Congratulations to the cross country team for a great showing at the Eaton Invitational on Saturday.  The girls took first place and the boys third.  Five girls were in the top 16 (Lippincott – 1st, M Iden – 3rd, Farmer – 5th, Motta – 7th, L Iden – 16th) and three boys in the top 14 (Bell – 3rd, Murray – 10th, Bartel – 14th).   Setting personal records for the girls were Kylee Carver, Hannah Farnsworth, Hannah Hoblitzell, and Bella Walters.  Big improvements for the boys were made by Tesh Bali, Jacob Farmer, Harrison Cradduck, Jesse Faler, Noah Femiani, and Owen King.  The team will travel to  Hamilton on Tuesday and Saturday Night Lights IX on Saturday. 

On Saturday the freshmen football team defeated the Little Miami Panthers to a score of 14 to 12. The Brave were trailing 12-6 at the end of the fourth quarter. With 50 seconds left on the clock, the Brave had to convert on a 4th and 7. DJ Morris Williams connected with Dom Dowers on a tipped ball in the back of the end zone to tie it up. DJ punched it in on the conversion with a QB sneak to go ahead by 2. With 15 seconds remaining, Hayden Marcum intercepted the Panthers’ pass as they were driving to seal the deal. They improve to 1 and 1 on the season. Way to go frosh. 

The boys soccer team defeated Union County by a score of 6-3. Zeek Nates and Jasper Ralinovsky each had 2 goals in the game the boys team is now 2-5-1 overall and their next game is tomorrow at Ross.

And on Friday the football team defeated Eaton 44-14 to improve to 3-0 on the year it was a dominating performance for the Brave. Luke Richardson had an 80 yard kick return touchdown and Deondre Bothast-Revallee had 2 touchdowns and an interception. As I mentioned the Brave are now 3-0 on the year and play this Friday against New Richmond that game is a white out.

Home games for today: Girls varsity golf hosts Goshen at 4, and girls JV tennis hosts Fenwick at 4.

And that’s our broadcast on this day. I’m Luke West Poley. Thanks so much for watching, and have a great day.
