TENNIS

It was a tale of two completely different weekends for the men’s and women’s tennis teams, with the men continuing to have a tough go of it in conference play while the women put together a perfect weekend.

The women’s side went a perfect 3-0 over the weekend, picking up a big 4-3 ACC win over Louisville on Friday before easily knocking off Bryant (5-0) and UConn (6-1) on Sunday. The Eagles knocked of #48 Louisville on the back of strong singles performances by Asiya Dair, Kylie Wilcox, Jackie Urbinati, and Elele Tsokilauri to pick up their second ACC win of the season. The two wins on Sunday gave the team four straight and closed out their non conference play for the year. They will travel to face Virginia Tech on Friday and Pittsburgh on Sunday.

The men had a much tougher go of it for the Eagles, as they were swept 7-0 by Virginia Tech on Friday and then again by Duke on Sunday. It was a tough weekend for BC, who has now dropped five consecutive matches, four against ACC opponents. They’ll look to right the ship on Thursday when they face Clemson in South Carolina. They will also travel to Raleigh to take on NC State on Sunday.

FENCING

Ella Morgan wrapped up her career at BC by competing in the NCAA Championships in Pennsylvania. Morgan competed in the epee event as the lone BC representative and came in 24th in her field of 24, winning seven of her 23 bouts. Congratulations to Morgan on an end to a fantastic BC career!

ROWING

The spring schedule for BC’s rowing team got underway over the weekend, with the Eagles racing four boats in two races on Saturday and another competition on Sunday.

On Saturday, the Eagles took on St. Joe’s in the morning and Temple in the afternoon, racing both teams in the varsity eight, second varsity eight, third varsity eight, and varsity four. BC won in six of their eight races, taking all four against St. Joseph while splitting against Temple with wins in the third varsity eight and varsity four.

On Sunday, competing in the Cooper Sprints, BC took on seven opponenets from across the country. Their best finish came from the third varsity eight boat, which took third place on the day. The second varsity eight came in fifth while the first boat claimed sixth on the day. Next up for the Eagles is the MIT-BC Cup on Saturday.
