The Latest of the Lowen family

Jennifer and Bill Lowen

Elite Series pro Bill Lowen and his wife Jennifer welcomed Nevaeh Ann Marie Lowen to their family at approximately 4 o'clock this morning. Lowen was practicing for a local charity event yesterday when he got a call informing him that Jennifer was going to the hospital to have the baby.

 "I was on the water when I got the call, so I got there as soon as I could," Lowen said.

 Jennifer travels with Bill to Elite Series events, and if all goes well, Nevaeh ("Heaven" spelled backward) will be along for the ride next year as well.

 "This shouldn't slow us down a bit. I don't plan on missing any tournaments. It will be great having her on the road next season if it all works out."

 Lowen was thrilled with the birth of his first child and equally excited to be a father.

 "It's the most awesome thing I've ever seen."
