Women's Ice Hockey Scores NESCAC Honors

BRUNSWICK, Maine - Bowdoin College senior women's ice hockey player Meghan Gillis (Whycocomagh, N.S.) has been named as a First-Team All-NESCAC selection in postseason honors released on Friday. Gillis, a senior tri-captain, was joined by junior Kristen Cameron (Charlottetown, P.E.I.), who claimed Second-Team All-Conference honors.

The Polar Bears (17-6-2) are seeded second in the NESCAC Tournament and will play Amherst in the semifinals of the Conference Championship on Saturday at Middlebury College. Gametime is scheduled for 4:00 p.m. Fans can watch the game live on the web HERE.

After earning Second Team honors last winter, Gillis earned First Team accolades for the second time in three years (2005). The 2004 NESCAC Rookie of the Year currently sits atop the NESCAC scoring list with 15 goals and 19 assists for 34 points through 24 games, as her 15 tallies put her in a five-way tie for first place among league players. She also has been extremely effective on the power-play this season for the Polar Bears, scoring a career-high seven goals with the extra attacker to lead the NESCAC. Currently, Gillis ranks third at Bowdoin in all-time scoring with 76-78-154 through 104 games.

Kristen Cameron also netted a postseason honor, earning a Second-Team nod this season. A two-time First-team All-NESCAC choice, Cameron is one of the top scoring defenders in the league. Among defenseman in Division III, she ranks 10th with 12 goals and 10 assists this season. With 91 career points in just 74 games, the junior is close to becoming the first defender in Bowdoin women's ice hockey history to surpass 100 career points.
