Bowman scored two goals to boost the Warriors in the Class 2-A state championship game. That resulted in a 4-1 victory against Clinton on Friday night in Cary. She was named Most Valuable Player of the title game.
Bowman, a junior forward, was an instrumental part of Wheatmore’s 25-0-0 season that was capped by the school’s first state team championship.
In the West Region final earlier in the week, Bowman had the team’s only two assists in the 4-3 overtime triumph at Wilkes Central.
Bowman finished the season third on the team in goals (36) and tied for second in assists (23). She should be a part of a strong core of returning players for 2023 because team goals leaders Ellie Garrison (77), a sophomore), and Natalie Bowman (38), are freshman, also are part of a strong group of underclassmen.
