Spring Game Cancelled

From BC Media Relations

In light of the tragic events that have transpired this week, especially in the past 24 hours, Boston College has canceled Saturday's Jay McGillis Memorial Spring Football Game and all related events as well as all home athletics events scheduled for Saturday.

"After consulting with campus, city and law enforcement officials, including the Boston College Police Department, we have decided to cancel all home athletics events scheduled for Saturday, including the spring football game," Director of Athletics Brad Bates said. "Our first priority is ensuring the safety of our student-athletes, coaches and spectators. Our local law enforcement community has done a phenomenal job this past week, and we do not want our events to serve as a distraction.

"Furthermore, now is a time for reflection to honor those who have been tragically killed and injured this past week and to allow our community to heal. The entire Boston College family stands with those who have been affected by this week's events. Together we will persevere and emerge stronger and more unified than ever."
