  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]
  • 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 […]

BG finishes fourth at Ohio Women’s Team Challenge

Sabrina Forstein has won the pole vault in all three outdoor meets this season.

She was one of three Falcons to place first Saturday at the Ohio University Women’s Team Challenge in Athens, Ohio.

Like the competition at Toledo two weeks ago, the BG track and field team had many strong individual finishes, but that didn’t result in a favorable team outcome.

BG placed last Saturday in the four-team field. Ohio won the meet with 219 points.

Heather Conger won the 1,500 meter run, and she continues to build on her very strong start to the outdoor season.

In the previous two meets, she recorded a first-place finish and set a personal record in the 800 meter run, and has twice been named a nominee for the Mid-American Conference athlete of the week award.

Ashley Fischer won the 5,000 meter run by nearly 20 seconds, as BG landed the top three places for that event.

A trio of Falcons achieved personal bests on Saturday.

Brooke McCombs threw 12.55 meters in the shot put to earn fourth place, while Danielle Thornton (1:00.28) and Paige Lane (1:02.93) each ran career bests in the 400 meter dash.

“Overall, it was a positive day for the team,” said coach Cami Wells. “We had many season and personal bests set and competed well.

“We still have many things to work on to be ready for the MAC meet, and we are looking forward to using this weekend’s All-Ohio meet as a chance to step up to the challenge of higher level competition and a championship meet atmosphere,” she said.

The Falcons will return to Athens this weekend to compete in the All-Ohio Championships this Friday and Saturday.

The meet is one of the most competitive of the season, so the Falcons will look to be in top form. To do so, BG held out some athletes in certain events to rest them for this weekend.

Wells said the team was affected in its preparation for next weekend, but hopes the team will be rewarded with a strong showing.

“There were a few events we didn’t enter this week to prepare for next week’s All-Ohio meet, so that hurt us some in the team scoring, but I felt we competed well in the events we were entered in and saw solid improvement,” she said.
