Birthdays for today: Kaela Barger turns 16, Olivia Wolk turns 17, Jordon Morehead turns 18, and special HBD to Patty G who is 17 today.

And now for World News and then the birthday boy with sports.

The Vegas Golden Knights have made it a series against Winnipeg after a 3-1 to win in Game 2 last night at Bell MTS Place. Jonathan Marchessault had that goal for Vegas that won the game in the 3rd period, assisted by Miami’s own Reilly Smith. So that series is now tied 1-1 going to Vegas on Wednesday night, and in the NBA, the Warriors knocked off Houston in game 1 of the Western Conference Final to take a 1-0 series lead in that one.

The lacrosse team’s season came to an end yesterday with a 16 to 2 loss against CHCA in a first-round playoff matchup. Grady Holmes and Eddy Ingersoll scored the goals for Talawanda. So we send our congratulations to the lacrosse team, who had a tough season but played pretty well.

Well Talawanda, that is it for me here on Brave TV this year.  Our last broadcast is Thursday and I have AP tests tomorrow and Thursday. It’s been a great pleasure and honor to spend a few minutes of almost every school day with you this year, and I hope to be back next year with the sports. So, Talawanda, thanks for listening to and enjoying the news this year. I’m Patrick Geshan, for the final time this year, have a great day, enjoy the summer, and I’ll see you at graduation as Mrs. Sammons and I will lifestream it for the second straight year.  Have a good one Talawanda.

It was an unexpected day in the playoffs yesterday. First, the Celtics beat the Cavs at the Garden by 25 points to take a 1-0 Eastern Conference Final lead, and in that clip you saw there, the Caps stormed into Tampa to take 2 straight, and will have a chance to clinch at home in game 4 as they take the 2-0 lead back to Washington.  I like that.

Well, Talawanda wise, I apologize to the lacrosse team first off, because  I said your playoff game was on Friday, and while you did play on Friday, it was not a playoff game, instead you finished off the regular season at Franklin against Franklin. So, to be clear, the playoff game against CHCA is TONIGHT at 7:00 pm in Cincinnati.  The lacrosse team did win their game on Friday in Franklin by a score of 11 to 7.  So we wish them the best of luck again tonight, and again, I’m sorry for the confusion.

Other than that, nothing else to report here on this Monday.  I wish all of the seniors the best of luck and a great and safe summer.

That’s our broadcast here on this Monday! I’m Patrick Geshan. Congratulations Seniors!

The softball team’s season ended yesterday with a second-round playoff loss at Mason. They finish with a record of 7 and 18 overall, and 3 and 9 in the SWOC. They were a young team, so there’s more experience now and a better future ahead.

Well, my wish came true on Monday night as Washington knocked off Pittsburgh in overtime to advance to their first conference final since 1998. Also on Monday night, the Predators knocked off the Jets in Game 6, so there will be Game 7 in Nashville Thursday night. In the NBA, The Cavs also on Monday ended their series with a big sweep over Toronto, so they move on to the conference final as well. Last night in the NBA, Houston ended their series with a win over Utah, and Golden State also ended theirs with a win over New Orleans.

Well yesterday some primary and regular elections took place in Butler County and we have the results. First, the primary for Ohio Governor. Mike Dewine won the GOP primary with 60% of the vote, for the democrats Richard Cordray knocked off 5 opponents with 62% of the vote, so they will face off for the governorship in November. There was also a GOP primary for a senate seat and Jim Renacci won that, so he takes on Sherrod Brown, the democrat, in the Senate election in November. Locally, the levy for new bike trail system in the city of Oxford passed with 69% of the vote, and Mr. Mills and Milford Township voted for a new roads levy that passed with 62% of the vote.

In sports, Last night at the SWOC Championship, the track and field had an outstanding night. Boys placed 5th and the girls won. For the men, David Kraushar won the mile and 2 mile, and Finn Klambeck placed second in the 2 mile. The boys 4×800 earned 3rd place. Overall, many of the boy’s athletes broke personal records. For the ladies, Val Green was named SWOC field athlete of the year. She won high jump and placed second in discus. Kyra Koontz was named SWOC runner of the year, winning the 100m hurdles, and 100m and 200m dashes and placed 2nd in the long jump. The girls 4×800 relay earned 1st place and Sophie Mack placed 3rd in the 100m hurdles. The girls 4×400 relay also placed 3rd. And, with a new meet record, Maddy Iden won the 2 mile as well as the mile. If you any members of the track team, please congratulate them for their performance. The JV squad will compete at the home league tomorrow evening.

The softball team demolished Mercy, 13-0, at home in the first round of the playoffs, scoring 10 runs in the 3rd inning to put the game out of reach. Today, they will head off to Mason for the 2nd round of the playoffs. Good luck to them.   

For the baseball team, their season is over. They lost 13-2 on the road against Sycamore. Their season ends with a record of 10-16. Despite a losing record overall, they managed to go a respectable 8-4 in the conference.

The men’s Varsity team launched another shutout last night, beating Badin 5-0. Victories were by all who played- that’s right! Every tennis player beat Badin last night. The victory puts their final season record at 12-6. Good luck today at the Sectionals today.
