BRUNSWICK, Maine - Thanks to her performance in the NESCAC Semifinal and Championship games this weekend, Bowdoin senior co-captain Lora Trenkle (Surry, Maine) was named NESCAC and Co-Maine Women's Basketball Coaches Player of the Week on Monday. The Polar Bears won their fourth consecutive NESCAC Championship on Sunday in overtime against Bates to clinch a berth in the NCAA Tournament. Bowdoin will face the winner of Emmanuel/Salve Regina on Saturday with a gametime to-be-announced.
Trenkle scored a game-high 21 points in Saturday's semifinal win against Williams before posting 11 points, nine rebounds and five assists in the final against Bates. Trenkle buried a pair of clinching free-throws with less than five seconds remaining in overtime to clinch the contest.
