Girls Tennis Opens ECC Play In Week Ahead

Posted on: August 21, 2017

SETTING THE SCENE:  The Lady Eagles are back in action, and will face two Eastern Cincinnati Conference opponents in the second week of the season.  Milford will head to Mount Notre Dame for a non-conference match, followed by a trip to the ECC’s Turpin.  The Eagles will end the week hosting Walnut Hills of the ECC.

 

A LOOK BACK:   Last week found the team starting the season at Bellbrook High School for the first round of the Ohio Tennis Coaches Association Southwest Ohio Division I 2017 Girls Team Tournament.  Milford exits the tournament after falling to Bellbrook, 5-0. 

The Eagles also took on Seven Hills in a non-conference date, who opened the season ranked #2 in the Division II Enquirer’s area coaches’ poll.  The Stingers took down the Eagles, 5-0

Individual results from both Bellbrook and Seven Hills will be posted when available.

  

A LOOK AHEAD:  The Lady Eagles face a challenging week ahead, as they face three programs who were ranked in the top ten of last week’s preseason coaches’ poll including Turpin of the ECC, and Mount Notre Dame, tied for fifth.  Milford will host their first home game with another conference foe, Walnut Hills (#10), to end the week. 

  • Monday, 8/21:             Milford @ Mount Notre Dame, 4:00 pm (Complex @ Amberley Green)
  • Tuesday, 8/22:             Milford @ Turpin HS, 4:00 pm

POLL WATCH:  Milford, who did not receive any votes in the preseason area coaches’ poll from the Cincinnati Enquirer, enters the poll in week one after receiving three votes.  Mason maintained the top spot, while Ursuline Academy moved to second and Sycamore fell to third.  St. Ursula held at fourth, yet Mount Notre Dame, previously ranked fifth, fell to ninth. The ECC’s Turpin moved up to fifth from sixth, and Loveland moved into a three-way tie for sixth with Lakota East and Lakota West. Walnut Hills follows in tenth.  Anderson received two votes, while Kings received one vote in the poll for week one.
