  • 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 […]

Track takes third place at Jack Shaw Invitational

The weather conditions in Kalamazoo, Mich., were less than ideal on Saturday, but the field of four teams all competed on an equal playing field.

The BG track and field team fought through cold rain and windy conditions, and earned a third-place finish at the Jack Shaw Invite on Saturday.

“The weather played a major factor in the times and marks that were possible, but the team did a great job of getting out and competing hard despite the difficult conditions,” coach Cami Wells said.

Two Falcons earned first-place finishes, while the team recorded 10 top-three finishes in 18 events.

Western Michigan dominated the meet with 225.5 points.

With a team total of 140 points, BG finished 14.5 points behind Eastern Michigan.

Tatijana Jacobson won the high jump for the second straight week with a mark of 1.67 meters.

Sabrina Forstein (3.05 meters) was the only pole vaulter able to manage a height greater than three meters in the poor weather conditions.

“Tatijana Jacobson and Sabrina Forstein showed a lot of composure and toughness to jump and vault in very difficult circumstances,” Wells said.

Heather Conger recorded a personal outdoor best for the 800 meter run with a time of 2:14.6.

“I was especially pleased with Heather Conger running a personal best for the outdoor season in the 800 meter, and Brooke McCombs and Ashley Harris both throwing PRs in the hammer throw for the second consecutive week,” Wells said.

With two meets underway in the outdoor season, the Falcons are looking to get into full stride over the next month to prepare best for the Mid-American Conference Championships May 13-15.

The Falcons are scheduled to compete every weekend until the conference championship.

The next two weekends, the Falcons will compete in Athens, Ohio, in the Ohio University Women’s Team Challenge this Saturday, and in the two-day All-Ohio Championships starting the following Friday.
