Seven Eagles Among Cincinnati Enquirer Winter All-Stars

Posted on: March 31, 2017

A total of seven Milford High School student-athletes have been recognized for their outstanding performance during the winter sports season with inclusion on the 2016-17 Cincinnati Enquirer Winter All-Star teams. The girls bowling squad, the first-ever from Milford to capture a conference championship, led the way with first team selection Jessica Haines and second team choice Alyna Hook.

 

Haines had an outstanding junior season as she led the Eagles with a 187.1 average en route to her second straight All-ECC first team honor. She ended the year with the highest series (490) in the league and the third best high game (256). Haines, also an OHSAA District Tournament qualifier, broke the Milford two-game series record by 61 pins.

 

Hook was another important contributor to the ECC Championship squad, also earning first team all-league honors and a berth in the district tournament. A three-time first team All-ECC selection, Hook ranked fifth in the league this winter with a 174.9 average and seventh with a 395 two-game series score.

 

Record-setting sophomore swimmer Tyler Babinec was Milford’s second first team all-city choice after another stellar season. At the state championship meet, Babinec earned the best finish in school history when he placed third in the 100 breaststroke. He was also selected the ECC’s Swimmer of the Year after setting four conference records at the league’s championship event.

 

Representing the Milford wrestling squad, senior Jimmy Murphy was a second team all-city choice by the Enquirer. Murphy wrapped up his career in style, qualifying for the OHSAA State Championship meet for the first time. He leaves MHS as the winningest wrestler in school history with 140 triumphs. This season, Murphy finished with a record of 47-7 and was the ECC Champion in the 132 pound weight class.

 

Milford’s honorable mention selections for the winter were Noah Dolezal (bowling), Tori Gilman (basketball) and Nathan McGeorge (bowling).
