County teams back into the swing of things

(Continued)

After those top three spots, the Orioles will search for the right combination throughout the season to make up the varsity rotation and that very well could determine Avon’s postseason fate.

“I think the biggest key is always those X factors, typically at the four and five spots,” Maples said. “We go into just about every year confident in what you’re going to get out of the top three. It’s that next three kids where you’re just never sure what you’re going to get. We have about four or five kids who will have an opportunity to step in and lock down those spots. Those spots are always the difference in the state champion and everyone else.”

Looking to fill in those spots are Andrew Voss, Brian Joswick, Joe Floreancig, Hayden Shanahan, Chris Castelle, and Luke Berger. Maples said they’re “all kids capable of stepping up and making a big impact for us this year at the varsity level.”

Cascade

With a year as the boys’ golf coach under his belt, Anthony Arthur feels a bit more at ease as his team heads into this season.

“The biggest difference is that the guys are more comfortable with me, the way I teach, and what I expect from each of them,” Arthur said. “This is a great thing, in my opinion. In our first meeting of the year we talked about being able to run the team this year a lot easier and more of an individual atmosphere and that’s all because of having been with them last year.”

Hopefully, that will pay off for the Cadets as they look to improve on last season’s efforts. With constant improvement on their minds, Cascade set some reachable goals for its senior-laden team.

“This year the WCC title looks to be within reach for us,” Arthur said. “We’ve not won the conference title since 1994. We have a very experienced team ... capable of taking us there this year. That’s our biggest focus for the year but, like with every sport, you want your team to peak at sectional tournament time and we’re no different.”
