Bowdoin Announces 2013 Women's Rugby Match Schedule

BRUNSWICK, Maine - The Bowdoin College women's rugby team has released its 2013 match schedule.

Coming off an undefeated regular season and the inaugural New England Small College Rugby Conference Championship last fall, the Polar Bears will be looking to defend their title with a seven-game slate that includes a quartet of home matches.

After opening at the Beantown Preseason Scrimmage on September 7-8, Bowdoin will open NESCRC play at Colby on September 14. The Polar Bears will play home conference matches against Middlebury (September 21), Bates (October 5) and Amherst (October 12). In addition to their match at Colby, Bowdoin will also travel to Tufts (September 28) and Williams (October 19).

Bowdoin will cap its regular season on October 26 with a non-conference match against Harvard in a clash that will feature two of the nation's varsity teams at Pickard Field. The Polar Bears will battle for the NESCRC Championship the following weekend.

The Polar Bears will be co-captained by Maura Allen and Amanda Montenegro this fall.
