  • 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.

The Bowling Green softball team showed an improved offense on Sunday, sweeping conference rival Toledo in a double header.

The Falcons continued with their trend of getting off to a quick start in the first game, scoring two runs in the first inning. Sophomore Aspen Searle singled to left field on her first at bat followed by a Marina Cobbs triple.

With Haley Schrock at bat and Searle and Cobbs on first and second, the Falcons scored their two first inning runs off of an error. They then kept Toledo scoreless before the second inning.

Keeping the trend going, the Falcons ran the score up with three runs in the second inning.

After Kayla Koch and Emily McClelland hit their way to second and third, Searle added three RBIs with a three-run homerun over the left field fence to increase the Falcons’ score to five.

The team put up another two runs before the Rockets showed any scoring offense.

Three runs came into seventh inning for the Rockets, the first off of a solo home run by Chandler Rice.

Samantha Showalter then got herself on base after a passed ball. Kaitlyn Bergman added two RBIs to her stat sheet after she sent a homer into right field and scored two more for

the Rockets.

That would be the last run scored in the game for Toledo, leading to a 7-3 win for the Falcons.

Senior Jamie Kertes struck out a season-high seven batters in the game. Sophomore Briana Combs closed out the rest of the game, striking

out five.

The next game was a shutout for the Falcons, scoring another four runs en route to a 4-0 win.

Three Falcons got an RBI in the game, Chloe Giordano and Molly Holliday each with one and Trista Mokienko with two.

The team added another consecutive game with runs scored in the first inning, with two.

The first came off of a Holliday RBI sending Searle across home plate. The second was off of a Giordano double to left field, knocking in Holliday.

The only other runs came in the fourth inning. With Cobbs and Holliday on first and second, Mokienko doubled to left field and sent both base runners to home plate to end the game.

The Falcons will be in action again at Detroit

on Tuesday.
