To give you a sense of just how stacked ACC women's lacrosse is this year, the sixth-ranked Boston College lacrosse team will be the sixth seed in this week's ACC Lacrosse Championship. The host Eagles will take on third-seed North Carolina -- the nation's top-ranked team -- on Thursday, April 25 at 5 p.m. inside Alumni Stadium.
Earlier this season, Boston College (12-4, 3-4 ACC) dropped a heartbreaker to North Carolina (12-3, 5-2 ACC); losing by one goal in the regular-season matchup between the two teams.
Maryland (16-1, 6-1 ACC) is this year's top seed in the tournament. The Terps will face eighth-seed Virginia Tech (7-9, 0-7 ACC) in the first game of the tournament on Thursday at 11 a.m.
