Q & A With Behrend Lions Golf Coach James Bowen
What are your thoughts on your team at this point in your fall season?

Who is performing particularly well for the team right now?

conference championships. I have seven or eight players who are all

What are your expectations for the end of the season and championships?
I am looking forward to the AMCC Conference championships this weekend at Tom's Run. I think that we will do well and we do have a real good chance of winning the conference.
