  • 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. From my course, Queer Literature under Dr. Bill Albertini, I discovered Emezi’s Freshwater (2018). Once more, my course, Creative Writing Thesis Workshop under Professor Amorak Huey, was instructed to present our favorite […]

Andrew Hammond, BG goalie, makes a save during the Falcons’ 3-2 loss to Michigan during the CCHA semifinals earlier this season.

The BG hockey team held its end-of-season banquet this past weekend and goalie Andrew Hammond was named team MVP for the second consecutive season.

Hammond, a junior, was instrumental in the Falcons advancing to the Central Collegiate Hockey Association semifinals for the first time since 2001. He started all 44 games for the Falcons, posting a 2.73 goals-against average and a .903 save percent. He also recorded a career-high 14 wins.

Hammond played in 2,615 minutes this season, over 1,000 more minutes than he played this past season. However, his goals-against average took a small hike, up from 2.67 in 2010-11, and his save percent fell, down from .903.

Hammond also won the Jim Ruehl Best Defensive Player Award for the second straight season.

Newly-named co-captain Cam Wojtala won the Dr. Ron Zwierlein Leadership Award, while Ryan Carpenter, the other co-captain for next season, won the team’s Rookie of the Year Award and the Leading Scorer Award.

Carpenter had one of the strongest seasons of any BG freshman in program history. His 31 points were six more than any player on the team, and his 19 assists were five more than any other player.

Andrew Wallace won the Jack Gregory Award for scholar athlete, Cam Sinclair won the Coach’s Award, and Bryce Williamson was named the team’s most-improved player.
