Athlete of the Month: Luke Bowman

Lance Tong

Sophomore Luke Bowman has been surrounded by water polo players since he was a child. His dad and sister both played, so it was only natural for him to start in sixth grade.

At first, Bowman saw an athletic career in soccer, but liked the challenge of playing a different sport and using a new skill set.

He played on the JV team for part of his freshman year and was moved to varsity soon after the season began. As a two meter specialist, Bowman is proud of his recent achievement of scoring seven goals in a varsity game.

He likes the team dynamic as he says his coach Cory Murphy connects very well with all the players due to his young age. Despite being only a sophomore, Bowman has been noticed by numerous college scouters and hopes to pursue water polo in college.
