I just heard from Laura Georges, BC women's soccer '07, and one of the best athletes in BC history. She's currently playing for Olympique Lyonnais, a club team in France. Her club won the French championship last year and is in the semi-finals of the UEFA Women's Cup, the most prestigious European women's club competition.
They will be playing a two-legged semifinal against Umea of Sweden, with the first leg coming Sunday & the 2nd being played on April 6. The final round will be on May 17 & 24.
She also said she was interested in coming back to the United States to play in the new women's pro league, which is starting up this summer.
There's definitely a place for her if she wants it, as she is one of the best women's players in the world. Best of luck to her.
I'm getting increasingly excited for this weekend's NCAA hockey tournament. I filled out my bracket. My frozen four: Michigan, Michigan St., Boston College, N. Dakota. I have Michigan winning it all, but nothing would surprise me. All it takes is a hot goalie and BC has as good a chance as anyone.
There's a real love fest between BC and Minnesota fans on USCHO. These two programs and fan bases have a lot of respect for one another.
Barring any unforeseen circumstances, I will be attending the last few innings of today's BC baseball home opener between the Eagles and the University of Hartford. I have class from 3-4:15 but I should be able to hit up the end.
My intramural hockey team has a quarterfinal playoff game tonight at 7 PM at Conte Forum. Let's get it on!
