  • 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 […]

More Falcons qualify for MAC championship

The BG Falcon track and field team added three more players into the Mid-American Conference championship this past Friday. The three players to qualify were freshman Makenzie Wheat, senior Tiera Perrine and senior Jeanette Pettigrew.

Wheat set a personal best at the shot put event by earning a distance 47’10”. That easily surpassed MAC’s qualifying marks and helped her place seventh out of 13 competitors.

Perrine managed to qualify by throwing 59.11.75 in the weight throw. This passed her previous record by three feet and placed her in eighth place.

Finally, in the 200 meter dash Pettigrew came in first with a time of 25.11 seconds. When her time got converted it became 24.73 seconds, which is five milliseconds ahead of the MAC standard of 24.78.

Junior Natalie Sommerville, along with Pettigrew, managed to come first in their event by winning the 600 with a score of 1:38:45.

As a whole, the Falcons have achieved the MAC qualifiers eight times, a remarkable improvement compared to this past year, when they qualified once.

The Falcons will travel to Akron for the Akron Invitational event Friday and Saturday.
