Sophomore Covie Stanwick scored three of the Eagles six goals, but it wasn't enough as the third-seeded Boston College women's lacrosse team fell to the second-seeded North Carolina Tar Heels, 16-6 in the 2013 ACC Women's Lacrosse Championship semifinals.
Sophomore Mikaela Rix recorded a goal and an assist to reach 100 points in her career. Freshman Sarah Mannelly also posted a goal and an assist, and junior Moira Barry scored a goal.
The Eagles complete the regular season with a 12-7 overall record and await their National Tournament fate when the 26-team field for the 2013 NCAA Women's Lacrosse Championship is announced on Sunday, May 5. This year's championship marks the first year that the field will be comprised of 26 teams. The 26-team field includes 13 automatic qualifiers and 13 at-large bids out of the 97 NCAA Division I schools sponsoring the sport.
The top eight teams will host first and second round competition with seeds one through six receiving first-round byes. While BC won't be in line for one of the tournament's top seeds and falls short of the ACC's auto-bid, the program has put themselves in a great position to secure its second-ever trip to the National Tournament.
It wasn't all bad news for the Eagles on Friday, as sophomore Mikaela Rix was named one of 25 finalists for the Tewaaraton Award, collegiate lacrosse's highest honor. The finalist list will be culled down to five semifinalists for the award on May 9.
