The boys and girls cross country team had an awesome meet at home on Saturday.  Both teams won the Talawanda Brave Invitational!  The girls backed up their top-10 ranking in the state with a dominating win.  They placed 6 girls in the top 10.  Hannah Lippincott, Maddy Iden, and Libby Farmer took the first 3 places, Eva Motta was 5th, Lilly Iden 8th, and Zoe Moore was 10th.  Abby Bahlau, Hannah Hoblitzell, and Bella Walter also ran personal bests.  The boys squeaked out a 3 point win over Oak Hills to win the meet for the first time.  Kiefer Bell, Logan Murray, and Jens Bartel were 2nd-3rd and 4th.  The deciding points were scored by Daniel Sawdai and Benjamin Farmer when they passed Oak Hills’ 5th runner in the last few strides.  Both teams will travel to Miamisburg on Saturday.

And on Friday the football team had a scrimmage versus Roger Bacon, there was a great turnout to watch the Brave make their final adjustments before this Friday’s first home game versus Preble Shawnee we hope to see you all there and it is a black out.

And on Saturday the girls soccer team decimated Winton Woods by a score of 10-1 their record improves to 2-0 on the season. Ainsley Clark had a hat trick in that game they play next tomorrow at home versus Colerain.
