Softball Opens NESCAC Slate with Win at Bates

LEWISTON, Maine – The Bowdoin softball team came from behind to mount a five run rally and defeat Bates 5-1 in their NESCAC opener on Friday afternoon.

Bowdoin improves to 12-5 on the season after picking up its first conference win as the Bobcats drop to 1-8 and 0-1 in NESCAC play.

Bates scored the first run in the bottom of the second when senior Kira Shaikh led off with a stand up triple. Tori Fitzgerald put a squeeze bunt down the third base line to bring home Shaikh.

The Polar Bears responded on offense in the top of the fifth on back to back doubles from Marisa O'Toole and Cielle Collins to even the score up at one. O'Toole moved up on a Victoria Rusch ground out to short, and scored the go-ahead and eventual winning run on a wild pitch.

Bowdoin added to the lead in the top of the sixth, as Adriane Krul led off with a solo home run down the left field line to put the Polar Bears up by two. Katie Gately and O'Toole each added RBI singles, scoring Emily Griffin and Lauren Nguyen, who pinch ran for Gately.

Julia Geaumont allowed only two hits while striking out seven and walking none to pick up her sixth win of the season. Offensively, Bowdoin was led by O'Toole who was 2-3 with a pair of RBI and a run scored.

The two teams are scheduled to return to action on Saturday April 4, for a NESCAC double-header. Game one is set to begin at noon, with game two to follow.

Softball Takes Two in Tuesday Series Against Bates

LEWISTON, Maine – The Bowdoin softball team secured a pair of NESCAC wins on Tuesday afternoon against Bates with 4-1 and 5-2 finishes behind complete game performances by Julia Geaumont and Emily Griffin in the circle.

The Bobcats (1-12, 0-7 NESCAC) collected 15 hits to Bowdoin's (14-5, 3-0 NESCAC) 12 in the two games, but lacked the clutch hit, leaving 17 players on base in both games.

Game One Recap - Bowdoin 4, Bates 1

Brenna Callahan threw the complete game for Bates, allowing four hits and four runs in six innings while striking out one. Geaumont picked up the win for Bowdoin, striking out six while scattering seven hits over seven innings and allowing one earned run. Geaumont helped her own cause in the bottom of the first, hitting a two-out home run over the left field fence to give Bowdoin the early 1-0 lead.

The Bobcats threatened in the second, with Kira Shaikh beating out a bunt to the pitcher to start things off. Paige Ahlholm hit a one out single to right, putting runners on first and second with one out. But Geaumont retired the next two batters to end the threat.

Bowdoin added to the lead in the bottom of the fifth, scoring a pair of runs on an RBI double from Adriane Krul that scored Claire McCarthy and Lauren O'Shea. The Bobcats got on the board in the sixth off the bat of Kelsey Freedman, who doubled to left.

Schiller had the only multi-hit game for Bates in game one, going 2-4 with a run scored. Geaumont had the only multi-hit game for Bowdoin, with a 2-3 performance and an RBI.

Game Two Recap - Bowdoin 5, Bates 2

Freedman tossed the complete game for Bates, allowing five runs on eight hits while striking out a pair. Griffin threw all seven innings for Bowdoin, allowing two runs on eight hits while striking out nine.

The Polar Bears took the early lead in the nightcap when Adriane Krul doubled to center, stole third, and came home when Griffin grounded out to second, giving Bowdoin the 1-0 lead after one.

The Bobcats threatened to even the score in the top of the third, as Maddie Inlow and Jenney Abbott started the frame with back to back singles. Griffin retired the next two batters before ending the inning with a strikeout.

Freedman held Bowdoin scoreless in the second and third, but Marisa O'Toole added to the Polar Bear's lead when she knocked a two run homer to right center field to give Bowdoin the 3-0 advantage after four innings. Bowdoin added a pair of runs in the bottom of five on a pinch-hit RBI double from Alana Luzzio and an RBI single from Geaumont.

Bates mounted a substantial threat in the top of the sixth with Kira Shaikh starting the frame with a single to right field. Paige Ahlholm drew a walk and Inlow laced a single up the middle to score Shaikh. Abbott connected on her second single of the day to load the bases, but Griffin induced two fly outs to leave the bases loaded. Bates added another run in the seventh, but could not complete a comeback.

The Polar Bears will return to action tomorrow as they face the University of Southern Maine in a doubleheader at St. Joseph's College in Standish beginning at 3:30.

