Sonoraville’s Bowman to continue career at Shorter

Sonoraville High senior Lindsay Bowman (seated, second from right) signed a basketball scholarship last week with the Shorter University. Bowman said of the signing: “It really shows if you work hard you can get to the point you wanted to be all along. When I got hurt, there were times I didn’t know if I would ever get here, but I tried to stay positive and continue to work hard toward my goal. I definitely had a lot of motivation to get here, and I’m thankful to get this opportunity. I’m also thankful for all the people that have helped me get here from my family to my coaches to my teammates. They all mean so much to me especially on a day like this. Shorter I really like because it’s close to home, and it feels like home when I’m there. I really like the school and the campus, and their coach is a lot like Coach (Stephanie) Caudell. It’s sad that high school is over. I’m going to miss Sonoraville and everyone here. But at the same time I’m ready to move on to the next chapter. I feel like I’ve grown up a lot the last few years, and I’m ready to get to Shorter to see what the future holds for me there.” Also attending the signing were: (seated, from left) Sister Kendall Bowman, father Greg Bowman, mother Tonya Bowman, (standing, from left) Sonoraville High principal Jennifer Hayes, former Sonoraville High assistant girls basketball coach Cody Townsend, Sonoraville High head girls basketball coach Stephanie Caudell, Sonoraville High assistant girls basketball coach Shawnda Martin and Sonoraville High athletic director Brent Mashburn.
