Attention all seniors, your senior pictures are due to Mr. Zimmerman by March 1st.  If you still haven’t bought a yearbook, please go to www.jostens.com to order yours today.

And now for the week ahead

Seniors- The Talawanda Local Scholarship and The Oxford Community Scholarship Books are both now available. They have been sent to your school email, posted on our website and are also available in the guidance office. Transcripts for these scholarships do not need to be official so you will be given one copy of your transcript and you can duplicate as needed. All applications are due back to guidance Wednesday, February 20th by the end of school. The Oxford Community Foundation and the Talawanda local have different requirements so please read directions carefully. See Mrs.Roy in the guidance office with any questions.

Well, Talawanda, we may have forgotten about the horrible tragedy that took place here last week. We’re speaking of Patty G’s kidnapping. And now for the dramatic conclusion.

Well I don’t remember much from the past week, but I am glad there was an old TV in that storage closet so I could watch the game on it yesterday — we’ll have more on that in a moment with NFL Analyst Ben Eisenbraun.

So we saw one dynasty win last night, but the dynasty that is Talawanda Swimming and Diving added a new entry into their history books Saturday night. Both the boys and girls swim and dive teams captured their 13th straight league championship Saturday night. The SWOC has been in existence for seven years, and Talawanda has been the only team to ever win a swim and dive championship. That’s called domination folks. 18 of 24 events at the meet were won by Talawanda swimmers or divers. Mercy Patterson and Ben Crowder headlined the meet by both winning two events and each was named SWOC Athlete of the Year. The team also set five conference records at the meet — two by Mercy, one by Ben, one by Sam Hool in diving, and one by the 200 Free Relay team of Ben Crowder, Blake Madden, John Anzano, and Rhyan Meyers. Other individual event winners were Hannah Lippincott, Addie Lehman, Kenna Mondello, Rhyan Meyers, Maxx Gregg, John Anznao, and Blake Madden. Next up is the state tournament. The Sectional Swim meets are this weekend where the Brave will look to qualify many to the District Meet.

The boy’s basketball team went 0-2 this weekend with a 76-41 loss to Mt. Healthy on Friday and a 77-57 drop to Colerain Saturday. Their record falls to 1-17 overall and 0-9 in the SWOC.

The girl’s basketball team lost to Edgewood by a 54-38 tally on Saturday. Their record is 1-18 overall and 0-10 in the SWOC. They actually picked up their first win at Eaton last Tuesday, so congratulations to them.

So let’s bring in Brave TV NFL Analyst Ben Eisenbraun for his take on last night’s Super Bowl, and Ben, everyone knows I was happy with the result — what’s your take?

And that’s our broadcast on this Monday. I’m not Patrick Geshan. Thanks so much for watching and have a great day.
