  • A Theatrical Rivalry with Love and Despair
    By Jay Grummel If We Were Villains has a way of making the horrifics acts of rivals and the blurry line of morals poetic. At first glance I didn’t think I’d enjoy this book as much as I did, especially with the amount of times it quoted Shakespeare. However, after diving into this dark academic […]
  • Falcon Four: Series for Back-to-School Nostalgia
    By Jay Grummel For some of us going back to classes is dreadful and for others it’s exciting. Personally, I am happy to be back on campus and with some structure, but I am also happily procrastinating  a lot of my responsibilities. To get back into the groove of things, here’s a Falcon Four of […]

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.
