Tigers win CVC title, McGreal named MVP

Chagrin Falls edged Independence to win the Chagrin Valley Conference postseason tournament at St. Denis Golf Course on Monday. With the win, the Tigers also claimed the overall league title.

“I’m so proud of the team,” said Chagrin Falls coach Kristin Reboul. “Their success is the result of hard work and dedication.”

Chagrin Falls finished the tournament with 395 strokes. Independence was second with 402, Geneva was third with 439, Orange was fourth with 445 and Hawken rounded out the top five with 475.

All six Tigers finished among the top 12 and Katie Kwasny, Hanne Wilson and Maggie Mills all were among the top six golfers.

“It was terrific to see three of our players finish within the top six spots during the postseason tournament,” Reboul said. “Through the season, we had seven team members contribute low scoring rounds in CVC dual matches. We are fortunate to have a deep and talented roster. This accomplishment provides a nice confidence boost. The Division I sectional tournament is highly competitive but the Tigers are motivated and embracing the challenge.”

Kwasny finished third on Monday with a score of 95. Wilson was fifth with a 98 and Mills tied for sixth with a 100. Emma Bartlett (102), Piper Magyaros (105) and Cristina Joseph (107) finished 10th, 11th and 12th for the Tigers, respectively.

Led by league MVP Emma McGreal and Morgan Pascarella, Independence wasn’t far behind the Tigers.

“Kristin (Reboul) is a great person and she runs a class program at Chagrin Falls,” said Independence coach Karl Schuld. “We tried like heck to catch them this year but we just couldn’t do it.”

McGreal won the postseason tournament with a 90. Thanks to her strong performance at the preseason tournament and in regular season dual matches she earned enough points to win the league’s MVP award. She finished with 158 points while Chagrin’s Mills was second with 149.

“To win the league MVP award feels great,” McGreal said. “It was my goal before the season started so accomplishing that goal is a really good way to end the conference season. Winning MVP gives me a lot of confidence heading into the postseason. Knowing that I am prepared and able to get a good score helps lighten the stress of postseason.”

Pascarella carded a 92 on Monday to finish second behind McGreal at the postseason tournament. Allie Ksiazka also recorded a top 10 finish with her 101, good for eighth place overall.
