And now for World News, and then Patty G with sports.

The Cavs came out with an overtime 1 point win against Toronto last night in game 1 as you see there, so they now have a 1-0 series lead with Game 2 in a couple of days.  In the NHL last night, Washington and Winnipeg won their games, so they both have a 2-1 series lead.

Congratulations to the Girls 4×100 relay team of Kyra Koontz, Ainsley Clar, Sarah Curry, and Sophie Mack whose 52.14 seconds set a new school record last night! The old record of 52.3 was set 4 years ago in 2014. Overall, the boys finished a respectable 6 of 16 teams and the girls 7th at the Hamilton Blue Heaven Invitational. Full meet results and season bests can be seen on the board outside Coach Kelly’s room or online at Finishtiming.com.

The Varsity Baseball team lost to Kings last night by a score of 7-5 on the road. Their record falls to 9 and 12 overall. They play at Ross this afternoon in their final conference game, and if they win in any fashion tonight, they will clinch a share of the conference title.  So, good luck to them.

The JV Baseball team took a tough loss last night to CHCA 8-6 but still played a great game where Adam Crank hit another home run which starts a 2 game streak for the sophomore. He also had 2 triples and then they intentionally walked him. Adam will look to keep his streak going and get his team the win tonight against Ross, home at 5:00.

The Varsity tennis team beat Moeller so bad, the score was not reported. 

The men’s JV tennis team defeated Moeller in epic fashion last night, 3-2. This raises their overall record to 12-4. 4 of the 5 matches went to 3 sets with various tie breakers. Wins were posted by Zak Hamied, Ben Marks, John Klacik, Dylan Slager, Grant Monson, and Jaxson Gladwell. They are back in action Thursday afternoon at St. X.

And a message for girls interested in playing tennis in the fall: there will be a short informational meeting after school on Thursday in room 310. If you can’t make it, see Coach Thomas anytime. No prior tennis experience is required.

Home games for today: Boys Freshman and JV baseball against Ross at 5, Freshman at OCP and JV at the school. Also the Lacrosse team takes on Wilmington. JV at 5:30 and Varsity at 7:30 – I’ll have the call on YouTube. Go to the website or app and search Channel 85 productions.

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