Lions loaded with potential

Orange returns five starters from the team that finished in third place last season in the Chagrin Valley Conference Chagrin Division.

Head coach Rick Clark sees the potential the Lions have this season but he also knows anything can happen on the course.

“I am cautiously excited heading in,” Clark said. “We are returning five starters but still have quite a bit of youth on the team. I would expect that we individually get better from last year. If we focus on this, as a team we will compete this year.”

Junior Dawson Goss and sophomores Jackson Fellinger and Jack Stover are among the most talented on the roster.

Fellinger earned second-team All-CVC honors as a freshman.

“Jackson used his freshman year to get used to varsity golf and has a chance to be one of our better golfers this year,” Clark said.

Goss and Stover both were honorable mention all-league honorees.

“Dawson’s first year of varsity gave him some great experience and he looks forward to being a more complete player as a junior,” Clark said. “Like Jackson Fellinger, Jack was able to gain invaluable experience as a freshman and looks to take a step forward as a sophomore.”
