Eagles who finished in second place include Kobey Bronaugh and Blake Miller.  Bronaugh, the sophomore wrestling at 113 lbs., advanced to the finals with two falls before losing 3-6 to Cameron Neal.  (Neal, of Prebble Shawnee, finished 7th last year at the OHSAA Division III State Championships, 106 lbs.).  At 170 lbs., Miller did not give up one takedown before losing to fellow ECC wrestler, Brady Eckert of Turpin in the finals.

Rounding out the placers for the Eagles were senior Kyle Brady, fifth at 145 lbs., and junior Tre Spillman, sixth at 170 lbs. 

Milford placed 8th of 26 teams, and tied with Little Miami with team scores of 107.  Host team Edgewood won the event with 137.5, followed by Piqua.  Troy and Simon Kenton tied for third, and LaSalle in fifth.  The ECC’s Turpin finished in 16th place with 65.5 points.
