Win Over Glen Este A First For Girls Bowling

Posted on: December 20, 2016

SETTING THE SCENE:   Milford battled with Eastern Cincinnati Conference rival Glen Este last week, and came away with their first ever win over the Trojans.  Since the two teams each collected one win, they both sit atop the standings and share first place as the holiday break begins.

 

A LOOK BACK:  In the struggle for the top spot in the ECC standings, Glen Este took the first of two last week in Monday’s loss, 2297-2566.  Alyna Hook led the Eagles with a high game of 170, and Jessica Haines’ 354 posted the high series for Milford.  Other high series included Lauren Shelton (323) and Jessica Norman (304), while Megan Cannon added a 162 in game two.  Glen Este was led by Courtney Chaffin with a high series of 408.

The Eagles, however, battled back and defeated the Trojans for the first time ever in Wednesday’s contest.  In a classic, Milford won at home by just 8 pins, 2348-2340 to hang on to a share of first place.  Haines set a new personal season high game, leading the Eagles with a 214 in game one and a series high of 392.  Shelton’s 211 and series of 374 was a new personal season’s best, as was Hook’s high series of 350 and Norman’s high series of 331.  A team effort, Cannon and MacKenzie Mason helped the Eagles to the win over their conference rival as well.

 

A LOOK AHEAD:  The Eagles will be idle over the holiday break.  When they return in 2017, Milford will host a non-conference match with Amelia, and then head to the annual SWOC/ECC Challenge. 

 

INSIDE THE ECC:  With Milford’s first win ever over Glen Este, the Eagles remain tied with the Trojans at the top of the ECC standings.  Turpin and Anderson are both 2-2; Kings, Loveland and Walnut Hills follow.

Jessica Haines ranks among the top three in all categories of the ECC, while Alyna Hook and Lauren Shelton are also among the individual leaders in the top ten of the ECC.

  • Jessica Haines:  high average (1st – 187.2); high game (3rd – 214); series high (3rd - 406)
  • Alyna Hook:  high average (4th – 165.5)
  • Lauren Shelton:  high average (9th – 159.2); high game (t-4th – 211); high series (7th – 374)

 

POLL WATCH:  Milford remained ranked sixth in the area coaches’ poll for week four, but their win over Glen Este last week moved the Trojans out of first place.  Oak Hills is now at the top followed by Seton, while Glen Este fell to third.  Fairfield and Northwest round out the top five, with Milford in sixth.   With seven votes each, Anderson and Kings are the only other ECC programs represented in this week’s poll.
