Milford High School seniors Hunter Losekamp and Kayla Gregory inked papers to continue their athletic careers at the next level during a ceremony at the high school on Nov. 13.

Losekamp, a power-hitting catcher, signed to play next season for the University of Cincinnati.

During his junior campaign, Losekamp hit .313 and carried a .451 on-base percentage. He knocked in 18 runs, scored 17 himself and recorded six doubles.

Losekamp also was second in the Eastern Cincinnati Conference with three home runs.

For his efforts, Losekamp was named to the Second Team All-ECC.

At UC, Losekamp will play under Ty Neal who will begin his first season as the Bearcats’ head coach this spring.

Gregory, a transfer from Glen Este, signed her National Letter of Intent to play softball at Bowling Green State University.

Gregory became the first-ever ECC Player of the Year following her junior season. She was also a Second Team All-Ohio selection.

In the league’s inaugural season, Gregory hit a league-best .490, got on base at a 53.3-percent clip, drove in 18 runs and scored 25 herself.

Gregory also stole 11 bases, racked up 10 doubles, five triples and hit one round-tripper.
