‘Forward Falcon’ writer given day of recognition By Kendra Clark In Focus Editor

Even though the University lost the Military Bowl last December, not everyone who was cheering for the Falcons was disappointed. Along with students and staff who may have been watching the game, another person in California was Wayne watching. And for the first time, Bohrnstedt he heard the song he wrote for the Wrote the University played by the marching University band. fight song His name is Wayne Bohrnstedt “Forward and he wrote the “Forward Falcon” fight song. The song was first perFalcon” formed by the marching band in 1948, and this year is the 65th anniversary of the band playing the song. Janet Parks, a retired faculty member, reached out to Bohrnstedt after writing a book with Ann Bowers about women in sports. They wanted to title their book “Forward Falcons” so Parks reached out to get his permission in 2005. Parks said the two stayed in contact through email and several months ago, she got another email from him. “It said, ‘last December, I watched Bowling Green play in the Military Bowl and I heard the song play three times,’” Parks said. “’So my sons and I decided it was time for a road trip to Bowling Green.’” Bohrnstedt, at 90 years old, flew from California to Toledo Friday night and watched the football game against Toledo Saturday afternoon with his family. “They are making this a very special day for him,” said Ann Bowers, an archivist in the University library. Bohrnstedt said he’s been planning this for a

aving access to new food options, while also having a meal plan to purchase them, may give students more options than they would have at home. Students have many different food options both on and off campus. “On campus, some students may snack on convenience foods just because the food is there,” Carrie Hamady, a dietetics instructor at the University said through an email. When access to snacks is limited, it is easier to be satisfied with a smaller snack, said Daria Blachowski-Dreyer, registered dietician and associate director of Food Services. Since students on campus have many different options, students may think they are more hungry than they really are.

CAMPUS brief

University website to experience more changes

John Ellinger, chief information officer for Information Technology Services, spoke about more upcoming changes to the University’s online services at the fourth Graduate Student Senate general meeting Friday afternoon. In November or early December, students and faculty will have access to SkyDrive, a file sharing service that will give users 25 GB of personal storage space. The current service, MyFiles, will eventually be phased out, Ellinger said. This January, the 12-year-old BGSU.edu homepage and all pages within it will be replaced with an Adobe system. The search engine on the page will also be redesigned for better organization, he said. “There are 44,000 pages without a date on any of them,” Ellinger said. “You want something current, you can’t get it.” The Alert BG program, which is currently an opt-in program, will become an opt-out program, meaning everyone will be automatically signed up to receive emergency alerts, he said. Next semester, a new application called SharePoint will give users access to lite versions of Word, Excel and PowerPoint, which they can continue to use after graduating, Ellinger said. “Lite version has about 80 percent of all the tools that everybody uses,” he said. Also during the meeting, the senate voted unanimously to pass a resolution supporting the Not In Our Town campaign. “I’m glad the resolution was passed so we can have

official support,” said Lingxiao Ge, GSS President. “Even though the GSS has always been supporting the campaign, I’m glad that we eventually had the official support.” The next GSS meeting will be Nov. 8 in the McFall Gallery from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

USG fills senate seats, first full cabinet since this past year

Starting Monday night, the Undergraduate student body will see a full cabinet in student government, which has been a work in progress since the beginning of the school year. “The last two [senate seats] will be confirmed on Monday to all be full,” said President of Undergraduate Student Government Alex Solis. Since Solis came into office, he has created new positions in order to help spread the responsibility between the members involved with USG. “We have created two new positions last year,” he said. “We now have a lot of new people with a lot of new ideas.” Solis filled the senate in his last term as well, when he served for the first time this past year, but others in the past haven’t been able to fill all the positions, Solis said. “Senate is a revolving door,” he said. “It’s really hard to keep a full senate. Last year, we filled the cabinet by mid October, but people had to drop out because of class schedule conflicts.” However, Solis is confident this year won’t be a repeat of this past year’s dropouts. “Looking around the room in the meetings at people at the table,” he said, “I’m confident these are the people we will finish the term with.”

