Local Owl saidJust logged on to fauowlsnest. Basketball and baseball winning. Feel a good that we have serious athletics. Proud to be an owlPosted On: Feb 27th 2021, 6:28 PM
It's a great time to be an Owl, that's for sure! Women's basketball is playing the best they've played in years. Men's soccer has yet to lose this campaign. Spring football starts soon. AND we're living in Paradise!
There's the go-ahead! The Owls retake the lead thanks to a @JaredDeSantolo RBI single. We're stretching in Paradise as Hunter Cooley does his job on the mound.#SHU 9 - #FAU 10 | M7 | @LealLaw pic.twitter.com/XtO3maBssE— FAU Owl's Nest (@FAU_Owls_Nest) February 27, 2021
