With the semester now in full swing at Boston College, a few of the Olympic Sports have finally gotten underway. With a few seasons in full swing and a few more just getting started, let’s take a look at some of what happened at BC this weekend in the year’s first official weekly update.
The women’s tennis team’s fall schedule officially got underway over the weekend, with the Eagles facing off with a variety of opponents in the Bulldog Invitational hosted by Yale. BC played teams from UMass (Friday), Harvard (Saturday), and Cornell (Sunday) to a mixed bag of results to open their season.
The doubles pairing of Elene Tsokilauri and Natasha Irani went a perfect 3-0 on the weekend wish Tsokilauri also picking up two singles wins along the way. Marion Conklin and Laura Lopez picked up their first wins as freshmen, with Conklin winning on Friday while Lopez won BC’s only singles victory over Harvard. The Eagles best showing was on Sunday, when they took five of the nine matches from Cornell.
Next up for three Eagles will be the ITA Women’s All-American Championships. Jackie Urbinati, Kylie Wilcox, and Yufei Long will all compete for BC after not competing in the Bulldog Invitational. Best of luck to all three as they begin their competitions in the next few days.
The men’s golf team continued their season with a fifth place finish at the MacDonald Cup in New Haven, Connecticut this past weekend, using strong performances by Matt Naumec and Christian Cavaliere to place well up the board in the field of 14 teams. Naumec finished fifth overall in the field of 77 golfers while Cavaliere finished four shots behind him, good for 11th overall. Next up for BC is the Health Plan Mountaineer Invitational in West Virginia, which will take place next Monday and Tuesday.
