  • 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 finds success at home

The BG women’s tennis team kicked off their season at home this weekend, taking several runner-up positions and one championship title.

Freshman Jade Johnson was the individual champion in her first collegiate tournament, playing at the 8th flight.

‘Going into this weekend, I was a little nervous, but I was also very excited,’ Johnson said. ‘It was our first tournament of the year and my first time in a collegiate tournament, so I didn’t really know what to expect. I was hoping to have fun and play as hard as I could to win every match.’

Christine Chiricosta took second place in the top flight. Samantha Kintzel played at the fourth flight, making it to the championship round before being defeated while Jessica Easdale placed second at the seventh flight.

In the top doubles flight, Chiricosta and Maddy Eccleston advanced to the championship match before succumbing.

‘Overall, we played well for our first competition,’ said coach Penny Dean. ‘The new players progressed in their level, even by the second day.’

The team went 13-11 in singles action and 5-7 in doubles. Team scores were not kept in the 10-team tournament.

After her first collegiate match with the Falcons, Johnson says she is looking forward to the rest of the season.

‘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.’

The Falcons will hit the road Oct. 2 for a weekend at the Queen City Invitational in Cincinnati. Matches each day are scheduled to begin at 9 a.m.
