Last weekend the Brave Swim & Dive teams hosted a tri-meet at Miami on Friday night.  Both the boys and girls teams came away with sweeps against Badin and Waynesville.  Then on Saturday the swim teams headed to Mason for a tri-meet.  The boys were victorious against both Mason and LaSalle, while a short-handed girls team fell to both Mason and Mercy McAuley.  At the Saturday meet the boys won 10 of the 11 events, which went a long way in helping them secure the win.  Individual events wins were turned in by Daniel Mullally, Ben Crowder, Blake Madden, Alex Carlson, and Maxx Gregg.  For the girls, although they did not win any individual events, Lucy Engle and Morgan Sly both had excellent performances in the 500 Free as they dropped multiple seconds off their previous season best times.  This weekend the Brave will be hosting the SWOC Championship meet at Miami.  Both the boys and the girls will be going for their 15th consecutive conference title.

The boys basketball team picked up a huge win over Edgewood on Tuesday night with the final being 49-46, the combo of Richter and Schlichter led the Brave in points with 12 each and Craig James grabbed 7 boards for the Brave on their way to an improvement to 5-11 on the year and 3-4 in the conference with their next game being Friday versus Mount Healthy, there has been a time change, so the opening tip will now be at 6:30 against the Owls.

The academic team swept Northwest last night in dominant fashion, 104-24 and 98-30 were the finals of the two matches, the Brave keep up their unbeaten record which now improves to 6-0 next Wednesday vs Mount Healthy.

The girls basketball squeaked out a 2 point victory last night over the Cincinnati Trailblazers, the final in that one was 34-32, Kylee Fears led the team with 22 points, followed by Myah Keene with 10. The girls improve to 8-11 on the year with their next matchup set for Monday versus the Hamilton Big Blue.

Good luck to the bowling teams who will travel to take on Northwest today, And that’s our broadcast on this Thursday, I’m Luke West Poley, thanks so much for watching, and if you set your mind free, maybe you’ll understand, we’ll see you tomorrow.
