  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]
  • A Theatrical Rivalry with Love and Despair
    By Jay Grummel If We Were Villains has a way of making the horrifics acts of rivals and the blurry line of morals poetic. At first glance I didn’t think I’d enjoy this book as much as I did, especially with the amount of times it quoted Shakespeare. However, after diving into this dark academic […]

BG Track finishes second at Toledo Challenge

The Falcons won the most events of any team Saturday, but their efforts didn’t result in a first-place finish.

BG won eight of 20 events Saturday at the Toledo Collegiate Challenge but still finished in second place behind Toledo, the meet winner.

Wells thought the team’s performance on Saturday was a small step in the right direction, as the Falcons look to build toward a championship effort at the conference meet in May.

“Having the most event winners is certainly a positive start for us, because the athletes that can put themselves in a position to compete at the highest level, once the competition level rises, are those that will be in a position to score at the conference meet in May,” said coach Cami Wells.

“I felt that the majority of the team competed very well and that the team supported one another start to finish. In some events we were not able to capitalize on our depth and in other areas we were helped out with the scoring set up.”

Heather Conger won the 800 meter run and the 1500 meter run both in very convincing fashion.

“Heather Conger had a great day; she had never run the 1500 meter before and for her to step up and win that event in a very solid time was a nice accomplishment and then to come back and win the 800 meter, she showed her physical and mental strength,” Wells said. “Heather has worked extremely hard to put herself in the position to have a breakout season.”

Tatijana Jacobson set a new personal record while securing first place in the high jump.

“Tatijana has been so consistent all year long and really stepped up to be one of our top performers this year,” Wells said. “I am very pleased with her effort and the commitment she has shown to the team and her training.”

Overall, Wells thought the team put forth a solid performance in its first outdoor meet this season.

“There were many other highlights and personal bests set yesterday as well; it was a really solid start for us as a team and we are happy to see the hard work paying off.”

The Falcons will compete next at the Western Michigan Triangular on Saturday.
