The week that was: Josh fired a one-under-par 70 at Gilbertsville GC last Monday to capture the Pioneer Athletic Conference individual boys golf championship. Ryan had four birdies and three bogeys in his solid round played in difficult, wet conditions at Gilbertsville, edging brother and Eagles teammate Caleb Ryan by one shot. The sophomore showed impressive touch and power with just 29 putts and a jaw-dropping drive at the No. 9 hole on the Red Course. Needing 270 yards to carry the water hazard, Josh pulled out his driver and went after it. “I scoped it from the tee and it was 270 to carry,” Ryan said on “I pulled out the driver and let it fly. It was probably the best ball I could have hit.” The Ryan brothers were among 18 PAC golfers qualifying for the upcoming District 1 championship at Turtle Creek GC in Limerick.
