Leonard Named Player of the Week

BRUNSWICK, Maine - Bowdoin sophomore goalkeeper Kate Leonard (Eliot, Maine) has been named the NESCAC Field Hockey Player of the Week for her efforts last week. Bowdoin is 3-2 this season.

Leonard stopped eight shots and then brushed aside three of Williams' five penalty strokes in a 2-1 Polar Bear victory Sunday. The sophomore, who took over the starting role this season, lowered her goals-against-average to 0.92 for the year. Her GAA ranks third among NESCAC goalies.

Bowdoin will return to action next weekend when they play host to NESCAC foes Amherst and Middlebury.
