For the common good: Camil Blanchet ’18 was one of eleven athletes nominated for the 2018 Hockey Humanitarian Award, an award given annually to a college hockey player who contributes significantly to his team and to his community in general. He has played 79 games for Bowdoin as a forward, and also spearheaded projects such as the men’s hockey team’s fundraiser for Cerebral Palsy. The winners will be announced in February.
It’s awards season: Former men’s hockey coach Terry Meagher was the recipient of the 2018 American Hockey Coaches John MacInnes Award, which is presented to a coach that has shown passion for amateur and youth hockey. During his thirty-three years as head coach, Meagher had a record of 542-253-58, which was the sixth best record for total victories in DIII. He will be presented with the award at the AHCA national convention in Florida.
They’re snow fast: The nordic skiing team grabbed a best-ever fourth place finish at the St. Michael’s Carnival this weekend with 306 points total. Elliot Ketchel ’20 completed the 15k freestyle in eighth-place, the best-ever finish for a Bowdoin first year. The team was also helped by strong performances by Lily Johnson ’20 and Renae Anderson ’21.
