Girls Bowling Faces Goshen In Week Ahead

Posted on: January 15, 2017

SETTING THE SCENE:   With only Goshen on the schedule this week, the Lady Eagles, will get a bit of a break before heading back into conference play next week.  Following two wins over Turpin, Milford continues to share the lead in the ECC with Goshen, as both teams are 8-1 overall and 7-1 in the conference.


A LOOK BACK:  Milford continues to dominate their ECC schedule, and last week was no exception.  Milford defeated Turpin Tuesday, 2503-2075 in their first face off of the week.  Sophomore Jessica Norman shined in the win, with a season best 414 series and high game of 237, and MacKenzie Mason celebrated a season high game of 190 as well.  Jessica Haines (397), Alyna Hook (395) weren’t far behind Norman’s high series, and Lauren Shelton’s 149 in game two all helped the Eagles bring home the win.

Milford hosted Turpin for the second half of the series on Thursday, when Milford once again won with a score of 2042-1709.  Haines led the Eagles with a 327 series, and Mason finished just seven pins shy of Haines with a 320 series.  Also contributing to the Eagle victory: Shelton’s 273 series; and single games from Megan Cannon (140) and Norman (132).

At Saturday’s Lancer Baker Bash, the Lady Eagles opened strong with a win over #7 Mercy.  The win advanced the squad to the next round, where they faced Beavercreek, an historically strong team of bowlers.  Unfortunately Milford fell to Beavercreek, who went on to win the Lancer Baker Bash championship.


A LOOK AHEAD:  The Eagles get a break from conference play this week, with just two on the schedule with Goshen. 

  • Tuesday, 1/17:            Milford @ Goshen High School, Eastgate Lanes, 3:30 pm
  • Thursday, 1/19:          Goshen High School @ Milford, Eastgate Lanes, 3:30 pm


INSIDE THE ECC:  The Eagles remain tied with Glen Este at the top of the ECC standings, as both are 6-1 overall and 5-1 in conference play.  Anderson moved up in the standings, now at 4-2, while Turpin fell to 3-4 after losing both to Milford.  Kings and Loveland are tied at 1-5 and Walnut Hills fell to 0-5.

The Eagles are ranked second in the conference, and the team regular average improved again this week, to 805.5.  Jessica Norman joined Jessica Haines, Alyna Hook and Lauren Shelton of the Eagles who individually rank in top ten of the ECC.
