Guatemala won the men’s team title with 64 points, and Costa Rica won the women’s team title with 62.5 points.  Guatemala won the combined team title, scoring a combined 116.5 points between the men’s and women’s teams.  Panama placed fourth overall scoring a total of 50 points, 23 for the men and 27 for the women.

Bowen has three meets remaining for Panama through November.  He will compete in the Ibero-American Championships in August, the U-23 South American Championships in October, and the Central American and Caribbean Games in November.