CREATIVE WRITING SERIES | 1 of 2

Creative Writing MFA program graduates top in job placement, publishing By William Channell Reporter

The University Creative Writing Master of Fine Arts Program was recognized in Poets and Writers maga zine, which ranked it 15 in the nation in terms of job placement. Wendell Mayo, a professor in the creative writing department, said the ranking was based mainly on teaching jobs, but also indirectly ref lects authors who are published. The program, which was founded in 1967, has historically been highly regarded, especially in recent years, with 73 books by alumni and students being published between 2008 and 2012.

Students and alumni have also received 53 documented awards and recognitions between 2008 and 2012. “In order to get a tenured job, you need at least one book published,” Mayo said. “So you can look at all [our] writers at colleges and universities teaching and you can just about bet that each one of them has at least one book published.” Mayo said this emphasis on publishing sets up students to be more credible to employers. “We don’t teach people writing,” Mayo said. “We teach people to be writers.” The program teaches students how to be good writers, but it also teaches them how to be successful as writers, by being

able to get published, Mayo said. Lawrence Coates, another professor in the creative writing department, mirrored Mayo’s statement, saying few writers make a living just writing. In fact, most graduates go on to teach. Because of this, the program tries to make their writers wellrounded. “Half or more than half of our MFA students are published,” Coates said. “To get a job in which you are teaching creative writing, it’s important to be published.” Tricia Reno, a BFA student in the program, said she came to the University because of its

Sporting events more than entertainment Falcons’ Fighting Hunger gives athletes way to help those in need By Seth Weber Web Editor

Falcons Fighting Hunger began as an incentive for student athletes to exchange food donations for fewer practice hours, but it has grown to include everyone in the community. The Student Athlete Adv isor y Com m it tee runs Fa lcons Fighting Hunger, which ta kes place at sporting events and is a program to collect donations for the Christian Food Pantry in Bowling Green. Emily McClelland, vice president of personal development for SA AC, said the event has grown throughout the year with this past year, being the biggest turnout of volunteers and food donations they’ve ever had, bringing in more than 500 cans of food. Waller said she hopes this year brings in even more. “We didn’t do volleyball last year, so we’re hoping to get even more this year,” Waller said. Waller said the event is a good way for athletes to help the community.

SONG From Page 1 while. “The first time I heard the song played was at the bowl game last year,” he said. “I was very proud.” Parks found talking with Bohrnstedt was easy when making contact about coming to the University. “A more gracious person, you would never meet in your life,” Parks said. “This man was so kind to me. He is a very well respected

“I think it’s a really great program because it involves getting the student athletes involved in the community and helps them reach out to communit y members,” Waller said. If guests don’t bring food with them, they can ma ke monetar y donations, said Shirley Woessner, director of the Christian Food Pantry. “A lot of times people want to donate, but they just didn’t know about it so they just hand us cash donations,” McClelland said. Donations ca n be given during the hockey game Nov. 2, the volleyball game Nov. 9 and the football game Nov. 12, McClelland said. Food and cash donations go to the Christian Food Pantry in the city. Woessner said they serve approximately 200 to 300 people a month and are always in need of donations. “Donations are down, but we accept anything we can get,” Woessner said. Woessner said while there are homeless in the city, many people who

come have a home, but just not enough income to buy food. “The people that come to us generally have a place to live but the income they have, if they have income, isn’t enough to pay the bills,” she said. After paying for things such as rent and utilities, many don’t have enough money for food, Woessner said. The pantry is “like a grocery store,” she said. “We give t hem food a nd we a lways have information for them for where they can get help,” she said. Though food donations are needed, cash donations are useful for the pantry as well. Woessner said they use the funds at the Northwest Food Bank, where they can purchase cheap food and get some free items.

It’s called ‘Falcon Fantasia’ and it uses music from both the

President Mary Ellen Mazey decided to use his visiting the campus to declare Oct. 25 as Wayne Bohrnstedt Day. “I’m ver y humbled,” Bohrnstedt said.

However, when they are consumed in large portions or have boosts or toppings on them, it then becomes more like a meal, Blachowski-Dreyer said.

