ADDI: Alright we have a lot to talk about from last night so we are gonna get right into it.

Starting with softball, they took on Harrison last night in a key conference match. A very close game, the girls were able to pull out the 12-11 win in an extra inning. That final score was made possible in that last inning by Bailey Sawyers and Quinn Frieden who both got on base to be driven in with a hit by Kaylee Griffin. Here is a video of Friedens game winning run provided to us by Coach Davie. **cut to softball video** Both Sawyers and Frieden were named co-players of the game for their contributions. Great work ladies, wait to clutch that win.

As for baseball, they also found themselves in a conference matchup against Harrison last night. A very close score throughout the entire game as both teams were tied with one run each up until the extra eighth inning where Talawanda gave up 8 runs to the Wildcats. That game ended in a 9-1 loss for the brave.

On a lighter note, Boy’s tennis beat Northwest, a conference opponent, by a score of 4-1. Their overall record improves to 2-0!  Wins were posted by Milo Flaspohler, Ari DelVecchio, Ryan Hohn, Connor Pulaski, and Andy Page.

Finally our track team hit the road to the Eaton Relays Meet. Both the girls and boys teams took second place. A couple of our athletes took home first place. These events were the Boys distance medley consisting of Jesse Troy, Victor Li, Bryson Fears, and Jonah femiani. The Boys 4×1 relay consisting of Jason Frank, Ben Brown, Jake Barkhuzien and Colin Obrien. The Pole vault duo of Olivia Andrews and Maggie Staton. The Girls Distance Medley of Clara Cradduck, Adriana Luking, Ellery Duvall, and Lucia Rodbro. And finally The girls 4×4 relay of Madi Abney, Adriana Luking, Lucia Robro, and Ava Thacker.

That’s all from last night now let’s talk about what we have going on tonight.

Softball will be taking on a double header against northwest. Those games will be at 4:30 and 6
