And now for THS Teacher of the Year: Mrs. Sammons

Birthdays for today: Ryan Mcguire turns 16 and Skyler Brown turns 17.

And now for world news, and then a poor Patty G substitute with sports

Congratulations to the baseball team as they defeated Little Miami 5 to 4 last night.  This is the second straight SWOC victory for the Braves, giving them a 2-0 league record and putting them in first place with Ross and Edgewood.

The JV baseball team lost yesterday by a score of 5 to 12 to Little Miami.  Themio Amarantos and Austin Crank left the game early due to injury, and the Braves were unable to recover from the losses.  Freshman baseball evened their SWOC record yesterday at 1 and 1 with a victory over Little Miami 12 to 10.  Great job boys.

The Varsity softball team lost a hard tough battle to Little Miami 13-12 in 8 innings.  Ashley Earick and Sophie Pierce pitched well for the Braves, with Kayla Barger contributing several hits during the contest.  The player of the game was Reese Lindley, who had 5 RBIs yesterday.  The Braves are back in action today at Home against Brookville at 4:30, with the JV playing right after.

Tennis also played Saint X yesterday, but that score was not reported.  Probably because X didn’t want to be embarrassed publicly because of how badly the Braves beat them.

On the brighter side today, Talawanda would like to give kudos to Joelle Knox.  Joelle Knox is a freshman who recently was asked to go up and say hello to a new student at lunch to make them feel at home.  She not only said hello to make sure this student knows their are friendly faces at THS, but she went above and beyond by inviting the student to sit at her lunch table.  The student now sits at that table every day and very much looks forward to lunch with his new friends.  Lets keep up this positive attitude Talawanda.

And that’s all the time we have for today here at Brave Daily News.  Have a good day Talawanda.

Good morning Talawanda! Today is Monday, April 9, 2018

Setting Stone will be meeting today after school in Mr. Aerni’s room for final proofreading of the magazine layout, and to discuss the upcoming Coffee House

Best Buddies members will meet tomorrow after school. This is the last meeting of the year! Don’t forget to turn in your permission slip and $6.00 to Mrs. Sammons.

The list of seniors who will be graduating with honors is now posted outside the counselor’s office. This is the first year seniors will be graduating with the Latin system: Summa Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude, and Cum Laude. These will replace the Highest Honors, High Honors, and Honors.

For AP students: pre-administration sessions will occur during early release on Wednesday, April 18 and April 25. You must attend either one of these sessions.

Along with admissions details, Kathy Lamb from the tutoring and Learning Center will be on hand to give students information about a free college readiness program over the summer at Miami-Hamilton.

These students are excused from their classes to attend the event, which they can consult with their teachers if necessary. Also, if anyone has a mower that sounds strange or funny, please let any of these students know.

And now for world news, and then Patty G with sports

The baseball team went 1-1 on the weekend picking up a 5-2 win at Little Miami Friday and a 6-1 L at St. X yesterday. They are now 1-0 in the conference, but 1-4 overall.

The softball team swept Walnut Hills in a doubleheader played Saturday. The Braves won the first game 14 to 2 and the second 8 to 3. It’s their first two wins of the season, and they’re now 2-4.

In other results, the boys’ tennis team lost at Wyoming Friday by a score of 5-0. They’re now 3-2 overall.

Patrick Reed is the Master’s Champion. He made a par put on the 18th hole that just fell in to beat Rickie Fowler by one stroke. It’s his first major win. He finished the tournament 15 under. In Hockey, Minnesota Duluth won the national championship by beating Notre Dame 2-1.

And you probably heard about that awful tragedy that occurred in Saskathcewan on Friday night. The Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team’s bus was hit by a tractor-trailer on their way to game 5 of a playoff series in a neighboring town. 15 people out of 29 were killed on that bus, including the team captain, the head coach, and the radio announcer. This shook the hockey community this weekend as moments of silence were observed at every NHL game and at the NCAA championship game. If you’re an athlete, we know that a bus is a safe-haven, a second home for our teams. They are where memories are made, and we know this is shocking. For everyone though, and I’m not a person that tries to be negative or demoralizing, but the moral of the story is, don’t take a single day for granted — because you just never know. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers, Talawanda.
