Brooke Pleger wasn't happy when her high school track and field coach told her to practice with the team's throwers.
The Bowling Green redshirt junior saw herself as a sprinter at the time - not a thrower of the discus or the shot put.
Now, approximately seven years later, the Saline (Mich.) High School graduate could be an NCAA champion thrower next season.
She's already a two-time All-American in the hammer throw with the Falcons.
The slender but powerfully-built 5-foot-8 Pleger finished third in the NCAA meet last month after a seventh-place finish the previous season.

Mark Friedman expected to start playing college hockey at Bowling Green last fall.
But a mix-up in his high school transcripts prevented him from joining the Falcons.
The delay ended up helping his development.
And now he's flourishing.
The defenseman was selected by the Philadelphia Flyers in the third round of last weekend's NHL Draft.
He was the 86th player chosen. The Flyers have four years to sign him, allowing the Toronto native to begin his BG career this fall.
The 5-foot-10, 185-pounder has emerged as a player who can be trusted in all situations, and can skate on the power-play and penalty-killing units.

Former Bowling Green State University hockey player Rob Blake is headed for the NHL Hall of Fame.
Blake was selected Monday to be inducted in November.
The Hall of Fame class also includes centers Mike Modano and Peter Forsberg, former Detroit Red Wings goalie Dominik Hasek, coach Pat Burns and referee Bill McCreary.
“The Bowling Green Hockey program is very proud of Rob for this fantastic honor. His accomplishments in the NHL make this decision very fitting,” current Falcon hockey coach Chris Bergeron stated in a news release.
At BGSU from 1987-90, the Simcoe, Ontario native recorded 104 points (39 goals, 65 assists), including 18 power play goals, a shorthanded goal and three game-winners in 131 games. His 368 penalty minutes are tied for third-most in school history.
Blake earned second team All-CCHA honors in 1988-89, helping the Falcons into the CCHA Championships for the eighth-consecutive season. Tied 2-2 at Michigan, Blake’s goal at 2:54 of the third overtime ended the fourth-longest game in school history and handed the Falcons the third and deciding game of the series.

Flashes from Gordon: Bringing Mingo back may not be the right decision (06-18-14) PDF Print E-mail

Random thoughts while thinking the World Cup will be a success if the champion isn't Mexico or a European country:

TOUGH CALL: Dajon Mingo is returning to the Bowling Green Falcon hockey team this fall.
We're not sure it's the right decision, but it's a decision we're glad we didn't have to make.
The redshirt junior was ineligible for the second half of last season, the third major academic strike against him.
Head coach Chris Bergeron, and assistant coaches Barry Schutte and Ty Eigner would have been well justified in kicking Mingo off the team when he became ineligible in December.
Instead, they gave Mingo his fourth chance and he regained his eligibility during the spring semester. But will it last?
