The Virginia Tech standout joins the staff after spending 2018-19 as an assistant coach for Northeast 10 Champion Assumption and as head coach at Holyoke High School. In addition to duties as a physical education instructor, Owen will be a key member of the Sports & Recreation aquatics staff.
As a communication studies major, Owen served as a team ambassador and was a member of the Hokies Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and Athletics Leadership Advisory Team. In the water, the 2016 Olympic trial qualifier earned All-American honorable mention status in the 200 and 400 medley relays while also taking part in the 400 free relay at the 2018 NCAA Division I Championships.
Owen, who was also part of the runner up 200 medley relay at the 2018 ACC Championships, is still atop the Virginia Tech program record board in all three events, as well as, the Christiansburg Aquatic Center pool record board in the 200 medley relay.
