  • They Both Die at the End – General Review
    Summer break is the perfect opportunity to get back into reading. Adam Silvera’s (2017) novel, They Both Die at the End, can serve as a stepping stone into the realm of reading. The pace is fast, action-packed, and develops loveable characters. Also, Silvera switches point of view each chapter where narration mainly focuses on the protagonists, […]
  • My Favorite Book – Freshwater
    If there’s one book that I believe everyone should read once in their life, it’s my favorite book – Freshwater by Akwaeke Emezi. From my course, Queer Literature under Dr. Bill Albertini, I discovered Emezi’s Freshwater (2018).

Week of 9/26: MAC Volleyball Round-up

Week+of+9%2F26%3A+MAC+Volleyball+Round-up

As the month of September is in it’s final days, the beginning of MACtion is here, as the teams within the conference have gotten the chance to introduce themselves to each other.

For some, this is a chance to be confident in their chances after a rough non-conference slate, while for others, it’s all about maintaining a gap from the rest of the field.

Here is a look at the current standings (courtesy of getsomemaction.com)

NOTABLE STORYLINES:

  • Bowling Green once again had their name attached to at least one member of the MAC East Division Players of the Week awards list. After having three Falcons last week (Jessica Andrews, Amanda Otten, Jaden Walz), sophomore Lauryn Hovey and freshman Benedetta Marcon took home MAC East Offensive and Defensive Player of the Week respectively. Hovey had 38 kills split across two matches against Northern Illinois, while Marcon recorded 39 digs in the two matches combined.
  • A pair of Toledo Rockets cracked the MAC West Players of the Week award list for the first time this season. Taylor Alt earned MAC West Offensive Player of the Week, racking up 40 blocks in two matches against Eastern Michigan. Meanwhile, Ryann Jaqua earned MAC West Defensive Player of the Week, averaging 6.88 digs/set last week, while racking up a season-high 28 digs in Toledo’s win on Thursday.
  • Buffalo and Western Michigan continue to remain red-hot as the season approaches the halfway point. Both are 12-2 overall and have continued to dominate in the statistical categories. As of today, 9/26, Buffalo is number one in the conference in team hitting percentage, opponent assists, opponent hitting percentage, opponent kills, and opponent blocks, while Western Michigan is tops in kills, opponent service aces, assists, and overall points.
