For the first time in nearly a decade, the Bowdoin College women’s basketball team checked-in first overall in the latest D3Hoops.com Top 25 Poll (Week One), which was posted late Monday evening.
The Polar Bears, who checked-in second overall in the preseason poll earlier this month, slid into the top spot in this week’s poll, thanks its current four-game winning streak, which includes wins over MIT and University of New England.
Bowdoin collected 17 first-place votes, while Hope and St. Thomas garnered a trio of first-place nods. Chicago, which checked-in fifth overall, secured two first-place votes.
The Polar Bears are one of four New England teams on this week’s poll as Tufts University and Amherst College secured the sixth and seventh positions, respectively, while St. Joseph’s (Maine) checked-in 12th overall.
Bowdoin visits Colby College on Saturday, December 1st with tip-off scheduled for 2 p.m.
