Edgewood has potential in CVC debut

With five returning starters, Edgewood has the potential to make some noise in its first season of play in the Chagrin Valley Conference Valley Division.

New head coach Chris Juncker is eager to see what returning starters Max Crooks, Ryan Green, Dominic Paolillo, Jake Holden and Hunter Johnson can achieve on the course.

“Having talked to my starters from last year, I am very excited to see if they can continue to improve and be as successful as they were last year,” Juncker said. “I expect all my players to play with integrity and work hard to improve their scores. I believe if they put in the time and work hard they should all see improvement throughout the year.”

The first order of business for the Warriors is replacing Dylan Fitchet, who graduated in the spring after finishing as the state runner-up last fall.

Filling Fitchet’s golf spikes won’t be easy.

Green, who averaged 37 strokes per nine holes last season, and Johnston, who carded an average of 44 in nine-hole events, are among the most talented of Warriors.

“Ryan is a very knowledgeable golfer who puts in endless hours working on his game. Additionally, he is constantly helping others to get better and leads by example,” Juncker said. “Hunter takes the game of golf seriously and is constantly critiquing all parts of his game trying to get better.”
