Posted on: September 16, 2018

SETTING THE SCENE: With just over a week to go until they battle for an Eastern Cincinnati Conference Championship, the Milford High boys golf team will embark on a three-match dual week in the days ahead. The Eagles have won five of their seven dual matches so far this fall, including three of four against ECC foes. This week features events against Lebanon (Monday), Walnut Hills (Tuesday) and Anderson (Thursday). The 2018 ECC Championship will be contested at the Glenview Golf Course on Thursday, Sept. 27.

 

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

  • Monday, Sept. 17 vs. Lebanon, Oasis Golf Club, 4:00 p.m.
  • Tuesday, Sept. 18 vs. Walnut Hills, Deer Track Golf Course, 4:00 p.m.
  • Thursday, Sept. 20 at Anderson, Legendary Run Golf Course, 4:00 p.m.

 

A LOOK BACK: Sept. 10 at Alter Invitational: Playing against some of the top squads from the Cincinnati and Dayton areas, Milford finished a respectable seventh at the Alter Invitational, hosted by the Miami Valley Golf Club. The Eagles finished with a team total of 329, seven shots behind Vandalia-Butler. Centerville (305) took the team title by just one stroke over Mason. Freshman Adam Horn was the top finisher for Milford, tying for eighth with a score of 76.

 

Sept. 11 vs. McNicholas: Milford returned to Deer Track for the first of two straight matches, bettering McNicholas by a 151-180 score. Youngsters Adam Horn, a freshman and Cole Watson, a sophomore, shared medalist honors with rounds of 37. Teammates Max Steinmetz (38), Justin Horn (39) and Taylor Rehmer (39) were also part of the under-40 club for the day.

 

Sept. 12 vs. Loveland: Behind rounds of 34 from Justin Horn and 35 from Cole Watson, Milford shot a season-best 147 to knock off Loveland by a convincing 14-stroke margin at Deer Track. Adam Horn also finished under 40 with a tally of 38 for the day.

 

Sept. 15 at Springboro Invitational: The Eagles uncharacteristically struggled on the course at the Heatherwood Golf Club, finishing a disappointing 13th in an 18-team field. Senior Justin Horn paced Milford, tying for 22nd place overall with an 80.
