  • 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 […]
  • Found Family Books for the Holidays
    The holidays are quickly approaching and for some of us that means seeing our family. However, family has a loose definition. It could mean blood or who you were raised with. It could also mean people you’ve found during your life journey. Either way, the holidays are meant for spending quality time with those you […]

Falcons swim to seventh place finish

Even with the tough competing schools from the BIG 10, ACC, SEC and PAC-10 programs, and being the only team invited from the Mid-American Conference, the Falcons placed seventh this weekend at the Ohio State Swimming and Diving Invitational.

“We had a great meet,” BG coach Keri Buff said. ” We stood up and swam against some of the best teams in the country and we did it well, really well. Our freshmen really stepped up and had many lifetime bests.”

Freshman Alisha Yee, who has been swimming strong all season, finished in the top five in the 100 backstroke and also scored for the Falcons in the 100 backstroke. Freshman Sami Jordan, also swimming the 100 backstroke, placed seventh. Yee also placed sixth in the 200 IM, setting a personal best time of 2:06.16.

Dana Schultz, senior, took home the highest BGSU finish by placing fourth in the 200 butterfly event. She also placed seventh in the 100 butterfly. Schultz and Yee were part of the 400 Medley Relay, along with Stephanie Buckner and Kara Ohngren, which placed seventh. The 200 freestyle relay, consisting of Jordan, Jessica Guinness, Schultz and Buckner, finished ninth.

“The girls were tough and performed all best times for the year,” Buff said. “Our relays were outstanding.”

Buckner, who was part of one of the relay teams, also scored for the Falcons in the 50 freestyle and the 100 freestyle events.

The weekend ended with Minnesota taking first place. Penn State, Ohio State, Michigan and Illinois all placed within the top four spots. Iowa just passed by BGSU, coming in sixth. Miami, Purdue, Arizona State and Florida filled up the last four placements in the invitational.

“We had 47 swims that made it back to finals,” Buff said. “This far exceeded any of our expectations. We got everything out of this weekend that we needed and more. We go into second semester and the MAC Championships very confident.”
