Posted on: May 15, 2017

SETTING THE SCENE:  The boys volleyball team will close out the regular season at Monroe this week.  The Eagles will soon learn their first opponent in the postseason, as the OHSBVA tournament schedule will be released this week as well.

 

A LOOK BACK:  Milford’s lone meeting last week was an exciting rematch with Princeton, who was ranked No. 7 in the OHSBVA poll and #9 in the Enquirer’s coaches’ poll.  In a match of back and forth, the Eagles took the first set 25-23, while the Vikings won the second, 25-16. Milford pulled ahead with a 26-24 win in the fourth; however, Princeton gained the momentum with a 25-20 win to force a fifth set, when they won 15-9.

 

THE WEEK AHEAD:  Milford will travel this week to Monroe High School for the last regular season match on the schedule.  Milford previously met Monroe at the Mason tri-match, when the Eagles came away with a 2-0 win.
