 Austin, Texas (PDI). Austin Seminary’s sand volleyballteam won the championship game of the co-ed AustinSand Volleyball League at Carlos ‘n Charlie’s on LakeTravis. This elite team of scholars finished the seasonwith only one loss, qualifying them for the playoffs.They squeaked through to the championship game andbeat their Goliath-like opponents. Some believe that theteam name, “Divine Intervention,” aided their predes-tined victory, while others attribute their going on to per-fection to the spirited play of interdenominational teammembers.The championship team members were Rev. ChizasonChunda, Ty Wood, Sarah Hegar, Heather Lee, JoséLopez, Brandon Miles, Jamie Peterson, Shane Webb,and Melea White.Plans for a tickertape parade on the driveway in front of McCord are in the works. Details will be announcedonce security and crowd control requirements are as-sessed.
