Keeping tabs on the various non-football, non-hockey, non-hoops goings-on across Boston College athletics.
Congratulations to Erika Reineke. The junior won her third consecutive ICSA Women's Singlehanded National Sailing Championship this past weekend in Washington (nbd). Reineke held off Brown's Lindsey Baab and Coast Guard's Dana Rohde to win her third individual National Championship.
The women's volleyball team fell to No. 8 North Carolina (19-2, 10-1 ACC) in straight sets, 25-20, 25-18, 25-20, to fall to 9-13, 4-7 ACC on the year. But the program would rebound with a straight set victory over Clemson on Sunday. It was the program's first victory over Clemson since the 2006 season.
The Eagles now have five conference victories for the first time under coach Chris Campbell. BC begins a four-match road trip next Friday when they travel to Atlanta to face Georgia Tech. On Sunday, the Eagles then travel to Syracuse to take on the Orange with a few more #OrangeEagle points on the line. After next weekend, just four regular season matches remain--at Florida State (11/21), at Miami (11/23), Virginia (11/26) and Virginia Tech (11/28).
With the victory over Clemson, BC is up to 8th place in the 15-team conference standings, ahead of Clemson (5-8), Virginia Tech (4-8), Georgia Tech (4-9), N.C. State (3-9), Wake Forest (3-9), Notre Dame (3-10) and Syracuse (1-12).
The 9th-ranked Boston College field hockey team fell to 6th-ranked Syracuse, 5-2, in the first round of the ACC Championship. Kelcie Hromsin netted both goals for the Eagles. With the win, Syracuse earns enough #OrangeEagle points to offset BC's regular season victory over 'Cuse. BC dodged a bullet in the Orange Eagle, as Syracuse advanced all the way to the conference championship game before falling to Wake Forest.
The program will face Penn State in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on Saturday, November 15 at 2 p.m. The winner gets the winner of Boston University / Syracuse.
