SETTING THE SCENE: The 2015 water polo season will come to a conclusion this weekend as the Milford High School boys team, seeded sixth, competes in the 41st Ohio State Water Polo Championships. The event will be co-hosted by Mason and Princeton High Schools with matches being played at both locations on each day (Oct. 30-31). The Eagles, who concluded the regular season with a record of 17-9, will open play in the tournament’s first match, battling No. 11 Oakwood on Friday at 1 p.m. at Mason. The winner will be back in the water at 4:45 p.m. against No. 3 St. Charles, with the losing team headed to Princeton to face the loser of No. 7 Worthington and No. 10 Napoleon at 7:15 p.m.

LOOK BACK: The regular season concluded for the Eagles during the 24th annual Milford Invitational over the weekend of Oct. 9-11, with the host school winning two of five matches.
