By From page B8 | April 28, 2013

Davis High graduate Nick Watney has been the model of consistency at the Zurich Classic this weekend at TPC Louisiana as he shot his third consecutive 3-under 69 on Saturday. The former Blue Devil, who got his first PGA Tour victory at this event in 2007, overcame early bogeys on both his front and back nine on Saturday.

Watney finished his round with a birdie on No. 18 and was at 9-under and tied for 11th.

Lucas Glover increased his lead to two strokes with a 2-under 70. He was at 14-under par.

Levien has a hat trick

Sophomore Hannah Levien, a Davis High graduate, had three goals on Saturday but the third-seeded Marist women’s water polo team suffered a 12-9 loss to second-seeded Iona in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Tournament semifinals.

Levien’s hat trick all came in the second half for the Red Foxes (24-12, 10-2 MAAC).