“People justify this type of snacking by hiding behind the word healthy,” Blachowski-Dreyer said. Calorie count is important when it comes to any meal. Depending on the type of food, calories can have either a positive or negative effect. “Make your calories count; be full of nutrients, be balanced and be a proper portion,” Hamady said through an email. One way for students to develop healthier eating habits is to be mindful of their school selections and the size of their portions. “This can be accomplished by writing things down or using an app or website such as MyFitnessPal,” BlachowskiDreyer said. “Once you can see what you are doing, you can see areas in which you are doing well in or areas that may need more work.”

Heart Breaking BG loses 4th meeting in row against University of Toledo, Falcons give up touchdown with less than 2 minutes in game

By Alex Krempasky Sports Editor

The BG football team lost its fourth consecutive meeting against the University of Toledo Rockets 28-25 Saturday in front of an attendance of 21,724 fans, a season-best for the Falcons. “It was such a let down,” senior linebacker Paul Swan said. “It tore me apart.” Swan said the only other time in his sports career that he’s been so upset from a loss was during his senior high school basketball season, when his team lost to a rival school in the playoffs. “We thought we were going to win it,” Swan said. “When our offense scored and we were up five, we were like ‘yeah, we’re going to win the game for this team,’ and it didn’t happen.” The Falcons started the game with a drive that included a 25-yard pass from quarterback Matt Johnson to tight end Alex Bayer, but the Falcons were stopped on a fourth down

conversion. On the following drive, Toledo scored a touchdown three minutes and 17 seconds later on a one-yard touchdown run by running back Kareem Hunt. After a quick three and out by BG, Toledo took control of the rest of the first quarter. The Rockets were able to extend their drive through the end of the first quarter and nearly five and a half minutes of the second quarter. BG helped extended Toledo’s drive eight minutes and 55 seconds with a roughing the kicker penalty on a field goal try and an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on a third down and goal play. On the following play Toledo quarterback Terrance Owens threw a five-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Alonzo Russell to put the Rockets up 14-0. The Falcons went three and out on the following drive and Toledo scored the following drive to make the score 21-0 with 4:27 left to play in the first half.

“They’re too good of a football team to spot a 21-0 lead to,” BG head coach Dave Clawson said. “We did some things that I think (are) uncharacteristic of our team. Certainly the roughing the kicker and personal foul is very disappointing.” BG then ended the first half with a strong drive that resulted in a one-yard rushing run by Johnson. At the end of the half, BG trailed 21-7. “We’re just starting slow and somehow we’ve got to change that,” offensive lineman Dominic Flewellyn said. “We can’t start slow against a good team, especially a rival.” The Falcons started the second half kicking off to Toledo, but the touchdown at the end of the first half started a snowball effect that gave BG a lot of momentum in the second half. Owens fumbled on Toledo’s first drive of the half on a sack by linebacker Gabe Martin, and BG took the ball down the field to the goal

line. However, Flewellyn halted a potential touchdown before it could come to fruition on fourth and goal on the one-yard line due to a false start penalty. “I jumped,” Flewellyn said. “I knew the cadence, I just got over-anxious because I knew it was on the line. So, I jumped.” The Falcons had to settle for a 23-yard field goal from kicker Tyler Tate, which made the score 21-10 with 8:46 left in the third quarter. BG’s defense kept the momentum going into Toledo’s following drive and forced them to punt after less than five minutes later. BG’s next drive consumed the final three minutes and 47 seconds of the third quarter and the Falcons scored on the second play of the fourth quarter on an eight-yard run by running back Travis Greene. Instead of sending out the kicking team for the extra-point, Clawson made the decision

BG, Hartwick draw in double overtime during weekend Falcons tie first conference game of season on Senior Night By Tiffany Williams Reporter

The Falcons tied Hartwrick 1-1 at Cochrane field this Saturday Oct. 26 in a double overtime game, making their record 5-6-5 overall and 2-1-1 in the MidAmerican Conference. Saturday was also Senior Night for the men’s soccer team and before the game started, 10 seniors were recognized in a ceremony. In the game, BG outshot Hartwick 18-11 and also attempted more corner kicks than Hartwick did 6-4. Hartwick had more saves than BG did 6-5. BG’s goalkeeper, Michael Wiest had all five saves for his team. Hartwick took a quick lead against BG with 33 minutes past in the game. Wiest came off his line and tried to leap for the ball, but the ball was taken from him and Hartwick made the goal

