And now for What’s The T and Patty G
Mr. Meece requested the entire school see the ending of the Purdue-Tennessee game last night with his Boilermakers moving on to the Elite 8 for the first time since 2000 — a huge win over the Vols last night in Louisville. And Purdue is a Final Four team in my bracket as well, so I’m happy. Virginia and Gonzaga also picked up wins in last night’s games, and the Michigan Wolverines fell to Texas Tech, so luckily they are done. 4 games on the March Madness schedule tonight, and my pick for tonight’s upset is the 3 seed Houston over the 2 seed Kentucky — that game tonight at 10pm.
The Varsity Baseball Team defeated Bishop Fenwick last night by a score of 7-6. It came down to the last pitch with a full count, bases loaded, and 2 outs when Brecken Hornsby made the play to get the Brave a W. Dylan Betz gets the win on the hill and Tyler Prater earned the save. The Baseball team will play against tonight at 5:00 against Lebanon at Lebanon High School.
The softball team lost to Franklin County last night at home by a score of 13-3. They fall to 1-1 on the season, and will play double header tomorrow at Finneytown, with Game 1 at 11 am.
And the men’s tennis team beat Fenwick last night on the road by a 4-1 margin. They improve to 2-2 on the year.
Home games for this weekend: The men’s tennis team takes on Walnut Hills at 4. And the JV baseball teams take on Lebanon at 5. Saturday, the JV softball takes on Franklin in a double-header starting at 11, and the JV baseball team takes on Loveland at noon.
And that’s our broadcast on this Friday. I’m Patrick Geshan. Thanks so much for watching, and have a great weekend!
