University of Redlands Junior Onesa Bowman Named SCIAC Women’s Track & Field Athlete of the Year
April 30, 2009 -
Junior Onesa Bowman (Pomona, CA) earned the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) Women’s Track & Field Athlete of the Year award following a SCIAC Championship where she won two individual titles, according to an announcement made today by the conference office.
Bowman monopolized the top of the podium in the shorter sprint events and also played a crucial role on a second-place relay team at the 2009 SCIAC Track & Field Championships. She won the 100m Dash title with a time of 12.56, outperforming the second-place runner by .28 seconds. She then went on and blitzed past the field in the 200m Dash, winning with a 25.35. That 200m Dash standard stood .65 quicker than the next-fastest competitor. Her 100m Dash time moved her up to eighth all-time in program history in the event, and she moved up to fifth all-time in the 200m Dash. Bowman also participated on Redlands’ 4x100m Relay, which took fourth, and fired off an anchor split of 55.9 to help the Bulldog 4x400m Relay claim a second-place finish (4:02.45).
Jeff Clark of Claremont-Mudd-Scripps Colleges was unanimously selected as the SCIAC Men’s Track & Field Athlete of the Year after he won the High Jump, the Long Jump and the Triple Jump at the 2009 SCIAC Track & Field Championships.
All eight of the conference’s head track & field coaches vote on the Athletes of the Year at their annual postseason meeting.
