INSIDE THE NUMBERS:  With Eastern Cincinnati Conference league games yet to be played, the fight for the ECC is wide open.  Following just four contests, a number of Eagles are already leaders in the EEC top ten. 

  • Attacks:  Erika Sharp (2nd), Morgan Whitaker (3rd)
  • Serves: Emily Morgan (1st), Abby Thierauf (t-2nd), Molly Buck (t-4th), Julia Gill (t-7th), Sharp (t-7th)
  • Assists:  Thierauf (2nd), Morgan (8th)
  • Digs:  Morgan (2nd)
  • Blocks:  Sharp (t-6th), Whitaker (t-10th)

 

POLL WATCH: The top five programs remained unchanged in the area coaches’ poll for week two, as Ursuline Academy, Mt. Notre Dame, Mercy McAuley, Mason and St. Ursula held at their rankings from week one.  The ECC’s Loveland (seventh) and Turpin (ninth) held as well, and Anderson garnered enough votes to enter back into the poll at tenth.  The remaining ECC teams all received votes in the poll for week two: Milford (11), West Clermont (12), Kings (11) and Walnut Hills (11), and Withrow (3).  Find the most recent poll HERE.
