College Hockey:
Bowdoin Brings O’Neil Back to Coach

Bowdoin is turning to a former Polar Bears player to lead its women’s hockey team.

Marissa O’Neil has been named the team’s head coach, replacing Stacy Wilson, who stepped down in May.

O’Neil helped the Polar Bears to a pair of NESCAC Championships and four NCAA Tournament appearances as a player from 2001 to 2005. She coached Williams last season.

“We are excited to have Marissa returning to Bowdoin,” Bowdoin athletic director Jeff Ward said in a statement. “She left as one of the best athletes in Bowdoin history and we’ve watched her coaching career blossom with pride. After she interviewed, it was clear that she has become an exceptional coach. She was the unanimous choice of the committee to lead our women’s hockey program.”
