  • 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 […]
  • 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 […]

Softball team to host University of Toledo

The Falcon softball team will host Toledo this weekend in their final regular season games of the season.

The games will host the official light ceremony on Saturday and senior day on Sunday.

Meserve Field and the Falcon softball family gained six lights around the diamond in the beginning of the year. The lights were gifts from Lee and Marge Meserve and they will both be recognized before the game on Saturday.

The tradition will continue Sunday when seniors Erika Stratton and Katie Yoho are recognized for their time spent with the team. Both of the players have been with the team since 2011 and both have significantly contributed to the program.

Stratton had her best year while filling her role as co-captain with a career best: .281 batting average, six home runs, 38 hits, 28 RBIs, and 62 total bases. The team’s other captain, Yoho, has a record of .306 batting average, 49 hits, six doubles, and her career best 11 home runs. Yoho is just five short of the school career home run record of 36.

The team will try and bounce back in the battle of I-75 after losing seven of their last eight. Toledo currently has a conference record of 9-11 while Bowling Green sits at 7-11.

The Falcons dropped two MAC games against Central Michigan on Friday. The team struggled on defense and gave up 10 total runs in the series. Errors late in the game also gave the team problems by giving up a three run homer in game two. However, the offense in the game was solid. In the fifth inning of the same game freshman Amanda Durham scored a RBI to bring the falcons in a comeback position 5-2. Chelsea Raker also scored in the inning to cut the lead to 5-3 but the team was not able to get over that hump.

The team will look to improve defensively against a solid offense in Toledo. Toledo has 396 hits on the year in addition to 170 RBIs and a .285 batting average. Bowling Green on the year has a .236 batting average, 303 hits, and 144 RBIs.

This series is crucial to BG as the MAC tournament starts Wednesday. Two losses to Toledo could drop the team to the last spot in the MAC east conference behind Miami.

The first game will begin at 6 p.m. on Saturday.
