Polar Bear Women's Basketball Camps
The winter of 2016-17 will be the ninth at the helm for Bowdoin head coach Adrienne Shibles. No coach in program history has enjoyed a better start to their career, as Shibles has gone 173-55 (.759) with a NESCAC title and seven NCAA Tournament appearances to begin her Bowdoin career.
In her first year at the helm of the Polar Bears in 2008-09, Shibles enjoyed a phenomenal campaign, guiding the team to their eighth NESCAC Championship title, ninth consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance and 24-5 record overall. For her efforts, Shibles was named the NESCAC and WBCA New England Coach of the Year. Additionally, the 24 victories were the most by a first-year coach in program history. In 2011, Coach Shibles led the Polar Bears to the Sweet Sixteen for the second year in a row. In those two seasons, the Polar Bears have racked up 46 wins, including 4 NCAA victories. Shibles took Bowdoin back to the NCAA tournament in 2014 after opening the season with 15 consecutive victories. The Polar Bears advanced to the NESCAC Finals in 2015 and made a run to the NCAA Sweet Sixteen before ending their season at 25-5. Bowdoin again advanced to the NCAA Sweet Sixteen in 2016, ending the season at 22-7.
In her first three seasons, Shibles accumulated 70 wins - the most by any coach in program history in their first three years - the 2009 NESCAC Championship and three consecutive NCAA Tournament home regionals.
A 1991 graduate of Bates College, Shibles is a native of Knox, Maine and graduate of Mount View High School. At Bates she was a two-time captain of the women's basketball team at a 1,000-point scorer, graduating with a degree in History and American studies. After coaching basketball at Babson College and basketball and soccer at Colby College, Shibles enrolled in a graduate program in Exercise and Sports Studies at Smith College, where she earned a master's degree in 1996. While at Smith she worked as assistant and then head basketball coach at Elms College in Massachusetts.
At Swarthmore, she sparked a dramatic turnaround that saw the Garnet go from 7-17 one year prior to her arrival in 1997 to a school-record 23 wins and Centennial Conference Championship just four years later. In her last five seasons at Swarthmore, Shibles averaged over 19 wins per year, qualified for the Centennial Conference Tournament four times, claimed the 2001 conference title and earned the program's first-ever NCAA Tournament bid. Overall, in nine years at Swarthmore, Shibles accumulated a school-record 138 wins against 96 losses and was named the WBCA District 4 Coach of the Year in 2001. In her tenure, she recruited and coached two Kodak All-Americans, an Academic All-American, a Josten's Trophy Recipient and two Conference Players of the Year. In addition, Swarthmore was a perennial member of the WBCA's Top-25 Academic Honor Roll under Shibles.
Shibles and her husband moved their family back to Maine in 2006, where she became the Dean of Athletics and Co-Curricular Programs at Gould Academy. While coaching the girl's basketball team to three-straight Maine State Tournaments, she also served as the school's Athletic Director, managing a program of forty teams including nationally competitive on-snow squads.
Married to Kirk Daulerio, Shibles has two children, Madeline and Elsa.
Former Maine high school standout Toby Martin joined Bowdoin as an assistant coach in the summer of 2014.
A three-time Kennebec Valley Conference Player of the Year and two-time All-State selection at Maranacook, Martin played Division II basketball at Franklin Pierce University where she helped lead the Ravens to the 2009 Northeast-10 Conference Championship and a pair of NCAA Regional titles. In 2009, she was named to the NCAA Regional All-Tournament team as Franklin Pierce advanced to the national championship game.
After graduation, Martin played professionally in Germany for three years for the Qtsu Dragons, twice leading the league in scoring. She comes to Bowdoin after two years as an assistant coach at the University of Southern Maine, where she served under head coach Gary Fifield. During her time with the Huskies, she helped lead the team to a pair of 20-win seasons, including an NCAA Tournament berth in 2013.
