A host of athletes are putting up solid marks for the youthful Twinsburg girls golf squad under first-year head coach Matt McAdoo.

This season has been a positive learning experience for a young Tigers unit that does have a single senior on the roster.

Twinsburg, 1-4 overall, does have some experience.

Returnees from last season include a large junior class with Tyler Gliba, Nia Fuentes, Kaite Gwatkin, and Audra Rosenthal.

Another promising returnee is sophomore Sophia Sayavich, plus sophomores Jordan Nudelman and Jasmine Jamison are also back for the Tigers.

"Although we have struggled the past few matches, I am staying positive," noted McAdoo.

"My goal was to see improvement throughout the year and there is still plenty of time to see that. We will continue to practice and get better every day."

Top newcomers for Twinsburg include freshmen Maya Stewart and Abby Ryan

In most recent action, Twinsburg lost 172-221 to loaded Stow-Munroe Falls Wednesday at Gleneagles Golf Course in Twinsburg in a Suburban League contest.

Stow is 9-1 overall and 4-0 in the league while the Tigers slipped to 1-3 in the league.

"Our No. 1 golfer for the first three league matches is Tyler (Gliba), who is averaging a 50.0." said McAdoo.

Fuentes fired a 49 to lead Twinsburg against Stow.

Stewart showed strong flashes of strong play with a 53 against the Bulldogs while Gliba had a 59, and Rosenthal had a 60.

In a recent win over Cuyahoga Falls, the team shot a 209 with counting scores of 49 from Fuentes, Gliba with a 49, Gwatkin carded a 55, and Sayavich had a 56.

"I feel like we are close to breaking though," said McAdoo, who understands the youth aspect. "We have had good practices where players have shot their personal best scores. If we can get out of our own way and stay in it mentally throughout the whole rounds, we can hang with anyone."

Twinsburg hosts Wadsworth Sept 12, plays Hudson at Ellsworth Meadows Golf Club Sept. 17, and plays at Ellsworth against Nordonia on Sept. 19.
