Nikki Chiricosta
Nikki Chiricosta has been able to handle and excel at every challenge thrown at her.
Currently a senior on the Bowling Green State University tennis team, Chiricosta comes from a tennis-oriented family. She has had a racket in her hands since age 5.
Her parents both played tennis at the University of Toledo, and her mother, Shelia, was the head coach at BGSU for three seasons before current head coach Penny Dean took over in 1990.
Nikki’s two siblings, Matt and Christine, were both standout players in college, earning recognition for their play and for academics.
Christine preceded Nikki at BGSU and was the career leader in singles victories and combined victories before Nikki broke both records this season.

Mark Downey has accepted an assistant men’s basketball coaching position at Bowling Green State University according to a published report in the Charleston (W. Va.) Daily Mail.
Downey worked with new BG head coach Chris Jans for one year at Independence College.
“He’s like a mentor to me,” Downey told the newspaper about Jans. “We kept in contact and became really good friends. It was an honor when he called and offered me the job. He’s seen a lot of places, met a lot of people and has an extensive Rolodex. I really trust him, he’s a good coach and he’s going to do really well.”
This will mark Downey’s third time in Division I. He served as an assistant coach at New Orleans for five seasons and was the director of operations at Marshall for two seasons.
Most recently he was the head coach at West Alabama.
“I always thought that if I’d get the chance I’d go back to the Division I level and said I would go back with someone I knew and someone I trusted,” Downey told the newspaper.

Danny Schmitz
When Bowling Green Falcon baseball coach Danny Schmitz looks across the field this weekend, he'll see a familiar face in Akron's dugout.
His son, Spencer.
The father and son will go head to head when their teams play Friday, Saturday and Sunday in a Mid-American Conference series at Akron.
Danny Schmitz is in his 24th season as BG's head coach, while his son is in his first season as an assistant Akron.
Spencer Schmitz moved to Akron after serving as an assistant under his dad for six seasons.
The only times the two have coached against each other was in the Brown and Orange World Series, which concludes BG's fall practices each year.
"It's exciting, but it's going to be different," the elder Schmitz said. "It should be a lot of fun."
The two still talk on the phone 2-3 times each week and they check the results of each other's games as soon as their own game is over.
"It'll be a hard week for both of us," said Spencer Schmitz, who played for the Falcons from 2001-04. "I can't say I'm really looking forward to it a lot."

According to a published report in the Terre Haute Tribune Star, David Ragland has agreed to be an assistant men’s basketball coach at Bowling Green State University with new head coach Chris Jans.
Ragland has been an assistant coach for the last four years at Indiana State.
“Chris Jans is someone everyone on our staff knows pretty well,” Ragland told the Tribune Star. “I’ve known him for about 10 years. It’s someone we trust and respect. He’s like us. He’s a hard worker. My knowing him is how it came about.”
Ragland’s wife, Annie, has family near Bowling Green.
“My wife will be moving closer to her family, and it’s a place where I’ve had success recruiting in Ohio. The way their program is moving and how progressive they want to be, it kind of makes sense,” Ragland told the Tribune Star.
