Bowman, 12, swimming in the Terrapin Meet in Concord, swam the 1,560 freestyle in 18 minutes, 50.71 seconds to break Cindy Enze Griffin's time of 18:53 set in 1968. Bowman, a seventh-grader at Pilgrim West Academy who has made breaking and setting records a hobby of hers over the years with Lodi, also set record for the fastest mark in the 500 free at the meet. Her time of 5:26.60 came in more than two seconds faster than Lori Scheideman's 5:28.52 set last year.
