  • 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
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]

Softball opens season with win


Hannah Fulk fields a ball and prepares to throw it to first base in a game this past season. Fulk had the Falcons only run Friday.

The BG softball team started off the season on a win after a rather uneventful weekend.

The Falcons were slotted to face four opponents. However, due to weather, the past three games were canceled.

Perhaps the Falcons brought some winter down south with them to Spartanburg, S.C., as the state saw a few inches of snow during the weekend.

The first game was against George Washington and the Falcons took home its first win of the season, 1-0.

The Falcons had just one hit for a game that saw quiet bats.

Senior Hannah Fulk, whom this past season led the Falcons in home runs, went 1-for-1 at bat with an earned run and stolen base to add.

Fulk’s run came in the bottom of the first inning. She was walked initially and, after a wild pitch followed by a steal, made it third base. Fulk was hit home by another star in senior Paige Berger on a ground out to second. Berger finished the game with the only RBI.

Fulk is close to breaking the BG career walk record and Berger is second on the home run total as well.

George Washington fared no better as it was able to muster four hits in the contest. Credit goes to sophomore pitching duo Jamie Kertes and Paris Imholz.

Kertes earned the win, giving up the one run while striking out five. Imholz pitched the final three innings striking out three of her own on three hits.

“We are glad to pick up our first win,” said head coach Shannon Salsburg. “Our pitching staff did an outstanding job of keeping the hitters off balance and trusting the defense to make the play.”

With the win, it marks the second straight season opening victory for the Falcons. In 2012, the Falcons beat Wright State 13-1.

The games against George Mason, Winthrop and Samford will not be rescheduled as the Falcons look next to the Phyllis Rafter Memorial in Kennesaw, Ga., where the Falcons will face five new opponents.
