A LOOK BACK: Milford's first victory of the season was a close 2505-2486 victory over McNicholas High School, #4 in the preseason rankings for the Division II area coaches’ poll.  The Eagles were led by Nathan Hawkins' two-game series of 451, followed by Franklin Abt’s high game of 233 and 404 series. A.J. Kaylor posted a 387 series followed by Kyle Fanning (318) and Michael Kow (253).


A LOOK AHEAD:  This week the Eagles (1-0) will face their first conference opponent of the year with home and away meetings with Kings (0-1).  The week closes at the Annual Big Blue Challenge, where Milford finished 12th in 2017.

Tues., Nov. 27:           Milford at Kings High School, Mason Bowl, 3:45 pm

A LOOK INSIDE THE NUMBERS:  With conference play yet to begin, Milford, Loveland and Turpin sit atop the ECC standings, all 1-0 in non-conference action.  Kings is 0-1, while Anderson competed at a tournament over the weekend and Walnut Hills and West Clermont open the season this week.

Though early in the season, Milford is off to a strong start and atop the team leaders with a 906.5 team average.  Statistical leaders for the Eagles:

The ECC’s West Clermont falls to tenth from sixth. Again, Milford (11) sits just outside the top ten, and is joined by ECC programs Kings (8), Anderson (7), Loveland (6) and Walnut Hills (4) in receiving votes for week one, which can be found at
