"Excellence is not an act…but a habit." — Aristotle

Welcome to another edition of Hitting The Links, UnScripted Ohio's Weekly Wrapup of all things Ohio State Athletics.

Football

Coach Meyer and 10 Buckeyes, headlined by the Boren brothers and Curtis Grant, visited Whetstone High School for the Columbus City Schools Special Olympics kickoff.

Basketball

Baseball

The Buckeye Bats were busy this week; winning 4-1 against Northwestern, splitting two against Oklahoma, and taking the series against Seattle 2 games to 1 including a 7-2 win on Senior Day.

RHP/1B Josh Dezse was named to the John Olerud Watch List, given to the nation's top two-way player.

Women's Golf

The Buckeyes finished sixth at the NCAA Regionals, good enough to earn a trip to the NCAA Championships. The Lady Linksters were led by Rachel Rohanna, who came in seventh with a final card of 4 over par.

Softball

The squad closed out the 2012 season with a series win over Penn State, grabbing 2 out of 3 games. Sophomore Evelyn Carrillo smacked a grand slam in the 4-1 win to close out the series.

Men's Track

Ohio State finished 4th in the B1G Outdoor Championships, picking up four bronzes and one silver medal. Long Jumper Michael Hartfield pulled down the B1G Title with a leap of 26 feet, 1.5 inches, a personal record.

Women's Track

The Lady Bucks brought the B1G Championship back to Columbus with a record setting day. All-American Christina Manning was a force on the track, grabbing gold in 100m dash, 100m hurdles, and as part of the 4x100m relay team. The title was just the second in school history, but also the second in as many years.
