The field hockey team (4-1; 1-1 NESCAC) earned a 3-0 victory over Wellesley College (3-4) on Wednesday. The game was the third consecutive win and the second consecutive shutout for the Polar Bears. Bowdoin did not allow Wellesley a single shot on goal and took 16 of their own. Jane Shanahan ’24 converted on a scrum near the stroke line to score the first goal just over four minutes into the game, and with two minutes remaining in the first quarter, Sophia Rosati ’24 scored off a pass from Caroline Higgins ’24. Bowdoin’s final goal came when Faith Jennings ’23 found the back of the net at the end of the first half. The Polar Bears will take on Middlebury (5-0; 2-0 NESCAC) in their highly-anticipated home opener this Saturday at 11 a.m.
COME SAIL AWAY
The sailing team competed in five regattas last Saturday, including the Open and Women’s Singlehanded New England Championship, the Hatch Brown Trophy at MIT, the Regis Trophy at Harvard and the Barnett Trophy at Bowdoin. At their home regatta on Harpswell Sound, the Polar Bears finished first, fifth and 11th overall out of 16 competing teams. At MIT, the Polar Bears finished seventh overall out of 18 teams. At the New England Championship, hosted at Brown University, Christine Reimer ’24 finished third out of ten boats. This weekend, the sailing team will race in four more regattas before the selection process for nationals begins later this season.
MAGIC 8 BALL
The women’s soccer team (5-1-0; 1-1 NESCAC) dominated Maine Maritime Academy (2-3-1) on Tuesday in an 8-0 win. The Polar Bears did not allow the Mariners a single shot throughout the match. Samaya Bernardo ’24 scored Bowdoin’s first goal just under 12 minutes into the match. Bowdoin’s next goal did not come until the second half, when Rachael Peacock ’23 and Polar Bear of the Week Morgan Smiley ’24 scored within fifteen seconds of each other. Peacock, Smiley and Ella Olcese ’25 all finished the match with two tallies. Megan Lymburner ’24 also added a Polar Bear tally.
