Third Place Finish At Harrison Invitational For Girls Cross Country

Posted on: September 27, 2017

SETTING THE SCENE:  Despite a hot morning with temperatures not ideal for running, the MHS girls cross country team finished third at the Harrison Invitation led by three Eagles who finished in the top ten.  With no events on the schedule for the next week, the Eagles will use their midseason break to gear up for the remainder of the regular season.


A LOOK BACK:  Three Lady Eagles finished in the top ten to lead the girls cross country team to a third place finish at the Harrison Invitational.  Olivia Loeffler was the first to cross the finish line for Milford with a time of 21.00, good for fourth place.  Loeffler was followed by Andrea Armstrong (6th, 21.08) and Emma Beck (8th, 21.23). Brooklyn George (32nd, 22.57); Hailey Steiner (33rd, 23.01), and Morgan Hills (34th, 23.02) crossed the finish together, followed closely by Brooke Stansell (36th, 23.21).

Oak Hills and Fairfield claimed first and second in the team points followed by Milford.  Megan John, a freshman from Oak Hills won the individual race with a time of 20.07.

THE WEEK AHEAD:  The Eagles have no events on the schedule in the upcoming week, as they recover and prepare for the final push for end of season, ECC championships and the postseason.  Looking ahead, Milford will run at the Ross Invitational on Oct. 7 at Ross High School.


INSIDE THE ECC:  About midway through the season, Olivia Loeffler remains the fastest Eagle of the season, currently ranked thirteenth in the ECC standings, joined by Andrea Armstrong (16th) in the top twenty.  Other Milford runners in the top third of the conference include Emma Beck (22nd), Hailey Steiner (35th); Lily Fleshour (t-49th); Brooke Stansell (51st), Gretchen Feldkamp (54th); and Morgan Hills (60th). 


POLL WATCH:  There was little movement with the most recent Cincinnati Enquirer’s area coaches’ poll for girls cross country.  Ursuline Academy stands alone at the top for week five after they moved out of the tie with Mason.  Kings, Lakota East and Turpin held onto third, fourth and fifth respectively, and Anderson again held steady at eighth.  Milford, who entered the poll with four votes in week four, fell out of the poll, while Loveland (10) was the only ECC program to receive votes in week five.