“I think it was a fair result, I think it was an even game.” Eric Nichols | Head Coach

giving them the 1-0 lead. The Falcons were able to tie up the game at the 66:25 mark when Midfielder Brandon Silva took a corner kick from the southeast corner of the field. “I think it was a fair result,” said head coach Eric Nichols. “I think it was an even game. The possessions were even, chances were pretty even, so the result is fair and I will say I have a lot of respect for Hartwick.” The Falcon’s season is coming to a quick end with three games left. They have a week until their next game on Nov. 2 at 1 p.m., when the team will be headed to

Kalamazoo, Mich., to face another MAC team, Western Michigan. Three days later on Nov. 5, they will be back home for the last home game of the season to face Indiana Purdue-Fort Wayne at 7 p.m. Three days after that, they will head to Morgantown, West Virginia to play the last game of the season against another MAC team. After these three games are played, the MAC Tournament Semifinals will start. The place is to be announced since it will take place at the regular season champion’s site. BG is sitting at the number three spot. Akron is at the top spot with a record of 4-1-0 in the MAC and Western Michigan is at the second spot with a 2-0-1 record in the conference. BG is hoping to advance their record, with two more MAC games left they might be able to grab a higher spot on the MAC division standings.

In today’s day and age, should people be surprised by the lack of privacy offered in society? Should politicians be upset at the United States because of allegations of wiretapping? Just recently Angela Merkel, chancellor of Germany, found out that the National Security Agency was tapping her phone records. The news doesn’t come as a surprise to most Americans, as the recent headlines within the past few months have shown that the NSA is spying on many international officials including Dilma Rousseff, the president of Brazil. Most of these leaders

were infuriated by the breach in their privacy, but why should they care? In today’s era of technological innovation, everyone from government officials to normal citizens have the potential to be monitored by agencies like the NSA, which has arguably some of the most sophisticated data mining resources in the world. It shouldn’t be any surprise to these officials or citizens that their information is being or could be accessed. What remains is the ethical code of privacy that is breached by countries internationally and when it comes to ethics, many people feel the U.S. is low on the list. Given the perceived reputation of U.S. security agencies, many ordinary U.S. citizens still feel surprised and offended

that their information is being accessed. What most of these people fail to realize is that they are already submitting most of their information by applying for credit cards and home mortgages. Third party companies with less credibility than the US government have access to your information whether you know it or not. Unfortunately, reading the fine print on documentation is a habit that’s still out of fashion for many people. Today’s college students fall into the same trap of leaking information more so than their older counterparts. Social media sites, like Facebook and Twitter, are consistently being monitored for data. It shouldn’t be surprising that most students leak more data on social media than they do through their

interactions face to face. The main motive behind reflecting on privacy concerns is to raise awareness of the fact that people are already giving up most of their information. Instead of leading a protest to riot about the recent government surveillances, take some time to reflect and think about your own data and information. The aspects of your privacy you have the most control of relate to your level of financial security as well as your ability to control your emotional expressions in public. Being disciplined in these approaches can significantly secure college students as well as adults in being in control of their information. Respond to Davood at thenews@bgnews.com

To optimists, however, America’s sun is rising and will soon wipe away the passing fog of national malaise. At present, the pessimists are certainly the larger group. A recent Gallup survey showed 82 percent of Americans believe the nation is going in the wrong direction. Indeed, there are many aspects of America’s current trajectory that are troubling and which pessimists use to justify their gloomy view of a setting sun. America’s infrastructure is becoming increasingly decrepit: the national debt is at $17 trillion and rising, American students are perform-

ing poorly compared to their peers abroad, and political dysfunction is hindering any attempt at meaningful reform or restoration. Thus, it appears that Americans are justified in their pessimism. With a situation so melancholy, one must wonder how the few optimists defend their view of a rising sun. Optimists never fail to point out that America has sur vived adversity before. They admit America’s challenges are great but believe we will overcome them just as we always have. America has endured British invasion, survived the ravages and divisions of the Civil War, defeated Japan and staged the D-Day invasion in World War II. America went to the moon and outlasted the Soviets during the Cold War. After terrorists destroyed American skyscrapers in the tragedy of 9/11, New York City witnessed the construction of One World Trade Center – the tallest tower in the Western Hemisphere. Therefore, optimists see America as more than capable of overcoming the current challenges of

