TENNIS

Jackie Urbinati and Kylie Wilcox competed in the ITA Women’s All-American Championships in California, coming up just one win short from reaching the main draw. Urbinati and Wilcox competed as a doubles team and picked up wins over opponents from Wake Forest and the University of California before losing to a team from Kansas to have their run come to an end.

Another Eagle, Yufei Long, competed on the singles side of the tournament. Long, a transfer student, lost in her BC debut to an opponent from Iowa before bouncing back and winning a match over Old Dominion.

The Eagles return to team action on October 11 when they take place in the ITA Regional Championships at Yale.

SWIMMING

The swimming season kicked off over the weekend when the Eagles took part in the New England Catholic Invitational. Both the men’s and women’s teams took first place overall, with a number of Eagles took first place in their events.

Both 400-yard medley teams came in first place and broke pool records in the event while doing so. Among the individual winners for BC were Zander Santana (men’s 500-yard freestyle), Taylor Cortens (men’s 200-yard individual medley), Ali Kea (women’s 50-yard freestyle) and Ryan Price (men’s 400-yard individual medley relay).

The Eagles are back in action on October 21 when they host Bryant.

GOLF

The women’s golf team competed in the Yale Intercollegiate, taking fifth in the field of 17. Ailin Lin lead the way for the Eagles, finishing in sixth place overall, one spot ahead of teammate Bibilani Liu.
