Koch, Pleger named academic All-MAC
Bowling Green State University's Abby Koch and Brooke Pleger were named to the women's indoor track and field Academic All-Mid-American Conference team, as voted on by the faculty athletic representatives from the member institutions.
Andrea Alt, from Perrysburg High School, Jasmine Redman, Maria Meredith, Natalie Sommerville, Allison Weimer and Krystin Reiser earned honorable mention recognition.
Koch, a communication disorders major, holds a 3.852 grade-point average. Pleger, a nursing major, has a 3.837 GPA.
Pleger earns MAC recognition
Bowling Green State University's Brooke Pleger was named the Mid-American Conference's field athlete of the week for the second consecutive week after posting the second-best hammer throw in the nation this year at the Northeast Ohio Invitational, hosted by Akron.
Pleger threw 212-9 to break her school record by more than seven feet, a mark she set just a week earlier to climb to third in the country. Her most recent throw surpassed the A standard for automatic qualification to the USA Track and Field Championship in June.
Her throw leaves her less than two feet shy of becoming one of the top 10 American collegiate hammer throwers of all-time.
Two from Owens honored
Owens Community College's Logan Shullick and Melanie Iacoangeli have been named the Ohio Community College Athletic Conference baseball and softball players of the week, respectively.
Shullick helped his team win three out of four games against Cuyahoga CC and hit .538 (7-for-13) in those four games. He had five runs, eight RBI and a double. In the team's final game of the week, Shullick went 4-for-4 with three runs and three RBI.
Iacoangeli helped the No. 15 Express softball team win three out of four games from conference opponents Lakeland CC and Sinclair CC. The leftfielder went 8-for-12 (.667) with six runs, nine stolen bases, three RBI and two walks.
