At the Maine State Meet in 1899, Cloudman ran the 100-yard dash in 9.8 seconds, tying the world record. Even though he competed without the benefit of spikes and a starting block, Cloudman’s Maine State record was never beat; it is the longest standing athletic record at Bowdoin, and will remain that way, given that track and field events transitioned to the metric system in the 1970s. Referred to by the local press as the “Bowdoin phenomenon,” Cloudman excelled in track and field and was also a member of the football, baseball, and fencing teams. Cloudman went on to serve in the army in both World War I and World War II.

McCabe is the only player in Bowdoin football history ever to be drafted by an NFL team. A four-year starter on the offensive line, McCabe anchored the team in three consecutive CBB championship wins. He is the only Polar Bear to earn All-American honors in football and was drafted in the 12th round of the 1978 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins. McCabe now teaches mathematics at the Taft School in Watertown, Connecticut, where he has also coached the track, football, and ice hockey teams. 

Shuman pioneered women’s athletics at Bowdoin, successfully competing on the men’s diving team in an era when there was no women’s swim program at the College. Shuman is the only woman to reach the finals of the men’s New England Diving Championship. She graduated as the program’s first New England champion and was voted an All-New England performer six times. After leaving Bowdoin, Shuman remained actively involved in Brunswick and coached diving at Brunswick High School. She has served the College as president of the Alumni Council and currently sits on the Board of Trustees. 

Richard “Dick” Whitmore was the first real star player of Bowdoin’s men’s basketball program. Under the tutelage of Head Coach Ray Bicknell, also a member of the Athletic Hall of Fame, Whitmore ushered the team to its first winning season. He also led the team in scoring and rebounding all three years he played and finished his career as the all-time leader in rebounds and points. Whitmore coached basketball for 40 years, and became the Head Coach at Colby in 1970 where he amassed a legendary 637 wins, the seventh most in D-III. Whitmore also served as Colby’s Director of Athletics from 1987 to 2002, and is president of the Maine Sports Hall of Fame.

Quinlan is one of the best hockey players ever to have donned a Bowdoin jersey, having led the College to its only back-to-back ECAC championships in 1975 and 1976. He graduated as the all time leader in goals scored (68) and total points (131). His record of 30 consecutive games with a point still stands as a Bowdoin record. Quinlan later attended training camp with the Philadelphia Flyers and played professionally in Belgium. A resident of Brunswick, Quinlan is a fixture at the current squad’s games in Watson Arena. 

Fasulo is Bowdoin’s only All-American in Men’s Basketball. Fasulo led the Polar Bears in scoring all four years of his career, a mark that has only been matched by Chris Jerome ’83, who is also a member of the Hall of Honor. His 24.7 points per game during his senior year still stands as second best in program history. Fasulo played professionally in Mexico before becoming an orthopedic surgeon.
