Christine Craig '86

Christine M. Craig of the Class of 1986, a captain, record-holder, and award-winner in three sports at Bowdoin, you graduated from Bowdoin among the top three in the College’s history in ten separate statistical categories in softball, soccer, and basketball. Both an inspirational leader and a valued teammate, you were honored during your time on campus with the Annie L. E. Dane Award for your character, commitment, and team play.

One of Bowdoin softball program’s all-time greatest hitters, you achieved a batting average of .470 in 1986, which remains the third highest in program history, as well as a career batting average of .388, which remains fifth highest. A captain of the team, you also graduated holding first- or second-place records in career doubles, triples, slugging percentage, and RBIs. You struck out a remarkably miniscule four times in 188 college career at-bats and led a team that amassed thirty-six wins in four years, against only twenty-one losses.

Also a captain of the women’s basketball team, you led the team in scoring during the 1985-1986 season. You stepped in as goaltender for the women’s soccer team in 1985, and in that single season produced performances that put you in the top three all-time in wins and save percentage. Your career goals-against-average of 0.65 remains second in program history.
