Girls Volleyball To Host First Home Match This Week

Posted on: August 21, 2016

SETTING THE SCENE:  The MHS varsity volleyball team will enter the second week of competition at 0-1, following a tough loss to Talawanda in the season opener.  Two non-conference games will help the Eagles prior to their first conference games, when they will face Turpin and Anderson who finished first and second in 2015 in the Eastern Cincinnati Conference.

 

A LOOK BACK:  Milford headed to Talawanda on Sat., Aug. 20 for their season opener and lost to Talawanda, but not without a fight.  The Eagles claimed the first set 25-22, while the home team rebounded to take the second and third sets 18-22, 20-25.  The Eagles battled but lost an amazing fourth set, 30-32 to give Talawanda the win.
