Girls Cross Country Heads To Ross Invitational This Weekend

Posted on: October 4, 2017

SETTING THE SCENE:  Nearly two weeks ago, the MHS girls cross country team finished third at the Harrison Invitation led by three Eagles who finished in the top ten. Following a midseason break, the Lady Eagles will head to the Ross Invitational.


A LOOK BACK:  Two weeks ago, three Lady Eagles finished in the top ten to lead the girls cross country team to a third place finish at the Harrison Invitational.  Olivia Loeffler was the first to cross the finish line for Milford with a time of 21.00, good for fourth place.  Loeffler was followed by Andrea Armstrong (6th, 21.08) and Emma Beck (8th, 21.23). Brooklyn George (32nd, 22.57); Hailey Steiner (33rd, 23.01), and Morgan Hills (34th, 23.02) crossed the finish together, followed closely by Brooke Stansell (36th, 23.21).

Oak Hills and Fairfield claimed first and second in the team points followed by Milford.  Megan John, a freshman from Oak Hills won the individual race with a time of 20.07.


THE WEEK AHEAD:  The Eagles, who have been idle since the Harrison Invite, will have had some rest before heading into the final regular season run at the Ross Invitational.  The Ross Invite is scheduled for Oct. 7 at Ross High School.  The varsity girls race is scheduled for a 9:00 am start; the girls open at 10:20 am.  Note that admission will be charged at the gate: $4 adults; $2 students/62+/veterans.


INSIDE THE ECC:  Olivia Loeffler is currently the top Eagle, ranked eighteenth in the ECC standings, joined by Andrea Armstrong (20th) in the top twenty.  Other Milford runners in the top third of the conference include Emma Beck (26th), Hailey Steiner (46th); Lily Fleshour (63rd); Brooke Stansell (t-64th), Gretchen Feldkamp (67th); and Morgan Hills (t-74th). 


POLL WATCH:  Week six of the Cincinnati Enquirer’s area coaches’ poll finds some movement among the top five, involving ECC programs.  Ursuline Academy and Mason held onto the top two spots, while Lakota East moved up to third.  Two ECC teams occupy fourth and fifth; Kings dropped from third to fourth, and Turpin held onto fifth.  Anderson fell to ninth from eighth, while Loveland entered at tenth tied with Sycamore.  Walnut Hills received two votes, and Milford is back in with one vote in week six.
