How do you quantify her impact on the field hockey program at Bowdoin College the past four seasons?
Olivia King did not rack up an overwhelming number of goals or assists.
But from the moment she stepped onto the field as a freshman, the Brooks School graduate evolved into a driving force behind the Polar Bears’ success.
The 5-foot-2 King started all 83 games of her career, a remarkable feat considering she played a position, midfield, that requires an intense amount of athleticism.
And the 22-year-old from Georgetown ended her collegiate career the same way it started, with a Division 3 national championship, via a 1-0 win over Salisbury.
King, named the Outstanding Player of the NCAA tournament, earned first team All-American honors, along with fellow captain Katie Riley, and sophomore Rachel Kennedy.
