Aurora -- Several Greenmen boys golfers have been playing well as of late, but head coach Dave Munson has been getting contributions from everyone.

Aurora (1-3) lost a tough Suburban League American Conference home match Sept. 1 to powerful Medina Highland 162-172 at Barrington Golf Club (front nine, par 36).

The strong Hornets had six players score 44 or below, with three at 40 in David Laib, Rob Guba, and Carson Wirebaugh.

"Highland won the league tournament this season over Revere so they are the best in the league so far and have a lot of depth," explained Munson, whose club moved to 1-2 in the SL American.

Pacing Aurora was veteran Jeremy Thorn, who carded a 40.

"Jeremy did a good job and we did well with a low score for our team this year, but Highland's depth was a key," said the coach.

Michael Avalon added a 43 along with James Robinson, while Jack Schroeder fired a 46, Will Snyder 49, and Spencer Harris 54.

"Robinson is a first-year player and he scored for us, which is great, and it was his season low," noted Munson. "We are improving. I have been using different players at the five and six spots."

On Aug. 29, AHS won in league play over Barberton 174-212 at Barrington as Avalon fired a 1-over par 37.

"Mike played exceptional and has worked very hard this season," said Munson. "That was our season best for nine holes and he has been playing very consistently.

"I think Mike keeps the ball in play and goes up and down on the greens pretty well."

Thorn turned in a solid 43, while Schroeder had a 45, Snyder added 49, Jonathan Kokinchak 51 and Matt Maselli 52. Barberton was led by Jayden Morgan with a 49.

Schroeder recently contributed a 43 in a 174-182 loss at Twinsburg. Snyder and Thorn added rounds of 46 each.

In upcoming action, Aurora plays Sept. 8 against Revere at Fairlawn Country Club, Sept. 12 in a tri-match with Orange and Willoughby South at Club Walden and Sept. 13 at Streetsboro (Raccoon Hills).
