Attacker Charlotte North, who starred for Duke in 2019, as well as goaltender Rachel Hall and attacker Bridget Simmons, will join BC lacrosse for the 2020 season, Acacia Walker-Weinstein announced Tuesday.
After a third consecutive national championship appearance, Eagles head coach Acacia Walker-Weinstein has signed a new contract, Martin Jarmond announced in a statement Wednesday afternoon.
The Eagles class of 2019 should ultimately be remembered for the winning culture they helped build, not failing to capture a national championship in a sport without much parity.
For the third straight season, the Eagles came up just short of a coveted national championship. Here are eight observations from the heartbreaking defeat to No. 1 Maryland.
Megan Taylor and the fourth-ranked Maryland defense held the Eagles to just 10 goals, crushing BC’s national title dreams for the second time in three years.
The National Championship between Maryland and BC will feature four of the five Tewaaraton Award finalists, including seniors Sam Apuzzo and Dempsey Arsenault.
The Eagles started the second half on a 5-1 run, pulling away to beat Princeton, 17-11, in the NCAA quarterfinals and advancing to the Final Four for the third straight year. Sam Apuzzo led the way with four goals.
BC achieved yet another milestone as Sam Apuzzo and Dempsey Arsenault were named finalists for the Tewaaraton Award, the first time the program has had multiple finalists in a single year.
Following their defeat to North Carolina in the ACC Championship, the Eagles clinched the No. 2 overall seed, which likely sets up a rematch with the No. 3 Tar Heels in the Final Four.
