The field hockey team (5–2; 2–2 NESCAC) took home its second NESCAC win of the season after defeating Williams College (4–2; 1–1 NESCAC) 2–1 in Williamstown, Mass. last Sunday. Maddie Mrva ’27 put the Polar Bears in an early lead in the fourth minute with an assist by Georgie Coetzer ’23. Bowdoin held its lead through the first and second quarters. Late in the third quarter, Almira Arnold ’23 doubled the team’s lead on a penalty corner. Williams netted its only goal in the final quarter with a 15–10 advantage in shots but was ultimately unable to pull ahead. The Polar Bears return to play against Husson University (3–2) at 6 p.m. tomorrow on Whittier Field.
Last weekend, the sailing team competed in four regattas—the Mrs. Hurst Bowl hosted by Bowdoin, the Hoyt Trophy hosted by Brown University, the Hood Trophy hosted by Tufts University and the Eagle Invite hosted by Boston College. The Polar Bears finished ninth at the Mrs. Hurst Bowl with Kyra Phelan ’26 and Rebecca Schill ’27 competing in the A Division. At the Hoyt Trophy, the team took seventh with Tom Hall ’25 and Kai Olson ’27 sailing in the A Division. Sam Bonauto ’25, Hazel Johnson ’27, Lauren Russler ’26 and Timmy Gee ’25 returned home from the Hood Trophy with a fourth-place finish. The team will compete this weekend in the Moody Trophy at the University of Rhode Island and the Smith Trophy at MIT.
