SPOKANE, Wash. - The leading scorer in Gonzaga history may not have been drafted, but she's getting a chance to make it to the WNBA anyway.  SWX confirmed Heather Bowman has an invitation to the Seattle Storm's training camp on Apr. 25.

Bowman, a former star at Spokane's Lewis & Clark High School, will join teammate Vivian Frieson as the only Bulldogs in school history to participate in a WNBA camp.  Frieson was drafted by the Tulsa Shock on April 8.

"I am so proud of Heather," said Gonzaga coach Kelly Graves in a news release. "She had a great career at Gonzaga and she truly is 'Zag Basketball'. I am happy she gets the opportunity to go to training camp and a chance to play at the next level. The Seattle Storm is a classy and well-run organization."

"I am ecstatic to have the opportunity to try out for the Seattle Storm," added Bowman. "I am extremely excited to head over to Seattle and begin the next stage of my playing career."

Bowman ended her career at Gonzaga as one of the most prolific players in the history of the West Coast Conference.  She was both the Gonzaga and WCC leading scorer with 2,165 points, and was a four-time All-WCC honoree. She was the WCC Newcomer of the Year in 2007 and the 2008 WCC Player of the Year. Over her four year career Bowman averaged 16.8 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.0 assists per game.
