Haines On SWOC/ECC All-Tourney Team As Girls Bowling Takes Second Place

Posted on: January 8, 2017

SETTING THE SCENE:   After a busy week, the girls from Milford will face two with the Eastern Cincinnati Conference’s Turpin before the annual LaSalle Lancer Baker Bash on Sunday.  The girls ended the week with a second place finish at the SWOC/ECC Conference Tournament, where Jessica Haines received all-tournament honors.


A LOOK BACK:  Milford’s girls team took down Amelia easily, winning 2293-1563.  Alyna Hook led the Eagles to the win, with a personal season high of 213 and total high series of 374.  Close behind Hook for the Eagles: Jessica Haines (350); MacKenzie Mason (335); and Megan Cannon (328).  Mason’s 185 in game two was a personal best in varsity action as well.  Jessica Norman added a 168 in the nonconference win.

The squad headed to the annual SWOC/ECC Tournament on Saturday, and came away with second place overall, falling just shy of conference foe and first place Glen Este.   Haines, who averaged a 193 in the three game series, was named to the All-Tournament Team for the second consecutive year.  Hook (508), Mason (494), and Lauren Shelton (456) competed in all three games, while Cannon scored a two game high series of 317 including a personal varsity high game of 169.
