MHS Girls Bowling Team On A Roll Headed Into Second Half Of Season

Posted on: January 3, 2017

SETTING THE SCENE:   Milford entered the holiday break on the heels of their first ever win over Glen Este.  Now both teams sit atop the standings and share first place.  Milford stands at 5-1 overall and in the ECC.  The Eagles resume action after the holiday break with a nonconference date with Amelia as well as the SWOC/ECC tourney.

At last year’s SWOC/ECC Tournament, the Eagles placed 2nd of 12 teams, the highest finish for Milford in the history of the event.  Jessica Haines set a new Milford girls record for a single game of 269, and a new record for a three game high series of 591.  Haines earned first team all-tournament honors, as well.  Two other Milford Eagles averaged over 160 in three games, including Alyna Hook’s 169. 


A LOOK AHEAD:  This week the Eagles will head to Cherry Grove Lanes to meet Amelia, and will then travel to Northwest Lanes to the annual SWOC/ECC Challenge. 

  • Wednesday, 1/4:                    Milford @ Amelia High School, Chery Grove Lanes, 3:30 pm
  • Saturday, 1/7:                       Milford @ SWOC/ECC Challenge, Northwest Lanes, 9:00 am


INSIDE THE ECC:  With Milford’s first win ever over Glen Este, the Eagles remain tied with the Trojans 5-1 and at the top of the ECC standings.  Turpin and Anderson are both 2-2; Kings, Loveland and Walnut Hills follow.

The Eagles are ranked second in the conference with a team regular average of 791.2.  Jessica Haines ranks among the top three in all categories of the ECC, while Alyna Hook and Lauren Shelton are also among the individual leaders in the top ten of the ECC.

  • Jessica Haines:  high average (1st – 187.2); high game (3rd – 214); series high (3rd - 406)
  • Alyna Hook:  high average (4th – 165.5)
  • Lauren Shelton:  high average (9th – 159.2); high game (t-4th – 211); high series (7th – 374)


POLL WATCH:  Idle over the break, Milford fell out of the top ten but sits ready to move back up with fourteen votes in week six.  Oak Hills, Seton, Glen Este, Fairfield and Northwest round out the top five of the area coaches’ poll this week.  Anderson (4) and Turpin (1) are the only other ECC programs represented in this week’s poll.
