NORWICH – Despite having a starting lineup devoid of a senior or junior, this year's Norwich golf team portends of current and future excellence.
"We have young guys, but many of them are already very experienced," said Norwich first-year coach Dave Branham, who steps in for older brother Bob Branham. Bob Branham retired from coaching this past spring after 20-plus years as head coach of the Tornado. "We're excited about this group, and we'll have all of them for the next three seasons."
Leading the way in experience is fourth-year starter Ryan Johnson. Johnson became the first Norwich freshman to qualify for the Section IV state team joining his brother Corey to make up two-ninths of the section's all-star team.
