  • Books I’ve Loved Recently
    By Jay Grummel In the fall my TBR (to be read) shifts from Fantasy to Literary Fiction. I’ve become a mood reader in my college years. Something about the coldness of the fall and winter influences the sadness of the books I’m reading. Recently, a few novels I deem to best of my 2023 reads. […]
  • Repairing the Family
    By Jay Grummel Earlier this month I wrote about fond families, however the holidays are made up of many different types of families. Some will be hostile and dysfunctional or some will be loving and understanding. Whatever your family looks like this season, it’s always nice to read about ones other than your own. So, […]

BG softball takes on four teams in Hilltopper Classic

With impressive pitching and hitting performances, the BG softball team will hope to continue its success as they head to Bowling Green, Ky. on Friday.

The Falcons are set to play Indiana State, Western Kentucky, Morehead State and Murray State Universities at the Hilltopper Spring Classic.

Despite the Falcon’s most recent game in Alabama having been canceled due to sub-freezing temperatures, the forecast for the Kentucky Tournament calls for the temperature to be in the high 50s.

Freshman Paris Imholz is coming off two fantastic games against Alabama State and Wright State, only giving up four hits in her first two starts. Imholz will be looked upon again along with the Falcons’ three other pitchers.

Hannah Fulk and Paige Berger both enter this tournament on three-game hitting streaks.

The games against Morehead State and Murray State will be played back-to-back Saturday morning. Coach Shannon Salsburg feels this is a great preparation for Mid-American Conference play, as most of the Falcons’ MAC games come on double headers.

“It’s actually a great preparation for the MAC,” Salsburg said. “It allows us to have depth on our pitching staff. You play the first game and figure out what you did in that game, and then you have another seven players ready for the second.”

One of the team’s biggest strengths is their aggressiveness and ability to manufacture runs, Salsburg said. This will be something the team will rely on throughout the season and into this Tournament.

Up first for the Falcons will be Indiana State Friday morning, followed by the home team Western Kentucky which has always been a consistently strong program. Western Kentucky, who upset top-5 team Michigan last year, will be a good challenge for the Falcons.

“Respect all, fear none,” Salsburg said looking ahead at the matchups while holding a strong belief that anyone can beat anyone. “That’s softball.”
