As the approach of the holidays speeds up, the sports schedules of Clermont County’s high school teams begin to slow down accordingly. Milford skimmed by Glen Este 46-44 in an inner-county, next door neighbor showdown in the Buckeye Division of the Fort Ancient Valley Conference. The visiting E-Gals were in command at each intermission 11-4, 21-18, and 36-27 before the Trojans gathered together for a determined rally in the last eight minutes of the fray to close the gap considerably.
The new head coach at the barony is Craig Mazzaro, who formerly was the very successful head coach of the Amelia boys basketball program. The Blue and White began the campaign with a 2274-2121 loss to McNicholas’ Rockets in non-league play. Vestring led all bowlers with his two-game total of 416 pins.
Glen Este’s male varsity cagers continue their unblemished ways having racked up four consecutive victories. Finneytown was a flop trying to top the Trojans. The Purple and White won out over their hosts 59-43 commanding quarter leads of 14-11, 26-17, and 39-30 in this non-conference contest.
