Milford bounced back when they hosted Withrow, a program in just their second year of existence. The Eagles won all three, taking the victory 25-7, 25-8, 25-18.

The Milford brought home a win over West Clermont later in the week.  In front of a spirited home crowd for the Wolves, the Eagles won in straight sets, 25-17, 25-13, 25-15.
