Highlight Reel for September 1

September 1, 2023


In a Division III preseason poll released by the National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA), the Bowdoin field hockey team was ranked 14th in the nation. Bowdoin is one of eight NESCAC teams included in the top-25 ranking. The Polar Bears ended their 2022 season with an 11-5 (6-4 NESCAC) record and extended their streak of double-figure wins beginning in 1991, the longest in Division III field hockey history. The team kicks off its 2023 season on September 5 at Ryan Field against the University of New England.


The women’s soccer team will play its season opener on Tuesday at Pickard Field. The team ended last year’s season with a final record of 10-4-3 (5-4-1 NESCAC), and advanced to the NCAA Division III Championships with its first bid since 2015 before losing its first game. Four players were named All-NESCAC, including midfielder Greta Farkas ’24, defender Alex Arndt ’23, goaltender Jess Klein ’25 and forward Samaya Bernardo ’24. Farkas was also named Second Team All-American for her campaign as a midfielder.


Mike Connolly, the head coach of Bowdoin’s baseball team, will be inducted into the Maine Baseball Hall of Fame on October 15. Connolly has been coaching the team since 1999, leading the Polar Bears to 431 victories and the program’s only two bids to the NCAA Division III Tournament in 2006 and 2012. He is the longest-tenured coach in Bowdoin’s 160 years of baseball history and has been named the NESCAC Coach of the Year twice.
