Bryson Bowman became Catawba Valley's first MLB Draft pick after being selected in the 33rd round of the 2016 MLB Draft by the New York Yankees.
After declining to sign with the Yankees, Bowman return to Western Carolina and finished his senior season with a team-best .381 batting average, 59 RBI and 11 home runs — becoming the 16th player in school history to win the Catamounts' Triple Crown award. He earned first team All-SoCon honors and shared SoCon Player of the Year honors.
