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 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.

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.
