Random thoughts while catching up after a busy March:

SITE CHANGE: It's time for the Ohio High School Athletic Association to move the semifinals and finals of the district high school hockey playoffs from Sylvania Tam-O-Shanter to the BGSU Ice Arena.
Tam-O-Shanter is an excellent facility that serves high school hockey well, and it can still host the first two rounds of the district playoffs.
But the Ice Arena is a nicer venue and better suited to host the larger crowds in the district semifinals and finals.
Hockey has out-grown Tam-O-Shanter, which has a capacity of approximately 1,800. But with a capacity of 5,000 the Ice Arena has plenty of room to accommodate every fan who wants to attend.
BGSU athletics department officials have contacted the OHSAA about the possibility of hosting district hockey games.

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Bill Robertson, the vice president of communications and broadcasting for the NHL’s Minnesota Wild from 1999-2011 was named the commissioner of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association, the league announced Tuesday.
Robertson takes over for Bruce McLeod, who is retiring at the end of the season.
Robertson, who is 53, will start in mid-May as McLeod assists with the transition.  McLeod’s last day is June 30 after 20 years in the position.
Robertson did not take any questions during the video streaming of the press conference. He did interviews after the press conference, but there was no conference call for those who couldn’t be in St. Paul.
“(Robertson) is a great leader who is well respected in the sports world,” Wild owner Craig Leopold said during a press conference at the Xcel Energy Center where the Wild play.
Robertson, who is from St. Paul, said he’d work to promote the WCHA and seek new revenue streams for the league.

Spring football is an opportunity for veterans to solidify things, and for backups and newcomers to make an impression.
In the case of the Bowling Green Falcons, under first-year head coach Dino Babers, it’s also a matter of learning a new system, and maybe even a change in roles.
The Falcons concluded spring drills with a 78-minute scrimmage Saturday that pitted the offense against the defense.
The offense had 434 yards in 137 plays, 370 yards passing and 164 yards rushing. Approximately 110 plays came in a traditional fashion, and the remainder were plays that started at the 20-yard line.
‘‘The thing that I wanted to get out of it, I wanted a hard fought contest with no injuries,’’ Babers said. ‘‘We have one young man headed to the hospital. I’m not going to mention his name right now. Hopefully that will come out negative.
‘‘For us to run 130-something plays and only have one guy go down, with the smacking and the speed that we were operating at, I’m really proud of the conditioning of this football team and where we are headed.’’

Carle's Corner: Falcon women add to legacy of program (4-4-14) PDF Print E-mail

Bowling Green’s women’s basketball team added to its legacy with 30 victories, a Mid-American Conference regular-season title, and a deep run in the WNIT.
The season ended Monday night with a 55-50 loss to Rutgers. Rutgers has advanced to play for the WNIT championship today at University of Texas-El Paso.
The three-player senior class — Alexis Rogers, Jillian Halfhill and Jill Stein — provided the spark and leadership for the Falcons all season. They are the ninth senior class in school history, and eighth straight, to be a part of at least 100 career victories.
‘‘The last three weeks, our seniors have really had a sense of urgency, and have also had a sense of ownership to this program,’’ BG head coach Jennifer Roos said. ‘‘Those three have been a mainstay for us.
‘‘This group right here, this ’13-14 women’s basketball team with those three kids as seniors ... they are in the record book,’’ she added.
