Girls Volleyball To Celebrate Seniors Prior to Thursday’s Match With ECC Foe Turpin

Posted on: October 8, 2018

SETTING THE SCENE:  The Lady Eagles will celebrate Senior Night in the week ahead, as they wrap up the regular season schedule.  Milford will first travel to Walnut Hills, and prior to hosting Turpin will honor seniors Molly Buck, Lindsey Strathman, Cami Mallott, and Erica Sharp as they play their final game on the home court. 

  

THE UPCOMING DOCKET:  The final week of the regular season won’t be an easy one.  Milford earned a win in the first meeting with Walnut Hills last month, and a victory this week would move the Eagles up in the standings and break the tie as both currently sit at 3-9 in the ECC.  The Lady Eagles will then recognize the seniors in a pregame ceremony prior to hosting #8 Turpin.

Tuesday, 10/9:             Milford @ Walnut Hills High School, 7:00 pm

Thursday, 10/11:         Turpin High School @ Milford, 7:00 pm – SENIOR NIGHT
