SERVING UP THE NESCAC
Tonight, the volleyball team’s hunt for a conference title will begin. After recording a 19-4 overall record and securing the first seed in the 2021 NESCAC Volleyball Championship, the Polar Bears earned the privilege of hosting all rounds of the championship in the Morrell Gymnasium. Bowdoin will first face the eighth-seeded Hamilton College at 5:00 PM in a quarter-final matchup. In 2019, the last time the tournament was held, the Polar Bears finished as the runners-up, so they will look to move up one spot and become the NESCAC champions this fall. The last time Bowdoin and Hamilton matched up, on October 2, the Polar Bears were triumphant, defeating the Continentals by a score of 3-0. Before entering Morrell Gymnasium, spectators should review the Home Event Spectator Guidelines for indoor events.
BEARS, BATES, BATTLESTAR GALACTICA
The football team will take on Bates College at home tomorrow evening in its second-to-last game of the regular season and last home game. The game will take place take place at 5:30 PM and be played under the lights at Whittier Field at 5:30 PM, accounting for Bowdoin’s third nighttime football game since the construction of Whittier Field. The Polar Bears ’14 seniors will be honored directly prior to the game at 5:15. Both Bowdoin and Bates have 1-6 overall records, so tomorrow’s matchup should prove to be a close game. Additionally, Bowdoin will look to take advantage of the fact that the Bobcats’ starting quarterback will not be playing, as he was injured in Bates’ most recent matchup against Colby. Last weekend, Bowdoin lost a close game to Middlebury by a score of 35-42, so the Polar Bears will look to bounce back tomorrow.
