Boys Bowling To Recognize Seniors This Week

Posted on: January 29, 2017

SETTING THE SCENE:  The Eagles, who entered last week’s coaches’ poll in ninth, will celebrate Noah Dolezal, Ricky Hallberg and Jeremiah Mitchell at Senior Night in the coming week.   Two conference matches with Kings await Milford, and the results could impact the final standings in the Eastern Cincinnati Conference.

 

A LOOK BACK:  The Eagles won the first of two over Walnut Hills, the first at home on Wed., 1/25.  The 2513-2205 victory was sealed with two bowlers with new season records.  Nathan McGeorge set two new personal bests this season with a high game of 254 and two game 474 high series, while Eugene Koczwara’s 213 in game two was a person best as well.  Other Eagles guiding the win included Josh Cooper with a 378 series, and games by Noah Dolezal (196) and Ricky Hallberg (153).

Milford’s squad completed the sweep of Walnut Hills on 1/26, this time 2477-2327.  Dolezal led the Eagles, averaging over 215 with a high series of 431.  Hallberg was the second leading scorer with a 379 series, followed by McGeorge (366), Cooper (312) and Koczwara (294).

 

A LOOK AHEAD:   The Eagles will face Kings this week, as the regular season winds down.  With two victories Milford would move up in the conference standings to at least tie with Kings for second place.  Should Glen Este lose both their matches with Anderson, the Eagles would enter a three way tie for first.  In addition, Milford will recognize seniors Noah Dolezal, Ricky Hallberg, and Jeremiah at the home match on Wed., 2/1 at 3:00 pm.

  • Tuesday, 1/31:            Milford @ Kings High School; Mason Bowl, 3:30 pm
  • Wednesday, 2/1:          Milford @ Walnut Hills High School, Madison Bowl, 3:30 pm

 

INSIDE THE ECC:  Glen Este and Kings, both 9-1, are still tied for first place in the ECC.  Anderson and Milford continue to follow, with conference records at 7-3.  Loveland (3-7), Turpin and Walnut Hills (2-7), and Withrow (0-10) round out the bottom of the ECC. 

Milford’s team ranks second in the ECC in regular average, which is now 878.8. As has been the case most of the season, Milford’s Cooper, Dolezal and McGeorge consistently rank near the top of the conference standings and are among the individual leaders in the ECC.

  • Josh Cooper:  high average (10th – 185.4); high game (t-4th – 259); high series (10th - 432)
  • Noah Dolezal:  high average (2nd – 199.2); high series (5th – 472)
  • Nathan McGeorge:  high average (4th – 195.9); high game (8th – 255); high series (4th – 474)

 

POLL WATCH:  In week ten of the Cincinnati Enquirer’s area coaches’ poll, Elder and Mason moved into first and second while Oak Hills, last week’s number one, fell to third.   LaSalle remained in fourth, but Colerain moved into fifth.  Glen Este of the ECC fell to ninth from eighth.  Milford, previously ranked ninth, fell out of the top ten but received fourteen votes.   The ECC’s Kings (9) and Anderson (1) joined Milford in receiving votes in week ten.
