And now for world news and Patty G with sports.

Three-peat complete! The boys soccer team has won back-to-back-to-back SWOC championships for the first time in team history after an 8-1 rout of Mt. Healthy on the road. Sam Robinson and Ethan Kent each had 2 goals in the game. Ben Marks allowed just 1 goal in net and had 2 saves. The Braves have allowed just 5 goals against in the past 4 games. So congratulations to the boys soccer team!

Also, congratulations to Austin Goerss for making it into a five-way playoff at sectionals, hoping to grab one of two remaining spots for the district tournament.  Though he didn’t nail down a spot this year, there are high hopes for his chances next season!  Here he is on the first playoff hole, with his teammates behind him all the way. 

Home games for today: Boys JV and Varsity Soccer take on Edgewood. JV at 5 and Varsity at 7. Tonight is fan appreciation night at the field, and all students get in free with their student ID. The student’s section theme for tonight is a black out as well, so hope to see a big crowd there. The game will be live streamed as well starting at 7 on the Brave TV YouTube Channel. 

And that’s our broadcast on this Thursday. I’m Patrick Geshan. Thank you so much for watching — and have a great day.

The JV boys golf team is still rolling along in high gear, defeating Badin 203-213 on Wednesday at Hueston Woods.  This brings their record to 14 & 1 (finishing undefeated in the conference).  Their final match of the season will be on Thursday, at Eaton.  On a fun note, the three varsity seniors took on three varsity underclassmen in a match play scramble on Wednesday afternoon.  Golf program alumni Charlie Winkler and Vincent Whitehead caddied for the seniors, but even so, the underclassmen won by a hole. The evening ending with a celebration of  seniors,  so congrats to Trey Hubbard, myself, and Nick Vandenberg!

Tuesday was a rough day for the variety boys golf team at the SWOC tournament.  They came up just short of victory, falling to conference champions Harrison. But congrats to the Braves for putting together a great 12 & 1 match record this year!  Charlie Faler and Austin Goerss were named to first team all-conference;  Trey Hubbard and myself were selected to second team;  Nick Vandenberg made honorable mention;  and Dylan Slager received the Sportsmanship Award.   So the golf senior night is tonight at Hueston Woods — and originally we were supposed to play Badin, but they had to cancel after a scheduling error so instead there will be an intersquad scramble between the varsity seniors and the underclassmen. But that is good news because the crowd can be noisier. Specators are still welcome as we honor the three seniors on the team tonight. Tee time is 3:50 at Hueston Woods and the students section theme for tonight is a jersey out.  

The boys soccer team got back to their winning ways with a 2-1 win over Little Miami last night at home. The Braves improve to 7-0-0 in the SWOC an are 9-1-0 overall. Quinn Flaspohler scored the two goals in the game.

The girls soccer team fell to Little Miami in a slim 1-0 game last night. Their record goes to 6-3-1 overall and 4-3-0 in the SWOC. 

The girls volleyball team fell to Little Miami in straight sets last night on the road. Their record falls to 4-9 overall, and 2-5 in the SWOC.

And big news coming out of Field Hockey. The Varsity team fell 3-1 last night to Indian Hill on the road with Inji Walsh scoring the Braves Goal, but the JV Team beat the Indians 1-0 on a goal by Emma Schrimper; so congratulations to the JV Field Hockey team with their big win last night. And on Thursday, after school, the field hockey team will be selling slices of LaRosa’s cheese pizza for $2.00 a slice.  Bring exact money, two 1 dollar bills to either of the doors by the main office, or by the cafeteria to get your $2.00 slice.  They look forward to seeing you on Thursday after school!

Tyler Engelhard had 5 receptions for 21 yards and Terrell Wills rushed for 52. Dalton Norris also had a safety in the game. The Braves record falls to 2-3 overall, 0-1 in the SWOC and this week will host Harrison. 

 

On Saturday, the boys soccer team fell 3-1 to Moeller on the road, the number 2 team in the state.

Good morning, Talawanda! Today is Friday September 21th, 2018

 

Reminder to all students grades 9-12, the College Admissions Panel is this coming Tuesday, September 25th at 5:30 in the PAC.

 

Attention to all girls interested in playing basketball this year:  An open gym will be held this Sunday from 4-5:30 at the middle school.  This is a location change.

 

If you need a dress for homecoming please see your school counselor.

 

THS students, Nosebleed will be playing in the THS gym from 11-11:30 Homecoming night immediately following the dance.  We hope you can be there to hear some awesome music!  See Davis Byrd or Ben Nachowitz if you want to buy a Nosebleed shirt.

 

As for Homecoming activities, the football game is today, and the dance is tomorrow.  If you have any questions, please see Ms. Mann, Mrs. Sammons, or any football coaches.

 

And now for some extreme homecoming tips.

 

Birthdays for today: Lillian Spencer turns 18. Also happy birthday to Mrs. Richter.

 

And now for world news and Patty G with sports.

 

There are no scores to report from yesterday because every team participated in the homecoming parade. It was a lot of fun to see everyone there and hope you all had fun. We all know Mr. Pasquale here did. 

 

So the homecoming celebration shifts to the gridiron tonight when our Braves take on Little Miami. It is the first conference game of the year for Talawanda. The Panthers are coming off a 41-0 shutout win of Mount Healthy at home last week. They will march into Talawanda Territory with a 4-0 record. Kickoff is tonight at the field at 7, but be sure to show up early and see the crowning of the homecoming king and queen around 6:40. It is a white out. 

 

And that’s our broadcast on this Friday. I’m Patrick Geshan. Have a safe and fun homecoming weekend. I’ll see you all tonight and tomorrow. Thanks so much for watching, and have a great weekend.
