Women’s Tennis

The Boston Colege women’s tennis team participated in the first round of the ACC Tournament yesterday in Cary, N.C.

The Eagles, who entered the tournament at 13-9 on the season, started the tournament off on a dominant note with a 4-0 win over Pitt, the Eagles’ first ever win in the ACC Tournament.
Three Eagles won their singles matches, while the others three went unfinished. Jessica Wacnik defeated her opponent by a score of 6-2, 6-3.

The Eagles fared just as well on the doubles side. The top two teams handled their opponents, while the third pair of Heini Salonen and Emily Safron tallied BC’s only loss on the day, as they were edged by the Panthers, 8-6.

Men’s Golf 

The Boston College men’s golf team came in third place at the Notre Dame Oak Hill Invitational to start the week.

John Jackopsic’s play led the Eagles, as the junior came in sixth on the individual leaderboard. BC finished behind Nebraska and tournament winner Notre Dame. The Eagles edged Georgetown for a spot in the top three, by just two strokes.

Andy Mai’s best round came on the second day of the competition, as he shot a 71, which was good enough for a ninth place finish. Mai’s teammate, Matt Murphy, came in 13th at +13 over the course of the three-round tournament. Patrick Oleksak finished 17th on the leaderboard, shooting 18 over par. Nick Pandelena’s +23 was enough for a 23rd place finish.
