Matt Bowe Talks New Look Cal Aquatics Mens/Womens Teams, Future for Armstrong

At the ASCA World Clinic in Las Vegas, SwimSwam caught up with newly named Cal Associate Head Coach, Matt Bowe. He explained to us why the new-look Cal aquatics program is more of a “collaboration” than a “combination”, at least for this year, as class schedules and practice times were already set. Bowe will be working primarily with the men, but on days where they have combined practices will be in charge of both genders on the shorter side of things.

Bowe also comments on Hunter Armstrong‘s future after moving to Berkeley, saying he thinks this will be a good change for the young backstroke specialist in more ways than one.

Anxious to see Coach Bowe’s results at Cal. He really did well at OSU…so I’m expecting big things.

Armstrong will have a great pool, great coaching staff and supportive/challenging training partners to reach the summit of his potential. The move is smart.

They will need A LOT of work done on the women’s side. I’m bearish on Cal women’s team for the next 2-3 years (no pun intended).
