I caught up with golfer and team captain Charles Hericks as golf season is now in full swing at Lakewood High.

Q: How has the season been going so far?

A: “Terrible, we haven’t won a match yet.”

Q: How has your play developed through your 4 years playing for Lakewood Golf?

A: “I’ve gotten good and learned how to swing.”

Q: Do you have any special match day routines?

A: “I wear the same socks every match and I never wash them. They are my lucky charm.”

Q: Lowest personal score?

A: “36, that’s PGA level.”

Q: What is your preferred club of choice?

A: “A lob wedge for sure.”

Q: How does it feel to win Athlete of the Week?

A: “You know it’s a real honor, to represent my school in this way.”

The varsity squad has upcoming dual matches versus Westlake and North Ridgeville, with the pivotal Southwest Conference Championship approaching quicker than ever at the end of September.
