Hi Boston Hockey Blog readers,
Welcome to the new and improved Boston Hockey Blog. We hope to use this redesign as an opportunity to bring you an in-depth and interactive reading experience.
Additionally, we’d like to introduce ourselves, since we’re an entirely new beat this year. The three of us all have editorial experience at the FreeP in addition to diverse backgrounds in sports coverage.
Andrew Battifarano is a junior at BU working toward a dual degree in international relations and journalism. He was Sports Editor of the FreeP in Spring 2014, and has covered women’s hockey, softball, women’s basketball and men’s soccer for the paper. He has also interned for NESN.
Sarah Kirkpatrick is also a junior at BU, studying journalism and gender studies. She was Editor-in-Chief of the FreeP in Spring 2014 and was Sports Editor the previous semester. She has primarily covered women’s hockey, cross country and track in her time at the FreeP, and has also interned for the sports department of seattlepi.com.
Conor Ryan is a senior at BU studying journalism. He is currently Sports Editor at the FreeP, and has covered women’s hockey, women’s basketball, women’s lacrosse and women’s soccer. He’s also interned for WEEI.com, and has experience covering the Bruins and Red Sox.
We’re excited to get underway with our coverage this season. We’re always open to suggestions for improving our content and providing the best reading experience possible. Let us know what you’d like to read about BU hockey this year by shooting us a tweet (@BOShockeyblog), email ([email protected]) or comment.
Sarah, Andrew and Conor
