Former Boston College Women’s Hockey forward Savannah Norcross announced last night on social media that she will be leaving the Heights to join the Minnesota Golden Gophers women’s hockey program.
Norcross, a junior this past year, was a particularly important part of the Boston College roster the last two seasons. She earned BCI’s Female Most Improved Player award this summer after putting up steady improvement over her three years at BC. The Lynn, MA native went from a 3-0—0 line her freshman year, 11-6—17 in 36 games as a sophomore, and then tied for the team lead in points with a 12-9—21 line in her 20 game COVID-shortened junior season.
This is the last transfer expected from the women’s hockey team this summer. Norcross joins defender Hadley Hartmetz who unexpectedly transferred out of the program very late in the summer as well, and is heading to Ohio State. The Eagles hope to replace their production with an incoming transfer of their own, Robert Morris’ Michaela Boyle, who will join the BC team for the second semester. BC also has one of their best freshman classes in quite some time coming to the Heights as well, so finding offense should not be a problem.
Best of luck to Savannah as she continues her hockey career in Minneapolis.
