Girls Basketball Players Earn ECC, District Honors

Posted on: March 7, 2017

The Milford High School girls basketball team is represented on the All-Eastern Cincinnati Conference teams this season by four players, headlined by senior point guard Tori Gilman who earned a berth on the league’s first team. In addition, Gilman earned second team All-City honors as voted on by the District 16 coaches.

 

In addition to Gilman, seniors Hannah Thierauf and Hayden White were tabbed to the All-ECC second team, while fellow senior Katelyn Rheude was Milford’s honorable mention choice for this year. The Eagles finished this season with an 8-15 final record.

 

Gilman was the floor general for the Eagles this winter, pacing the squad in scoring (13.7), assists (76), steals (77) and field goal percentage (.438). She was also among the league’s top players in each category, including pacing the league in steals for the second straight season. Gilman started the year with a bang, scoring a career-high 29 points in the season-opener against Princeton and finished with at least four steals in 11 of 23 games.

 

In her first season as a full-time varsity player, Thierauf placed second on the Eagles in scoring at 10.2 points per game, while making a team-leading 23 three-pointers. Thierauf exploded for a career-high 22 points in an early season win over Winton Woods and finished with double figure scoring in 12 games.

 

White was a beast on the boards this year for the Eagles, pacing the squad in rebounds for the second straight year, this time with a career-high 7.5 per game. She twice grabbed a season-best 14 rebounds in a game and reached double figures in three straight games at one point. White’s best offensive game came at Glen Este when she scored 11 points.

 

After playing sparingly last season, Rheude was an important cog in the Eagles’ line-up, starting all but one game and averaging over seven points and five rebounds per game. Rheude enjoyed the best game of her career in an upset of eventual ECC co-champions Kings when she posted a 20-point, 11-rebound double-double. She added a second double-double (10 points, 12 rebounds) against the Knights later in the season.
