The Falcons close the tournament as the runner-up and will wait to hear what the postseason brackets will look like. The NCAA Selection Show was to be on ESPNU on Dec. 1 at 8:30 p.m. with the NIVC selecting their competitors soon after. 
Katelyn Meyer moved up the all-time list for single season attack attempts with 54 on the night, now with 1,287 which puts her fifth all-time. Of the 54 attempts, Meyer landed a team-high 19 kills. She was named to the All-Tournament Team.
The Mid-American Conference announced the All-Conference Honorees for the regular season. Of those named, the Falcons claimed two recognitions. Sophomore Katelyn Meyer was named to the All-MAC First Team for the second time after being named last year as well. Sophomore Julia Walz was also recognized, being named an All-MAC Honorable Mention. 
Meyer led BGSU in kills over the regular season, including 244 kills in conference play, maintaining a .227 hitting percentage and averaging 4.07 per set while playing in 60 of 62 MAC sets. All four of Meyer's 20-plus kill matches came during MAC play.
She also contributed defensively, logging three block solos and 15 block assists during conference play and adding 52 digs to her line also. From the service line, Meyer registered all four of her aces on the season against MAC opponents. Meyer was also named MAC East Offensive Player of the Week twice this season, both following MAC weekends.
This is the second time Meyer has been named to the All-MAC First Team after being named last year as well. She was also named to the All-Freshman Team a year ago. 
In early November, Meyer claimed the East Division recognition for MAC Offensive Player of the Week. This came after the Falcons completed a 1-1 weekend, which included a 3-0 sweep over Ohio on Saturday (Nov. 2). This marked the second time this season Meyer was named, after she was also named following Week 5 (Sept. 30). 
Meyer registered a top two total for kills in both matches that weekend and had the highest total on Saturday. Against Kent State Friday, Meyer notched 20 kills for her third 20-plus kill match of the season, and her career. Meyer also added a solo block to her line against the Golden Flashes. As for Ohio on Saturday, Meyer led the team in kills, totaling 17 over the three sets while maintaining a .250 hitting percentage.
        Earlier in the season, Bowling Green kicked off their campaign at the Golden Dome Invitational on August 30 and 31. Bowling Green began the tournament by topping Wright State in four sets, but fell short to La Salle in five sets and then Notre Dame in four, bringing their record to 1-2 after the first tournament of the year.
        Following the Golden Dome Invitational, 5-foot-10 sophomore outside hitter Katelyn Meyer was named to the All-Tournament Team. Meyer registered a career high 18 kills against Wright State. Against Notre Dame, Meyer registered nine kills.
        Last year as a freshman, Meyer was named All-MAC first team, appearing in 29 matches and playing in 95 sets. Meyer averaged 2.81 kills per set to become the team’s leader in kills with 267 and recorded a season high of 16 kills versus Eastern Michigan, 14 kills and zero attacks errors for a .424 average in hitting efficiency versus Kent State, reached double-digit kills in 15 matches, registered a total of 15 service aces from the back line and put up 93 digs and 32 total blocks on the season.
        A four-year letter-winner at Eastwood for both the volleyball and track and field programs, Meyer also played club with the Premier Volleyball Academy. At Eastwood, she was a four-time all-conference honoree and earned back-to-back Northern Buckeye Conference and Ohio District 7 Player of the Year accolades, totaling 1,482 kills in her four-year career and helping the team post a 52-2 record over her final two seasons.
        In the Mid-American Conference volleyball preseason poll, Bowling Green was picked to finish second in the East Division, as voted on by the conference's 12 head coaches. The Falcons received two votes to win the regular season, and four votes to win the 2019 MAC Tournament. 
        Miami was picked to win the East Division, regular season title and tournament title with Ball State being picked to win the MAC West. Miami, Bowling Green, Ohio and Western Michigan received votes to win the regular-season with OU's eight votes topping BGSU's two. Miami's six votes were the most for the tournament champions, followed closely by Bowling Green's four. 
        A year ago, the Falcons topped the MAC regular season standings, capturing the second of back-to-back MAC titles for the Orange and Brown. Bowling Green won their exhibition match against Gannon, 3-1, on August 24.
