Hockey and lacrosse two-sport star Kenzie Kent is going to have some competition in the headlines next year.
BC Women's Hockey has produced a second two-sport star. Graduating senior Andie Anastos, captain of the 2016-2017 women's hockey team and and scorer of the overtime game-winning goal in the Hockey East Championship game, will be moving over to the BC Women's Basketball program to finish off her collegiate eligibility, sources confirmed to BCI.
Anastos has used up her four years of hockey eligibility, so she's unable to return to the ice for Katie Crowley's Eagles. But athletes can play a second sport as long as they complete their full collegiate career within five years. Next season will be Andie's fifth, which she'll be spending with Erik Johnson's ACC basketball squad.
Andie was a two sport star in high school and had to decide which sport to continue with in college. She was particularly known for her physical strength, a trait which carried over to both sports.
While on the hockey team, Anastos was the embodiment of all the best qualities of a BC student athlete. After choosing to spend the last four years on the ice, we're fortunate to be getting an Anastos encore on the court!
