Well, believe it or not with the weather yesterday, the baseball team was able to fit in their game against Grosse Pointe, Michigan — but no umpires showed up. They still played, using the coaches as umpires — so it wasn’t counted as an official game, therefore we don’t have a score to report to you.

And the girls’ softball game was canceled yesterday. I want you to pay attention to this picture next to me, on Tuesday afternoons, I volunteer at Kramer, which is about 2 miles south of my house as the crow flies. I came home around 4 right when this storm was hitting. At Kramer, there was none of this stuff, but at my house 2 miles away there was golf ball sized hail. And that’ s a hailstone next to a golf ball, so kind of amazing that some of the teams were able to get matches in yesterday.

Homes games for today: Boys’ Varsity Tennis face Monroe at 4:00 pm. Freshman and JV Boys’ Baseball take on St. X at 5:00, and Boys’ Lacrosse face off against Madeira at 6:00 pm.

That’s our broadcast on this Wednesday. I’m Patrick Geshan, thanks so much for watching and we’ll see you tomorrow.

The Talawanda track team had a very successful showing at their first meet of the season last Thursday at Edgewood. Despite the freezing temperatures and ice cold rain, the runners, jumpers, and throwers placed at the top in many events. For the boys, David Kraushar placed in 3rd in the mile and his 4×800 team placed 5th with the runners Jens Bartel, Daniel Sawdai, Quinn Kissell, and Ben Farmer. Also placing was Sean Mondello in Discus, Justin Browning in the 110 hurdles, and Andrew Belec in the 400. Both boys 4×200 relays placed at the meet as well.

For the girls’ team, many runners earn points. Placing first in their events was Val Green in the Discus; Kyra Koontz in the long jump and the 100m dash. She also placed 2nd in the 100 hurdles. The girls’ relay team of Kyra, Ashley Clark, Sophie Mack, and Amanda Bowling also placed first in the 4×100 and 4th in the 4×200. Earning 2nd place in the 4×800 relay was the team of Libby Farmer, Maddy Iden, Zoe Moore, and Ashley Baxter. Maddy and Libby both went on to place in their mile and 800 as well. Jenna Tegge earned 4th in the Discus, Ashley Baxter and Asya Walsh both placed in the mile, Sophie Mack scored in the 100 hurdles, and rounding out the points for the girls was Natalie Weneck in the 400.  Everyone is encouraged to come to the home meet on Thursday. It starts at 4:30.

On Saturday, the baseball team dropped their second game of the year to Colerain by a score of 13-1. They drop to 0-2 on the season, and their next game is Wednesday at St. X. The softball team’s games were canceled against Finneytown last weekend.

And Villanova beat Michigan last night in the NCAA Basketball Championship by a score of 79 to 62 to win their second national championship in the past 3 years, and their 3rd in program history. According to ESPN’s bracket challenge, 16.3% of participants predicted the Wildcats to win it all.
