  • They Both Die at the End – General Review
    Summer break is the perfect opportunity to get back into reading. Adam Silvera’s (2017) novel, They Both Die at the End, can serve as a stepping stone into the realm of reading. The pace is fast, action-packed, and develops loveable characters. Also, Silvera switches point of view each chapter where narration mainly focuses on the protagonists, […]
  • My Favorite Book – Freshwater
    If there’s one book that I believe everyone should read once in their life, it’s my favorite book – Freshwater by Akwaeke Emezi. From my course, Queer Literature under Dr. Bill Albertini, I discovered Emezi’s Freshwater (2018). Once more, my course, Creative Writing Thesis Workshop under Professor Amorak Huey, was instructed to present our favorite […]

Falcon tennis team hosting UT and EMU this weekend

After an unfortunate start to their Mid-American Conference season, the BG women’s tennis team is ready to take on two more MAC opponents this weekend. They will face Toledo today and Eastern Michigan tomorrow. Both matches will be played at home. This season, the Falcons have racked up a 7-4 record (0-1 MAC) with a perfect 5-0 record at their winter home, the Perrysburg Tennis Center. The matches for this weekend are scheduled to be played in BG on Keefe Courts for the first time this spring, weather permitting. The Rockets will begin the first of five road games at BG, bringing with them a 10-6 record (1-1 MAC). Last year, the match was held at UT and proved unsuccessful for the Falcons with a close score of 4-3. This year, the women plan to be on the winning side of the matchup. ‘I expect our team to be confident and very pumped up to play this weekend, especially against Toledo,’ senior Kelsey Jakupcin said. ‘We have a very big rivalry with them and always try to bring our absolute best to that match.’ The Eagles also won the MAC matchup against the Falcons last year, but the battle of the birds is on again tomorrow with EMU bringing their 3-11 (0-2 MAC) record into the match. Though the Eagles have a low record, the Falcons are still preparing for a difficult match. ‘I expect they will both be long, close matches,’ coach Penny Dean said. ‘The doubles point is very important.’ Jakupcin also expects there to be some differences in the EMU match than what the team has seen so far this season. ‘EMU will be a little different in that they have a very young team that we haven’t run into before, but we will still be on our A game,’ Jakupcin said. Senior Stefanie Menoff says the Falcons are ready for the MAC matchups. ‘I think that if as a team we all bring our mental toughness and confidence to these matches it will work in our favor,’ Menoff said. Both matches will be played at 1 p.m. The match vs. I-75 rival UT will be televised on BCSN this afternoon.
