Volleyball Eagles Earn ECC, District Honors

Posted on: November 4, 2021

The first 20-win volleyball season at Milford in over two decades has produced several all-league and all-district awards for the Eagles’ top players. Headlining the list is senior Emily Morgan, chosen as the ECC Defensive Player of the Year, second team all-district and recognized by the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA).

Joining Morgan amongst the ECC’s elite is junior Campbell Robinson, a fellow first team All-ECC choice and a third team District 16 award winner. Rounding out the list of winners are second team All-ECC selection Lauren Pickett and honorable mention choice Olivia Gentry.

During her stellar career, Morgan was one of the top defensive players in the area. This fall, she ranked second in the league with 4.48 digs per set, while also handing out just over one assist per stanza. Morgan was also among the top-10 in the conference with 52 service aces. This year marks three consecutive All-ECC awards for the Miami (OH) University commit, including two straight first team honors.

Morgan was also honored by the AVCA with inclusion on its Best and Brightest Award list. The award recognizes top prep players nationwide who get the job done both on the court and in the classroom. Learn more about the award and its honorees here.

Robinson makes her first appearance on an all-league squad after an outstanding junior campaign. She placed seventh among all league players with 3.59 kills per set, while hitting an astounding .490 for the year. Robinson was also a force at the net with 58 blocks (0.71 per set) to tie for eighth in the ECC.

Pickett’s junior campaign saw her take control of the Milford offense from the setter position with outstanding results. By season’s end, Pickett was third in the league with 8.51 assists per set, while also collecting 1.85 digs per frame. Owner of a wicked serve, she finished second in the ECC with 69 aces.

Gentry is also a first time All-ECC selection in her senior season. She teamed with Robinson for a formidable middle hitter and blocker duo. Gentry’s final numbers show just under two kills per set and a solid .390 hitting percentage. She was also a force at the net with 52 blocks this season. Gentry will take her talents to Springfield College next fall.

In addition to these awards, Morgan and Gentry have been selected by area coaches to take part in upcoming special events. On Thursday, November 18, Lakota West will be the host for the District 16 All-Star and Senior Showcase matches. Morgan will play with other area all-stars, while Gentry is set to take part in the Senior Showcase. Action gets underway that night at 6pm.
