Follow Up:The successful tailgate allowed alumni to meet this year's squad ahead of the Notre Dame game. The team is very grateful to the esteemed graduates who have made this program what it is today. All of the support is appreciated! The team hopes to see many of you at the upcoming tournaments.
After 5 grueling periods, the alumni pulled out a 15-14 win over current players. Goalie's Tyler Dubiel (sophomore, undergrads) and Trevor Prince (senior, alumni) each had a number of key saves while facing off against one another. It was great experience for the squad ahead of their first games this weekend at Middlebury!
While voting on team awards earlier this year, the team also elected their captains for the next season. The squad will be led by Corey Mano (right), Trevor Prince (left) and John Treinen (JT) (center). While the team has missed Corey and JT as they have spent the semester in Australia and Austria, respectively, Trevor has led the team through the spring season. All three individuals have already proven themselves as leaders on the team and are extremely accomplished, each receiving recognition on the 2016 All-Conference teams.
2016-2017 Team Awards
Along with the tremendous amount of success BC had as a team, numerous members of the squad received individual recognition. Two of the highlights include the entire starting lineup being named to either 1st of 2nd team All-Conference and Sean Fisher making 2nd Team CWPA All-America. On top of the recognition received from the CWPA and other coaches, the team voted on their own annual awards.

2016 in Review
The Eagles were able to build on their 2015 success, claiming the New England Division Championship and finsishing 9th place at Nationals! The team's path started all the way back in August, the week before classes started, with two aday practices supplemented by intense drylands led by Clifford/Gannon Inspirational Player award winner Brendan Koch. As the season progressed, BC went on to go 4-0 in the BU tournament and 3-1 in the Yale tournament. The only regular season loss came at the hands of Dartmouth College, who the boys ended up beating in the conference championship.
To complete the season, Boston College went 3-1 at the CWPA Club National Championships. In their first game, they were met by emerging varsity program McKendree University. McKendree proved to be the teams toughest competition of the weekend as BC fell 12-10 in overtime. Although playing well at times, BC was inconsistent in their execution against a well conditioned McKendree team and failed to get the win. This loss was followed by three dominating wins against Duke, Notre Dame and Grand Valley State. Each travelling player was able to contribute quality playing time.
We would like to express a big thanks to all the family, friends and alumni that donated in order to fund the team's trip to Nationals and Notre Dame.
