Meyer, teammates and coaches, honored by Senate

State Senator Theresa Gavarone (R-Bowling Green) recognized student athletes and coaches from the Bowling Green State University women's volleyball team, women's soccer team and men's soccer team as the Mid-American Conference (MAC) champions and appearances at the NCAA Division I tournaments.
Women’s basketball coach Robyn Fralick, volleyball coach Danijela Tomic and men’s soccer coach Eric Nichols were also recognized for being the MAC Coach of the Year for their respective sports.
“This is truly an incredible accomplishment, and all of these student athletes and coaches should be extremely proud of themselves," said Gavarone. "The BGSU athletic program has a history of excellence and these champions have made us all proud, both off the field and court and most certainly on."
The Bowling Green volleyball team, led by 5-10 junior outside hitter Katelyn Meyer (Eastwood), captured the Mid-American Conference regular season title and the MAC tournament championship. The Falcons competed in the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2012. Facing Weber State, the Orange and Brown ended up on the short end of a 3-1 final.
Meyer finished the season with 327 kills and went over 1,000 kills for her career late in the season. Meyer was awarded the MAC volleyball tournament MVP award following the Falcons' MAC tournament championship at the Stroh Center.
The Falcons capped off a season that included the best start in BGSU athletic department history at 18-0, the most consecutive wins in program history at 18 and just the third NCAA tournament bid in program history. The 22-2 record results in a .917 winning percentage which will go into the record book as the best season ever recorded in BGVB history.
