Athlete of the Week: Allie Boyce ’25

Clara McCormick, Senior Writer

The Bison women’s lacrosse team is having a historic season, and this partially has to do with them having such a strong freshman class. Allie Boyce ’25 has contributed an immense amount to the team in the rookie season, including 29 goals and five assists. She earned her first two Patriot League Rookie of the Week honors on the weeks of March 8 and April 4. She was awarded these honors for scoring a hat trick on all three of her shots in their game against Duquesne and for scoring seven goals against Colgate. Boyce has officially beat the 43 year-old rookie scoring record when she earned her third Patriot League honor in the thrilling 18-12 win the Bison had over Army, who was ranked first in the league in preseason polls. In the game, Boyce scored all four of the fourth quarter goals and two assists. 

The rookie also commented on the victorious Army game and season. “Our season has been going really well! [Army] was named number one in the Patriot League, so beating them puts as in a great position as we finish regular season and head into playoffs. Everyone really stepped up during the game and it was exciting to see all our hard work pay off. Our offense worked incredibly well together and our defense shut down some of the top scorers in the Patriot League,” Boyce said.

The Falls Church, Va. native leads the whole team in goals as only a freshman. She is also ranked 10th in the league for goals per game (2.42) and fourth in shooting percentage (.547).

League play continues for Boyce and the Orange and Blue, as they take on American University on Saturday and Loyola on Wednesday. 

“We have a few more regular season games, but I am extremely confident in how we have been playing and the momentum we have. Personally, I have been doing great! I am very thankful for my teammates as they have made my transition to college lacrosse easier than I could have imagined. They are always looking out for me and set me up to play my best,” Boyce said.
