The baseball team had an eventful weekend playing Harrison Friday and beating them by a score of 23-7. The Brave recorded 20 hits against the Wildcats but the highlight of the weekend was Saturday night when the Baseball team went down the road to McKee Field for the Reds High School Showcase. The Brave went against Colerain and won by a score of 3-2 with Ian Heiman threw a 6 inning no hitter. Josh Hartman came in clutch in the bottom of the 6th when he hit a single that scored the winning runs for the Brave. Ian Heiman won MVP of the game earning him an engraved baseball bat and a trip to an upcoming Red’s game where he’ll be announced, Congrats Ian

The lacrosse team fell to Anderson at home by a 16-3 score on Saturday. Tom Winkler had 2 goals in the game. The lacrosse team’s next game will be Tuesday at Winton Woods.

Home games for today:  JV Softball hosts Mt. Healthy at 5 and Freshman Baseball hosts Roger Bacon at 5.

So it was a crazy day in sports yesterday. The Blue Jackets beat the Tampa Bay Lightning to astoundingly take a 3-0 first round series lead over the NHL’s best team, and yesterday at the masters:

So the Tiger comeback story is super inspiring and emotional to a lot of people and not even golf fans. It showed everyone that you can come back from rock bottom to be at the top again. And yesterday after his round, Tiger said on CBS he was “prodding” through the golf course yesterday. Well, it reminds me of the position were in now at this school. 4 days to go until the long break that gives us a little taste of summer and what’s to come. It seems so far away, and yet it isn’t. Yes, there are a lot of expectations and tests, and everything else. But if we just prod through the next 4 days and finish, like Tiger did, the long awaited break will come.

And that’s our broadcast on this Monday.  I’m Patrick Geshan. Thanks for watching, and have a great day.
