Sports Brief: BG swimming opens regular season

The Falcon swim team will open up their regular season Friday against both Ashland and Wayne State.

In the preseason the Falcons dominated the Tom Stubbs Relays winning eight of the 10 races while setting three meet records. The meet included this past season’s MAC Champions Toledo.

BG’s swimming star, senior Emily Bennet is top three in Falcons history as a sprinter. Bennet swam in five winning relays at the Tom Stubbs and was named to her first career MAC Swimmer of the week.

This past season the Falcons finished eighth in the MAC while having a 0-6 regular season record. The Falcons do not field a diving team which is a prime result for many of their past losses. Already starting off so strong, the Falcons will look to improve from this past season starting Friday. The meet starts at 3 p.m.
