The BC field hockey team ended the regular season on a high note with a 5-0 win over Harvard on Senior Day. BC controlled the game from the beginning and outshot Harvard 29-2. With the win, the Eagles end the regular season with an 11-7 record and a four game win streak.

Heading into the game, the Eagles had a 10 game win streak over Harvard and looked to continue this on Senior Day, where they honored seniors Leah Settipane, Romee Stiekema, AshLeigh Sebia, Kelcie Hromisin and Jackie Kelleher. The game started with a quick goal just five minutes in for senior AshLeigh Sebia, who finishes the regular season with 5 goals. BC put considerable pressure on Harvard throughout the first half but were unable to break through for another goal. This changed early in the second half, when Boston College scored 3 goals in a 5 minute span with goals coming from Frederique Haverhals, Kelcie Hromisin, and Emily McCoy. The goals gave BC a commanding 4-0 lead and they would continue to control the game, with Harvard recording no shots on goal in the second half. Late in the game, senior Jackie Kelleher sent a pass to junior Brittany Sheenan who converted the chance into the Eagles 5th goal. After the 5th goal, all seniors besides the goalie had either a goal or an assist on Senior Day.

With the win, Boston College ends the regular season with an 11-7 record thanks to a 4 game win streak. Next up for the Eagles is the ACC tournament in Charlottesville, where they will have a tall task ahead of them as the #7 seed. Their first game is on Thursday at 1:30 against #2 seed Wake Forest. The last time BC faced Wake Forest, they quickly fell behind 3-0 in the first half and were unable to make a successful comeback, losing the game 3-2. If they win on Thursday, they will face the winner of the Louisville-North Carolina game on Friday.
