Galion’s girls team still fairly new, but getting better

GALION — This fall will mark the third season that Galion High School has sent out a girls golf team to compete.

And while the program is still very young, coach Mark Barriers is looking for improvement over last year’s 3-21 overall mark.

Although Galion lost golfers Reagan Wells and Karrisa Rinehart to graduation, the team returns four girls from a year ago, Returning players, all letterwinners, include junior Alexis Chaplin, who received her first varsity letter last season. Senior Greer Gledhill, who with two letters, is expected to provide some leadership this year, Shae Ness (most improved last season) and Abby Barre (most valuable golfer last year and honorable mention in the Mid-Ohio Athletic Conference).

New to the squad this season are senior Brooklyn Potter and junior Macy Eicher.

The Tigers have already packed a lot of play into their season, including the Buckeye Central Invitational and the Tiffin Invitational. Home matches will be at Sycamore Creek, formerly Galion Country Club.
