February 18th, 2019 - Owls top Carp in Cup Final!
The Ashland Owls claimed their first Cup title with a two game sweep of the Santa Monica Carp. The Owls were led by short stop "Chop" Escalante who had six hits over two games. The real sorry was the 12 inning game 1 that gave Ashland an early lead in the series – and saw the Carp leave a whopping 18 runners on base. Congratulations to obadiah and the Ashland Owls!

The cup final is Monday and will feature the #7 Santa Monica Carp (II.1) against the #39 ranked Ashland Owls (II.2). Both Optics and obadiah are season owners still looking for their first Cup title. Should be an exhilarating final series -- good luck to both Optics and obadiah!
