BRUNSWICK, Maine - Bowdoin's Kristen Cameron (Charlottetown, P.E.I.), Meghan Gillis (Whycocomagh, N.S.) and Katie Forney (Gettysburg, Pa.) were honored as NESCAC Women's Ice Hockey All-Conference selections last week. The Polar Bears recently finished their season with a record of 17-9-1.

Cameron earned her second appearance on the NESCAC First-Team after being named last season as the Conference's Rookie of the Year. Bowdoin's top defender, she also scored 12 goals and 20 assists this season with a team-high three game-winning goals and four powerplay tallies. She also led the team with 44 penalty minutes this year. After two seasons, the sophomore from Prince Edward Island is climbing up the Bowdoin scoring list, with 69 career points in just 53 games.

Meghan Gillis, the 2004 NESCAC Rookie of the Year, she earned a Second-Team selection following a stellar junior campaign. Gillis was tied for the team lead with 16 goals this year and finished second on the squad with 35 points. She also became just the eighth player in Bowdoin women's hockey history to surpass 100 career points this year. She has 61 goals and 59 assists in just three seasons, ranking fourth all-time with 120 career points.

Katie Forney had a breakout junior campaign and earned her first postseason honor, a Second-Team All-NESCAC choice. Bowdoin's top scoring threat this year, she led the team in scoring with 16 goals and a team-high 21 assists. She was lethal on the powerplay, scoring four times this year, and is also making a dent in the school's record books. She has 74 career points in just 77 career games.
