  • 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 […]

Falcons back in action in Cincinnati

The BGSU women’s track team is back in action this weekend as they travel to the University of Cincinnati for the Bearcats’ Oliver Nikoloff Invitational.

The Falcons will compete against the UC Bearcats as well as squads from Dayton, Detroit Mercy, Eastern Kentucky, Eastern Michigan, Western Kentucky, Wright State and Xavier.

Bowling Green has had a successful start, winning their first meet and placing second in last weekend’s meet against Western Michigan and Toledo.

Eastern Michigan will be the Falcons’ only Mid-American Conference opponent at Saturday’s meet. The Eagles competed last weekend at North Carolina State’s Raleigh Relays, where their highest finish in a tough field was a fifth place by triple jumper Kemba Johnson.

Last weekend’s cooler temperatures proved troublesome for the Falcons, who found themselves a few team members short due to injuries.

Head coach Scott Sehmann hopes for not only warmer weather for tomorrow’s meet, but also for the squad to accomplish some of their goals.

“I think first and foremost, my goal is to see us be prepared and ready to compete,” Sehmann said. “This means being properly warmed up and in the right frame of mind. I’d like to see us really put forth a strong effort to get the marks were looking for.

Last weekend, the Falcons had 10 top three finishes, but are still striving for better times and trying to adjust to new situations.

“We’re getting better at adapting to each scenario that’s presented. That’s what’s going to make us a better team,” Sehmann said.

Saturday’s meet will be held in the Bearcat’s recently renovated Gettler Staduim and will begin at 11 a.m. with field events.
