In just its second year as a member of the Fort Ancient Valley Conference, Milford High School won the conference’s all-sports trophy for the Buckeye Division.
Points for the trophy are awarded for the place earned in each sport.
The final overall tally saw Milford with 100 points, Loveland had 95.5, Anderson 95, Harrison 71.5, Glen Este 67.5, and Winton Woods 48.5.
The Red and White was runner-up in girls swimming and softball and co-runner-up in baseball.
"This is a measure of the success of the whole athletic department relative to win/loss accomplishments versus other league schools. Last year we ended in third place and we made a goal this year in our Athletic Strategic Plan of finishing second," said Mark Trout, Milford High School athletic director.
"The important thing is that all league sports play a part in whether we win a title or not. The better each team finishes, the more points we earn towards the final total, so it's a collective effort on everybody's part. A true department-wide 'team' endeavor.
"This is a great competitive accomplishment for the athletic department because it shows that, at least relative to our league opponents, our programs are competitive overall.
"Thanks and congratulations to all of our athletes, coaches, parents, boosters, administration, staff, supporters, fans, sponsors, workers, etcetera. Everybody deserves credit for their contribution - from the smallest to the largest, out on stage or behind the scenes, it doesn't happen without a collective effort by all involved. It was only through a lot of planning, hard work, dedication, and discipline that we have been able to accomplish this very special goal."
Glen Este,too, enjoyed success in conference competition. The Trojans were champions of baseball and softball.
The Purple and White was runner-up in wrestling, girls basketball, and girls bowling.
