Shaver Named All-NESCAC


BRUNSWICK, Maine - Bowdoin College women's tennis player Julia Shaver (Long Lake, Minn.) has been selected as a Second-Team All-NESCAC honoree thanks to her performance in the Conference Tournament last weekend. Shaver is a senior co-captain for Bowdoin, who will play in an NCAA Regional this weekend at Middlebury College.

Shaver advanced to the semifinals of the "B" singles bracket, winning a pair of matches. In the semifinals, she fell to Jennifer Lejb of Tufts (6-0, 6-2) after winning her second round and quarterfinal matches. Shaver, who also received All-NESCAC recognition as a sophomore, is 11-8 this season.

The NESCAC all-conference team was determined from action at the tournament. Each player who reached the final in any of the three singles flights or won any of the three doubles flights earned first-team All-NESCAC honors. Each player who advanced to the semifinal round in singles or reached the final in doubles received second-team all-conference recognition.
