  • Lying in Memoir
    Lauren Slater crafts diligent, depictive metaphors in narrative, and I hate her writing, simultaneously. Should there be lying in memoir? In her book, Lying: A Metaphorical Memoir (2000), Slater crafts lies from epilepsy to nunneries to doctor visits and proposed peer reviewed theses to AA meetings. However, within these lies, she allows us to question […]

BG softball continues recent success with a 3-1 weekend record


Hannah Fulk, BG infielder, swings at a pitch during the Falcons’ 6-1 victory against Eastern Michigan on Friday.

Explosive first innings were the highlights of the Falcon softball team’s play this weekend as they went 3-1.

The Falcons hosted Eastern Michigan in a doubleheader on Friday, winning both games 6-1 and 7-1 respectively.

Strong hitting from Shelby Fink who had two RBI while Andrea Arney (1-for-3) and Erika Stratton (2-for-3) both recorded doubles. Hannah Fulk recorded a home run also, her sixth of the season.

BG game off rolling in the first inning, like they have all season, recording four runs off of just four hits. The first of these hits was Fulk’s homer which set the pace for the Falcons rout of Eastern Michigan.

An added single followed by a fielding error allowed Arney to double up giving her an RBI and an early Eagles pitching change. Fink singled up the middle, which brought home two more runs.

The Falcons managed to add two more runs in the game, one in the bottom of the fourth and each team added one more giving a final score of 6-1.

The Falcons continued their momentum in game two as they again routed 7-1. Fulk added another home run with two RBI, freshman Chole Giordano recorded her first two RBI game and Fink added another RBI.

This time the Eagles scored first, recording one run in the first inning. The Falcons responded in the second with three runs off of three hits.

BG went on to score four more runs in the contest as Eastern Michigan never really got involved, highlighted by Hulks seventh home run of the season.

A hot start welcomed Central Michigan to town for two games one each on Saturday and Sunday.

The first game the Falcons dropped the Chippewas 3-2, and the second matched the score but saw the Falcons lose 3-2.

Katie Yoho led game one with a two-run homer and back and forth pitching between Jamie Kertes and Paris Imholz allowed the Falcons to prevail.

BG started out with a run in the first inning of off two hits. Rachel Proehl singled up but was able to move to third off of a fielding error. The team tried a double steal to bring Proehl home, but the attempted was snuffed out.

Central Michigan responded in the third with a solo home run to tie the game at 1-1, but Fulk matched with her own home run in the fourth bringing in two runs, rounding out the score to 3-1.

The Chippewas threatened in the fifth inning by scoring one run and had bases loaded on no outs. Imholz came in the game and recorded all three outs to secure the 3-2 win for the Falcons.

“That was a fantastic win for us,” said coach Shannon Salsburg. “The great thing is that it took the entire team.”

The Falcons were unable to repeat and lost a close game Sunday 3-2 , splitting their weekend series with Eastern Michigan. The Falcons are now 25-16 with a 9-3 record in the Mid-American Conference, and will host Eastern Kentucky on Wednesday.
