The Eagles will play a familiar foe in Maryland in the national championship. Here’s a look at the last three meetings between the two teams. BC won the last game between the two, in the Final Four a season ago.
A dual-sport athlete her first three years at BC, graduate student Kenzie Kent is now solely focused on the sport of lacrosse, but her goal remains the same: to bring home a national title.
After being the first team to limit the Tar Heels to single digits, BC picked up another marquee win and proved that it has somehow become even better since the 2018 campaign.
The Eagles earned the No. 1 ranking because of a roster that features reigning Teewaaraton Award winner Sam Apuzzo and is certainly one of the most talented in the country and the top recruiting class in the country.
BC tied Maryland with the most IWLCA First-Team All-Americans in the country and broke its single-season program record with four players earning spots across the three nationally renowned teams.
For the second year in a row, the Eagles walked away from Championship Sunday as national runner-ups, but it’s what they accomplished before the final—recording a program-best 22 wins, claiming their first-ever ACC regular season championship, and returning to the title game—that will define the 2018 campaign.
BC was deadlocked with James Madison at halftime and even took a two-goal lead in the second half, but the Dukes came roaring back to hand the ACC regular season champions their second title game loss in as many years.
In a rematch of the 2017 National Championship game, the Eagles rewrote the script, becoming just the third team in the past six years to defeat Maryland, punching their ticket to their second-straight title game.
