DTMA Bots Competition

The Roundup takes an expansive view of what constitutes a sport, especially when Wyoming kids are involved.  Therefore we bring you the following:

The Wyoming High School Robotics Club competed at the DTMA Bots Competition which was held at Scarlet Oaks on April 16th.  Led by advisors Mr. Fitzgerald and Mr. DeWitt, junior Daniel Sachs, senior Aaron Deutsch and freshman Joey Gallick entered their robot, Swiss Cheese, after months of design and construction. 
Swiss Cheese had a clearly superior design, but electrical issues led to a less than optimal performance.  Expect to see great things from the Robotics Club next fall!

Jon Edgington, WHS '07 - Miami-Western Michigan game

The Roundup was fortunate enough to take in the Miami-Western Michigan baseball game in Oxford yesterday and see Jon Edgington, WHS '07 play.

Jon was 1-3 and scored a run in Miami's exciting 8-7 come from behind win.  Game recap here.

Of course, not all fans were riveted to the action:

Hard as it may be to believe for those of us who watched him when he played for Wyoming, Jon's a senior.  If you want to catch him before he's done, you need to make it to Oxford by May 15th. Schedule here.  It's a very nice park, the parking is easy (head down Tallawanda until you see a sign directing you to take a right to McKie Field), and Oxford is beautiful in the spring.

He will also make one more appearance in town, playing at UC on May 10th at 6:30.  Jon will need to get used to being on UC's campus - he'll be attending med school there starting in August.

Spring Football

I'm watching the University of Michigan spring football game on the Big 10 Network (439 on Dish Network).  (I might have a problem.)

WHS Class of '10 member Jibreel Black is starting at defensive end.  They're using a first team-second team format - the first team O plays the first team D and then after a change in possession the second team O goes against the second team D - so Jibreel plays every other series.  He's #55.

The announcers are talking about the new coaching staff switching from a 3-4 scheme on defense to a 4-3.  That sounds like good news for Jibreel.

The Big 10 Network is replaying the game overnight tonight at 1 AM and 6 AM if you want to check on Jibreel.

Tomorrow night at 7 the Big Ten Network shows Indiana's spring game.  Jibreel's older brother Larry plays for IU and assuming he's healthy Larry should be playing in that game.


Softball slams Mariemont

The softball team defeated Mariemont yesterday in five innings by the score of 14-0.
