Owls surge to sweep St. Bonaventure

Laguna Blanca’s spikers stayed composed down 7-1 in the third game, and Monica Beltran led the Owls back to a 9-9 tie it what would eventually become a 25-23, 25-19, 25-23 victory over visiting St. Bonaventure.

First-year Owls coach Jim Alzina has decided that statistics are often better reported with the aid of historical comparisons.

“Annie Varni was our kill leader, pounding more spikes than a railroad worker,” he said. Varni actually had 13, a number which John Henry would certainly hammer down before breakfast.

Professor Alzina quickly transitioned to the subject of archaeology in East Africa.

“Katie Borden had 10 kills and more digs than Dr. Leakey.”

That’s a lot of digs.

The Owls (10-1) play at Cate on Saturday in a rivalry match which should draw more fans than the 1910 World’s Fair in Brussels.
