In Bowen’s 17 years at Menlo School, he has guided his teams to the CCS finals 14 times—five of those as champions—and recorded his 400th win this past season. In 2017, Bowen was selected as a CIF Model Coach and was honored with the Bill Barnett Distinguished Coach National Award by USA Water Polo. Bowen was named a Positive Coaching Alliance Double-Goal Coach in 2012—a national award for his positive impact on youth athletes—as well as CCS All-Sport Honor Coach in 2006.
