Head Coach: MaryBeth Mathews
Captains: Elizabeth D'Angelo, Dana Peirce 

2017 Recap (7-3): The Polar Bears recorded another successful campaign, winning seven matches en route to a NIRA Tier II Championship match appearance. Bowdoin went a perfect 4-0 at home, including a regular-season ending Senior Day 50-12 win against Middlebury. Two of the Polar Bears' three losses came at the hands of the University of New England, who claimed the Tier II title against Bowdoin last November.

2018 Preview: Coach MaryBeth Mathews has reason for optimism heading into the fall 2018 campaign as she owns a strong collection of returning players, including co-captains Liz D'Angelo and Dana Peirce, who have played important roles throughout their Bowdoin careers. Additionally, returners to watch include Mackenzie Philbrick and Satya Kent. First-years showing early promise heading into the campaign are Sophia Karris and Sara Nelson.

2018 Schedule: Bowdoin kicks off its season Saturday with a tough road test at Roger Williams before returning to Pickard Field for three straight home games: Colby on September 22, West Chester on September 29 and UNE on October 6 (Homecoming Weekend). Bowdoin will play its Senior Day match on October 20 (Family Weekend) against Molloy.
