over the Owls in the Activities Center.
Now with an 0-4 record in District 29-AAAA, the Owls fall to
7-19 on the year. In the coming week, they’ll go to

scarcity of fouls, especially against Hondo. The Owls were
whistled for a foul only once in the entire game, and that came in
the fourth period. The Greyhounds did not shoot a free throw.
