How the Defending Champs do it Different

PERRYSBURG TOWNSHIP (WTVG) - It won't be long before Owens Community College volleyball will be on the court defending it's 2018 National Championship.

It's a program that has enjoyed a ton of success with two coaches who have brought consistency to the Express.

Sonny Lewis is joined by his friend and assistant coach Denny Caldwell. In Sonny's 19th year he already has 700 wins with the Express.

Sonny has also been named the OCCAC Coach of the Year for the tenth time. His style though is different, not what he expects on the court but what he wears to matches. Denny has a collection of close to 30 Hawaiian shirts.

He said while looking at his closet, How did I get so many of these?."

The answer, cruises and gifts. He's been wearing the shirts since the mid-90's while coaching club volleyball.
