“Class B championship goes on the gymnasium wall, STAC championship goes on the gymnasium wall, I would love that for these senior kids who have been so close so many times. They’re good enough to win, there is no doubt about it. If they are all patient with themselves, play all 18 holes, and remember it's a marathon,” said Norwich head coach Dave Branham. “The players who are mentally tough and adjust the quickest are gonna be the winners.”
Norwich will be bringing: Ryan Johnson, Brenon Maynard, Nate Scheer, Alex Gage, Griffin Clipston, and A.J. Little – coming off a divisional win and tying once again for the Class B championship, Norwich hopes to add a STAC Championship to their already impressive resume in 2016, which also includes a division record of 11-1 and overall record of 12-3.
Coach Branham offered up a comment on each of his athletes as they ready themselves to take to the the 18 hole, 72 par course for their biggest match of the season.