IAN ZULICK COLUMNIST Distance and solitude have a way of changing hearts. This is always something that I’ve known. It’s always been sitting silently at the back of my mind, waiting for an opportunity to make itself clear. When I entered college, I was so sure about what I wanted to do, but the more I think about it, as time has marched on, I’ve only grown progressively less sure of who I am and what my purpose is on Earth. To be completely honest, improving my French was only half the reason I decided to study abroad and a weak half at that. If anyone had the opportunity I was fortunate enough to have, I think most people would take it. Whether their reason is to meet new people, learn about foreign cultures or to forget Ohio and all our problems for a few wonderful months, which is why I went. Once the splendor of being in another country wore off, I found myself confronted with the same issues that have always plagued me. I have a poor

overall opinion of my appearance and of myself in general at times. I feel incredibly awkward in most social situations, I drink too much, I don’t know if there is a God or what form it takes and I am lonely. It was naive of me to think solving such a wide array of problems could possibly be as simple as stepping on and off of an airplane, but at least now I know this is the case. Whatever my issues though, I promised myself I would have a good time despite what went on back home before I left for Tours. It helped me to think more deeply about why my issues are what they are and how to solve them, but it still wasn’t enough. A few weekends ago, we took a bus ride to Normandy (in northern France) to see the A mer ica n cemeter y from W WII and a military museum at Caen. We stayed a night in a lovely hotel on the coast called La Marine, but what I enjoyed most about the trip had nothing to do with museums or statistics, or a misplaced regret I have of not continuing

Campus fraternities, sororities give money, time to philanthropies By Amber Petkosek Social Media Editor

While walking around campus Greek letters can be seen everywhere, but some students do not realize what the members of the Greek community do. As well as raising money for their philanthropies, they also give their time to different organizations to help. Each chapter in the Greek community has a philanthropy they raise funds for and give their services to. “It’s not based on the council that each chapter is within,” said Holly Grunn, coordinator for Fraternity and Sorority Life. “It is based on their national organization and what their national organization has chosen to support.” As well as each chapter having their own philanthropy chosen by their national chapter, the University Panhellenic council has also adopted a philanthropy as a council. T he ph i la nt h ropy is called The Circle of Sisterhood Foundation. “The organization was actually founded by a sorority woman,” Grunn said. “It is really there to help raise fund and raise awareness about women and girls worldwide and removing barriers to their education.” Grunn said the other councils may be looking for the opportunity to adopt a philanthropy for their councils in the

future. Dan Phillips, the president of Interfraternity Council, said there is a wide array of philanthropies that Greek life raises money for. Jeffery Hardin, president of the National PanHellenic Council, said the philanthropies that NPHC works with are similar to those of other chapters. “Ours are geared towards the same issues and problems going on in the country, but they attract a different crowd,” he said. NPHC is geared towards African-Americans and Hardin said the council generally attracts that population on campus. Hardin said because NPHC was founded on the basis of service, it likes to continue on with doing service and plan to in the future. Kappa Delta sponsors Prevent Child Abuse America, Tau Kappa Epsilon sponsors St. Jude’s, Delta Chi sponsors the Jimmy V Foundation, which helps with cancer research to name several. Phillips said Greek life raising money and working with philanthropies helps the members of the Greek community as well as the charity. “As college students we see that we need to be able to give back, whether that’s locally or nationally, we give our time, efforts and money to better people that are not as fortunate as we are and I think it gives a lot of peo-

