Girls Bowling To Face ECC Rival West Clermont

Posted on: December 10, 2018

THE UPCOMING DOCKET:  Conference rival West Clermont awaits Milford.  Since 2015, Milford has lost just five conference matches, all to West Clermont or the former Glen Este High School.  In 2016-17 Milford split the series and the conference championship with West Clermont, but in 2017-18 the Eagles swept the Wolves to claim the outright ECC title.  This week will present a challenge for Milford’s girls, as the West Clermont team is again strong, leads the league in overall average, and currently boasts the top three bowlers in the conference.

Monday, Dec. 10:       West Clermont High School @ Milford, Cherry Grove Lanes, 3:45 pm

Tuesday, Dec. 11:      Milford at West Clermont High School, Cherry Grove Lanes, 3:45 pm  

  

A LOOK BACK:

December 4 at Lakota West: Lakota West 1787, Milford 1783

By a margin of just five pins, Milford fell to Lakota West in a non-conference match up.  Reagan Hodges led the Eagles with a high series of 307, while Jessica Norman posted the team’s high game with a 153.  Reaghan Kaylor (238), Fallon Austin (220) and Clarissa Kester (216) each added two game series to the team total of 1783.

December 9 at Holiday Classic:  

 

In a crowded field of 32 teams from Ohio, Kentucky and even Tennessee, Milford’s girls team worked their way through the bracket to win the consolation round of the Holiday Classic.  Milord first defeated Sycamore, the ECC’s Loveland and Notre Dame Academy to reach the final, when the Eagles won over Harrison.  The consolation bracket win earned the Eagles a free entry to the 2019 Holiday Classic.  White House High School from Tennessee won the girls championship, while Centerville and Mercy McAuley finished second and third.
