SETTING THE SCENE:  The Eagles will have the opportunity to make strides in their quest for first place in the ECC this week.  Milford will take on the Glen Este Trojans, who are tied for first with Kings.  Two wins over Loveland and a good showing at the Holiday Classic should add to the Eagles’ confidence in the week ahead.

Cooper's 259 in game two led Milford to the sweep of Loveland with a 2460-2239 win on 12/7.  Dolezal averaged a 211, and Nathan McGeorge had a high series of 340.  In game one, Fernandez contributed a 164, and Jeremiah Mitchell added a 137 in game two.

The MHS boys bowling squad took part in the Annual Holiday Classic on Sunday, at the historic Western Bowl.  The Eagles placed 13th overall of 34 teams from Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee.  McGeorge guided the Eagles with a 209.7 average and a three game series of 629.  Dolezal posted the high game for the Eagles (236) and a three game average of 205.7.  Cooper added a three game series of 564, and Fernandez (159) and Koczwara (181) each added a game in the tournament.
