New Men's and Women's Golf Head Coaches Announced

New head coaches are bringing their expertise to the men's and women's Eagle golf teams.

Larry Herrmann, the head golf professional at the Miami Valley Golf Club, has been named the men's golf head coach. Herrmann, who has been with the Miami Valley Golf Club for three years and a PGA professional for 36 years, said his knowledge of the course and the sport will be assets to the team.

"The boys have already been practicing," Herrmann noted. "I'm teaching them while they're practicing and that's a big plus for them.

"Coming from Columbus, I wasn't aware of CJ at first," Herrmann continued. "A lot of Miami Valley Golf Club members are from CJ and have a strong support for the school, so I'm looking forward to being a part of the community and a good year."

Todd Shuttleworth, previously the head varsity golf coach at Greenon High School, has been named the women's golf head coach. Shuttleworth, an Ascension parishioner, has a daughter who will be attending CJ next year.

"I'm very excited because CJ has had a great women's golf program," Shuttleworth said. "I'm very excited to get involved and continue the great tradition."

Shuttleworth said while his daughter plans to be on the swim team, he's looking forward to having an even bigger part in the CJ community.

"What really excites me about the school is to get involved in the Catholic community here," Shuttleworth noted.

The women's golf team had another successful season in the fall of 2016 by advancing to the Division II State Golf Championship for an eighth consecutive season. The team placed 6th overall.