Geaumont and O'Toole Propel Polar Bears Over Southern Maine in Split Decision

STANDISH, Maine- The Bowdoin softball team split a nonconference Wednesday doubleheader against the University of Southern Maine bouncing back from a 9-1 opening loss with a 12-4 victory in game two on the campus of Saint Joseph's College.

The Huskies (14-8) disrupted a three game win streak for the Polar Bears (15-6) who had yet to drop a game in state this season. Bowdoin travels to Tufts for a three game series beginning on Friday at 4:00 p.m. as the Polar Bears resume conference play.

Game One Recap – USM 9, Bowdoin 1

Both sides were retired in order to open the game, with Bowdoin collecting the first hit of the day in the top of the second. Katie Gately led off with a single but her hit was erased as the Huskies turned a double play on the following batter. Nicole Nelson doubled to left center, but the Huskies forced the third out to strand the runner on second. Southern Maine answered with a pair of base runners in the bottom half of the inning, but Bowdoin's Alana Luzzio was able to recover and strike out two to help end the inning.

Southern Maine was the first team to break the stalemate in the bottom of the fourth with a six run inning that began with a leadoff walk. Kirsten Duross, Amber Kelly, and Samantha Crosman strung together consecutive singles with the Polar Bears making the play at home keep Southern Maine off the board following Crossman's shot. The Huskies were able to score on the following batter as Danni Humphrey walked, scoring one, and Ally Pillar followed with a two-run double to right center. Humphrey later scored on a Bowdoin error and Courtney Davis tallied two more RBI driving in runs with a single to center.

Pillar picked up her second double of the game in the bottom of the fifth, allowing Humphry to score and pushing the Huskies lead to 7-0. Bowdoin finally broke through in the following frame after putting runners on the corners. Julia Geaumont reached on a double and quickly advanced to third off a Gately single up the middle, coming around to score with a Cielle Collins sacrifice fly to right. That was all the offense Bowdoin was able to muster as Southern Maine put two more on the board to close out the sixth.

Luzzio fanned eight batters while allowing five earned runs in Wednesday's outing. Erika Millett allowed just five hits with one walk in six complete innings of work for the Huskies.

Game Two Recap – Bowdoin 12, USM 4

The Bowdoin bats came alive in the second game, scoring nine runs in the opening inning, to force a five-inning game two. Adriane Krul got the game started with a leadoff single and came around to score on the next batter as Marisa O'Toole put a bunt down the third baseline that was mishandled by defense. Collins and Nelson each drove in runs, Collins with an RBI single and Nelson with a two-run double, with Nelson coming around to score off another Huskies miscue. Bowdoin pushed another run across the plate before Geaumont would wrap up the offensive output with an RBi single.

In the bottom of the first, Geaumont escaped a bases loaded situation by striking out Pillar to end the inning. The Huskies did break through in the second off an RBI single up the middle by Taylor Lux that scored Humphry who had led off with a double. Bowdoin put its final runs on the board in the top of the fifth off a three-run blast by O'Toole. The Huskies responded with three of their own in the bottom half off a two-run double from Duross and RBI groundout by Kelly.

Geaumont pitched all five innings while allowing eight hits and three earned runs. The junior walked just two batters while collecting four strikeouts. Kelly pitched a complete game for Southern Maine allowing 11 hits with five K's.

Polar Bears Drop Softball Doubleheader to Tufts

MEDFORD, Mass. – The Bowdoin softball team battled to a tight 1-0 loss in their Saturday opener to Tufts before falling 10-0 in the nightcap to the defending national champions.

The Jumbos remain perfect on the season and improve to 18-0 (2-0 NESCAC). The Polar Bears drop to 15-8 (3-2 NESCAC) after opening the conference slate with a sweep of Bates last weekend.

Game One Recap - Tufts 1, Bowdoin 0

Twenty of the 21 outs Tufts recorded in the first game were Allyson Fournier strike outs. After hitting the first batter she faced, Adriane Krul, she struck out the next nine. Marisa O'Toole led off the fourth with a sharp single through the left side and then stole second. Fournier would strand her and strike out 11 of the final 12 Bowdoin batters.

Griffin was solid in the circle for Bowdoin, giving up just one run in the fourth. Cassie Ruscz led off with double to left-center and scored on a pair of ground outs. Griffin allowed six hits and two walks. Ruscz was the only player in the game with multiple hits, finishing 2 for 3.

