My San Antonio Visit............

Dr. Robert "Speedy" Jaklich '76, Mark "Spider" Pawzun '75, Dave "Bulz" Bulik '71

All three SCHS favorite sons played basketball at St, Mary's Univ in San Antonio TX.

I had the distinct honor of playing golf with these outstanding gentlemen at Silverhorn Golf Course in San Antonio this past week. We were 5 under. As Mark Pawzun was backing out of a sand trap, he tripped and did a complete backward summersault with the grace and elegance of a seasoned gymnast. The 3 judges each gave him a 10 on his performance.

You ask how Dr. J appears so tall in the photo above......answer below.....

From there the offense, defense and special teams took over for the rest of the game as the Angels were able to defeat St. Francis 58-6. John Perugini connected with Jakari Oliver for a 2 yard passing TD. DJ Miller had touchdown runs of 6 yards and 75 yards, Sam Driver had a 48 yard interception return for a touchdown, John Peruguni had a 62 yard touchdown run, Davion Thomas-Kumpula had a 78 yard kickoff return for a touchdown and Javion Hunter had a 69 yard touchdown run. The Angels will next host Campbellsport at Horlick Athletic Field on Friday night at 7:00pm.

The Lady Angels gave everything they had, unfortunately in the end Pius took the 25-13, 25-6, 25-19 victory ending the Angels season. Julissa Gentry led the team with 12 kills, while Katelyn Gordon had 4 blocks, 2 kills and 1 ace.

Boys Volleyball Boys volleyball finished off its regular season on Tuesday night as they hosted Wilmot Union.
