Track & Field: The BSU Men’s and Women’s Track & Field teams had spectacular seasons this year. Their first meet of this season was the Art Kadish City Challenge. The boys would finish in 5th place while the Women’s team placed in 6th. 

Both teams would go on to win the MASCAC Conference Championship. On the Men’s side, this is the fourth straight championship, while for the Women, this was the first time since the 2015-16 indoor season. Head coach Connor Foley had this to say about the two teams. “Both teams worked incredibly hard all season and overcame a tremendous amount of adversity on and off the track. It was nice to see their perseverance get rewarded in such a dominating fashion.”

Men’s Basketball: The BSU Men’s Basketball team was a young team for the 2021-22 campaign as there were only three returning players from the 2019-20 season. 

The Bears season would start with an 8-game losing streak which would soon end, as they grabbed their first win against Wheaton College on December 4th.

The Bears would finish in 2nd place for the MASCAC Conference, where they would defeat MCLA and Westfield State in the MASCAC Tournament, only to lose in the MASCAC Conference Championship against Framingham State.  

The Bears would end the season with a 20-8 overall record.
