And the girls tennis SWOC tournament had to be postponed yesterday during the rain. The tournament resumes at 4pm on Monday at the miami Tennis Complex.

The JV boys golf team took the road on Thursday for their final match of the season.  Although the rain held off, it was breezy and chilly, and the perfect opportunity to try out the new team jackets that the guys earned through fundraisers!  The Braves topped off their season by defeating Eaton,181 to 231, giving them an overall record of 15 & 1.

It is a Friday and so just 1 home game to tell you about today: The Football team will take on Harrison tonight at the Field. The Wildcats have struggled as of late , but  are coming off a 42-35 win over Edgewood last week. They are 2-3 on the season. Kickoff is tonight at the field at 7. It will be a Jersey Out. Just don’t wear green. 

And that’s our broadcast on this Friday. I’m Patrick Geshan. Thank you so much for watching — and have a great weekend.