Game Two Recap – Tufts 10, Bowdoin 0

Game two remained knotted at 0-0 through three before Tufts scored twice in the fourth, twice in the fifth and six times in the sixth. Ruscz hit a two-run hone run in the fourth, a two-run single in the fifth and had an RBI base hit in the sixth.

Erica County threw a six-inning shutout for Tufts, allowing six hits and a walk. She twice got into trouble with two outs. In the third inning with the score 0-0, Bowdoin singles by O'Toole and Julia Geaumont helped load the bases. County got a fly ball to end the inning. With a single by Krul and a Tufts error, the Polar Bears then had runners on second and third down 4-0 in the fifth. County again kept Bowdoin off the board with a groundout.

The Polar Bears travel to Trinity where they will play three games on Sunday.

Softball Sweeps Bantams in NESCAC Tripleheader

Hartford, Conn. –Julia Geaumont and Emily Griffin did not allow an earned run in 21 combined innings in the circle to lead the visiting Bowdoin College Polar Bears to three wins over the Trinity College Bantams in a NESCAC East Division softball tripleheader this afternoon.

Trinity falls to 5-15 overall and 2-4 in the NESCAC East, while Bowdoin improves to 18-8 overall and 6-2 in the division. The games, originally scheduled as a two-day series in late March were moved to today due to weather restrictions.

Game One Recap – Bowdoin 2, Trinity 0

Griffin tossed a six-hit shutout with two K's and two walks in the morning game, outdueling Trinity's Hannah King who allowed seven hits and two runs with five strikeouts and did not walk a batter.

Bowdoin scored its runs on an RBI double by Cielle Collins in the third inning and a Geaumont solo homer in the sixth inning. Trinity had a runner on second or third base in all but two innings but failed to push a run across. Collins and Claire McCarthy both doubled twice and Griffin singled twice and stole a base for the Polar Bears.

Game Two Recap - Bowdoin 11, Trinity 0

Geaumont threw a five-hit shutout and the Polar Bears capitalize on six Bantam errors to capture a win in the middle game of Sunday's series. The pitcher allowed just one walk in seven complete innings of work, while notching one K.

The Polar Bears got on the board early with an RBI double from Geaumont and Katie Gately single that drove in a pair to begin the game. Nicole Nelson pushed Geaumont across the plate in the third with a single and Collins launched a two-run shot in the following inning. A Trinity error on an Adriane Krul ball in the fifth allowed Nelson to push Bowdoin's lead to six.

Bowdoin's offense exploded in the top of the seventh with five runs. Collins tallied her second RBI of the game, eventually coming around to score herself on a Geaumont double. Gately's single that followed allowed two more runners to cross home before another Trinity error opened the door for another Bowdoin run.

Game Three Recap – Bowdoin 2, Trinity 1

Trinity's Rachael Smith gave a valiant effort in the Bantams' circle in game three. Smith worked a complete game around nine hits and six walks to allow just one earned run, but Geaumont yielded only three hits and allowed one unearned run in the fifth inning to go 2-0 for the day before Griffin finished up to collect a save with two innings of scoreless relief.

In the final game, Bowdoin scored in the second inning on a passed ball and again in the fourth inning on a solo home run by Gately, but the Trinity infield turned a double play in each of the first four frames to keep the home team within striking distance. Meaghan Race came through with a two-out, bases loaded single to drive in the lone Bantam run of the day in the bottom of the fifth frame, and Smith pitched out of a jam in the top of the sixth by getting the last two batters to fly out with runners on second and third base after two Bantam errors.

In the bottom of the sixth, singles by Otero, Erica Correa, and Miranda Riendeau-Card went for naught when two Bantam runners were thrown out at third base in the inning. Geaumont and Marisa O'Toole were 3-for-5 in game two for Bowdoin, while Nicole Nelson went 4-for-4 in game three. Otero had two hits in games two and three to finish 6-for-9 in the tripleheader for Trinity.

Bowdoin is scheduled to host the University of New England in a midweek doubleheader, beginning at 3:30 p.m., on Wednesday.

Bowdoin Splits Wednesday Twinbill With University of New England

BRUNSWICK, Maine - The Bowdoin and UNE softball teams split a doubleheader on Wednesday afternoon at Pickard Field. Bowdoin won game one 9-1 (5 inn.) before falling to UNE in game two, 3-2.

