Tough Road Faces Boys Golf This Week

Posted on: September 13, 2016

SETTING THE SCENE: A slate that feature three teams ranked among the city’s best is in front of the Milford High School boys golf team as they embark on the latter stages of its regular season. Still very much in the race for another Eastern Cincinnati Conference crown, the Eagles will take a pause from league play on Wednesday when they take part in a quad meet with two of the top-three squads in the city, St. Xavier and Mason, along with a strong Oak Hills squad. Milford will also take to the links against a Kings squad just behind the Eagles in the ECC rundown. The tough competition should position the Eagles well for the upcoming ECC (Sept. 29) and OHSAA Sectional Championships (Oct. 4) in just a few weeks.

 

THE UPCOMING DOCKET: A look at Milford’s schedule for the upcoming week:

  • Wednesday, Sept. 14 vs. Mason/Oak Hills/St. Xavier, Shaker Run GC, 4:00 p.m.
    • Mason 2016 Dual Record: N/A (3rd Division I area coaches’ weekly poll)
    • Mason Top Player: Garrett Wood (35.9 average)
    • Oak Hills 2016 Dual Record: N/A (RV Division I area coaches’ weekly poll)
    • Oak Hills Top Player: Ethan McCarthy (39.3 average)

    • St. Xavier Top Player: N/A
  • Tuesday, Sept. 15 vs. Kings, Deer Track Golf Course, 4:00 p.m.
    • 2016 Dual Record: 7-2, 3-1 ECC (10th Division I area coaches’ weekly poll)
    • Top Player: Zach Handorf (40.0 average)

 

A LOOK BACK: Sept. 6 at Glen Este: The Eagles posted a convincing 161-202 win over Glen Este on Sept. 6 at Stillmeadow Country Club. Senior Aaron Wade’s strong season continued as he led all players with a low score of 38.

 

INSIDE THE ECC: The ECC standings show Loveland with the advantage with a perfect 3-0 league slate. Milford is 2-0 in league head-to-head contests and sits second, with Kings just behind at 3-1.

 

Individually, the Eagles feature two the league’s top- ranked golfers in seniors Nathan Arnold (1st-37.5 average) and Aaron Wade (4th-38.5).

 

POLL WATCH: For the third straight week, Milford is ranked sixth in the weekly area Division I coaches’ poll, released on Sept. 12 and sponsored by the Cincinnati Enquirer. St. Xavier remains the No. 1 ranked squad with seven number one votes, but is just a few points ahead of Lakota East who received an identical number of top nods. Mason, Elder and Moeller round out the top-five above the Eagles. The ECC is also represented by Loveland in eighth, Kings in 10th and the duo of Turpin and Anderson, each receiving votes. The coaches’ poll is released every Monday at Noon at preps.cincinnati.com/coachespolls.
