  • Danez Smith at AWP
    Richard Saker/Contour by Getty Images As we end Black History Month, here is one of my favorite poets, Danez Smith, who writes on intersectionality between their Black and Queer identities. At the Association of Writers and Writing Programs (AWP) conference in Kansas City, MO, I had the opportunity to personally meet Smith, and they are […]
  • Lying in Memoir
    Lauren Slater crafts diligent, depictive metaphors in narrative, and I hate her writing, simultaneously. Should there be lying in memoir? In her book, Lying: A Metaphorical Memoir (2000), Slater crafts lies from epilepsy to nunneries to doctor visits and proposed peer reviewed theses to AA meetings. However, within these lies, she allows us to question […]

BG splits team, performs well in both meets

The BG track and field team is home from three days of competition in two different cities this weekend.

The team was split between the 26th annual Toledo Invitational and the 25th annual Jesse Owens Track Classic in Columbus.

Some of the team competed in Toledo on Thursday and Friday, while the rest of the team started competing Friday and into Saturday in Columbus. Neither meet was scored.

In Toledo, javelin thrower Paige Lane placed second with a distance of 36.27 meters, just one inch shy of her career mark.

Katie Borgelt finished third in the 1500 meter run. In the shot put, Brooke McCombs placed second on her way to a personal record, and Ashley Harris finished third with a season best mark.

Kristin Boettcher was the only Falcon to compete in both meets.

She placed second (49.11m) in the hammer throw Thursday at Toledo and then bested that mark on her way to a 29th place finish Friday in Columbus.

Also in Columbus, freshman Jeanette Pettigrew placed first in her heat and set a personal record of 12.08 seconds in the 100 meter dash.

Autumn Dettmann continued her stretch of solid recent performances with a personal record in the mile on her way to a second-place finish.

With another weekend of competition complete, the Falcons are one step closer to completing the season-long journey at the MAC Championships in two weeks.

“The entire season is an opportunity to prepare for MAC and this weekend was just another step and opportunity to learn and better prepare for all situations and competition,” said coach Cami Wells.

The meet in Columbus featured more depth and better competition than in any meet the Falcons have competed in or will compete in this season, but the experience is valuable and something to learn from.

“To be able to compete against great competition allows you to raise your level of competition and gain confidence for the future,” Wells said.

Needing a bit of rest, the Falcons will regroup this week and shift their focus to final exams before getting back into competition this Friday and Saturday at the Len Paddock Invitational in Ann Arbor, Mich.
