Lowery came to UTB/TSC after a successful six-year stint as Head Women's Volleyball Coach at National American University in Rapid City, S.D. His 2002 and 2006 teams won the NAIA National Women's Volleyball championships with undefeated 41-0 records both times.
His first year at UTB/TSC resulted in a 34-3 record and a Red River Athletic Conference championship. The Scorpions reached the NAIA National Championship quarterfinals and had two players gain All-America status.
During his second year in Brownsville in 2010, he posted a 38-2 record, the best won-loss percentage in the history of UTB/TSC volleyball in the NAIA era. His team won the RRAC title again, and reached the semifinals of the NAIA National Championship. Two of his players were named NAIA All-Americans.
Lowery won his third national championship in his third year at UTB/TSC. He went 32-2, and the national title was the first for the university in any sport. Two players were named NAIA All-Americans.
In 2013, the 21-year old merger between UTB and TSC ended. The women's volleyball program competes for UTB and their new mascot is the Ocelots.
The Ocelots finished 2013 as NAIA National Champions with an undefeated record, the first at UTB, of 37-0 which gave Lowery his fourth overall national title and second at UTB. Danica Markovic was selected as the NAIA Player of the Year and had five other players receive All-American honors. UTB also won the RRAC title for the fifth time in a row and was named RRAC Co-Coach of the year. Over the course of the season, Lowery's UTB squad beat an total of ten teams in the NAIA Top 25. The Ocelots started the season ranked No. 3 in the country but a home win over then No. 1 Concordia gave them the number one spot and they never relenquished it taking it all the way to the national title game.
Including his four years at UTB/TSC, Lowery has amassed a career record of 345 wins and 31 losses for a .917 winning percentage, the highest mark among active coaches in the NAIA.
After the 2007 season, NAU dropped its volleyball program, leaving Lowery without a team and his players without a school to play for. He did not coach during the 2008 season.
Lowery earned a Master of Education degree in Education Administration in 2002 from Chadron State. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Physical Education with a Minor in Athletic Coaching, Chemistry, and Health and Wellness from Black Hills State University (S.D.) in 2000.
