Girls Golf Seeks Return To Top Of ECC Standings In 2017

Posted on: August 7, 2017

SETTING THE SCENE: After a two-year absence, the three-time Eastern Cincinnati Conference girls golf champion Milford Eagles will tee off the new season looking to regain conference glory with a strong team of returnees. Second-year head coach Matt Thompson coached a senior-less squad in his initial campaign last fall and will look to build on a third place finish in last year’s ECC standings with five of his top-six players from last year all back in the fold.

 

THE UPCOMING DOCKET: A look at Milford’s schedule for the upcoming week:

  • Tuesday, Aug. 8 at Sycamore Invitational, Walden Ponds GC, 8:00 a.m.
  • Thursday, Aug. 10 at ECC Pre-season Tournament, Walden Ponds GC, 8:00 a.m.

 

A LOOK AT THE EAGLES: The Eagles enjoyed a solid campaign in 2016, finishing third in the ECC behind a largely inexperienced squad. That should pay dividends this year as four all-conference selections, including a pair of first teamers return to the line-up. The most experienced player is also the Eagles top returning scorer as 2016 All-ECC first team choice Casey Broxterman returns as the only senior on the MHS roster. Broxterman ranked sixth among all ECC players last year with a 46.6 average. She has joined on last year’s All-ECC first team by junior Bre Severns who also returns after coming off a 49.6 average last year. Megan Loux had a great freshman campaign, earning second team all-league honors, while junior Megan LaFrance was the Eagles’ honorable mention selection. Juniors Morgan Clawson and Angel Oliveros round out this year’s varsity roster.

 

POLL WATCH: In the preseason Division I coaches’ poll sponsored by the Cincinnati Enquirer, the Eagles are one of several squads receiving votes from the six voting coaches. Ursuline was the overwhelming favorite, gathering five of the six first place votes cast. McAuley was picked in the runner-up slot, with Sycamore (one first place vote) and St. Ursula sharing third and Mason rounding out the top-five. Loveland is the top-ranked ECC squad in ninth with Kings and Walnut Hills joining Milford in others receiving votes.