The contests marked the home-opener for the Polar Bears, who now stand at 19-9 this season. The Nor'easters move to 14-12 this spring.

Game One Recap
The Polar Bears scored five times in the bottom of the fifth inning to earn an eight-run rule decision over the Nor'easters, 9-1. Bowdoin jumped ahead on a Jordan Gowdy sacrifice fly in the first inning and plated three runs in the second on another sacrifice fly from Ali Miller, an RBI ground out from Adriane Krul and a run-scoring double from Cielle Collins. UNE got one back in the fourth when Abby Lambert brought home Amanda Vallante with an RBI single. Bowdoin pitcher Julia Geaumont worked out of further trouble, however, and permitted just two hits while striking out three batters in five innings.

Bowdoin put the game away in the fifth thanks to a two-run home run to deep center from Katie Gately, a double from Lauren O'Shea that scored Gowdy and a two-run single by Emma Stevens that pushed the differential to eight runs. Katelyn Austin took the loss for UNE, allowing six earned runs and nine hits while walking four over 4.2 frames.

Game Two Recap
The UNE bats came to life in the first inning of game two, scoring three runs that proved to be the difference in the game. Sydney Helmbrecht came home on a double from Paige Moore-Haskell to give the visitors a 1-0 lead after just two batters. The Nor'easters mounted a two-run, two-out rally later in the inning thanks to a double-steal that brought home Moore-Haskell and a double to right field by Meghan Bolano that scored Kelly Murphy.

That proved to be all the offense Abby Lambert would need in the circle as the UNE hurler scattered nine hits over seven innings, permitting two earned runs. Bowdoin clawed back into the contest thanks to Victoria Rusch, who crushed her first career homer - a solo shot to left in the third - and doubled home Emily Griffin in the sixth. Gowdy followed with a single, but UNE's Lauren Doneski made a game-saving throw from right field to cut down Rusch at the plate, preserving the one-run lead for the Nor'easters. Bowdoin made a bid to tie the game in the seventh, placing runners on first and third. Nicole Nelson laced a grounder to third that deflected off UNE's third baseman Murphy to the glove of shortstop Bolano, who recovered and tossed a strike to first, beating Nelson by a half-step to earn the win for the visitors. Alana Luzzio took the loss for Bowdoin, permitting one earned run over the first four innings. Emily Griffin allowed just two hits in shutout relief over the final three frames.

Bowdoin will return to action at home on Friday against Colby at 4:00 p.m. UNE will host a doubleheader against Thomas tomorrow afternoon at 3:00 p.m.

Power Hitting Leads Polar Bears Over Mules in Softball Series Opener

BRUNSWICK, Maine – Marisa O'Toole and Adriane Krul each launched a homerun over the left field fence to power the Bowdoin softball team to a 2-1 win against visiting Colby in the teams' NESCAC series opener.

The Polar Bears improve to 20-9 on the season and 7-2 in NESCAC East action. Bowdoin travels to Colby (7-14, 2-4 NESCAC) tomorrow for a doubleheader beginning at 11:00 a.m. With the win, the Polar Bears reach the 20-win plateau for the ninth consecutive season.

O'Toole put the Polar Bears on the board early with a long shot over the left field fence in the opening inning. Colby threatened in the second, loading the bases with only one out, but Julia Geaumont and the Bowdoin defense were able to escape the inning unscathed. The junior pitcher tallied her second strikeout of the game to record out number two, with Claire McCarthy stepping on the plate for the force out to end the inning. Julia Saul continued to challenge the Bowdoin bats as she retired the side in order to wrap up the bottom half of the inning, inducing two groundouts and a fly ball.

Colby tied the game in the third, capitalizing off a leadoff double from Meaghan Lewia. The senior stole third, drawing the throw, and quickly advanced home as the ball found its way to the third base fence. Lewia's run was the only allowed by Bowdoin, as the Polar Bears held the Mules scoreless through the final four innings. After neither team was able to produce in the fourth, Krul cleared the fence to give the home team a 2-1 lead and eventual win.

Saul pitched five innings for Colby, tallying two strikeouts and no walks. Megan Michie came in to throw the final inning for the Mules, allowing no runs off two hits. Geaumont went the distance for Bowdoin with seven innings pitched and six K's. The junior allowed just three hits and no earned runs.

The first-year came around to score on Erica Pulford's shot to center before Bowdoin finally ended the inning, now trailing 1-0. Two of Bowdoin's four hits against Michie came off the bat of Marisa O'Toole.