ple a purpose,” he said. Jeff Kegolis, assistant dean of students, said the work the Greek community does for different philanthropies does not stop once a member graduates. “There is an idea of a life long commitment,” he said. “It’s not just part of the undergraduate experience. It’s part of a life long experience.” Kegolis said the way the services are done by the Greek communit y benefit people in many different ways. Casey Swick, the president of Panhellenic council, said people choose to stay involved with their chapter’s philanthropy because they have a passion for the cause when they join, or they develop passion for a cause after joining. One of the members of Kappa Delta, whose philanthropy is Prevent Child Abuse America, has become a social worker in Toledo and part of the reason she became interested was because of the philanthropy, Swick said. As a part of the Panhellenic Council’s philanthropy, Circle of Sisterhood Foundation, it wants to have $500 to give to the founder when she visits the University in November. Swick said each chapter has an indivudal goal for the amount of money it plans to raise for its philanthropy. “I’ve seen groups make impacts on the community through clean up

initiatives, through habitat for humanity initiatives. Some individuals have chosen to try and cultivate other students in terms of leadership and in terms of service,” she said. Andrew Slota, the vice president of scholarships and civic engagement for Multicultural Greek Council, said this year, the time they donate for service has a theme. Due to one of their members struggling with cancer, they have chosen to help with cancer research. “We are going to St. Judes and partaking in the cancer walk,” he said. Kegolis said students in Greek life often become successful individuals on campus. “A number of people say through their membership, they find a family or they find a brother/sister connection and through that connection it has led to their success as a student,” he said.

Swim team takes 7 events in loss at EMU

Falcons earn 126 points at dual meet in Ypsilanti By Katherine Wernke Reporter

The BG swimming team took seven out of 14 events in its first duel meet of the season in a 166-126 loss to Eastern Michigan University on Saturday. “It’s going to be a fast year for everyone, but we’re right up there with all the other guys,” head coach Petra Martin said. “So, it was good. I was happy with it.” The team started strong when it won the first event of the day, the 200-yard medley relay. The team, made up of Maya Skorupski, Daniela Carrillo, Joelle Scheps and Brittany Szekely, would end with a time of 1:45.88. Lara Klein would take third in the 1000 yard freestyle, scoring points for BGSU, finishing in 10:41.78. Freshma n Victoria Griffin brought in two individual wins for the Falcons in the 200 and 100 yard freestyles with times of 1:50.71 and 51.49, respectively. Joelle Scheps would come in second in the 200 freestyle while Brittany Szekely would come in second in the 100 freestyle. In event four, Skorupski went on to win the 100-

yard backstroke with a time of 57.52, just under two seconds before Eastern Michigan would come in for second. Later in the meet, Skorupski would take second in the 200 yard backstroke. In the 50 yard freestyle, Szekely came in first for BG finishing with a time of 23.67. The Falcons would win the last two events of the day in the 200-yard individual medley and 400 yard freestyle relay. BG earned the top three finishes in the 200 where Scheps came in first with a time of 2:07.20. Teammates Jordan Bullock and Kristin Filby followed in second and third. In the 400-yard freestyle relay, the team made up of Victoria Griffin, Kayla Effinger, Petra Laudova and Brittany Szekely would end the day in first place with a final time of 3:29.92. “It was interesting because this weekend, all the MAC schools were competing, so it was just kind of fun to see how all the other schools worked,” coach Martin said. The Falcons will head to Miami and Xavier for back-to-back meets this coming Friday and Saturday.

Rugby defeats Ball State Cardinals in weekend away match By Zack Carreon Reporter

Even when not at top form, the rest of the MidAmerican Conference is finding BG Rugby a formidable opponent. Despite numerous dropped passes, occasional lackluster tackling and several less than brilliant tactical decisions, the Falcons crushed Ball State University 67 - 10. “Taking a step back and looking at the game in the whole, the freezing cold, a 20 mph wind and the fact that we just came off a huge win the previous week against Northern Illinois, we were probably ripe for a down week,” said BG captain Dane Szente. “Fortunately we managed to pick the week we played against the last place team in the league.” The Cardinals finished their season on Saturday 0 -

16 and winless in the MAC for the second year in a row. “Maybe we were looking ahead a bit to the Miami game in two weeks, I don’t know,” said vice captain Mike Brown. “We won’t get away with the kind of performance against Dayton next weekend.” Both Miami and BG remain undefeated in the conference and everything is pointing to a league championship and post season play resting on the November 9 match in BG. The Falcons continue to show that they can attack from every point on the compass. Last fall, 340 of Bowling Green’s points came from just three players. This season the scoring has been pretty evenly spread out all over the first 15. Known in the past for a blazing fast backfield, the Falcons now have a seniorladen dominating forward pack to go with it.

