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.
The Eagles beat up on a Rhode Island team that finished just 3-27 last season—four different players entered double figures, and BC recorded 13 triples over the course of the 24-point win.
After recording just seven wins last year, the Eagles kick off the 2018-19 regular season on Thursday night at Rhode Island—the official start of the Joanna Bernabei-McNamee era.
For the third time in four games, BC recorded three or less hits, spoiling Jack Nelson’s career day on the mound, digging itself into an even deeper hole with its fourth-straight loss.
The Eagles outshot the Rams, but they couldn’t notch the equalizer despite a flurry of close chances in the final minutes.
The Eagles took advantage of two games outside of the ACC, beating the Rams and the Bulldogs this week.
