Head Coach Bert Kovarik has been the head coach of Hawken Boys Golf for 14 years. During his tenure, the Hawks have won six league championships and had two state qualifiers. Coach K has been named Chagrin Valley Conference Coach of the Year six times.
While we always aim for CVC, sectional, district, and state championships, Hawken Golf is a character-first program. High school golf is a game with no officials – players must monitor their own play, scoring, and thus, integrity and Fair Play are of the utmost importance. Moreover, conduct, focus, and resiliency must also be in one’s bag if success is expected.
The Hawken Girls Cross Country team traveled to Walsh Jesuit to compete in the Pat Ritchie Cross Country Invitational. The girls competed well in the rain and on the muddy double loop course to finish second behind Warren Howland 75 to 78 points.
As Athletic Director Jim Doyle commented after the girls swim team won the State Championship for the 20th consecutive year on Friday, "It was a meet for the ages tonight, one to add to the incredible legacy of Hawken Swimming. It was a meet where our swimmers saw triumph, heartbreak, agony, and exhilaration."
