  • Review of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
    Let’s time-travel to the year 2012 and the world is raving about none other than Katniss Everdeen. I remember being in elementary school, begging my mother to let me dress up as her for my birthday. Now it’s over ten years later and I’m still just as excited for the new movie as I was […]
  • Found Family Books for the Holidays
    The holidays are quickly approaching and for some of us that means seeing our family. However, family has a loose definition. It could mean blood or who you were raised with. It could also mean people you’ve found during your life journey. Either way, the holidays are meant for spending quality time with those you […]

Cross Country finishes regular season at Bradley Classic

The BG men’s and women’s cross country teams completed their last meet of the regular season up with the Bradley Classic Friday afternoon.

The men left Illinois with a 15th place team finish, as they completed the 8K course in a total of 2:11.57. “We took a nice step today as a team,” said Coach Lou Snelling. “Especially as we approach our most important meets of the cross country season.”

Senior Josh Franek led the way for the men as he set a new personal best in the 8K with a time of 25.49 and finishing 55th. Tim Jurick finished second for the Falcons with a time of 26.09 and overall 80th place. Junior Perry Fraylick rounded out the Falcon top three with a personal best time of 26.28, just over one minute under his previous 8K low.

“Josh and Tim put together another good race,” Snelling said. “Perry also did well and had a huge lifetime PR to cross the line as our third runner.”

The women finished sixth as a team in the 6K, beating out 17 of the 23 teams. The girls finished with an overall time of 1:49.50.

Redshirt junior Abby Koch finished first for the women with a personal best time of 21.40 to earn a 17th place finish. Kendra Kezur finished behind her with a time of 21.48, a 26th place finish. Jasmine Redman, with a time of 21.56, and Andrea Alt, with a time of 21.57, were not far behind, finishing 31st and 34th.

“We handled the size and quality of the field well, especially considering over half of our top six are freshmen and redshirt freshmen,” Coach Snelling said. “The girls have put themselves in a realistic position to achieve their goals at MAC and NCAA Regional Championships.”

Bowling Green’s next meet comes Saturday Oct. 27, as the Falcons head back to Buffalo for the MAC Championships.
