Additionally for his career, Bowman has a .295 batting average with 41 doubles, seven triples and 24 stolen bases. The slugger is also a defensive presence, making just one error in 370 career chances (that coming on his final chance of the 2011 season in the Clemson Regional).
Bowman hit 13 home runs as a freshman, earning Freshman All-American honors and second team All-Big South. As a sophomore, Bowman hit 15 round-trippers, while driving in 53, and was tabbed the Big South Tournament MVP. He led the Chants with 17 RBI in the postseason, helping CCU to Big South Tournament and NCAA Regional titles. Bowman earned Big South All-Tournament honors this past spring.
