Head Coach of ice hockey Terry Meagher became the sixth coach in Division III history to reach 500 career wins on November 26 against the University of New England, when the Bowdoin College men’s team erupted for five goals in the third period to dispatch its opponent 9-3.

The winningest coach in Bowdoin Athletics history, Meagher is the 22nd collegiate coach, across all divisions, to reach the 500-win plateau. In NCAA hockey history, he is just the 12th coach to win all of his 500 games at a single institution. With a winning percentage of .675 in his career over 31 seasons, Meagher’s teams have qualified for the postseason 30 times, winning a pair of ECAC Championships, the 2013 NESCAC title and have made five NCAA Tournament appearances.
