There’s been no shortage of golf this month! The golf team participated in five tournaments, Advancement hosted the 6th Annual Alumni and Friends Toronto Golf Tournament, and Form VI student Alfonso A. organized a golf fundraiser for the BCS Service Project in Senegal.
The golf team started the season off strong, finishing in second place at the Alexander Galt Regional High School Golf Tournament held at Milby Golf Club thanks in no small part to Sebastian C. scoring 81 points. The team took a break from ETIAC golf to participate in the Confederation High School Spring Classic, a 36-hole stroke play event held at the West Haven Golf and Country Club and the Firerock Golf Club in London, Ontario, where they continued to work on their skills. The team saw another second-place finish at the BCS Invitational this past Saturday but unfortunately fell short at the Stanstead Golf Tournament on Sunday. Despite Henry J. shooting a solid 79, they came in third.
As the team gears up for the ETIAC playoff finals on Wednesday at the North Hatley Golf Club, they’ll be practising every day in preparation. “The team is continuing to work hard and we have seen improvement at all levels,” said Coach Bray. “We hope to give both Stanstead and Galt a run for their money and all players will be working hard to make this their best tournament of the year.”
Form VI student Alfonso A., the lead scorer for the golf team, took a break from playing to organize his own tournament benefitting the BCS Service Project in Senegal earlier this month. Alfonso was able to recruit twelve participants to play in the Roberto Gutierrez Championship, fundraising just over $600. “I have always been passionate about golf and helping others so I thought I could combine the two and organize a golf tournament to raise funds for the village in Senegal where I had spent two weeks in a service trip,” Alfonso shared. “Everyone who played had a lot of fun and appreciated the initiative so I will probably organize the tournament once again next year.”
Two members from the golf team, Andrew D. and William Nicolas C., joined the Advancement team in Toronto yesterday for the 6th Annual Alumni and Friends Tournament at Devil’s Paintbrush. The event was hosted by Scott Abbott, BCS’67, alumnus and co-owner of Devil’s Paintbrush, in support of needs-based scholarships for BCS students. If you missed your chance to participate in the Toronto Golf Tournament make sure to mark your calendars for the upcoming 28th Annual BCS Fall Golf Tournament at Mount Bruno Country Club. This tournament is a great way to meet members of the BCS community while supporting scholarships and financial aid.
