Girls Volleyball Opens The Week Hosting West Clermont For First Ever Meeting

Posted on: September 4, 2017

SETTING THE SCENE:  Milford’s girls volleyball team looks to get back on track as they return to the home court for two of three in the coming week.  The ladies will host West Clermont followed by a road game at Turpin, before closing the week at home with Western Brown. The road was not kind to the Lady Eagles last week, and they fell to a 2-4 overall record following three away dates. 

 

A LOOK BACK:  Milford headed to Anderson on Tues., Aug. 29 for their first ECC match of the season. The Lady Eagles lost the first set 25-11, and dropped the second with a close score of 25-23. Anderson took a 25-13 win of the third set, and the Eagles fell 3-0 to the #8 ranked Redskins.

The second match of the week was at #7 ranked Loveland on Thurs., Aug. 31.  Loveland captured the first two sets 25-15, and 25-12. Milford nearly rebounded to take the third, but fell 25-19 and Loveland collected the conference win.

Saturday found Milford at Oak Hills, where the Highlanders defeated the Eagles, 3-0.  Milford was in each of the games of the three set match, but lost 25-19, 25-20, and 25-17.

 

THE WEEK AHEAD:  Milford will have two opportunities for their first conference win as they face West Clermont for the first time, and Turpin in the days ahead.  The Lady Eagles will close out the week hosting Western Brown.

The ECC’s Loveland moved up to sixth from seventh while Anderson fell to ninth.  Milford received three votes, down from seven the previous week, and Kings (12), Walnut Hills (9), Turpin (6) and West Clermont (3) joined Milford in receiving votes in the poll for week three.
