Clare Naughton once again had a match-high in kills with 17, powering BC to a comfortable three-set victory over the Hokies on Friday night.
A strong season continued for Jewel Strawberry and BC as it escaped Miami with a five-set win, snapping an 18-game losing streak dating back to 2009 against the Hurricanes in the process.
Thanks to a game-high 19 kills from Clare Naughton, the Eagles beat Wake Forest, 3-1, to move to 4-0 in conference play for the first time since joining the ACC in 2005.
Behind a strong effort from Amaka Chukwujekwu, the Eagles easily handled Duke and are 3-0 in ACC play under second-year head coach Jason Kennedy for the first time in program history.
At the Rhode Island Challenge, the Eagles started the weekend with wins over Bryant and Rhode Island, before dropping a five-set thriller to Albany to finish the weekend.
BC bookended a win over UC Irvine with losses to Pac-12 foes in Oregon State and No. 11 Oregon, but the weekend provided a glimpse at the team’s ability to play at a higher level than years past.
BC was just three points away from winning its third-straight game to end its season on a high note, but coughed up a two-point lead and went on to fall to the Tigers in five sets.
