Every summer, BC Interruption staff inducts a group of former BC athletes/coaches/administrators into the BC Interruption Hall of Fame. You can find the previous inductees here.
This year’s class is comprised of 6 former athletes and coaches. Our first inductee of the year is BC women’s soccer midfielder Kristie Mewis.
Mewis played at Boston College from 2009-2012, where she was a integral part of the two winningest seasons in program history (2009 and 2010). As a freshman, Mewis started in 23 games and recorded 5 goals and 6 assists. As a sophomore, Mewis recorded points in 11 straight games, a program record that still holds. She continued to be a starter throughout her time at BC and as a senior recorded 21 points, the second most in program history for a single season.
Mewis is second in program history in career points (116), third in program history with 89 career goals, and second in program history with 38 career assists). She had 3 multi-goal games as an Eagle, including a hat trick against Harvard
