For the Twinsburg girls golf squad, the regular season is all about process and progress.
The Tigers are working on both.
A busy week for the Tigers revealed three tight losses to more experienced teams, but Twinsburg shows continued growth under first-year coach Ashley Plassard.
"We were within eight shots of our opponent every match this week and we just need a few more pieces to click for us to get back to where we were at our first Suburban League tournament," said Plassard.
"I think we are all excited to be playing at home Saturday in our next Suburban League tournament," said the coach.
In its third straight close loss, the Tigers shot a season-low 191 in a loss to visiting Nordonia (183-191) Thursday. The locals also lost a league test to North Royalton 202-209 the day before.
Twinsburg lost a tight match to league cross division rival Aurora 193-200 Aug. 19.
Returning senior Tyler Gliba had a sensational tourney showing in the season opener as she fired an 82 at Brookledge.
Gliba hasn't looked back as she has continued to shine with her play.
"My lowest score was a 44 from Tyler against North Royalton," said Plassard. "Tyler consistently shot 46 and under this week and is playing really steady while landing some long puts and always crushing long drives off the tee."
Plassard was also thrilled with her youth too — especially rookie Lyndsey Stephens.
"Freshman Lyndsey Stephens stepped in and lowered our overall score significantly against Nordonia with a 42 on the front 9 of Glen Eagle," said Plassard.
"Glen Eagle is a course that Lyndsey assesses and plays well on, strategizing every hole," said the mentor.
Seniors Nia Fuentes and Audra Rosenthal are also back for the Tigers again this season. In addition, junior Sophia Sayavich also returns.
The Tigers host Streetsboro Sept. 3 and compete at the third Suburban League tourney, Sept. 7 at Ellsworth Meadows in Hudson.
