2013-14 Boston College Men’s Non-Revenue Sports: Skiing

Chase Ryan got the Boston College men off to a good start in 2014 with a 14th-place finish in Stowe, Vermont. (A funny tidbit here: part of the competition there was delayed because the host team, Vermont, got stuck in traffic on the interstate on their way there.)

A bunch of stuff happened in the middle, including some top-ten finishes in New Hampshire, and then, the Eagles put together a good close to 2014. Chase Ryan again finished 14th in his last runs of the year, just missing out on NCAA qualification. He was named the 2015 captain just last month.

2013-14 Boston College Men’s Non-Revenue Sports: Soccer

After what seemed like a lengthy stretch of good play from their teams, Eagles men’s soccer had a down year in 2013. Boston College went 7-9-2 (4-6-1) on the season.

The Eagles opened the season with a win at Boston University, which counts for something in any sport, but never seemed to get any traction as only once did they win consecutive games. Boston College was a first-round exit in the ACC Tournament in November against Maryland.

Zeiko Lewis led Boston College with 17 points (3 goals, 11 assists); Giuliano Frano led the Eagles with four goals. Goaltending duties were split between Keady Segel (seven games) and Alex Kapp (11 games), with the former posting a 1.06 GAA.

2013-14 Boston College Men’s Non-Revenue Sports: Swimming & Diving

The Eagles opened their season at home with a September 29 “Maroon vs. Gold Meet,” obviously an exhibition of some sort. In their first real meet, Boston College beat Bryant and then won the Northeast Catholic Invitational by a wide margin.

By December, the Eagles had come up with six wins in meets, which one can correctly assume is good. The ACC championships were not, however, as Boston College finished in tenth place.

2013-14 Boston College Men’s Non-Revenue Sports: Tennis

Boston College tennis has had some clunkers in recent years, and unfortunately for them, 2013-14 was no different. The Eagles finished in last place in the ACC this season, going 6-16 overall (0-11 ACC). Those victories were against teams one would expect Boston College to beat in most sports: Hartford, Southern New Hampshire, Bryant, San Diego Mesa College (which apparently exists), Sacred Heart, and North Carolina Central.

It was much worse in ACC than it looked: Boston College won two singles matches. Out of sixty. Mercy.

2013-14 Boston College Men’s Non-Revenue Sports: Track & Field

It has been a season of no particular note for the Eagles in this sport; most recently, Boston College placed seventh at the New England Outdoor Championships in western Massachusetts a few weeks ago. Individually, junior Richard Lucas won the 10,000m event. Within the past week, they also competed in the 2014 ECAC and IC4A Track and Field championships in New Jersey.

Any NCAA regionals in which individuals would be participating would be in late May and mid-June.
