One of the longest-running women's tournaments in all of college sports, the Women's Beanpot has been a Boston fixture since the first edition of the competition in 1979. The battle for city-wide bragging rights was claimed by Boston College in 2016 for the Eagles' sixth Women's Beanpot crown. Northeastern has won the most titles (16) of the four participating schools, including a run of eight consecutive championships between 1984-1991.
