The BC sailing team won the NEISA Coed Championship hosted by Brown over the weekend, taking first place in the field of 18. BC’s first division team finished in fourth overall while their B division team took first, good enough to combine to edge out second place Roger Williams for the Championship.


The men’s and women’s tennis teams both came to an end at ACC play over the weekend, with both sides falling in their first round matchups.

The women’s team was defeated 4-2 by Pitt in their matchup, with Asiya Dair and Natasha Irani winning the only two singles matches for BC. The two also combined for one of BC’s two wins in doubles play, with Elene Tsokilauri Urbanti picking up the other. Dair, who is currently ranked #76 in the nation, picked up a win in her final match as an Eagle in straight sets.

The men’s team lost an abbreviated opening round match to Georgia Tech 4-0 to wrap up what has been a difficult season. With three singles matches still being played, Georgia Tech clinched a victory with their first point to eliminate BC from the conference tournament. BC finishes the season just 1-11 in conference play after back to back defeats at the hands of the Yellow Jackets.


In their final race of the season before ACC Championships, the BC rowing team took eighth place at the Eastern Sprints. Competing in a field of 13, the Eagles placed five boats in the water and took time to honor all of their graduating seniors, including racing in a new boat they named ‘Class of 2018’. Up next for BC is the ACC Championships in Clemson, S.C on May 13.
