Bourque plans to return to UMass for a fifth year in the fall to finish off her degree. She plans to become a physician’s assistant after college, but first, she will see if she can serve as a volunteer track coach at UMass next season.
“I’ll see if I can help out with the team and coach a little bit,” Bourque said. “Right now, I’m looking at two more meets in my college career, but maybe I’ll do some competing as an individual after college. Or I could change up sports completely and play some soccer to fill the time and stay in shape.”
Bourque is a former Cape Ann League champion thrower at Triton. She graduated in 2009 after leading the Vikings to a state championship.
