The Eagles’ Champ 4+ boat placed fifth out of 14 crews in the finals on Sunday. The crew finished the race in 17:48.50, 9.4 seconds faster than BC’s Champ 4+ boat last year.

Women’s Golf 

BC women’s golf tied with two other teams for 10th place at the Marilynn Smith Sunflower Invitational in Lawrence, Kan. BC tied Washington State and UTSA with a score of 792 (324–311–157=792). The 10th-place finish marks the Eagles’ lowest finish at a tournament this season. Their second lowest was an eighth-place finish at the Yale Invitational in September.

Muzzy Donohue shot a 5-under-par 67 in the opening round. He finished the tournament in 33rd place with a score of 224. 

The tournament marked the Eagles’ final tournament of the fall season. BC will open its spring season on Feb. 6, 2023 at the Battle at Briar’s Creek.

BC women’s tennis’ Marice Aguiar continued her lights-out season at the ITA Super Regionals, placing second in the singles tournament.

Frayman also defeated BC’s Laura Lopez in the quarterfinals. Lopez won two matches in straight sets on Friday but couldn’t get past Frayman.
