ECC Battle with West Clermont For Girls Bowling

Posted on: December 11, 2017

SETTING THE SCENE:  Milford’s girls bowling team will go into the next week with momentum following two dominating wins over conference foe Loveland.  The momentum will be needed, as the Lady Eagles will face the toughest test yet with the opportunity to take sole possession at the top of the ECC. 


A LOOK BACK:   A 328 series from Jessica Haines helped the Eagles to their first win of the week on 12/5, an 1806-1570 victory over Loveland. MacKenzie Mason wasn’t far behind with a 299 series, and four Eagles each contributed a game; Reaghan Kaylor (160), Megan Cannon (134), Jessica Norman (114) and Reagan Hodges (87).

Four of the Lady Eagles posted series over 300 on 12/6 as they dominated Loveland and completed the sweep, 2247-1668. Haines (349) and Norman (348) were joined by Cannon and Mason who both posted 333 series.  Kaylor (173) and Hodges (91) each added a game to help the Eagles maintain a share of the lead in the ECC.

As she had all week, Haines led the Eagles at the Holiday Classic on 12/9 with a three game total of 551 pins, with Mason adding a 545 in three games.  Kaylor posted Milford’s high game for the day (204) and a 503 series.  Norman had a three game series of 466, Hodges added a two game series of 273, and Cannon contributed in game one with a 123.


A LOOK AHEAD:  Milford will be tested as they meet with the new West Clermont (#10) for the first time this season.  The new school combined Amelia as well as Glen Este, whom the Eagles shared the ECC title with last year.  Unless the teams split the two match series, one program will take sole possession of the ECC.  Milford will also see McNicholas in nonconference action before yet another weekend tourney, this time the Wright State Tournament in Dayton.
