Ashley Obrest resigned as the Eagles head coach after eight seasons heading the program, Martin Jarmond announced in a press release Tuesday. The BC graduate led the team to five winning seasons during her tenure.
The Eagles have won 30 or more games in each of the last three seasons, but two-thirds of their 2019 lineup will likely be freshman, setting the stage for an interesting campaign.
Even though the Eagles were shut out in the frontend of Saturday’s doubleheader, they bounced back to defeat the Yellow Jackets in Game Two, claiming the final series of the regular season.
BC faltered in the late innings the first two games, then were run-ruled in the weekend finale against Louisville, suffering a disappointing series sweep to a Cardinals team that had dropped five of seven.
Jessica Dreswick claimed the all-time program wins record with her 56th career victory, while Annie Murphy’s 40th career double was also tops in BC history during a 3-1 win over Harvard.
Emme Martinez hit a three-run home run and drove in a career-best five runs, lifting the Eagles to a series win over rival Notre Dame for the first time since 1998 in a pivotal ACC matchup.
