Going For Two: Boston Marathon is unlike any other event

Going For Two: Boston Marathon is unlike any other event

  For those of you who do not know much about me, I was born and raised in a suburb just north of Boston and have been in love with my home city ever since. I am your stereotypical Bostonian — I love going to Fenway Park, Manhattan clam chowder is some sort of sick joke and Tom Brady is […]

Indirect Kick: College hockey realignment is too little, too late

Indirect Kick: College hockey realignment is too little, too late

College sports are slowly becoming more and more disorganized. Teams are changing conferences every year, while other schools are petitioning to join conferences that they have no business being a part of at all. For instance, Boise State University was looking to join the Big East in 2013. And yes, Boise is in Idaho. Why the Big East makes sense? […]

With Ryan Hilburn back, offense fires on all cylinders for men’s lacrosse

The Boston University men’s lacrosse team has reached double-digit scoring seven times this year, but this past weekend’s outburst might just be the best yet. Despite dropping a 13-12 decision to No. 11 Loyola University Maryland last Saturday, the Terriers’ (8-5, 3-4 Patriot League) offense played as well as it has played since it became a program three years ago, […]

BU sophomore turns Hopkinton roots into Marathon finish

Judy Walsh-McLean still remembers the day that her daughter, Rachel McLean, got cut from her high school field hockey team. McLean took it hard, and she joined the cross country team instead. The change was one of necessity and not desire, but it united her with a newfound passion — running. Come the moment when McLean crossed the 2016 Boston […]

Lemi Berhanu Hayle took home first place on the men’s side, besting defending champion Lelisa Desisa, […]

Fish and Chipps: Finding your voice

I was 17 and sitting in a movie theater in Gahanna, Ohio when I discovered my voice. It was a Saturday night, and I was watching a mediocre movie with a friend when I thought to myself, “I should start a blog.” I’m not sure why it hit me then, but it just did. I knew at that exact moment […]

After coming off its worst loss of the season, the Boston University men’s lacrosse team traveled to meet No. 11 Loyola University Maryland Saturday in search of the program’s first postseason berth and squandered its dominance by ultimately falling 13-12. Despite the loss, BU (8-5, 3-4 Patriot League) head coach Ryan Polley said he was impressed with the way his […]

Women’s lacrosse’s first-half woes squash comeback efforts vs. Navy

The Boston University women’s lacrosse team was at a crossroads at the halftime mark during Saturday’s match against the United States Naval Academy. The Terriers were dominated in the first frame, allowing the Midshipmen to score six unanswered goals, and BU eventually fell 12-6. Navy’s (9-5, 4-2 Patriot League) Morgan Young opened the scoring less than two minutes into the […]
