  • 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 […]

Volleyball looks to bounce back against UT and NIU

After losing their third consecutive game to Indiana-Purdue Fort Wayne Wednesday night, the Bowling Green State volleyball travel to face Toledo and Northern Illinois looking to cure its recent woes.

“It was definitely a disappointing loss,” middle hitter Melissa Mohr said of the 4-1 defeat to the Mastodons. “We lost to them earlier this year in a tournament and we were hoping for a win, but things didn’t go our way. We’re going try and get back on track this weekend.

The Falcons (9-7, 2-2) opened the Mid-American Conference with two convincing wins over the Rockets (11-3, 1-3) and Huskies (7-10, 2-2) on Sept. 24 and 25, respectively.

Setter Amber Mareski said the earlier wins will BG confidence heading into the games.

“We’ve aleady taken it to Toledo and NIU once, so I think we have that edge over them,” she said. “But it is at their place, so we have to really bring our A game. We’re pumped and ready for a win.”

UT started the season 10-0, until the Falcons humbled their rival in four sets in the first meeting.

The lose was the first of three to open the MAC, but the Rockets snapped the streak with a 3-0 over Central Michigan last Saturday.

The Huskies, who are currently tied with BG for fourth place in the West Division, have won three consecutive games.

Mohr said both UT and NIU will be looking to exact revenge.

“We have a bull’s-eye on us, but we played well last time,” she said. “I think there’s still room for improvement from those wins, so hopefully things come together.”

Tonight’s match against the Rockets at Savage Hall is scheduled for 7 p.m. The Falcons to action Saturday at 7 p.m. to face the Huskies.
