  • 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 […]

Menoff looks to move up singles list as Falcon tennis travels to NIU

The BG women’s tennis team will play their fourth Mid-American Conference match this season today at Northern Illinois. The Falcons bring a 9-4 record into the match (2-1 MAC), and the Huskies are 5-10 (1-3 MAC). On Wednesday, senior Stefanie Menoff was named MAC women’s tennis Player of the Week. Though the announcement was made on April Fool’s Day, the honor is no joke, especially considering the accomplishment Menoff achieved this past weekend. Last Saturday, Menoff tied the University record for most career singles wins. Today, she will try to break out of the three- way tie. During the Falcon/Huskie match-up last year, BG blanked them 7-0. Coach Penny Dean is hoping for a similar win today. ‘I expect us to fight hard and win every match-up that we possibly can,’ Dean said. ‘[We will] compete hard.’ Senior Kelsey Jakupcin said’ the team is not taking MAC wins lightly and are working on their weaknesses. ‘We will continue to practice the strengths of our games,’ Jakupcin said. ‘We will keep working on our doubles games so we win the doubles point going into singles and the little things that need tweaked here and there individually.’ Menoff also has a few things in mind that she would like to work on as she looks to break BG records. ‘During practice this week I am going to work on my consistency and my serve,’ Menoff said. ‘I think that those are two important things to have especially when playing outdoors.’ The team has played two outdoor matches this spring, though three were scheduled. Today’s match is scheduled outdoors, weather permitting. Dean also has a few things that she would like to see the team improve upon against NIU. ‘We mostly need to work on long points and our transition game,’ Dean said. ‘[We need to] continue conditioning; it was obvious in long matches [last] weekend that we won third sets because we did not get tired and the opponent did and started missing shots.’ The NIU match will be the first of three away matches the women will play before returning home for the rest of the season, including the MAC championships. Today’s match begins at 12:30 local time (1:30 p.m. ET) in Dekalb, Ill.
