It’s been a long year for Boston College Athletics. There have been some exciting moments. There have been a lot of disappointing ones. (A lot.) Through the occasional wins and the many losses, The Heights has been along for the ride. With that, we introduce our first annual Athlete of the Year Awards, recognizing the flashes of greatness we’ve seen in 2015-16 at BC. These athletes and coaches aren’t necessarily the most successful at their respective sports, but their character away from the game, among teammates and in the BC community, shows they truly represent what it means to be an Eagle. Thanks for following along with us this year. We’re already getting set for the next one.
