Hayley Dowd was drafted 38th overall by the Boston Breakers in today’s NWSL draft. Dowd, a senior at BC, co-captained this year’s Eagles’ squad with fellow draftee, McKenzie Meehan.
Dowd was an important factor in the Eagles’ offense during all 4 seasons of her collegiate career. She started in 5 games as a freshman and was third on the team with 14 points, including 5 goals. Dowd avoided the sophomore slump, having her best season in her second year at BC. As a sophomore, Dowd led BC in scoring with 33 points, and led her team and the ACC with 15 goals. Dowd also had a pair of 5-game scoring streaks as a second year player.
Dowd was second on the team in scoring as a junior (following Meehan’s return from injury). As a senior, she led BC with 4 game winning goals. She finished her senior season with 7 goals and 3 assists.
Congrats to Dowd!
