Milan Has Three Players Of The Week In First ORVC Fall Report

The first Ohio River Valley Conference weekly honors of the fall sports season have been announced.

(Milan, Ind.) – If the first Ohio River Valley Conference weekly report is an indication, Milan High School athletes are off to a great start in the 2019 fall sports season.

Milan’s Avery Getz is the Volleyball Player of the Week, Mackenzie Deffinger is the Girls Golfer Player of the Week, and Audrey Schmidt is the Girls Soccer Player of the Week for August 12-24.

Getz’s hot start on the volleyball court included 5 kills, 3 aces, 19 digs, and 25 assists in a loss to Waldron.

Deffinger posted a low score of 47 during a nine-hole golf meet at Hoosier Links.

Schmidt was been a brick wall in the net as goalkeeper for Milan soccer. She made 23 saves while not allowing a single ball past her last week.

Rising Sun’s Kendall Montgomery was honored as the ORVC Boys Soccer Player of the Week. He scored three goals and made one assist in two games – a win and a loss – for Rising Sun.

In cross country, South Ripley’s Lanie Nicholson and Southwestern’s Gavyn Mundt were the runners of the week. Nicholson posted times of 23:52 at the Early Bird Invitational and 22:11 at the Small School Invitational. Mundt ran the Small School Invitational course in 18:30.
