BRUNSWICK, Maine - Three members of Bowdoin squash teams earned All-New England Small College Athletic Conference honors in selections announced today by the conference.

Senior Sarah Nelson (Concord, Mass.) was named as a First Team All-NESCAC selection for the women while senior Ben Bristol (Rocky Hill, N.J.) and sophomore Ian Squiers (Dayton, Ohio) took Second Team All-Conference honors for the men's team.

Nelson moves up to the First Team after being selected for the Second Team the last two years. She is Bowdoin's first First Team All-NESCAC selection since Lauren Gesswein '11 in the 2011 season. Playing at the top spot this season for Bowdoin, Nelson collected seven wins this season entering play at the CSA Championships this weekend. 

Bristol enjoyed a phenomenal senior campaign for the Bowdoin men, winning a team-best 13 matches this winter including a 3-0 performance at nationals last weekend for the Polar Bears. Squiers jumped to playing at the number one position for the Polar Bears during the second half of the season and managed to finish with eight victories on the campaign.
