The 2016 All-Eastern Cincinnati Conference announced the selections for girls bowling all-conference teams and six girls bowling team members received honors.  Senior Sarah Schmidtgesling is joined by sophomore Jessica Haines and junior Alyna Hook as first team all-conference selections, while sophomore MacKenzie Mason and junior Lauren Shelton were named to the second team.  Freshman Jessica Norman received honorable mention.

Jessica Haines ended her sophomore season by leading the Eagles, as she had for a good chunk of the year, by placing 24th in the final standings at the OSHAA Division I District Bowling championship.  Bowling in all three games, Haines averaged a 194 and a high series of 583.  At the Eastern Cincinnati Conference/Southwest Ohio Conference Tournament, Haines set the new Milford girls record for a single game of 269, and a new record for a three game high series of 591, where she also earned first team all-tournament honors.  She ended the year with the seventh highest average in the ECC (172), tied for second for high game (269), and ninth for high series (392).

Hook was named first team All-ECC, an honor she received in 2015 as well.  The junior rolled a series of 531 at the District tournament, where she placed 53rd of the over 100 qualifiers who bowled all three games.  Hook ended the year in the top ten of the ECC conference leaders, including: high average (6th – 173); high game (7th - 233); and high series (5th - 429).

Schmidtgesling received all-conference honors for the third consecutive year; she was named first team in 2015 and second team in 2014.  Schmidtgesling’s senior season included leading the Eagles at the OSHAA Sectionals, with a high series of 525 and a 175 average on the day, as well as a high game of 212 in a senior night win over Loveland.  She finished in or near the top ten for all ECC stats, including high average (11th – 158); high game (t-9th – 224); and high series (10th – 376)

Second team selection Mason’s game improved as the season progressed.  At the OSHAA District tournament she posted Milford’s high game of 202 and finished with a 353 series in two games.  The sophomore ended her season ranked 18th in high average (133) and tied for 22nd for high series (320) in the ECC.

Lauren Shelton’s junior season ended with a 310 series at the District Tournament; she led the Eagles with a 196 high game in a January road win over Withrow as well.  Following the end of the regular season, Shelton ranked 13th for high average (138); 12th for high game (208); and 16th for high series (346).

Honorable mention recipient Norman bowled in thirteen varsity matches, and recorded her personal high game of 160 at the Eastern Cincinnati/Southwest Ohio Conference tournament.  She ends the year with a 122 average.

The Milford girls finished the season 15-3 overall and 12-2 in the Eastern Cincinnati Conference final standings.  The team finished in second place for the 2016 season, as they did in 2015 as well.  The team placed sixth in the OHSAA Sectional Bowling Tournament to earn a trip to the Districts, where they placed 19th.

In addition to setting a new high team average score of 2115, the team set new records for game average (749) and baker game average (154) – all record highs since at least the 2004 season.  The ladies placed 6th at the Sectional
