Girls Tennis Squad Takes Win Streak Into Full Week

Posted on: September 18, 2016

SETTING THE SCENE:  On the heels of two consecutive team victories, Milford begins the march toward the postseason with a full and challenging schedule in the week ahead.  The girls tennis team recorded their first Eastern Cincinnati Conference victory over Glen Este, as well as a win over McNicholas.  The Eagles now prepare to head toward tournament play, including the Coaches Classic this week, and the Eastern Cincinnati Conference tournament the following week.


A LOOK BACK:  Milford defeated McNicholas, 3-2, on their home court.  Amanda Reinhart easily won over Hughes of McNicholas 6-0, 6-0.  With some changes in doubles pairings, Claire LaFrance and Emme Thomas won over Finn-Aguiliz 6-3, 6-1 at first doubles, and Leah Breuer-Emma Neal defeated Mirandi-Kohl at second doubles, 6-1, 6-1.  Other scores included Alvarez over Milford’s Mallory Faler at second singles 6-2, 6-4, and Geygan over Nicole Spencer playing third singles, 6-0, 6-0.

Milford won their first conference match, 5-0 over Glen Este.  Reinhart continued her dominance at first singles, sweeping Wittmeyer 6-0, 6-0.  Second and third doubles won, as Glen Este forfeited both matches.  LaFrance-Thomas defeated the first doubles team of Bice-Robinson 6-3, 6-2, and Milford’s pairing of Breuer-Neal won at second doubles over Clark-Ipinmoroti, 6-0, 6-0.


THE WEEK AHEAD:  Milford begins the march toward the postseason with a full and challenging schedule in the week ahead.  The Eagles open the week hosting the ECC’s Kings followed by conference foe and #7, Loveland.  And, a non-conference date with Cincinnati Country Day is sandwiched between the Greater Cincinnati Tennis Coach Association Tournament.

INSIDE THE ECC:  Turpin continues to lead the ECC rankings and improved to 6-0 in league play this week, and a 10-4 overall record.  Loveland follows at 3-1, while Walnut Hills moved up to third at 2-2.  Anderson and Kings are fourth, both with conference records of 2-3.  With the win over Glen Este, Milford (1-3) improves to sixth and Glen Este falls to 0-4.

Reinhart, (4-0, 10-1), who has yet to lose a conference game, maintained her hold on ECC players at first singles.  Faler is the sole occupant of third place in second singles this week; at third singles, Nicole Spencer is one of three tied for fourth.  Claire LaFrance-Emme Thomas are fifth in first doubles, while Leah Breuer-Emma Neal are one of nine doubles combinations who are 1-0 in conference play.


POLL WATCH:  Mason once again enters week six in the top position of the Cincinnati Enquirer area coaches’ poll.  However, as is now expected, Ursuline Academy and Sycamore’s fight for second and third continues, as Sycamore is now second and Ursuline Academy third. St. Ursula replaced the ECC’s Turpin in fourth followed by Mt. Notre Dame, and Turpin landed in sixth.  The ECC’s Loveland fell from seventh to eighth, and Walnut Hills dropped to tenth.  Though Anderson received four votes in week six, Milford and Kings fell out of the poll.
