Jill Bermingham Isenhart '86

For most athletes, dominating one sport is a great accomplishment. Dominating two sports is extraordinarily rare. Dominating three is spectacular. With that in mind, there is perhaps no more versatile athlete in the history of Bowdoin athletics than Jill Bermingham Isenhart, who starred for Bowdoin ice hockey, soccer, and lacrosse teams.

Jill Bermingham was a force from day one at Bowdoin, capturing second-team All-New England honors as a freshman on the women¹s soccer team that won the NIAC Championship. Her career records speak for themselves: in soccer, she still holds school records for most single-season goals (18), most single-season points (42) and most points in a single game (8). In lacrosse, she holds the records for single season goals (66), assists (21), and points (87). She also holds the record for career goals (145) and career points (183), even though assists records were not kept her first year. In hockey, she graduated holding the records for single-season goals (30), most goals in a game (5) and most career hat tricks (6).

A native of South Londonderry, Vermont, Isenhart graduated Bowdoin with a double major in government and environmental studies. Her father, Eldredge (Class of 1950), and brother, Eldredge Jr. (Class of 1975) are Bowdoin alumni. She resides in Boulder, Colorado with her husband, Chip, and their two children.
