|Hometown/School:||Philadelphia, Pa./Shipley School|
Emma Powers joins the Polar Bears for her third season this spring. Emma's speed on the base path and her ability to hit away from the right side or slap from the left side will keep opponents guessing. Defensively, Emma is an outfielder, although she did pitch during her freshman year. Emma plans to double major in Psychology and Spanish. Last fall, Emma studied in Barcelona, Spain at the University of Barcelona. Emma took all of her classes in Spanish, and being immersed in Spanish culture allowed her to become a fluent Spanish speaker. Around campus, Emma writes for Bowdoin's newspaper, The Orient and works for the Bowdoin Cable Network. In her free time, Emma enjoys hanging out with friends, going to the movies, shopping, and eating - she is also a member of the softball team's Varsity Eating Squad. A graduate of Shipley School in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, Emma is the daughter of Bob and Lauren Powers, and she has a younger sister, Olivia, 13. Emma also has two dogs: Melony, a black lab and Norbeart, a golden retriever.
