League, District Honors Roll In For Eagle Volleyball

Posted on: November 6, 2020

Another successful volleyball season at Milford High School has resulted in several players, along with head coach Amy Gill, earning recognition from the Eastern Cincinnati Conference and District 16 coaches. Headlining the list is junior Emily Morgan who was placed on the All-ECC first team and the All-Southwest District second team.

Senior Morgan Whitaker picked up second team All-ECC honors and was named a District Senior Showcase Athlete. Kennedy Robinson (2nd team) and Julia Gill (honorable mention) were both honored by the ECC, with the latter, along with Jill Stokes earning Senior Academic Awards. Coach Gill and her staff were recognized with a coach’s achievement award and the Milford squad earned the Team Academic Award.

Morgan was a defensive stalwart for the Eagles as one of the area’s top liberos. She led the ECC in both digs (410) and service aces (62), while crossing the 1,000 career dig plateau in just her junior season.

Whitaker had a stellar senior campaign, ranking 13th among the league’s top players with 212 kills and second with 1,170 pass points. Robinson was also strong as a senior, finishing with the 16th most kills (183) and adding 30 blocks. Julia Gill was part of Milford’s two-setter attack and she finished fifth in the league with 462 assists, while adding 214 digs.

The Eagles finished 2020 with a 17-8 overall record and a 10-6 mark in the ECC. Over the last two seasons, Milford has posted consecutive 17+ wins campaigns, District appearances and recorded the program’s most wins in two straight seasons since 2011-2012.
