Boston College Notes
BC currently owns a 9-8 overall record. Last week, the Eagles earned a decisive, 16-5 victory against Yale on April 28.
The Eagles are ranked No. 18 according to the IWLCA coaches' poll released on April 23.
Boston College holds a 9-2 record so far this season when the team leads at the half.
The Eagles have played aggressively this season, controlling 250 draws compared to the opposition's 184, and scooping up more ground balls, 239-225.
Six Eagles have tallied more than 20 goals this season, while six have more than 25 total points.
Grad student Kristin Igoe and freshman Covie Stanwick lead the offensive effort for BC. Igoe is first on the team with 46 goals and 57 points, while Stanwick has 55 points and a team-best 27 assists.
Igoe continues to make her mark in the BC history books. The Framingham, Mass., native scored two goals against Yale on April 28 to surpass Lauren Costello '10 and become BC all-time leading goal-scorer with 165. In addition to goals, she currently sits in the top five in every other BC career record category for a field player with 215 points (3rd), 136 ground balls (4th), 121 draw controls (5th) and 50 assists (4th).
Stanwick and freshman teammate Mikaela Rix have already earned recognition in the record books. With 27 assists and counting, Stanwick tops BC's all-time freshmen record list for that category. She is also tied for first for points in a freshman season (55), and needs just one more point to surpass teammate Brooke Blue, who set the last record in 2010. Rix is currently second behind Blue for most goals in a freshman season (43) and is just one goal shy of moving into the top spot.
Senior Brittany Wilton has 71 draw controls in 2012 and 207 career draws, topping the school's all-time record list for that category.
