Still young, but looking for greatness on the green
TIFFIN— Coach Jason Goslin says his CCA girls’ golf team is still young. In his fourth year with the program, Goslin, and assistant coach Carmine Scarpa, has only one senior returning, Maddie Shrader. Sophomores Gabi Scarpa, Anna Johnson and Kelly Noska are also back along with sophomores Eden Campbell, Katelynn Haijsky and Kaitlin VanVoorst. Junior Kate Walker is also back in the Clipper lineup.
Junior Nicole Hegewald and freshmen Nicole Davis, Sarah McGrath and Haley Mougin are new to the squad this season.
Last year the team put up an overall record of 34-19 while taking second in the WaMaC West, sixth in WaMaC, and sixth in district competition.
Goslin sees strength in Shrader’s leadership, noting she is a three-year starter. He also looks to Scarpa, “our returning number one from last year.”
“We’re still young. Four of our starters last year were freshmen and we placed second in the WaMaC West behind a tough Williamsburg team by only six shots,” Goslin said.
The coach figures Williamsburg to be tough again this year along with Grinnell.
“Look for great things to happen in the CCA program in the next few years.”
