It would have been more fitting if Bowman, a senior all-American, had handed the baton to Price, a freshman. Because in essence, that is what's happening with the Vols every day so far during this magical spring.
In all, Bowman and Price helped Tennessee sweep all three distance relay races at Penn.
The Vols set a world record in the 6,000-meter relay (17:08.3) Friday and an American record in the 3,200-meter relay (8:17.9) Saturday. They also won the DMR (distance medley relay) in 11:02.1 on Thursday.
"It really couldn't have been any better," Bowman said of the weekend in Philadelphia. "To finally win some pennies (Penn Relay awards), to breaking records, to just winning. It was all very exciting."