Game Two Recap- Bowdoin 3, Colby 1

After being kept off the scoreboard in game one, Bowdoin jumped out to an early first-inning lead. Cielle Collins got the offense going with a single to left and advanced to second on a two-out single by Geaumont. Jordan Gowdy drove in Collins from second with another base hit.

Adriane Krul tagged a one-out double in the top of the fourth and came around to score on a Collins RBI double. The extra-base hits continued to drive in runs for the Polar Bears as Lauren O'Shea's two-out shot drove in Claire McCarthy all the way from first.

Collins went 4 for 4 at the plate and Katie Gately tallied three hits in the win. Krul also collected a pair of hits. Geaumont allowed five hits with as many strikeouts in her outing against Colby. The junior walked one.

The Polar Bears and Monks are both 25-11 after the midweek series, with the Polar Bears continuing non-conference play with a Friday doubleheader at Brandeis this Friday. The Monks begin their conference tournament on Friday.

Bowdoin escaped a bases loaded situation in the top of the second as the Monks filled the bases of a walk and singles from Victoria Ramos and Carla Trip. The Polar Bears responded in the bottom half of the inning with a two-run blast by Lauren O'Shea to right field. The Monks were poised to score in the top of the fifth with runners on second and third following an Theresa Hendrix double, but right fielder Siena Mitman robbed Melissa Mayhew of a homerun at the fence to end the inning.

The runs would hold as the game's only offense until Tripp tallied an RBI single in the top of the sixth to cut Bowdoin's lead to one. The Polar Bears closed out the top of the seventh by retiring the side in order to secure the win.

Game Two Recap- Bowdoin 8, Saint Joseph's 0

Bowdoin's bats came alive in game two, scoring three runs in the opening inning to jump out to the early lead.

The Polar Bears improve to 26-12 with the split against Brandeis (13-13) and return to action next Tuesday in their final regular season outing. Bowdoin will host Husson in a doubleheader beginning at 3:30 p.m.

Game One Recap – Bowdoin 9, Brandeis 0

The Polar Bears scored all nine runs off the six homers that were tallied in game one. The previous program record for total homeruns in a single game was three, a mark quickly surpassed by Bowdoin in the day's opener. Katie Gately and Julia Geaumont matched the program mark for homeruns in a single game with two each.

Gately's two-run blast to center in the top of the second gave Bowdoin the 2-0 lead, with Geaumont and Nicole Nelson each adding solo shots in the following inning to double the Polar Bears' lead. Bowdoin escaped several innings with Brandeis runners threatening from second and third base, but Emily Griffin and the Polar Bears were able to maintain the shutout. After loading the bases in the fifth, Brandeis was unable to convert and cut into Bowdoin's lead.

Gately wrapped her second homer of the day with a leadoff shot to left field, followed by a two-run shot from Cielle Collins to the opposite side. With Marisa O'Toole standing on first, Geaumont cleared the fence with her second homer of the day over the right field fence.

Griffin allowed four hits in the shutout. The sophomore tallied no walks or strikeouts in six innings of work. Nikki Cote and Melissa Soleimani each gave up three homeruns and seven hits. Cote tallied six strikeouts in her three-inning start for Brandeis.

Game Two Recap – Brandeis 6, Bowdoin 5

The Judges came back from a 5-4 deficit in the seventh inning to complete the rally and defeat Bowdoin in game two of the Friday series. Brandeis pushed runners across the plate in the bottom of the seventh with a sacrifice fly and a throwing error from Bowdoin.

Bowdoin took the 2-0 lead after three innings with RBI singles from Gately and Geaumont in the second and third innings. The Judges evened the score at 2-2 in the bottom of the fourth off another misplay and single. Gately again gave her team the lead with another RBI single to right field, scoring Siena Mitman, in the sixth. The Judges used the bottom half of that same inning to push ahead 4-3 as Cori Coleman homered to left and Danielle Novotny tagged an RBI single the same direction.

Geaumont tallied her third homerun of the day to give the Polar Bears a 5-3 lead in the top of the seventh with another two-run shot to center, but Bowdoin was unable to hold its lead as the Judges used their final at-bat to take the game. Geaumont allowed 12 hits with two walks and one strikeout in her down on the rubber. Samantha Wroblewski allowed the same number of hits with eight strikeouts and one walk in her seven innings for Brandeis.
