Slideshow: Men’s Tennis Team Receives 2016 NCAA Championship Rings

NCAA Championship Ring Ceremony Jan. 28, 2017

The Bowdoin men’s tennis team was feted Saturday evening in Daggett Lounge as the nine-member squad received its 2016 NCAA Division III Championship rings at a ceremony in their honor.

The Polar Bears, who defeated Middlebury 5-0 in the title match on May 25 of last year, ended their campaign with a record of 20-3 and became the first Bowdoin men’s team to win an NCAA Championship.

A photo gallery of the event is available here.

The Polar Bears will begin defense of their national title soon, as spring practice begins February 15 with their first matches scheduled for Sunday, March 12, in California.

    So excited for Coach Smith, Coach Hobie and the Bowdoin Tennis programs. There are countless alums who have helped build the program for decades and especially in the last 20 years. This championship is a long time in the making. We celebrate with this special team on an incredible season and a remarkable NCAA tournament run. We will be rooting on both the men’s and women’s programs for success this spring.
