Laura Schultz Landry '96

One of the premiere players of her era in New England small college basketball, Laura Schultz was an unmatched offensive force while at Bowdoin and is still the only player in the program’s rich history to lead the team in scoring four consecutive years. The owner of three of the program’s top six single-season scoring averages, she averaged nearly two points per game more than any other player in school history and shattered the school’s career scoring record by more than 300 points. Twice she captained the Polar Bears to the ECAC Championship game, helping the team win its first-ever title in 1994-95 and setting the stage for a program that would soon rise to national prominence. As a senior in 1995-96, Schultz averaged 18.4 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 2.6 steals and was named First Team All-ECAC, All-NESCAC and the New England Small College Athletic Conference Player of the Year.
