  For Boston, for Boston,
  We sing our proud refrain!

  For Boston, for Boston,
  'Tis widsom's earthly fane.

  For here all are one, and
  their hearts are true, and
  The towers on the Heights
  reach to Heaven's own blue.

  For Boston, For Boston,
  Till the echoes ring again!

Boston College Olympians

Marci Francis '98 is a member of the U.S. National Team for the sport of skeleton. Francis lives in Rutland, VT with her husband Eric Flaim, a four-time Olympic speed skater (and two-time silver medalist).

Snowboarder Tyler Jewell '99 has made the U.S. Olympic team. The Sudbury, MA native will make the trip to Turin, Italy, for next month’s Games. After graduating from BC, Jewell went out west to pursue his snowboarding dream; without a major corporate sponsorship, Jewell lived in his car, stayed in a tent, and worked whatever jobs he could to finance his training.

Women's soccer player Jenny Maurer (LSOE '07) recently attended training camp for the Under-21 Women's National Team - "a week that put the current Boston College star on a path that could very reasonably lead to her someday playing for her country in the Women's World Cup or the Olympics."

Carrie Howe '03 appears to be headed for a spot on the U.S. Olympic Sailing Team to compete in the 2008 Games. Howe has a very good shot at winning a gold medal in the Yngling class, reports the Detroit Free Press. She was on the sailing team and earned All-American honors at "sailing powerhouse" Boston College, and her sister, Julie, is currently sailing for BC.

As previously reported, Brian Gionta '01 will be skating with Team USA as he tries to bring home gold with the Men's Ice Hockey team.
