    PLYMOUTH State University’s Associate Athletic Director and former ski racing coach Kim Bownes has been named the 2014 Theo Kalikow Award winner for her efforts in advancing women’s issues.

    Bownes has been an administrator in the athletics department since 2008 and served as the men’s and women’s varsity ski coach for 21 years. She is the past recipient of the Eastern Collegiate Ski Conference MacConnell Division Coach of the Year award and the Walter Smith Coaches Award. She earned a bachelor’s from McGill University and a master’s from Plymouth State.
