Celebrating Conte Forum's Anniversary: In Their Own Words
Feb. 27, 2014
CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. -
To mark the 25th anniversary of Conte Forum, former student-athletes retell their favorite memories on the court and ice.
Aimee McGuire Coen (1994-98) served as co-captain her junior year and team captain her senior year. The former guard represented Boston College on the 1997 Big East/Nike All-Star Team that toured Denmark and Sweden. She averaged 6.4 points and 2.4 rebounds and started in all 27 games she played during her senior campaign.
“I remember being a member of the first women's basketball team ('94-'95) to play all of its home games on the main court in Conte Forum. Previous teams had played all or a portion of their games in Power Gym. It was really great to be a part of that.
“I also remember a year after graduating I returned to BC to watch the women's basketball team defeat highly ranked UConn before a sold out Conte Forum crowd ('98-'99 season). Even though I was sitting in the stands and no longer a member of the team, I was so proud to witness this tremendous win for Boston College and to know that I played a small part in building a strong foundation for the program.”
