Since Leona White took over as the Milford girls’ basketball coach there has been little doubt that this team has been resilient. Often overcoming adversity, just when it looked as though the season might get away from them. Last year after starting out to a 6-0 start and controlling the Henlopen South through the end of January, things headed south very quickly for the Buccaneers. In a one week span, Milford would drop games to Woodbridge and Lake Forest. In losing those two games, Milford would lose the Henlopen South.
The Lady Buccaneers have started with a rather strange schedule to this point, with six of their seven games having been played on the road. The result has been a 4-3 record, with their only Henlopen South loss coming at Lake Forest. Milford will continue their travels as they start 2017. Their next three games will come on the road as well. Milford will face big tests at 4-3 Indian River this Tuesday, before heading to 5-1 Laurel on Friday. While difficult, these are the kinds of road tests the Buccaneers will need to win if they want to win the South. Tip for both contests are set for 5:00pm.
