Bowman, the first UT 1500m All-American since Jasmin Jones in 1991, became the sixth Lady Vol to earn A-A distinction at this meet. She joins junior Shanna Dickenson, who earned accolades in the discus and hammer throws, as well as 4x100m relay finals participants in juniors LaTonya Loche and Cleo Tyson, sophomore Celriece Law and freshman Lynne Layne.
With nine points, the Big Orange women wound up tied for 27th in the team standings. Arizona State won the women's title with 60 points, followed by LSU (53), Michigan (36), Texas A&M (34) and UCLA (30) rounding out the top five.
Today's action concluded the collegiate season, but several Lady Vols may return to action later this month at the USA Senior and Junior Outdoor Track & Field Championships. Those meets are scheduled for June 20-24 in Indianapolis, with top finishers earning berths on U.S. squads that will compete this summer at such events as the World Championships.
