Trenkle Honored as Polar Bears Stand Pat

BRUNSWICK, Maine - The Bowdoin College women's basketball team continued to roll and stand at number two in the latest national poll released on Monday. In addition, senior captain Lora Trenkle was named the Player of the Week by the MWBCA (Maine Women's Basketball Coaches Association) for her efforts in three victories last week.

Trenkle led the unbeaten Polar Bears (13-0) to three more wins over conference foes Colby, Trinity and Amherst. The senior guard from Surry, Maine averaged 16.0 points, 5.7 rebounds and 6.7 assists in just 24 minutes per game. The preseason All-American came within three rebounds of becoming just the third player in school history to record a double-double as she had 18 points, 10 assists and 7 rebounds in the Trinity contest.

The University of Rochester continued to hold onto the number-one ranking this week, garnering 19 first-place votes. Bowdoin was a solid number two, earning four first-place ballots.
