Huskies knock off Red Raiders

Until Tuesday, Cardinal’s golf team didn’t have much to show for its performance on the course.

The Huskies were playing well but struggled to win matches until they knocked off Harvey, 191-234, on Tuesday at Grandview Golf Club. The conference win was the Huskies’ first of the year.

“A few weeks ago, we were playing the best golf of our season but were unable to earn any victories,” said Cardinal coach Greg McCandless. “We lost to Wickliffe by one stroke and played pretty well against some strong teams. Today, we didn't play our best, but it feels good to earn our first CVC victory.”

Cardinal improved to 3-11 overall and 1-4 in the Chagrin Valley Conference Metro/Valley Division.

Junior Tyler Carroll shot a match-low 44 to take home medalist honors. Jerry Tamburro (47), Danny Knippenberg (49) and Brian Schultz (51) rounded out the Cardinal scorecard.

“Junior Tyler Carroll has been playing really steady golf for us all year,” McCandless said. “He did it again today. He has been striking the ball solidly all year and has been pretty successful at avoiding the big numbers.”

With the season winding down, McCandless hopes the Huskies use the momentum gained by the win to carry them through the postseason.

“We have a tough match on Thursday against Kirtland followed by the CVC Postseason tournament next week,” he said. “Hopefully we can get back to playing like we were a few weeks ago and finish the season on a strong note.”
