WNUR Sports Sweeps Daily Northwestern

WNUR Sports reclaimed the campus sports media crown on Tuesday, defeating the Daily Northwestern 13-4 in softball. The battle at Long Field was largely decided in the second inning, when the broadcasters broke through to build a 10-1 lead. Team captain/coach/crazyman Aaron Morse went 3 for 4, Frank Bauch added two key triples, and Brendan Flannery tacked on a long homerun. All of the WNUR players contributed both on offense and defense, allowing starting pitcher Guy Benson to cruise to a complete game victory, allowing 3 earned runs. Benson was named the game's MVP.

"It was all about my boys behind me making the plays," Benson said in a display of hilariously false humility. "Although with [fellow senior] Ray Garcia winning the game MVP the last two seasons, I felt a little pressure to perform well today--and I did."

With the win, WNUR bounces back from a disappointing (1-2) performance last season, in which they dropped the final two contests to the print journalists. The sweep of 06-07 is particularly sweet for the WNUR graduating seniors, including Garcia. "Estoy muy contento hoy," el dijo. "No me gusta 'El Daily,' y estoy satisfecho que ganamos en el partido."
