  • 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 […]

Tennis team set for two matches

The BG women’s tennis team will fight to maintain their 5-0 record this weekend against Michigan State University tomorrow and the University of Detroit on Sunday. The pair of matches will be played on the road.

After playing several home matches in a row, the Falcons will pack their bags and head to Michigan for the weekend. Coach Penny Dean says that traveling can be stressful, but the team is used to it.

“There is always a little challenge in [traveling], but we are a mature team and do it all season long,” Dean said. “[It’s a] short trip and we’ve been there before.”

The MSU Spartans are 4-4 in their spring season, though they beat BG 6-1 during their last matchup in 2007.

The UD Titans are 5-2 in their season thus far. Last February, the Falcons beat UD 5-2.

Senior Kelsey Jakupcin has a positive outlook for the weekend. Though neither match is for Mid-American Conference points, MSU is a Big 10 team.

“Everyone on our team is successful right now and we all have the best attitudes and mindsets from how we have been playing,” Jakupcin said. “We will keep working hard in practices because we play a Big Ten team and it would be a huge win for us if we came out on top.”

Jakupcin is also optimistic about the distance the Falcons will travel.

“We have all played at Michigan State and have played at Detroit’s tennis club during juniors, so we are familiar with the coming surroundings,” Jakupcin said. “East Lansing and Detroit aren’t too far from BG, which is nice so the traveling time won’t be as long, and we won’t get tired.”

The women will play tomorrow and Sunday at 12 p.m. and 6 p.m., respectively.
