A message from Director of Athletics, Bob Moosbrugger ’94 - The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a profound impact on our world, community and Falcon Athletics. We strive to be defined not by what we lost, but what we have achieved as we represent Bowling Green State University with pride and class in all areas of our department.

Bill Frack, a dedicated supporter of Falcon Men’s Basketball for 60 years, heard his last rendition of Ay Ziggy Zoomba in 2014, but the major gift he presented to the BGSU program prior to his death has kept Frack a very active and integral part of the team.

Diver, gymnast and field athlete represent the best of Falcon Athletics

As highly accomplished student-athletes, Kaila Butler, Talisa Lemke and Jovannah East were prepared to turn in their best seasons yet. All three had the goal of competing nationally in the post season, but these aspirations were cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite these season-ending disappointments, Lemke and East leave BGSU with their heads held high with exceptional academic performances and championship-level athletic accomplishments, while Butler looks forward to the coming season.
