Laguna Blanca outlasted Bishop Diego in a wild first set, propelling the Owls to a sweep in a crosstown boys volleyball match on Friday at Bishop.

Laguna Blanca pulled out a 31-29 victory and rode the momentum of the win to 25-10, 25-15 decisions in the next two sets.

Chris Constantino and Henry Farrell led the attack for the Owls (12-2), and Pierce O'Donnell "set very well," said coach Jon Roberts.

"But the highlight of the night was an incredible dig by Charly MacNeil," Roberts noted. "That play really fired us up."

Bishop was led by Luca Jordano with 12 kills and Jake Klentner with five.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
