The Boston College women’s soccer team has named two team captains for the 2017 season, as voted on by the team. Red-shirt senior Lauren Berman, a midfielder, and senior defender Allyson Swaby will co-captain the Eagles as the attempt to improve on last year’s 11-7-1 record. Berman and Swaby will take over for graduating co-captains Hayley Dowd and McKenzie Meehan.
Berman was a top offense player for the Eagles last season, leading the team with 8 assists and sitting in third place with 16 points overall. She was fourth on the team in scoring as a redshirt sophomore in 2015 with 10 points.
Swaby is a strong defense player who has seen significant time on the field from freshman year onwards. She was 4th on the team with 1,500 minutes played last season and played for 90+ minutes in all but 2 games in 2016.
The 2017 NCAA women’s soccer season will begin in mid-August.
