  • 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 […]

Spikers look for revenge vs. Herd

Round two.

The Bowling Green State volleyball team and the Marshall Thundering Herd will battle for the second and final time this season at MAC Tournament Quarterfinals today at 1:30 p.m. in Anderson Arena.

And the Falcons enter the match with one thing on their mind after losing in five games to Marshall last Friday at Anderson Arena.


“We really feel like we let one slip away against Marshall in the first game,” head coach Denise Van De Walle said after Tuesday’s first-round win over Akron. “This is also big for us because it’s game that Amber (Mareski) got hurt in. So we’re going to be ready to play.”

In the first match between the two teams, BGSU captured the first two games before the Thundering Herd rallied to take the next three behind freshman Kelly-Anne Billingly and Kate Stein.

It was the third five-set loss for the Falcons this season.

Marshall had a bye during the first-round of the MAC Tournament, but BGSU is coming into the match with home court advantage and momentum follow a 3-1 win over the Zips.

The Falcons had a 79-64 kill advantage over Akron and hit .276 compared to .211, including a .446 hitting percentage in the final game.

Taylor Twite led four Falcons with double-digit kills, as she produced a game-high 22.

The Thundering Herd (20-10, 11-5) are led by Billingly, who is second in the MAC with 631 kills (5.63 per game) and Stein’s 12.03 assists per game.

The Falcons’ Emily Manser said it will be an exciting match.

“We’re all excited to have another shot at Marshall and we feel pretty confident,” said Manser, who had 14 kills against the Zips. “We have a lot of momentum and we want to come and really get this win to advance.”
