Call it a Comeback! Coach Bowman's Programs In Fantastic Shape After Team Redshirt Season

By Griffin Fabits, Sun Devil Athletics Graduate Assistant

About this time last summer, Bob Bowman and his staff were grappling with the prospect of running a collegiate swim and dive program in the midst of a pandemic, knowing the team was going to take a year off from competing.

Their athletes were away and in-person meetings were prohibited, so they settled on virtual workouts and Zoom meetings to guide the way, like nearly every other athletics program in the country.

Not ideal, no, but it's easy to take solace in the plan when it's Bowman leading the charge, the head coach of Team USA in 2007, 2009 and the 2013 World Championships.
