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.
Notre Dame hit three home runs in the opening 40 minutes of play, and Alexis Holloway shut down the Eagles’ offense, as the Irish eliminated BC from the ACC Tournament for the third time in the past five years.
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.
Lexi DiEmmanuele stole three bases and the Eagles poured on five runs in the first two innings, which held up for a midweek win over Massachusetts Lowell on Tuesday night.
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.
After a disappointing outing on Friday, Allyson Frei responded by allowing just two earned runs over six innings, while Lexi DiEmmanuele did her part in the lineup en route to a series-equalizing win over the Irish.
Jessica Dreswick snapped the Eagles’ two-game losing streak, striking out nine Minutewomen, en route to her 55th career victory, a mark that ties Alexis Beckman for the most wins in program history.