BG’s power in the forwards was on display yesterday as they won 37 of the 46 scrums called in the game. The Cardinals were constantly knocked backwards while flankers Justin Stevens and Frank Viancourt harassed the Ball State scrum half unmercifully on any ball the Cardinals managed to win. The Falcons took the opening kickoff and before 15 seconds elapsed, wing Nolan Cavano had a try in the corner. From that point on, the Cardinals were in a fight to play catch-up with the Falcons. Cavano added another try and was joined in the end zone by center Trent Szente, flanker Justin Stevens, lock Bryan Kean and prop Dane Szente. BG tacked on five more tries in the second half, with three of those coming from Kean. Lock Mike Treon rumbled for a short yardage try and flanker

FOOTBALL From Page 3 to go for the two-point conversion and BG was successful in doing so thanks to a pass from Johnson to Bayer. This eight-point play cut Toledo’s lead to 21-18 with 14:34 left to play in the game. After another defensive stand by BG and a crucial offensive pass interference penalty, Toledo was forced to punt and Johnson led the offense down the field through the air to set up a 19-yard run and a sevenyard touchdown both by Greene, which put BG in the lead, 25-21, with 5:59 left in the game. This marked the first time BG led Toledo since the last time Toledo played at Doyt L. Perry Stadium in 2011. BG led Toledo 14-7 after three quarters of play in 2011. However, Toledo had different plans. Toledo capita li zed on BG’s emotions with a 32-yard pass from Owens to Bernard Reedy and an 11-yard run by Hunt. The Rockets then committed a false start, taking them back five yards, but Owens made up for it with an 11-yard run and a nineyard pass to Russell. Hunt was stopped on the following play for a loss of six yards but Owens stepped up again with another six yard run. Following that play, Clawson took a timeout to regroup. The next play Toledo was called for offensive pass interference, this took the Rockets back but Owens made a 17-yard run following the penalty. Toledo then took a timeout. On the next play, Owens threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Russell and

Justin Stevens added his second of the day. Scrum half Mike Powel also booted three conversion kicks. In the second match (nonleague), freshman wing Drew Salvagni scored twice and wings Ian Dalton and Cole Shaffer each scored one point. Scrum half Nick Ross also added a try of his own. Prop Josh Avallone’s three conversions gave BG a 31 - 15 victory. The Falcon’s freshman squad won their second in a row beating Kenyon College 28 - 12. Flanker Jon Adams, scrum half Ted Kilgore, prop Corey Bohach and wing Joey Lubera all scored tries and wing Andrew Slonkosky landed four conversion kicks. The Falcons are now 5 - 0 in the MAC and 17 0 overall. They will go to the University of Dayton to take on the Flyers at 1:00 p.m. next Saturday.

thanks to the extra-point, Toledo had a 28-25 lead with 1:22 left to play. On next drive, Johnson and Burbrink connected for a 10-yard pass and four-yard pass. Toledo stopped BG’s momentum with a sack by defensive back Junior Sylvestre. Johnson then threw twoconsecutive incomplete passes and turned the ball over on downs. Toledo then took a knee to end the game on the winning end. This loss marks the third loss by the Falcons t his season, putting their record at 5-3 and 3-1 in Mid-A merican Conference games. BG also falls to third in the MAC East Division standings with the University of Buffalo taking the lead with a 4-0 MAC record and the Ohio University Bobcats in second with a 3-1 conference record and a 6-2 overall record. Both Buffalo and Ohio are two of the Falcons’ four rema ining reg ular season opponents. BG hosts the Bobcats on Nov. 12 and travel to Buffalo on Nov. 29 to take on the Bulls at Ralph Wilson Stadium, home of the National Football League’s Buffalo Bills. BG will hit the road for its next game when they take on the Miami University RedHawks in Oxford, Ohio next Tuesday, Nov. 5. “[The loss against Toledo] is going to sting for day or two,” Swan said. “Once we get back, we’ve got to hit the ground running again and just know that our goals are still out there and we’ve got to come back and play hard against Miami.”

