I forgot to talk on Tuesday but the hockey team had a big week last week going 4-1 and taking second at the  Pioneer Classic. They fell to Olentangy Orange on Sunday, but the highlights of the week for the Brave included going 3-0 in the group stage and earlier in the week defeating #6 ranked Olentangy Liberty. The Brave move up 1 spot in the state rankings this week up to #6 and have a big weekend coming up with 2 rivalry matchups versus Miami tomorrow and Archbishop Moeller on Saturday, which will be streamed live on Channel 85.

The boys basketball team fell to Taylor on tuesday night by a score of 54-49, the points leader for the Brave was Jonathan Richter with 21, and Luke Schlichter came off the bench to add 13 tallies for the Brave. They fall to 3-11 on the year and will take on Harrison at home tomorrow.

The girls basketball team fell to Edgewood by a 67-43 score, they fall to 6-10 on the year and 3-3 in the conference. Their next game is Saturday at 2:30 versus Mount Healthy.

I glossed over Ac Chal and Swimming on Tuesday but we’ll take a more in depth look at their events today, starting with the academic team.

Congratulations to the academic challenge team for setting a record in points scored in a match, in defeating Ross 100-43 and 100-38, to improve to 4-0 on the season.  The team was led by strong performances by Michelle Miao and Jens Bartel.  The JV lost a close match to Ross despite a good match by Ben Zazycki.  The team is back in action next Wednesday in a match against Northwest.

This past weekend the Brave Swim & Dive teams faced off against league-rival Harrison.  The boys soundly defeated Harrison 173-111, while the girls, who were missing 5 key swimmers, eked out a 139-137 victory.  The boys were led by Alex Carlson, Ben Crowder, and Maxx Gregg, all of whom won both of their individual events.  For the girls Maren Patterson and Hannah Lippincott were both double event winners as well.  The Brave Swim & Dive teams will host Badin and Waynesville Friday night and on Saturday they will travel to Mason for a meet with Mason, LaSalle, and Mercy McAuley.

The wrestling team defeated Middletown last night and fell to Edgewood, highlights for the Brave included Davis Williams recording a pin versus the Middies and Nick Engelhard won his match versus the Cougars. The next match for the team will be February 6th at the SWOC dual tournament.

Picture day is Friday for all in-person learners.

Talawanda teachers have been figuring out how to address recent events around the country, we checked in with a few of them to see how they were discussing the events with their students

And now for our daily sports report with Luke West-Poley

Welcome back THS, I hope everyone is staying safe and is glad to be here today, I am glad to be back in front of a real camera again, it’s been a while.

Tracking back to last week the boys basketball team fell to Northwest, Ross and Kings, the final game being an overtime defeat, they fall to 3-10 on the year and 1-4 in the conference with their next matchup being with Taylor tonight.

The girls team went 2-1 last week with a defeat on Monday to Taylor, a conference victory later versus Harrison and a resounding 50-24 win over Dayton Stivers. The girls improve to 6-9 overall on the year and 3-2 in the conference with their next game set for tomorrow at Edgewood.

The bowling teams both picked up victories over Mount Healthy, for the girls the win came by just 4 pins but for the boys it was a dominant 700 pin victory, both teams pick up their second victory on the year and will head to Northwest Lanes to take on the Knights this Thursday.

The academic team started their season off with 2 blowout wins versus Edgewood last Wednesday 99-44 and 83-44 were the scores of the matches, so a strong season opener for Ac Chal they will look to continue the momentum this Wednesday at Ross.

Both swim teams picked up victores in their duals over Harrison last week, for the girls it was a 2 point victory over the wildcats and for the boys it was a 62 point win.

And that’s our broadcast for today, super excited to be back, have a great day Talawanda, stay safe and we’ll see you all back here on Thursday.
