A LOOK BACK:  The Lady Eagles opened the season on a high note with some of their best times in the past several years, following a hot and humid race at the Lakota East Fall Classic.    Freshman Emma Beck made an impression in her first varsity race, leading the ladies of Milford at 28th with a time of 21:49.   Classmate Olivia Loeffler wasn’t far behind, and finished in 22.18, good for 32nd place among a very crowded field.  Veteran Cymone Horton (38th) followed in 22.28, while Marisa Detore crossed the finish in 23.17.  Detore was followed by trio of Milford runners who finished together; Andrea Armstrong (24.05), Audrey Moore (24.08.2) and Trista Whitt (24.08.3). 

The Eastern Cincinnati Conference dominated the Invite, as the race was won by Hannah Rasmussen of Kings, finishing in 19:36.  The team from Kings won the title, followed by fellow ECC school Turpin in second, and Loveland in eighth.   Milford finished 10th of 16 teams.
