County teams back into the swing of things

(Continued)

After losing just one senior last season, the Cadets bring back seniors Justin Franchville and Drew Gowan to take on more of a leadership role.

“We ‘ll go as these two go this year,” Arthur said. “Both of them finished the year averaging under 40. Drew really came on strong at the end of the year and I’m hoping that momentum and work will continue this spring. I know Justin never stops working on his game and there will be a lot put on him to lead us and play well this year.”

Sophomore Hunter Drury returns after spending most of last season in the No. 1 slot. Along with Franchville and Gowan, he’ll make up the core of Cascade’s team.

“If they can continue to average under 40 and around even par, we’ll win a lot of matches and give us that shot at the WCC title,” Arthur said.

With the top three spots nailed down, the Cadets are searching for consistency at the four and five slots.

Arthur said he’s not sure who will be there and anyone could take those slots with a series of good performances.

Players looking for that opportunity include seniors Jake Canaday, Drake Whickee, and Johnny Will, junior Jackson Lance, and sophomore Austin Ferris.

“We, as a team, have to get the most out of each day,” Arthur said. “Having such a short time to prepare and a short season, every day counts. We talk a lot about ‘get better every day’ and that will be our motto for the season.”

Plainfield

After ending last season 12-1 with a fifth-place finish at sectional, Plainfield had two players advance through the regional and into the state tournament. Former Quaker Rylan Porter finished fourth at the state tournament while freshman Jon Gulley gained valuable experience for the remainder of his high school career.
