PRESQUE ISLE, Me (WAGM) - New University of Maine Presque Isle volleyball coach Jonathon Bowman has arrived on campus. Bowman takes over for Mark Kornachuk and left a position with the United States Youth Volleyball League in Long Beach, California. Bowman says he took the position because was interested in becoming a head coach again and wants to grow the game in Aroostook County.

"I am going to be working with the high schools and elementary schools trying to develop volleyball around here. Hopefully eventually we'll have clubs or some type of volleyball so they can build up their skills. There's potential athletes out there, but they just have to start learning the skills," Bowman said.

Bowman will also be an instructor in the Physical Education Department and will help out in Residence Life. We'll have a season preview with the Owls volleyball team on a future edition of Newssource 8.
