The boys bowling team beat Cincinnati Christian last night by a score of 2617 to 2276.     Aiden Linksch led Talawanda with a series score of 450 followed by Jarrett White who bowled a 416 series. The girls bowling team fell to Cincinnati Christian 2121 to 1797.  Grace Steigerwald  had a 390 and Baylee Essert had a 282.  The bowling team’s senior night will be this Monday against Middletown at Oxford Lanes.

Earlier this week the Sectional Diving Tournaments were held. On Tuesday night, Sam Hool won the Cincinnati Sectional Diving meet while Sean Mondello placed second. Both advanced to the District Diving Tounament next week where Sam will be seeded first and Sean will be seeded third. On Wednesday night, the girls Sectional Diving tournaments were held. Olivia Baker placed third and Addie Lehman placed fifth. Olivia had a career best performance to close out her career on the diving board, but just narrowly missed advancing to districts. Tonight, the boys swim team will compete at their Sectional Swim Meet, while tomorrow the girls swim team will compete at their Sectional Swim Meet. Best of luck to both teams as they look to make a strong showing in this year’s state tournament.

Home games for this weekend: The boys basketball team hosts Northwest tonight: Freshman at 4:30, JV at 6, and Varsity at 7:30. That game will be livestreamed on Channel 85. Also, tomorrow afternoon is the girls basketball senior night against Ross. JV at 1 and Varsity at 2:30 in the gym tomorrow, and that game will be livestreamed on Channel 85 as well.

And we wish best of luck to the hockey team who plays Alter tomorrow at 7pm up at South Metro Sports in game 1 of their postseason tournament.   If they win that, they’ll play the winner of St. X and Beavercreek at 3:30 Sunday at South Metro.

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