Tennis teams advance to NCAAs

Track and tennis are the last Bowdoin spring sports standing as NCAA competition awaits.


Bowdoin’s men’s and women’s outdoor track teams took part in the New England DIII championships last weekend in Springfield, Mass. Luke Fairbanks (shot put) won an individual title on the men’s side, while Kelsey Borner (discus) and Ali Chase (800) were tops for the women. Bowdoin goes to the Open New Englands this weekend and still has the ECAC and NCAA championships upcoming.


Bowdoin’s men’s tennis team downed Trinity 5-3 in the NESCAC first round before losing 5-1 to Middlebury in the semifinals last weekend. Regardless, the Polar Bears (11-6 on the year) received an at-large bid to the NCAAs and will travel to Williamstown, Mass., where they’ll meet Vassar Saturday. The women lost 5-0 to Tufts in the NESCAC first round, but also earned an at-large bid. Bowdoin (8-8) will go to Amherst, Mass., this weekend to meet U. Mass-Dartmouth.


Bowdoin baseball closed its season with a 6-5 home win over Brandeis and a 15-7, 6-5 doubleheader sweep of host Colby last weekend to finish 23-15. The Polar Bears earned the third-most victories in the history of the program.

Men’s lacrosse

The Bowdoin men’s lacrosse team saw its season come to an end Saturday with a 10-8 loss to Tufts in the NESCAC semifinals in Middlebury, Vt. Cullen Winkler had four goals in defeat.
