ERIE, Pa. — Forwards Holly Lorms, Jillian Kirchner and Lauren Cherewyk entered the Boston University campus in the fall of 2007 as three freshmen about to play in a young, two-year women’s hockey program. Nearly four years later, they left the ice for the last time in the BU scarlet and white Sunday as national runners-up, following their 4-1 loss to University of Wisconsin in the NCAA championship. All three left their marks on their final BU weekend, as did graduate student Catherine Ward, despite falling short of what would have been the first national championship in program history.
“We do walk out of here with a pretty nice trophy and while there’s a bittersweet moment to this, I can’t thank [the seniors] enough,” BU coach Brian Durocher said.
