Fernando also went 2-0 on the week, defeating Alison Taff of Dartmouth 3-6, 6-3, 7-5 and Lili Holodnak of Princeton 7-5, 4-6,
6-3. Their wins propelled the Eagles to a 5-2 finish on the fall season.
In a meet against UMass-Amherst Friday, October 25, Allyson Horgan (Haverhill, MA) won two individual events -- the 100 and 200 butterfly -- and was a member of the victorious 200 medley relay squad. Her 58.62 time in the 100 butterfly was the fastest for a BC swimmer in that event since the 1995-96 season. Horgan's three victories led the Eagles to an opening day 204-96 win over the Minutemen, at the Flynn Recreation Complex. BC captured first-place in 13 of 16 events.
