  • 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). Once more, my course, Creative Writing Thesis Workshop under Professor Amorak Huey, was instructed to present our favorite […]

On Saturday, BGSU gymnastics opened up their Mid-American Conference season with a narrow 194.050-193.000 loss versus the Northern Illinois Huskies. After coming out on top in the first rotation, the Falcons fell short on the bars to make for a close meet.

While rotations on the beam and floor went more smoothly for the Falcons and Kathyrn Weilbacher won three events, it still wasn’t enough to pace the Huskies.

Here’s how it happened. 

Starting off, Weilbacher led the Falcons with a 9.800 in the bars, her current season high, and a 9.850 on the vault, winning the event and logging the highest score of any event during the meet.  

The meet saw two more Falcon debuts, Keira Thornton’s collegiate debut on the all-around/beam and senior Lauren Bannister’s season debut on the floor.  

During the third rotation, sophomore Elise Brzoska tied her career high on beam, eventually winning the event for the Orange and Brown.  

For the last rotation, the Falcons were led by Weilbacher on the floor, who secured the floor event and all-around title with 39.22 points as a result of her performance in the event. 

Ultimately, the meet’s fate came down to the bars event where the Falcons only scored 47.450 points compared to last week’s 48.575.  

From here, Bowling Green will go on the road to continue their season, traveling to Ball State next Monday, the 22nd, with a 7 pm start time.
