It was a weekend of mixed emotions from the disappointment of a 3-0 loss at Akron to the jubilation of a comeback 5 set win (17-15) at Buffalo.
This week should be an exciting week with Miami coming to town on Thursday night and Western Michigan on Saturday evening. Saturday we will be recognizing Alumnae and the All-Anderson Team! It should be a great event as we close the doors on the Anderson Arena era (what I think we should call the Denise Van De Walle era with 28 years invested in Anderson) with some of the best players in BGSU history sitting in the stands. I can’t wait!
Things that make you go hummmm…
Paige Penrod holds the Ohio High School state record for most kills in a match. As a freshman she is leading the Falcons with an impressive 3.02 kills-per-set. However, this week Paige showed off her back court skills and was selected MAC East Defensive Player-of-the-Week. She had more digs than any Libero in the East Division this week. Not bad for a left side know for her hitting.
Conference Stat Leaders:
Ashley Dunn 3rd in Service Aces-Per-Set .62
Kari Galen 2nd in Blocks-Per-Set 1.17
Paige Penrod 5th in Digs-Per-Set 4.25
Ashley Dunn 10th in Digs-Per-Set 3.75
BGSU as a team 1st in Blocks-Per-Set 2.88
Recently one of our incoming players was named National High School Player-of-the-Week. She also got her 1,000 career kill and 1,000 career dig. We can’t mention her by name yet, but we are so proud that she will be wearing a Falcon Jersey! Congrats…
I was reading our game notes on BGSUFalcons.com and found out that BG is 26-9 in five set matches since 2005. That's doing well under pressure!
