February 16 at ECC Championships:

Milford’s wrestling team took third place at this weekend’s Eastern Cincinnati Conference Championships.

Kobey Bronaugh (#138) and Max Ward (#132) won the individual championships in their respective weight classes, both by pins. 

Bronaugh finished with 2 falls and 2 decisions, winning the finals match with a fall in 1:57 over West Clermont’s Will Turner.  It was Bronaugh’s third consecutive ECC Championship; he’s just the third Milford wrestler with three conference championships.

Ward won the title with 3 falls and an 11-1 major decision over runner-up Jake Ransbottom of West Clermont.  It was his second consecutive title as well, and he joins just nine other Eagles who have won two or more conference championships.

Five others took the podium in third place: Nathan Wiley (#113); Jonah Fouts (#120); Ray Clayton (#126); Joseph Cutting (#220); and Hayden Harvey (#285).  Chad Lynn, at #145, finished fourth.

West Clermont, with 273 points, won the 2019 ECC championship tournament.  Loveland, who had won the past two titles, finished second with 241 points while Milford finished third for the second consecutive year with 143 points.  The 143 points scored by the Eagles was 22 more than last year, and the highest score yet for the team in the seven years of existence of the ECC.

  1. West Clermont 273.0
  2. Loveland 241.0
