Two Conference Opponents On Schedule Following Girls Volleyball ECC Win

Posted on: September 26, 2017

SETTING THE SCENE:  Two conference dates await the Milford girls volleyball team in the week ahead.   The Lady Eagles picked up their second Eastern Cincinnati Conference victory last week, a sweep of Withrow.  This week finds the Eagles hosting Loveland, and visiting West Clermont.  The team will enter the upcoming week with momentum after two wins, over Withrow and Princeton.

  

A LOOK BACK:  Milford headed to Withrow on Tues., 9/19 for the first of two ECC matches in 2017.  The Eagles came home with a win in straight sets, their second conference win of the season.  Milford easily claimed the victory with scores of 25-4, 25-2, and 25-1.

Thursday’s match with #8 Anderson of the ECC proved more difficult for the Eagles.  Though competitive, Anderson took the win from Milford in straight sets, 25-15, 25-19, 25-16.

The week ended on a positive note as the Lady Eagles hosted the annual fundraiser, "Volley for a Cause." Princeton visited Milford on Sat., 9/23, and the Eagles collected their second win of the week in three straight sets; 25-10, 25-12, 25-15.  Over $1,300.00 was raised for “Feed Our Flock,” a mobile food pantry program that was created to help teens access food in a convenient and private way. 

 

THE WEEK AHEAD:  The Lady Eagles have ECC dates on the docket this week.  Milford will host ECC leader and #6 Loveland, and will then travel for the first time to the new West Clermont High School.  Milford defeated West Clermont in their first meeting this season, 3-1.
