It was a big weekend (and past week) for Boston College sports, and a somber one at the same time. The two hockey programs combined for four trophies over the last seven days.
No surprise here: #1 Boston College men’s hockey continues obliterating Hockey East, and they clinched the regular-season title on Saturday night in Vermont. It was their third trophy as such in four seasons.
Not much of a surprise here, either, but new ground was broken for the #7 women’s hockey team as they won their first-ever Hockey East regular season title on Sunday in Maine. That’s two trophies in two days for Boston College hockey, which they also did earlier in the week after sweeping the Beanpot tournaments.
Boston College Athletics: Long-Time Boston College Assistant AD Dick Kelly [sic] Passes Away
Last night, prior to the Notre Dame/Boston College basketball game, the Eagles paid tribute to Dick Kelley with a touching video presentation.
More good news for the flailing basketball program: the #1 Syracuse Orange are likely getting a key player back for Wednesday’s game.
BC Tennis: No. 41 Virginia Tech downs Boston College
Boston College men’s tennis fell to the Virginia Tech Hokies (who knew they even gave rankings in the 40s?) down in Dedham. The Eagles are now 2-5 after being swept in all of their matches.
At least one of our teams beat Notre Dame this weekend!
