Arlington Catholic's Flynn commits to BU

Former Arlington Catholic girls' hockey standout Natalie Flynn committed to Boston University this weekend.

Flynn, who's playing in a postgraduate year at Cushing Academy this year, announced her commitment via her Twitter account. She will enroll at BU in the fall and join the Terriers for the 2013-14 season.

"Boston University has always been my top choice, so I'm glad with the decision I made," Flynn told ESPN Boston Sunday night.

The Cougars captain helped lift AC to a victory over a heavily favored St. Mary’s of Lynn squad in last year's MIAA Division 1 state championship game. Flynn tallied 19 goals and 15 assists for 34 points with the Cougars last season and was an ESPN Boston second-team All-State selection.
