Athletic Teams Earn Berths

Athletic Teams Earn Berths

The Boston College women's cross-country and men's soccer teams will cap their fall seasons in NCAA championship competition.

Coach Randy Thomas' runners won the Northeast Regional Cross-Country Championship last Saturday in New York City to earn a berth in the NCAA Championship meet next Monday at Iowa State University. The BC cross-country team, which won the Big East Conference championship earlier this month, is ranked sixth in the nation.

The Eagles' soccer team defeated Seton Hall 2-1 last Sunday to win the Big East title and capture a place in the 32-team NCAA championship field. Coach Ed Kelley's team will meet Rhode Island at Kingston, RI, at 1 p.m. this Sunday in the first round of NCAA competition.
