The NCAA Division III Men’s Ice Hockey Committee has announced it had selected Bowdoin to host the ice hockey championship March 21-22, 2014. The competition will take place at the Androscoggin Bank Colisée in Lewiston, Maine. The bid for the event was jointly submitted by Bowdoin and the Maine Sports Commission.
“Bowdoin is proud to be working with the Maine Sports Commission to bring the NCAA Division III Men’s Ice Hockey Championship to Maine,” said Bowdoin Interim Director of Athletics Tim Ryan. “Few places can match the passion for the sport of ice hockey that Maine possesses, and we’re looking forward to hosting a first-class event in this vibrant hockey community.”
This will mark the second time Bowdoin has hosted the finals round competition of an NCAA Championship. The College previously hosted the 1989 Division III Men’s Swimming and Diving Championships.
