Posted on: October 3, 2016

SETTING THE SCENE: The Milford High School boys golf team, fresh off a third consecutive Eastern Cincinnati Conference Championship, will be out to qualify its entire squad for districts for a second straight season when the Eagles take to the Glenview Golf Course on Tuesday to compete in the Cincinnati East Sectionals. Last season, the Eagles narrowly missed out on a sectional title, falling one stroke short of Lakota East. Action at Glenview is set to get underway at 8:30 a.m., with the Eagles teeing off at 9:30 a.m.

 

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

  • Tuesday, Oct. 4, OHSAA Cincinnati East Sectional, Glenview GC, 8:00 a.m.
    • Tournament Field: Amelia, Anderson, Glen Este, Goshen, Kings, Lakota East, Lakota West, Little Miami, Loveland, Mason, Milford, Moeller, Sycamore, Turpin and Western Brown
    • Tournament Note: Division I Sectionals will qualify four (4) teams and the four (4) individual low scorers not on a qualifying team to the District Tournament at Beavercreek Golf Club, Thursday, October 13, 2016.

 

A LOOK BACK: Sept. 29 at ECC Tournament: On the strength of a second place finish at the Eastern Cincinnati Conference Tournament on Sept. 29, the Eagles won their third straight overall conference championship. The ECC Championship is determined by a combination of team’s finish in the ECC Preseason and Postseason Tournaments as well as victories in head-to-head dual meets against conference opponents. The Eagles won the preseason tourney and finished unbeaten in head-to-head duals during the regular season.

 

Senior Nathan Arnold had a great day on the Glenview Golf Course links, winning ECC Tournament medalist honors for the second straight year with a tournament-best rounds of 75. Arnold’s round was three strokes better than his nearest competitor. Sophomore Justin Horn earned a top-10 finish, tying for ninth with an 81, one stroke better than his senior teammate Aaron Wade.

 

Kings ended Thursday as the team tournament champions as they placed four golfers in the top-12 to nip the Eagles by three shots (320-323).

 

INSIDE THE ECC: On the strength of a second place finish at the Eastern Cincinnati Conference Tournament on Sept. 29, the Eagles won their third straight overall conference championship. The ECC Championship is determined by a combination of team’s finish in the ECC Preseason and Postseason Tournaments as well as victories in head-to-head dual meets against conference opponents. The Eagles won the preseason tourney and finished unbeaten in head-to-head duals during the regular season.

 

Individually, the Eagles feature three of the league’s top-ranked golfers in seniors Nathan Arnold (1st-37.1 average) and Aaron Wade (4th-38.2) and sophomore Justin Horn (7th-40.5).
