HARTFORD, Conn. - The Bowdoin College women's squash team reached the semifinals, going 1-1 at the NESCAC Championship Tournament this weekend at Trinity College. The Polar Bears defeated Hamilton 9-0 in the quarterfinals before falling to Williams 9-0 to close out their tournament chances.
Bowdoin swept the ladder against the Continentals thanks to impressive showings from Elena Laird, Lauren Gesswein and Kate Gormley at the top three spots. In the loss to Williams, Gormley and Biz Gillespie were each able to steal a game against the second-seeded Ephs.
The Polar Bears stand at 7-9 this season and will return to action at home on February 4 against Colby.
