Three Polar Bears Named All-American


BRUNSWICK, Maine - Three Bowdoin College women's lacrosse players have garnered All-American recognition in selections announced Wednesday. Defender Grace Moore (Groton, Mass.) was named as a Second-Team choice while goaltender Stephanie Collins-Finn (Menands, N.Y.) and midfielder Taylor White (Wellesley, Mass.) netted Third-Team nods.

Moore, who was a First-Team All-NESCAC and First-Team All-Region choice, was an outstanding defender for Bowdoin again as a junior in 2007. Starting all 15 games this season, she ranked among the team leaders with 30 groundballs, 22 draw controls and 18 caused turnovers. In addition, she scored six goals and one assist this year.

White captured First-Team All-NESCAC and All-Region as well, and closed out an outstanding career with a 27-goal campaign for the Polar Bears this spring. She also led the team in groundballs (34), draw controls (27) and caused turnovers (36). She finishes her career as the eighth-leading scorer in school history with 142 points, including her 112 goals which sit sixth all-time.

Collins-Finn adds to her collection of postseason honors after earning Second-Team All-NESCAC and First-Team All-Region. A starter in all 15 contests, Collins-Finn played 804 minutes and posted an 8.51 goals-against-average (third in the NESCAC) and a .551 save percentage (second in NESCAC). She stood fourth in the NESCAC with 9.33 saves per game.

Bowdoin finished the 2007 season with a record of 9-6.
