – John Carroll 213, Mount Union 213. Track & field doesn’t get much better than that. The Purple Raiders brought home the title with Dylon CampbellJustin KnochTyler Gill and Matt McBride winning in 3:17.34 for Mount Union's 11th straight team crown.
  • Tufts ended Middlebury's 42-game unbeaten streak with a 9-8 victory in the NESCAC women's championship game. Margie Carden scored five times for the Jumbos (15-3).  It is the first loss for a Panther women's stick sport during the 2021-22 calendar year. Field Hockey and Women's Ice Hockey finished with 22-0 and 27-0 marks, respectively, while lax fell to 17-1.
  • Salisbury snapped Christopher Newport's 16-game win streak, downing the No. 1 Captains (16-1), 15-10, in the Coast-to-Coast men's final. Jack Dowd had four goals and two assists for the Gulls (18-1).
  • Avery Byrnes twirled her fourth no-hitter of the season to lead Cabrini to a 1-0 victory against Marywood in the Atlantic East Conference championship series. She had previously tossed a trio of five-inning no-nos.
