It was a tough weekend for the men’s and women’s tennis teams at Boston College, the two sides combining for an 0-3 weekend in ACC play.

The women’s side came up empty on their trip through Florida, falling 6-1 to Miami and 5-2 to Florida State to bring their ACC record to 3-8. Jackie Urbinati was the standout Eagle over the course of the weekend, winning both of her singles in straight sets. Urbinati was the only Eagle to win multiple matches against the Florida opponents. Next up for BC is a Friday contest with Notre Dame and a Sunday showdown with Georgia Tech. BC will be the host for both games as they attempt to right the ship as ACC play begins to wind down.

The men’s side dropped their only match of the weekend to North Carolina 6-1. Sean Mullins was the only Eagle to pick up a victory out of the #6 singles spot as BC’s losing streak reached a season high eight games. The Eagles will play host to Florida State on Thursday and Miami on Sunday as they look to end their losing streak with just four matches left in the regular season.


The Boston College rowing team turned in another very successful weekend, taking first in all five events against UConn and Holy Cross in the Irving-Christensen Cup on Sunday after sweeping three events against BU on Saturday.

On Sunday, the Eagles took victories in the varsity eight, second varsity eight, third varsity eight, varsity four, and second varsity four to turn in a perfect 5-0 record and take home the Irving-Christensen Cup in the annual competition between BC, UConn, and Holy Cross.

On Saturday, BC took first in three events against BU, winning the varsity eight, varsity four, and second varsity eight. The Eagles finished second to Northeastern in the second varsity four and third varsity eight. Up next for BC is this weekend’s Knecht Cup taking place in West Windsor, New Jersey.


Golf season is starting to wind down for Boston College, with the women’s team having already played their last game before the ACC Championship and the men’s side only having this week’s Clemson Invitational remaining on their regular season schedule. In their most recent appearances, the women took 14th place in a field of 15 at North Texas’ Bruzzy Challenge while the men finished sixth in a field of 14 in the Seahawk Invitational hosted by UNC Wilmington.
