While the 18th-ranked Marietta women’s basketball team will be making the three-and-a-half hour trip across the state to play 14th-ranked Ohio Northern on Saturday, in a way, the two programs are meeting in the middle.

The Northern Review's 'ONU Athletics Year in Review': 2017

Dec 30, 2017 - Comments: 0

With the sun about to set on 2017, it’s time to reflect on the year in ONU athletics. 2017 featured three NCAA Tournament appearances, four individual national championships (and two national runner-up finishes), and four OAC team titles. 12 Ohio Northern athletes earned All-America honors in 2017.

On the day the world ended, Amy Bullimore sat in the locker room a little longer than usual to soak it all in. She cried and reflected as her coach tried to put the team’s season in perspective.

It had been one year and six days since the fifth-ranked Ohio Northern women’s basketball team had lost a game. They finished the 2016-17 season 30-1, losing to 10th-ranked Christopher Newport in an intense Elite Eight matchup at King Horn Sports Center last March.

Inexperience proves costly in ONU’s regional final loss to Wittenberg

Nov 14, 2017 - Comments: 0

The way volleyball works, there are very little breaks come tournament time. The opening weekend consists of three rounds, played on consecutive days, in which eight teams arrive to a regional destination but only one makes it out alive.

Making it out of the first weekend is a draining endeavor. Coaches must prepare for three different opponents in three days, with less than 24 hours in between each match and each opponent tougher than the last. Players must perform at their peak on short rest, staying mentally sharp during the biggest weekend of their volleyball careers.
