Cox, Woodward Honored As All-NESCAC Selections


BRUNSWICK, Maine - The Bowdoin College women's soccer team earned two All-NESCAC selections on Wednesday as the conference announced their All-Conference team. The Polar Bears finished the year 12-2-2, and fell in penalty kicks to Williams in the semifinals of the NESCAC Tournament.

Sophomore defender Kendall Cox (Guilford, Conn.) was the lone first-team selection for Bowdoin after leading a stellar defense that allowed only 14 goals in 15 games this season. In addition, Cox scored one of the biggest goals of the year for Bowdoin, ending Williams' 16-game regular season winning streak with a 30-yard free kick goal in a 1-0 win.

Sophomore Christina Woodward (Lexington, Mass.) was all over the field for Bowdoin this season, and captured second-team All-NESCAC honors. Woodward scored three goals and had two assists for the Polar Bears, and was clutch in the midfield and on defense.

Connecticut College's Christa Toeresz took Player of the Year Honors, while Elise Henson of Williams was Rookie of the Year. Martha Whiting of NESCAC Champion Tufts was tabbed as Coach of the Year.
