The building continues for Petra Martin, now in her fourth season as the head swimming coach at Bowling Green State University.
The Falcons swim in the Mid-American Conference championships starting Thursday at the SPIRE Institute in Geneva.
Bowling Green, competing without a diving team, was third in the MAC last season. It was BG's best finish at the MAC since 2004 when the Falcons were also third. BG's best finish in the last two decades was a second in 1993.
''It has definitely been a journey. I kind of had to rework the whole culture of the program, and change things around. That obviously takes some time,'' Martin said. ''The first few years were definitely tough, implementing all of those changes, and getting the young women on board. It's the way we train, the way we approach things, how we want them to think, how we want them to practice.''
Martin said things started to come together last year, and the progress has continued this season even with a young team.
''They are a very talented group. They come here because they bought into what we were selling, and our philosophy of doing things,'' Martin said.
''The culture thing if you don't keep an eye on it, it's very easy to slip back to bad habits,'' she added.
This season, BG was 6-3 in dual meets, winning five straight duals to close out the season. The Falcons are ranked No. 50 in the country by CollegeSwimming.com.

OXFORD — Different day and opponent, but the same familiar scenario for the Bowling Green men’s basketball team Sunday.
Miami made a 15-0 run early in the first half to take a lead it would never lose on the way to a 55-52 victory.
‘‘We didn’t answer the bell ... We put ourselves in a little bit of a hole,’’ BG head coach Louis Orr said about the first half.
The Falcons have lost five of their last six games and are 11-16 overall and 5-9 in the Mid-American Conference. The last four losses have been by a combined eight points.

Bowling Green’s hockey team had little to offer Friday night in the Ice Arena.
The Falcons generated little offense, didn’t defend well and their goalies weren’t sharp.
All of that coming against the United States U-18 national team. BOX SCORE PHOTO GALLERY
The result was a 6-1 loss for the Falcons in an exhibition contest that doesn’t count on BG’s record.
The U.S. took a 3-0 lead in the first period and never allowed the Falcons closer than two goals the rest of the way.   WCHA SCORES WCHA STANDINGS
Bryce Williamson scored for the Falcons, and Tomas Sholl and Tommy Burke combined for only 20 saves.
The U.S. held a 26-24 edge in shots.

BUFFALO — In a game which featured five ties and 18 lead changes, the Bowling Green Falcon women’s basketball team pulled away from Buffalo in the final four minutes on the way to a 73-63 victory Saturday.
‘‘I knew today we would have to grind out some plays offensively. Buffalo is an extremely physical team,’’ BG head coach Jennifer Roos said.
BG clinched no worse than the fourth seed for the Mid-American Conference tournament, which would earn the Falcons at least a double-bye and a game in the quarterfinals.
Buffalo’s final lead was at 57-56 with 4:20 remaining in the game.
