  • 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 swimming tarnishes Rockets’ record in final seconds of last event

BG swimming took the victory against UT, handing the Rockets their first MAC loss.

The winner would be determined by .03 seconds in the final event of the day.

Bowling Green, down by one point heading into the 200 freestyle relay, needed the win. And they got it.

Kayla Effinger, Anna Babinec, Emily Waller and Hannah Newman made up the relay team and swam in with a time of 1:35.07, just touching the wall before MAC rival Toledo at 1:35.10.

The Falcons headed up I-75 to take on the Rockets Friday to try and claim their second dual meet win in a row. In the process, the team also tarnished Toledo’s perfect record in the MAC.

“I think it really shows how much they want this,” head coach Petra Martin said. “You know, how competitive they are, they want to put their hand on the wall first more than the person next to them. It was great.”

BG took the meet by eight points, giving up all 32 points in diving, but taking eight events in the pool.

Victoria Griffin improved her record in the 100 and 200 freestyles, remaining undefeated at 6-0 and 5-0 respectively. Griffin took second in the 50 freestyle behind teammate Kayla Effinger.

Daniela Carrillo also picked up two individual wins in the 100 and 200 breaststroke.

Joëlle Scheps picked up points for first in the 200 individual medley after setting a personal best in the 100 butterfly. Scheps came in second in the butterfly with a time of 56.41.

The 1000 freestyle saw a sweep in points by BG. Lara Klein touched the wall for first with a time of 10:24.96, almost two seconds before teammate Tara Capouch hit for second. Petra Laudova swam in for third.

Next week the Falcons will see a heavier swimming schedule as they take on back-to-back away meets.

“It’s a much better indication as to how they are going to be able to respond to multiple day championships like the MAC where they are going to perform three days in a row,” Martin said. “We’re really looking forward to it to see how our ladies are going to respond to everything.”

Friday they will hit the pool against Ohio University in Athens, then travel to Marshall for a meet Saturday. BG is currently 3-3 in dual meets this season and 1-2 in the MAC.
