CRANFORD, NJ – The Cranford High School Varsity golf team hopes to improve on last year’s performance as they enter into the difficult part of the tournament season, according to coach William Ray.

The golf team currently stands 7-1, with the only loss to Scotch Plains-Fanwood earlier this week. Last year, the team finished third in Group II in the state sectional tournament.

“Our strength this season has been our depth,” Ray said, citing a win against Union Catholic on April 19, a team that was previously undefeated.

The team leader is junior John Bush, who finished second in the Union County Tournament last year and placed in the tournament of champions as a freshman and sophomore, Ray said.

“The seniors have added experience to the program,” he added. “Seniors Ryan Shatinsky, Ryan Faraone and Anders Myhre are averaging 42.25, 43 and 43.75, respectively.”

Additionally, Bush and junior Tom Gilmartin are averaging a 37.4 and 44, respectively. They’ve  both played in five matches. Sophomore Mike Schneider is averaging 45.25.

However, Ray said the entire team shows promise as they enter into tournament rounds.

“We are coming into the difficult part of the tournament season with the Conference, Union County and State Sectional titles coming up,” Ray said.

The CHS golf team will also play in the Blue Devil invitational on May 7. For the team’s full schedule, click here.
