  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]
  • Poetry for Fall

Coach Kerrie Beach won Coach of the Year at the Mid-American Conference Championships.

This was Beach’s first time winning the award. She has been coaching Falcon gymnastics since 2008.

“I was overwhelmed by emotion,” Beach said. “I really share that award with [assistant coaches] Taylor Jones and Chad Wiest. I couldn’t do any of this without them. It’s really a ‘coaching staff of the year’ award if you ask me.”

This award points to the success the gymnastics team has had in the past two years.

In 2011 her team regional qualifying scores were 190.865 and rose to 193.630 in 2012.

The improvement kept coming as the falcons improved their RQS to 194.035.

This year’s Falcon team finished third in the MAC with a 3-3 winning percentage. This past year’s team was 1-5 against MAC teams.

“I’m just thankful to my colleagues who chose to recognize the fact that our program’s improving. I’m quite humbled by it,” Beach said.
