BRUNSWICK, Maine - Bowdoin College field hockey captain Burgess LePage (Cumberland, Maine) has been named the New England Small College Athletic Conference Field Hockey Player of the Week for her efforts last weekend in a pair of Polar Bear wins.
The Polar Bears graduated several strong components, and with the tragic loss of Taryn King '07 in January, will be challenged as much mentally as physically. On the field, Bowdoin will return a boatload of talent in their attempt to defend their NESCAC Championship, including the majority of their defensive corps that allowed more than one goal just once in 2005.
