DANBURY, Conn. - Manhattan College softball standpout Kate Bowen has been named as one of the six ECAC Scholar Athlete of the Year Award recipients for the 2013-14 academic year.

The ECAC Scholar-Athlete Awards honor the outstanding academic and athletic achievements of student-athletes representing ECAC schools in Division I, II and III. One male and one female athlete from each division are selected based on extraordinary achievements in academics, athletics and community service.

Bowen, a Physical Education major, wrapped up her college career as the Manhattan College Class of 2014 Valedictorian. In addition to speaking at commencement, Bowen also earned Capital One Academic Third Team All-America honors. The Newtown, Conn. native was a three-time member of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) All-Academic Team and a three-time National Fastpitch Coaches Association All-America Scholar-Athlete. Bowen finished her academic career with a 3.86 cumulative grade point average (GPA).

On the field, Bowen was a two-time First Team All-MAAC performer as both an infielder and utility player. The two-year team captain was twice named Manhattan College Female Student-Athlete of the Year and also selected as one of 30 candidates for the 2014 Senior CLASS® Award. The award is presented to NCAA Division I seniors and celebrates achievements in the areas of community, classroom, character and competition. Bowen leaves Manhattan with the school’s all-time record in games played (190) and at-bats (618), while being second all-time in hits (211).

In addition to her academic and athletic success, Bowen also spent time serving the University and local community.
