Echo: The season finale against Bowdoin is this weekend, what excites you most about this game in particular?

Celaya: Our game this weekend is at night. It’ll be under the lights, and most of us haven’t experienced this since high school. The Bowdoin crowd always turns out, we’re excited to shut them down. I’m excited to end the season on a positive note to carry into the offseason. We’ll be playing for the CBB… and it’s Bowdoin.