Women’s soccer loses, draws during weekend By Tara Jones Reporter

The BG women’s soccer team walked away with a 2-0 loss to Ball State and a 1-1 tie with Miami this weekend. The Falcons now have an overall record of 0-14-2 and a MAC record of 0-8-2. Ball State’s Victoria Jacobs scored just 37 seconds into the second half, breaking a 0-0 tie. Midway through the half, BSU’s Abbey Fiser scored to put the game away for the Cardinals. BG’s freshman goalkeeper, Jenna Ditusa, made her collegiate debut and made eight saves for the Falcons. Ball State had a narrow 19-18 advantage on shot attempts, but BG had the 2-1 advantage in corner kicks. The Cardinals advanced to 10-4-3 on the season and 5-2-2 in the MAC. Head coach Lindsay Basalyga said Friday’s match was a “fun” match for both the coaches and the players. She added that her team has nothing to lose with what little season they have left

and the players realized that and were able to have fun on the field. “I’ve told [the players] all year that happiness comes before success and we’ve got to enjoy playing the game if we want to put ourselves in the position to win games,” Basalyga said. The Falcons ended Sunday’s Senior Day match against Miami at a 1-1 tie after two overtimes. Miami struck first with an unassisted goal by Taylor Jackson just over three minutes into the second half. BG senior Kaitlyn Tobin retaliated with the Falcons’ lone goal assisted by Sidney Huth about two minutes later. Neither team scored the rest of the way, so the game ended at 1-1. Miami dominated in shot attempts, totaling 25 to BG’s 12, but the Falcons stayed in the game with freshman goalkeeper Jenna Ditusa’s saves. She earned eight saves while the RedHawks made none. Miami advanced to 9-6-3 overall and 6-1-3 in the MAC.

Tobin said it felt good to put up some stats on Senior Day. She said her team has been able to find a rhythm to settle themselves in offensively as they continue to look to establish themselves in practice. “I’m just really proud of my team for staying focused and working hard until the last minute,” Tobin said. Ditusa, who made eight saves in each match this weekend, said discipline is one of the team’s core values this season. She added that her team’s defense has been much more disciplined as the season progressed and has “come up big” in the last few games. She said she thinks the tie on Sunday will add momentum as the Falcons look to close out their regular season. “Every positive result we get gives us a little more confidence,” Ditusa said. “I mean, we’ve had a long season. It’s been kind of tough, but ... given this result against a top team like

Miami, going into [the] next game I’m pretty positive.” Coach Basalyga said she is proud of the fight and mentality shown by her team against the tough Miami team. Regarding the Senior Day celebration Sunday, Basalyga said she uses her seniors as examples in the locker room because of their commitment to the program despite their “nontraditional” journey. “This is a group [of seniors] that hasn’t won many games and they easily could have shut down, but their leadership through the last couple of weeks of the season ... that’s really what we’re going to miss,” Basalyga said. “They’re definitely paving the way for the players below them to show them what this picture should look like.” The Falcons travel to Central Michigan on Thursday, Oct. 31 in their last regular-season match of the year. The match is set to kick off at 3 p.m.

This experience changed me greatly, but for the better. I felt then something that I was only able to put into words once I returned to Tours. The connection I felt with nature and with myself was spiritual. This has done nothing to convince me of what religion I ought to follow. It’s done nothing to solve my problems. It’s done nothing to make me surer of anything about my future, but it offered me something far greater. I felt whole. For the first time in my life, I wanted nothing and as long as that knowledge and peace are with me, there is nothing I cannot do.
