  • 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 […]

BG Track and field host indoor home opener

On Saturday Jan. 12, the BG track and field team will have its indoor home opener held in the Perry Field House. The field players will start at 11 a.m. and the runners will start at 12 p.m.

The team saw some good flashes from individuals in their season opener at Eastern Michigan University a little more than a month ago. Highlighting that meet was Brooke Pleger in the weight throw. Pleger set a personal best, with a distance of 59 feet-8.25 , which qualified her for the Mid-American Conference Championships in February. The girls will want to continue to build on that meet in December.

“That meet was important for us in gaining experience on that track,” said Coach Lou Snelling. “That will be the host of the MAC championships in February.”

The BG opener will host six teams — Bowling Green, Dayton, Toledo, Western Michigan, Ball State and Indiana-Purdue University Fort Wayne. The size of this meet will give the Falcons some good competition early in the season. Although every athlete competing Saturday will want to win their race, they know that the main goal is to keep improving every day.

“I am very happy with the size of this meet,” coach Snelling said. “This is the girls’ opportunity to show us something.”

As the MAC has changed their playoff system for this year the girls, the coaching staff and fans will be excited to see how they compete throughout the year and see how far they can go into the playoffs.

“There will be more girls in uniform this year than there were last year,” Snelling said. “Our goal is to send as many girls as possible to the MAC championships and to see the drive, competitiveness in them and the ability to step up on big days.”
