Boston UniversityBoston, MA — Boston University has plans for the 2015 – 2016 season. After finishing as the runner-up in the last season’s Serues Cup (F Division) at Team Championships, the Terriers want to make the jump to the Chaffee Cup (E Division) this season. After graduating three players, Boston University will need to have their five incoming players fill the voids. According to co-captain Joel Lavoie, “It should be a great season with our good returning core of players combined with a few very good incoming freshman who can play at the top of the ladder.” Last season, Boston University had few wins — three — entering Team Championships. To improve this season, they will need to perform well against city rivals, Boston College and Northeastern. The middle third of their ladder had the best win percentage of the squad, 0.375, but to improve, the entire team will need win more individual matches. Look for Boston University to be fighting for a position in the Chaffee Cup this season.
