Three On Tap For Girls Volleyball, Including “Volley for a Cause”

Posted on: September 17, 2017

SETTING THE SCENE:  Heading into the second half of the season, Milford’s girls volleyball team will look for another conference victory as they meet with the ECC’s Withrow and Kings in the week ahead.  The Lady Eagles will then host the annual "Volley for a Cause" on Saturday when they play Princeton. 


A LOOK BACK:  Though it was close in each, Milford fell to Walnut Hills in three sets on Tues., Sept. 12.  Walnut Hills opened the match with 21-25 wins in the first and the second.  The Eagles made Walnut earn the win however, taking the third set to the wire with a score of 24-26.

Milford hosted Kings on Thurs., Sept. 14.  Kings took the first two sets 25-17 and 25-18.  However, Milford fought back to take the third in a 25-12 win.  Once again, the Lady Eagles put up a fight, but fell 25-22 in set four.

The Eagles ended the week by heading to Little Miami High School for a weekend nonconference date.  Milford began with a 25-16 win, but fell in the second set, 14-25.  In Eagles were faced with another close battle, but prevailed for the 3-1 win with victories in the final two sets, with identical scores of 25-23 in each.


THE WEEK AHEAD:  Milford will face off with the ECC’s Withrow and Anderson before hosting Princeton.  The match with Princeton will serve as the team’s annual Volley for a Cause   fundraiser.  The 2017 beneficiary is “Feed our Flock,” a mobile food pantry program that was created to help teens access food in a convenient and private way.  These pantries will be placed in the Junior and Senior High Schools.  All proceeds will be used to purchase the mobile food pantries and food to fill them.

INSIDE THE ECC:  With a win over Anderson last week, Loveland now sits alone atop the Eastern Cincinnati Conference standings after improving to 6-0 in the ECC.  Anderson fell to 6-1, tied with Turpin.  Kings fell to 3-3, while West Clermont and Walnut Hills are both 2-4.  Milford follows at 1-5, and Withrow ends the week at 0-6.  Lady Eagles who are currently ranked in the ECC's top ten include:

POLL WATCH:   Ursuline Academy, who defeated Mount Notre Dame last week, again maintained the top ranking of the area coaches’ poll for week five.  Mount Notre Dame, Mason, and Mercy held onto the second through fourth rankings, though St. Ursula passed Loveland for fifth.  Loveland fell to sixth, and Anderson fell to eighth from seventh.  Milford received two votes, up from just one in week four, and Kings (3) and Walnut Hills (2) received votes as well.  Turpin, who last week received three votes, fell out of the poll in week five.
