With the semester wining down around campus, many of the Olympic sports teams are either winding down with the last few games of their regular season or already into ACC Tournament play.


The men’s and women’s tennis teams both rounded out their regular season schedules with some ACC play. The women faced Wake Forest in their only match of the weekend, ending their season on a positive note with a close 4-3 win. Asiya Dair won a three set comeback victory to close out her senior day in style while Kylie Wilcox, Jackie Urbinati, and Elene Tsokilauri were also winners on the day for BC.

The men’s side had a tougher weekend, falling 7-0 to Wake Forest on Friday and 4-0 to Georgia Tech in their season finale on Sunday. It was a difficult weekend to finish of a difficult season for the Eagles, who went just 1-11 in conference play. Both teams will now turn their attention to postseason play, however, with the ACC Championships taking place from April 25-29, with the men set for a quick rematch with Georgia Tech and the women taking on the lower seeded Pitt.


ACC Championship play has already come and gone for the golf teams, with both competing in North Carolina over the weekend. The men’s side tied their best overall finish in the tournament by placing 10th in a field of 12. Their combined -8 for the weekend was 21 shots off of Georgia Tech’s winning score and was paced by Matt Naumec, who finished a team best 21st in the field of 60.

The women’s team also finished their season over the weekend, finishing in 12th place. Ailin Li was the best Eagle at the tournament, finishing at a +9, good for 30th overall in the field of 60.


The Eagles competed in their final home race of the season over the weekend, placing five boats in the water for four events on the Charles River. BC had two boats on the podium for the second varsity four race, with their A boat winning the race and their B boat taking third. The Eagles finished in second in the varsity four race, second in the second varsity eight, and fourth in the varsity eight. BC has one race left before the ACC Championships on May 13.


The Eagles sailing team continued another impressive season when they won the NEISA Women’s Championship/Reed Trophy on Sunday. The Eagles defeated teams from Yale, US Coast Guard, Brown, and Dartmouth among others.
