Taking part is fun, but winning really rocks. Sure, BU’s 500 student-athletes love what they do, but when you’re competing at the highest level of college athletics in 23 NCAA Division I varsity sports, results count.
And 2009 was another triumphant year for the Terriers—a fifth national championship in men’s ice hockey (plus conference regular-season and tournament titles), seven conference championships in other sports, and six teams and 10 individual athletes powering through to NCAA postseason competition (including an undefeated regular season in conference play for women’s basketball).
It’s no fluke. The Terriers, new members of the Patriot League and Hockey East Association, won BU’s fourth consecutive America East Commissioner’s Cup in 2009 before changing conferences. BU has held that honor, bestowed on the conference’s best all-around athletic department, seven times in the past eight years.
We call this success Points of Terrier Pride. The Dog Pound, our loyal and loud fans, call it another rocking year. And the volume will be up again next year. And beyond. Check out what the future holds for Terrier Athletics in the department’s strategic plan.
