With the Olympics now fully underway in PyeongChang, let’s take a look back at the week that was for the Olympic Sports at Boston College

SWIMMING

The men’s and women’s swim teams capped of their regular seasons over the weekend, taking part in the Boston Winter Open hosted by BU. Facing the team from Northeastern along with Boston University, a number of Eagles had strong showings. With the swimmers selected for the conference team sitting out, 47 different Eagles swam to lifetime-best times in their final meet of the season.

Caroline Quindlen had the highest honors of the day, winning the 100 yard backstroke with a time of 57.03, good four fourth best all time in program history. Caroline Evans nearly matched Quindlen when she finished the 100 yard butterfly in 57.01, good for fifth best in program history. Colin O’Leary and Lucas Saliba were among other members from BC to finish first in their events.

Next up for BC is the ACC Championships. The women’s side will compete in Greensboro, NC starting on February 14 while the men’s competition will kick off a week later.

SKIING

The Eagles took part in the Dartmouth Winter Carnival in New Hampshire over the past weekend, competing with a number of teams from the New England Area. In both the slalom and giant slalom events, the women’s team came in 12th while the men finished in 8th.

Carter Robinson was the top men’s performer in both events, finishing eighth in a field of 60 in the giant slalom and 11th in a field of 61 skiers in the slalom. Parker Biele led the way on the women’s side, taking 23rd in the giant slalom in the field of 61.

The Eagles are back at it this weekend, taking part in the Williams Carnival in Hancok, MA.

TENNIS and FENCING

Tennis and fencing both enjoyed a week off, but will return to action in the coming days. The fencing team is competing in the Fencing Beanpot on Wednesday while the women’s (at Syracuse) and men’s (vs Southern New Hampshire) tennis teams will get back underway on Friday.
