They plan to pitch and also use Bowen as a hitter when she steps on campus for the highly successful program who finished third in the national tournament in 2017.

Bowen is one of the most prolific pitchers and home run hitters in Bulldog history and looks to lead her team to a Region title and a trip to Owensboro in 2018. The Lady Dawgs went 17-18 last year, winning another 60th district title before falling to Johnson Central in the Region semifinals. Lawrence Co. will move to the 58th this season along with Betsy Layne, Prestonsburg and Floyd Central.

“... I've been waiting on this day since I was a little girl. Signing with Wesleyan was a big decision in my life, and I'm so glad I made it. I have visited hundreds of schools, from Florida to Texas, but I knew Wesleyan was the right choice as soon as I stepped on campus. WVWC is one of the top academic schools in West Virginia, and the softball program plays for national championships year in and year out. You will not find a better coaching staff anywhere. They are awesome! It's my new home away from home. I'm so happy to be a Bobcat!”

“... Thanks to my mom and dad for driving me all over the country, and spending all kinds of money on me. Thank you to (coach) Kenny Horn for helping me become a better softball player, and a better person.”

Lady Dawg Head Coach Kenny Horn


“... I'm excited for Ciana. She has worked so hard to get this opportunity to play softball and further her education at the next level. Ciana understands her responsibilities in representing Lawrence County and paving the way for furture athletes. I couldn't think of a better young lady to do that!”
