And now for world news and Patty G with sports.

The girls golf team played in their SWOC tournament yesterday at Miami Whitewater. Their team score of 455 earned a second place conference finish behind Harrison.   Jada Tegge placed 6th in the tournament with an 18-hole score of 105.  Sophia Moore shot a 114, Hannah Heitger shot a 115, Alysse Aylor a 121,    Grace Clausen a 127, and Gabby Clausen a 129.  It is improvement  from the Brave’s 5th place conference finish last year — and second is pretty good for just their second year as a team. 

The JV boys golf team is still rolling along in high gear, defeating Badin 203-213 on Wednesday at Hueston Woods.  This brings their record to 14 & 1 (finishing undefeated in the conference).  Their final match of the season will be on Thursday, at Eaton.  On a fun note, the three varsity seniors took on three varsity underclassmen in a match play scramble on Wednesday afternoon.  Golf program alumni Charlie Winkler and Vincent Whitehead caddied for the seniors, but even so, the underclassmen won by a hole. The evening ending with a celebration of  seniors,  so congrats to Trey Hubbard, myself, and Nick Vandenberg!

And in other results last night, the Varsity Field Hockey team fell to Oakwood by a score of 7-1. 

Good luck to the Girls Tennis team who plays in THEIR SWOC tournament today on the Miami Tennis Courts. Home games for today:  Boys JV and Varsity Soccer take on Harrison, JV at 5 and Varsity 7.  

And that’s our broadcast on this Thursday. I’m Patrick Geshan. Thank you so much for watching — and we’ll see you tomorrow.
