07-11_mcnamara_1Aided by Lindsay McNamara, Milton Class of 2005, the Bowdoin College women’s field hockey team captured the school’s first-ever NCAA Championship on Saturday, November 17, in a game against Middlebury College.  Lindsay, a junior, set an NCAA record scoring nine goals in the tournament, including three of Bowdoin’s four goals in the final game.  This game finished off what was only the seventh perfect season in Division III history, the first since 2004.  Bowdoin’s Polar Bears allowed three goals in the championship match-up, the same amount they had allowed—combined—in regular season play.  In addition to setting a Tournament goal-scoring record, Lindsay tied a “Final Four” record with four goals over the course of the weekend and was named to the “All-Tournament” team.  Lindsay is also a member of Bowdoin’s ice hockey team.
