Boys Golf Starts ECC Dual Season Thursday Against Kings

Posted on: August 15, 2018

SETTING THE SCENE: The Milford High School boys golf team, off to an outstanding start to the 2018 season, are back on the links on Thursday when the Eagles host Kings at Deer Track Golf Course. The Eagles have been flying high thus far, not but not any higher than at last week’s Eastern Cincinnati Conference Preseason Tournament, an event won by Milford. The dual meet with Kings is one of four against ECC foes on the 2018 schedule for the Eagles.

 

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

  • Thursday, Aug. 16 vs. Kings, Deer Track Golf Course, 4:00 p.m.

 

A LOOK BACK: August 4 at Sycamore Invitational: Making his high school debut, freshman Adam Horn produced a day to remember as he carded a two-under par score of 70 to take runner-up honors at the Sycamore Invitational. In a field of 90 players, Horn, the younger son of head coach Andy Horn, trailed only Centerville senior A.J. Cherubini by a single stroke in the battle for tournament champion. As a team, the Eagles came in sixth in a stout 18-team field, finishing with a team score of 319.

 

August 7 at Anderson Invitational: Milford had a great day at Legendary Run Golf Course, trailing only two squads from Mason en route to a third place finish at the Anderson Invitational. For the day, the Eagles shot a team score of 317, with Mason taking the top-two slots with scores of 293 and 316. Senior Justin Horn became the second member of his family to lead the Eagles in as many events as he fired a team-best 75.

 

August 8 at ECC Preseason Tournament: Milford took its first step towards an Eastern Cincinnati Conference Championship as the Eagles won the preseason preview tournament at Glenview Golf Course. With four Eagles placing among the top-seven, Milford shot a 305 for the day, outdistancing runner-up Turpin by 15 strokes. For the day, Justin Horn shared top medalist honors with a score of 73. Adam Horn and Max Steinmetz were silver medalists with identical rounds of 77, while Tristin Messerschmidt grabbed a share of bronze medalist at 78.
