Cronin Signs Letter Of Intent

The second senior of the award-winning 2015 women's golf team signed her letter of intent on Tuesday, November 24.

Ellie Cronin '16 will be playing golf for Cleveland State University next year.

"I like that it's in the city," said Cronin. "My sister went there too so I think it's cool that I can have a shot to go where she went."

CJ women's golf coach George Menker '55 said Cronin was one of the top players he has seen in the women's golf program's entire existence.

"She is walking away with five school records - no other girl has done that," Menker noted. "She was co-captain the last two years. She has been a great leader."

This year, the women's golf team qualified for the state tournament for the seventh year in a row. Other accomplishments for the team this season included winning the GCLC, sectional and district tournaments. In their four years, the senior class had a record of 107-6. Cronin earned several individual awards this season including academic all-Ohio, southwest district player of the year, southwest district first team, GCL player of the year and GCL first team.

When thinking about her future team at Cleveland State, Cronin said, "I already knew a lot of the coaches and the other girls are nice, which is similar to the team at CJ."

Menker added, "I will miss her personality, her playing and being the team leader. She has been a super young lady."
