Acacia Walker-Weinstein has done wonders to get Boston College into the national spotlight in the women’s lacrosse world, and now she has been rewarded for it.
Walker-Weinstein has signed a contract extension, ensuring that she will remain the bench boss for the Eagles for the near future.
“My plan is to keep Acacia here at Boston College for a long time and see her continue leading our championship-level program she and her staff have built here,” said BC athletic director Martin Jarmond in a statement. “I am fortunate to work alongside Acacia and I felt it was important to commit more resources to continue our competitive excellence. The future is bright for our women’s lacrosse program with Acacia at the helm.”
Under Walker-Weinstein’s helm BC became the fifth program in women’s lacrosse history to reach three straight national championship games. BC has also gone 44-4 in two seasons, with the only losses in that stretch coming in ACC and national championship games.
“I am so excited to continue leading this special program here at Boston College,” said Walker-Weinstein in the statement. “The support we have received from Martin and the athletic department has been tremendous as we continue to build a program that competes every year for trophies. BC provides an opportunity to enhance character, is a great place to pursue big dreams and play lacrosse at the most elite level in the nation. Combined with a world-class education, BC is a destination for greatness for all future lacrosse student-athletes and I could not be more proud to continue to lead this special program.”
