O'Neil and King were the two standouts of the Bowdoin offense in 2004, scoring a combined 14 goals and 18 assists, accounting for more goals together than opponents combined against the Polar Bears this year (11). O'Neil, the 2003 NESCAC Player of the Year, ended her career with an eight-goal season in 2004. She is first all-time at the school with 125 career points and 31 assists. Her 47 career goals are second all-time. King, a sophomore, was the 2003 NESCAC Rookie of the Year. She had a solid second season that included a team-high 10 assists in addition to six goals. Both earned First-team All-NESCAC selections this season.
It is the second All-American selection for O'Neil, who was a first-team choice last season. It is the first All-American nod of King's career.
