  • Repairing the Family
    By Jay Grummel Earlier this month I wrote about fond families, however the holidays are made up of many different types of families. Some will be hostile and dysfunctional or some will be loving and understanding. Whatever your family looks like this season, it’s always nice to read about ones other than your own. So, […]
  • Review of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
    Let’s time-travel to the year 2012 and the world is raving about none other than Katniss Everdeen. I remember being in elementary school, begging my mother to let me dress up as her for my birthday. Now it’s over ten years later and I’m still just as excited for the new movie as I was […]

BG looks for more success vs. WMU

The Bowling Green women’s track team will travel to Western Michigan for a showdown against two Mid-American Conference teams, Western Michigan and Toledo, on Saturday, March 26.

The squad placed first in last Saturday’s Cincinnati Opener at Cincinnati and will look to continue their winning ways.

Western Michigan is coming off a strong third place finish at last weekend’s Alabama Relays. The Broncos ran against some elite competition from around the SEC and established NCAA qualifying marks in the hammer throw and the 4 x 400 meter relay. The Broncos finished a solid sixth in the MAC Indoor Championships which were held February 25-26. Saturday’s meet is Western’s lone home contest in the outdoor season, so they will be looking to take advantage of their only contest on their home track.

Toledo’s last meet was the Alex Wilson Invitational, an indoor meet hosted two weeks ago by Notre Dame. They are led by sprinter and jumper April Williams and distance runner Jackie Baumgartner. Saturday will be the Rockets first outdoor meet. They finished in 11th place, just one place below Bowling Green, in the MAC Indoor Championships, showing the parity between the two teams.

The meet will not include all of the usual events, leaving out a few distance races, but assistant coach Cami Wells does not see that as a hindrance for BG.

“The meet format is a little different than usual. They will not run a 3000-meter steeplechase or a 5000-meter. Even without those events we feel we have a good chance to compete for the team title,” Wells said.

Saturday’s dual meet will kick off at 10 a.m. at Western’s Kanley Track in Kalamazoo.
