It was another shutout for the boys soccer team last night — this time they shut down conference contender Ross by a score of 3-0 at the field. Reid Benamanti, Sam Robinson, and Jake Kelly all scored the goals for Talawanda. They are 8-0-0 overall, and 6-0-0 in the SWOC at the midpoint of the season. 


It was a tough day for the varsity boys golf team on Tuesday.  Playing on the back nine of Harrison’s home golf course, we lost the match by a single stroke, 168-167.  The medalist for Harrison had 37, and the medalist for Talawanda was Charlie Faler with 38.  The conference championship now depends on which of the two teams plays better in the SWOC final tournament next Tuesday.  So hold onto your hats; it’s gonna be an exciting finish!  On a happier note, the JV squad handily defeated Harrison, 185-202.  The varsity record is now 11 & 1 overall, and 9 & 1 in the conference.  JV’s record is 12 & 1 overall, and 10 & 0 in the conference.  On Wednesday, both teams will play Badin at Twin Run.  Spectators are welcome!


And last night the Cross Country team had an outstanding meet in on a rainy, muddy course in Hamilton.  The girls team won the meet and scoring in the top 10 were: Maddy Iden in 2nd, Hannah Lippencott in 3rd, Libby Farmer in 4th, Eva Motta in 5th and Asya Walsh in 10th.  The boys team also placed first in the meet.  Top 10 placers were:  David Kraushar in 2nd, Kiefer Bell in 4th, Kye Tomayasu in 7th, Zeke Groom in 8th, Logan Murray in 9th, and Ben Farmer rounding out the top 10. 


The girls volleyball team fell to Ross last night in 4 sets on the road. Their record falls to 3-8 overall and 2-4 in the conference. 


And the girls soccer team won their 5th straight match on Tuesday night over Ross on the road by a score of 1-0. Their record is now 6-2-1 overall and 4-2-0 in the conference. 


Home games for today: Girls JV Tennis takes on Colerain at 4, and Volleyball has Princeton. Freshman at 4:30, JV at 5:45, and Varsity at 7.
