BRUNSWICK, Maine - The Bowdoin College women's basketball team celebrated Senior Weekend with a pair of wins, thanks in part to a key late-season acquisition.

Prior to Friday's game, the Polar Bears welcomed Harpswell three year-old Madison Arndt and her family, who joined the team through the Austen Everett Foundation. Madison, who battled pediatric cancer and is now in remission, spent time with the team prior to Friday's game against Middlebury and was introduced as an honorary team captain during starting lineups.

The Austen Everett Foundation works to inspire, empower, and embolden the lives of kids battling cancer by uniting the fight of these extraordinary individuals with professional and collegiate athletic teams. For more information visit
