Wichita Falls forward Bowman makes NCAA DI commitment

June 8, 2016
The Wichita Falls Wildcats of the North American Hockey League (NAHL) are pleased to announce that forward Nick Bowman has committed to play Division I NCAA hockey at Miami of Ohio University of the National Collegiate Hockey Conference (NCHC). He will begin his college hockey career at the start of the 2018-19 season.
Bowman, 18, played for the Wildcats towards the end of the 2015-16 regular season, appearing in the final games of a record-setting season. He played in both contests during Pack the House weekend against the Corpus Christi IceRays, notching a goal in just his second game in a Wildcats' uniform. Overall in three games, Bowman (6’1/185) recorded one goal.
Following in the footsteps of Wildcats center Nick Rosa, Bowman captained Brother Rice High School to a dominant season in 2015-16. In just 27 games played, the Shelby, Michigan native tallied 50 points (25 goals, 25 assists). He signed a tender to play for the Wildcats during the 2016-17 season.
Bowman became the third Wildcat in the last two seasons to have committed to Miami, joining Ben Lown and Rourke Russell as the only others in team history.
A draft pick of the Cedar Rapids Rough Riders (USHL), Bowman has not yet decided whether he will play with the Wildcats or the Riders in the 2016-17 campaign. In either case, he will utilize the upcoming two seasons to push himself into reaching what many believe to be tremendous potential before starting his college hockey career.
He is the 10th player that played for the Wildcats during the 2015-16 season who has made an NCAA Division I commitment this season.
