One of the fun things about a team winning a championship is getting to follow their victory tour and see where different celebrations pop up in the wake of the title. So far the champion Eagles were honored with a small ceremony on campus upon their return, as well as this trip to the State House.
It was also recently announced that the Eagles would be honored at Gillette Stadium during the upcoming Premier Lacrosse League pro games in Foxboro:
In the past, ceremonies for BC’s men’s hockey national champions have included opportunities like throwing out the first pitch at Fenway Park or appearing as a group at Bruins game. Time will tell where else BC’s newest champions will appear in Greater Boston, but for now let’s hope they’re enjoying the ride and basking in their well-deserved glory after Sunday’s huge win!
