IT’S THE (SEMI)FINAL COUNTDOWN
On Wednesday, men’s hockey forward Andy Stoneman ’23 was named a semifinalist for the 2023 Joe Concannon Award, which recognizes the best American-born collegiate hockey players at the DII and DIII level in New England. Stoneman is having his best season at Bowdoin and leads the Polar Bears with 20 points off of eight goals and 12 assists. The Concannon award is considered one of the most prestigious awards in small college hockey, and 33 semifinalists from New England schools were selected. The finalists and winner will be announced in March.
The women’s squash team (12–8; 5–5 NESCAC), currently ranked 16th in the nation, will compete in the Kurtz Division of the College Squash National Championships this weekend at the University of Pennsylvania. Bowdoin is coming off a 8–1 NESCAC Quarterfinals loss to Williams College last weekend. Skyler Spaulding ’24 earned Bowdoin’s lone win in the tournament. At nationals, the Polar Bears will compete in the B-Division for the second year in a row.
