    Sometimes you might find a stray bug or worm in your produce, but a dangerous black widow spider? Believe it. That was the case for Jacob Vaughn, a third-year medical student at UTMC, who bought a bunch of fresh broccoli at Kroger in Maumee, only to find a large arachnid alive and acting feisty on the vegetables. The South Toledo man said he discovered the spider while washing off the broccoli before cooking it when "the spider came out and started waving his hands. It was pret...

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

The St. John's Titans are looking to take home a national title this weekend in rowing.

"I have a great group of guys, and I think all of them are so invested in the St. John's experience…and the theme of the sport," said Philip Levering, rowing coach.

That theme is working together.

"We've improved and kept improving," said Senior Erik Brodin. "We've shown ourselves to be a formidable team."

At the Midwest Regional earlier this month, the team earned three medals, plus a trip to nationals this week. But their success didn't happen overnight. The school has had a crew team for 30 years, and prior to this month, only had five Midwest Regional victories to show for it.

"We come here every day, sometimes even in the morning at like 5 a.m.," said Senior Austin Mack. "It's tiring, but I'm here for my team, and as long as they're having fun, I'm having fun."

The team credits their success to the fact that they're so close. In fact, they don't call each other teammates, they're brothers.

Win or lose at nationals, they've already made a big splash.
