  • 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 […]

Falcons with chance to win MAC Championship at Miami

The Bowling Green tennis team will finish the regular season on the road, with a chance to win the Mid-American Conference championship.

This weekend they will face off against Ball State April 18, before facing Miami University April 19.

The Falcons are currently riding a four-game winning streak. Those four wins proved to be enough to vault the Falcons into a tie for third place in the Mid-American Conference standings and more importantly that now leaves them with an opportunity to capture the league title this weekend.

BG and Ball State each have 4-2 MAC records, and the Falcons and Cardinals are a game behind the first-place and defending champion RedHawks who are 5-1 in the MAC while Eastern Michigan sits in second place with a 5-2 record.

The top six teams in the final conference standings will qualify for the MAC Championships, with the first and second place teams earning first-round byes.

Last weekend the Falcons picked up two home victories. They beat Akron 6-1 April 11 and then defeated Buffalo the following day 5-2.

Against Akron the Falcons started off the day by winning all three doubles matches, and then 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 Nikki 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.

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.

Ball State will enter Friday’s match posting a 14-8 record overall and a 4-2 record in MAC play. The Cardinals have won three of their last four matches. Last weekend Ball State lost to Toledo 4-3 but then the following day defeated Eastern Michigan by the same 4-3 score.

The Miami Red Hawks will come into Saturdays match with a 13-6 record overall and a 5-1 record in MAC play. Last weekend the Red Hawks won twice on the road when they beat 4-3 at EMU on Friday and then defeated Toledo 7-0 on Saturday.

The Falcons look to continue their hot streak in hopes to vault them to first place in the standing in two key matchups this weekend.
