Our golf team has made some big strides the past couple of weeks. The team is working hard, dropping their scores and are more focused on drills and the things they need to do to get better. We had our first individual tournament champion, Baillee Watt who out lasted the other ladies to claim her first title. There was much excitement with Braeden MacDonald making his first Hole in One. Good things are happening for this team. ”
