  • 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 […]

Seniors go 4-0 on Senior Day

The Bowling Green State tennis team turned in another great performance this weekend as they won both of their games scheduled against Akron and then Buffalo.

On Friday April 11 the Falcons hosted Akron and defeated them by a score of 6-1. The Falcons started off the day by winning all three doubles matches, and the Falcons won five of the singles matches, winning four of those in straight sets.

The closest of the three doubles matches came when Akron’s Karolina Maksimava and Martina Zerbola rallied from a 3-1 deficit against Brozovich and Chiricosta in which they tied the match at 3-3. Brozovich and Chiricosta then took the lead by a 6-3 score. Akron then closed the gap and came within a single game, but unfazed Brozovich and Chiricosta then captured back-to-back games for an 8-5 win.

Head coach Penny Dean stressed the importance of getting out to an early lead over Akron.

“Akron is a very talented team with some good players,” said BG head coach Penny Dean. “But, they have struggled a little bit lately with injuries and illness. I felt that we needed to start well, in both doubles and singles, to try to set the tone, and we were able to do that today.”

The Falcons would take the early lead and never looked back as they almost blanked the Zips in which was a good day for the Falcons.

It was great to play on campus today,” said Dean, “We get a fair amount of fans when we play at Perrysburg, but there’s just something about playing here in BG on a nice day.

“There were a lot of fans between here and the baseball game this afternoon, there was a lot of orange in the crowd, and it’s just such a fun atmosphere. We really appreciate the support, and we hope to see a lot of orange in the crowd again tomorrow on Senior Day.”

On Saturday the Falcons defeated Buffalo by a score 5-2 in which was a big day for the Falcons as it was senior day for Seniors Nikki Chiricosta and Emily Reuland.

BG won all three doubles matches for the second day in a row, and the Falcons then went on to win four of the six singles matches. The Falcons’ seniors went 4-0 combined; Nikki Chiricosta won at both singles and doubles against Buffalo.

Dean was satisfied with her team efforts and the support they had on Senior Day.

“This was a great team win,” said Dean. “Everyone on the roster contributed to this win. It was great to see such a big crowd today. We had some alumnae back in town, and we could really feel the support from the entire crowd all day long.”

With the win the Falcons finished off their home schedule with a perfect 7-0 record which included a 4-0 record against MAC opponents. More importantly with the victory the Falcons improve to 10-6 overall and 4-2 in MAC play, and BG has clinched a berth in the MAC Championships.

“This was a good team win on Senior Day,” said Dean. “Nikki and Emily were determined to win their final home match, and I couldn’t be happier that they combined to go 4-0 today as we won as a team. Now, as I said last weekend, we will look to keep the momentum going as we head into our matches next weekend.”

The Falcons will indeed look to take that momentum they gained from these matches as they will finish up the regular season the road at Ball State April 18 and then the final game of the regular season will be played at Miami (Ohio) April 19.
