Arisons lead Copley to fourth girls golf crown in a row

By mikeb Published: September 18, 2007

The girls Suburban League Golf Tournament had a sense of deja vu -- with a twist.

The medalist was an Arison from Copley for the second consecutive year, yet this time it was the younger twin sister.

Copley senior Heather Arison won the individual title Tuesday by shooting a 1-over-par 73 at Barberton Brookside Country Club in Norton.

Carly Arison, last season's Suburban champion at Good Park Golf Course, placed second with a 79.

The Arison twins led the Indians to their fourth consecutive Suburban League title under the
guidance of coach Bill Rhoades.

"Four in a row is pretty awesome," Rhoades said. "I was pleased with the way we played. We had been struggling as a team lately. I thought today we kind of brought everything together. It was nice to see their hard work pay off."

Heather Arison parred 11 holes and birdied three: Nos. 2, 3 and 16. Carly Arison also had 11 pars and birdied No. 10.

Indians junior Molly Leonard (85) placed third with eight pars. Leonard said she is battling a sinus infection and was scheduled to go to the doctor after the meet Tuesday to see if she had mono.

Green (363) placed second, Revere was third (384) and Wadsworth (420) was fourth.

Green senior Amanda Spitzer (86) placed fourth and Bulldogs sophomore Sarah Allred (90) was fifth. Revere junior Hanna Gabriel (91) was sixth.
