Bowers, a sophomore, finished ninth out of 38 golfers and helped her Lady Patriot squad to a third place finish out of seven teams.
She carded identical 91s at the Cherry Blossom Golf Course in Georgetown to finish 27 shots behind the winner, Brescia’s Dana Langdon. Bowers finished five shots off the team lead.
Bowers opened the season 25th out of 43 golfers March 14-15 at the 15th Annual Eagle Invitational hosted by Embry-Riddle College in Daytona Beach, Fla.
Bowers shot an opening-round 93 and followed it up with a second round 98 for a two-day total of 191, which was 39 shots behind the winner, Heidi Lowe of host Embry-Riddle. Her total ranked third on the Cumberland golf team for the event.
As a team, the Lady Patriots finished fifth out of nine teams.
Cumberland’s golf team will return to the links April 8-9 at the Pikeville College Invitational in Prestonsburg.
Bowers is recovering from knee surgery, which caused her to miss most of last year, said her father Mike Bowers.
