SWOC/ECC Tourney Ahead For Boys Bowling

Posted on: January 3, 2017

SETTING THE SCENE:  Following the holiday break, Milford stands at 3-4 overall and 3-3 in the ECC, good enough for third in the conference.  The Eagles resume action with a non-conference date with Amelia, as well as the annual SWOC/ECC tourney.

Last year’s SWOC/ECC Tournament was memorable for the Eagles.  Noah Dolezal set a new school record for 3 game series with a 671 and earned first team all-tournament honors, a first for the MHS boys bowling team at this event.  Three Eagles averaged over 200 in three games: Dolezal, 223; Cooper, 218; and McGeorge, 201.  The Eagles finished eighth of the fourteen teams.

 

A LOOK AHEAD:   This week the Eagles will head to Cherry Grove Lanes to meet Amelia, and will then travel to Northwest Lanes to the annual SWOC/ECC Challenge. 

  • Wednesday, 1/4:                    Milford @ Amelia High School, Chery Grove Lanes, 3:30 pm
  • Saturday, 1/7:                       Milford @ SWOC/ECC Challenge, Northwest Lanes, 9:00 am

 

INSIDE THE ECC:  There were no changes in the ECC over the holiday break.  Glen Este and Kings, both 6-0 in the ECC, sit atop the conference standings.  Milford follows at 3-3, and Walnut Hills remains 2-2.   Anderson and Turpin are 1-3, while Loveland fell to 1-5 and Withrow is 0-4. 

Milford’s team ranks second in the ECC with a regular average of 858.8.  Cooper, Dolezal and McGeorge of the Eagles are currently ranked near the top of the conference standings and are among the individual leaders in the ECC.

  • Josh Cooper:  high game (2nd – 259); high series (8th - 432)
  • Noah Dolezal:  high average (3rd – 197.4); high game (8th – 240); high series (6th – 449)
  • Nathan McGeorge:  high average (7th – 188.9); high series (10th – 425)

 

POLL WATCH:  Few changed occurred in the area coaches’ poll for Division I bowling, as the top five teams remain the same in week six; Elder, Oak Hills, Mason, Fairfield and Colerain.  The ECC’s Glen Este held onto sixth.  Kings (2) and Milford (1) were the only other ECC programs to receive votes in week six.
