Sam Apuzzo just graduated, but I think we can all acknowledge that she is one of the best athletes to ever compete for Boston College. For the second year in a row, she is BCI’s Female Player of the Year, this year beating out teammate Kenzie Kent, the only other player nominated, to earn the title.
Apuzzo led the Eagles and the NCAA with 94 goals this season, and was second on the team and in the NCAA (behind Kent) with 124 points. She led the team with 35 forced turnovers, and was second on the roster with 40 ground balls. She also won an astounding 191 draw controls this season. All of this plus she’s one of the best goal celebrators out there.
The past few years haven’t always been fun for BC fans, so knowing that BC lacrosse was always going to fun to watch and that Apuzzo was always going to be on the field dominating meant a lot. It is in large part thanks to her and her fellow seniors that BC has become the lacrosse powerhouse that it now is.
