And now for the Week in Review

And now for Student of the Week and Patty G

Well as you just heard, the Southwest Ohio District Swimming Championships were held this weekend, where both the boys and girls teams represented Talawanda very well at the meet. Out of 44 teams, the boys finished 11th and out of 49 teams, the girls finished 20th The meets were highlighted by the 7th place finish of the boys 200 medley relay team of John Anzano, Blake Madden, Ben Crowder, and Ryan Meyers and the 9th place finish of Mercy Patterson in the 100 Back.  Both this relay and Mercy have qualified to swim at the Ohio High School State Championships this weekend in Canton, OH.  To qualify to this meet you must be one of the 24 fastest swimmers in your event so it is truly an accomplishment just qualifying.  The boy’s relay and Mercy will be joining Sam Hool at the state meet, who qualified last week in the 1 Meter Diving event.  Congratulations to the swim and dive teams for all their accomplishments this year and for sending SIX total kids to the state meet!

The hockey team fell to Thomas Worthington on Friday night at the Dublin Chiller by a score of 5-1. Sam Morrish had the goal for Talawanda in the game. So the hockey team’s season is over in the first round of the state playoffs, so we congratulate the hockey team and their seniors on a great season. 

The boy’s basketball team fell to Ross on Senior Night Friday by a score of 79-32. Senior David Kraushar led Talawanda with 9 points and John Richter had 6. Talawanda finishes off the regular season with a 1-21 overall record, they’ll play either Moeller or Middletown in the postseason next Tuesday. And a special congratulations to boys basketball seniors Tristan Fontaine, Ryan Henes, Tommy Winkler, David Kraushar, and John Beckett on playing in their final home game Friday.    

There are no home games for today. And that’s our broadcast on this Tuesday. I’m Patrick Geshan. Thanks so much for watching and have a day Talawanda.
