BC legend Brian Gionta was unquestionably the best men's hockey player to spend four years on the Heights. His freshman year he scored 30 goals and only got better from there, amassing 123 career goals to set the BC record while having one of the best collegiate careers in NCAA history.
But after 15 years, that record has fallen. BC women's hockey's Alex Carpenter scored two goals in Tuesday's win over Harvard in the Beanpot semifinals, notching her 123rd and 124th career tallies and overtaking Gionta at the top of the BC scoring list.
Carpenter has already scored 34 goals in 28 games this season and has anywhere from 9 to 14 games to go. That would be good for another 11 to 17 more goals, enough to shatter the previous record.
Carpenter also sits at 253 career points, far and away the most in BC men's and women's hockey history, after passing Kelli Stack's 209 and David Emma's 239 earlier this season. That leaves Carpenter as the undisputed statistical monarch in the history of BC's hockey programs.
Congratulations to Alex, and hopefully a few team trophies are on the horizon in her senior season!
