  • 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 heading to Cincinnati for tourney

The BG women’s tennis team will compete in their second tournament this weekend, and their first one on the road. The Queen City Invitational will be the second out of only three tournaments the women will compete in this fall.

The Falcons will be led by senior co-captains Katia Babina and Samantha Kintzel at the first tournament since they were voted captains by their coach and teammates.

The Falcons hosted their first tournament of the fall, and although team scores were not counted, the women proved to be ready for the season with one flight title and several runner-up positions. The lone title went to freshman Jade Johnson in her first collegiate match.

‘I just went out on the court with a positive attitude, and I was looking to pull out a win for myself and also the team,’ Johnson said. ‘It makes me look forward to what is to come this season on the Bowling Green tennis team.’

This weekend, Johnson will have the opportunity to see what is to come for BG, but not before a little practice time with coach Penny Dean.

‘[Jade] was struggling in practice some so that makes [her success last weekend] doubly good,’ Dean said. ‘Each player has some specifics [to work on] including volleys and focus.’

Johnson has a few things that she would personally like to work on before the tournament this weekend.

‘For the Queen City tournament, I will be focusing on staying in each point longer and being more consistent with my shots,’ Johnson said. ‘I am looking forward to another great weekend of tennis.’

The women will hit the road for the Queen City Invitational in Cincinnati today through Sunday. During the three-day tournament, matches are scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. each day.
