During his time with the Big Green, Akanno has helped guide several individuals to record-setting performances and Heptagonal Championships. His former student-athletes on the women's side have broken records in high jump, long jump, triple jump, pentathlon as well as sprint hurdles during both indoor and outdoor seasons. He has also helped to elevate the men's jumps to new heights with numerous program records and top-five showings by several student-athletes under his guidance.

There have been 24 all-time indoor top 10 performances and 21 all-time outdoor top 10 performances in his time with the program. The multi-events have been a particular strength for the Rams in Whitten's time, accounting for seven A-10 champions and three New England champions. Rhody athletes have set and reset the A-10 record in multi-events five times (three times in the heptathlon, twice in the decathlon) and set the New England heptathlon record. The school record in both the heptathlon and decathlon has been broken four times each under Whitten's watch. Nine of the top 10 marks in URI history in the heptathlon have been set since Whitten's arrival. In the decathlon, seven of the school's top 10 marks have been established in the same time frame.
