The Boston College softball team had a rough 2013 season, but with senior leadership returning to the pitching staff and the retention of its three top hitters, the Eagles are gearing up to put the past behind them.
Down two runs with nobody out and runners on first and second in the top of the ninth, the Boston College Eagles looked poised for a late comeback Sunday afternoon. After a successful sacrifice bunt by sophomore Joe Cronin moved the runners over to second and third, the Eagles were only one base knock away from tying the rubber match of a three-game series against the Stetson University Hatters. That clutch hit never came for BC, however.
The Heights is the independent student newspaper of Boston College, founded in 1919. Nearing 100 years of continuous publication and printed twice weekly on Mondays and Thursdays during the academic year, The Heights serves as an unparalleled record of progress on campus. The Heights is published and copyrighted by The Heights, Inc. and is entirely staffed and produced by BC undergraduates.
The Heights has been financially independent from Boston College since 1971. Donating today will help make sure the paper remains in the hands of its student staff.
