    West sophomore quarterback John Balizan passed to senior wideout David Balizan for a 5-yard touchdown, and the Dons led 15-0 on Isaiah Deane's extra point.

    In a showdown between two of the best setters in Class 4A volleyball, Robertson’s Lauren Fulgenzi got the better of St. Mike’s Miquela Martinez on Thursday night at Mike Marr Gym.

    None the worse for wear after a recent foot injury, Fulgenzi appeared the more comfortable of the two, connecting with hitters across the front line and zipping in the occasional over-set to help the Lady Cardinals to a four-set victory.
