A LOOK BACKDecember 15-16, Milford at Glen Sample Classic Tournament

The Eagles wrestled at the Southwest Ohio Wrestling Coaches Association Tournament this past weekend, finishing 36th of 49 of the area’s top teams.  Both Max Ward (132) and Hayden Harvey (285) qualified to move on to day 2 of competition. 

Though Ward lost his first match to ECC rival Anderson, he came back with 3 dominate wins in the consolation bracket including victories over athletes from Turpin, Fairfield, and Oak Hills before losing to Lebanon’s Marsh, who went on to finish in 5th place.  Harvey was the only Milford wrestler to advance in the championship bracket, winning his first two matches by fall over Loveland and Talawanda.  In the quarterfinals, Harvey lost in a battle of throws to the 4th place finisher from Beavercreek, and again in consolation to the 5th place finisher from Edgewood.  Other double winners on Saturday included Derek Elliott (145) and Alex Price (160) who both went 2-2.

With 199 points, Harrison took the team title with Fairfield the runners-up, just .5 out of the championship.  Elder, Ross and Centerville round out the top five.  West Clermont was the top ECC team at the Classic with an 11th place finish.
