Senior Golfer Ties for Win at Tourney

J. Schneider, Adviser

Senior varsity golfer, Reese Tortone, placed  1st at the tournament at The Wilderness in Lake Jackson on Monday, Oct. 10 with a score of 71.

“The year, everyday at least 3 hours a day, 30 hours a week, I have been practicing,” said Tortone.

The Wilderness tournament in Lake Jackson was Tortone’s first tournament of the year.

“I know I had about a 3 shot lead after about 7 holes and then did not do well, and I almost holed out and had a tap in birdie to win,” said Tortone.

The season, which started last week and ends in March, is a long haul for the Golf Team with a tournament about every 3 weeks playing about 6 tournaments a season.

Tortone added, “I will just keep practicing and the one day I take off from practice, is a day where someone else gets better than me.”
