Savio 2017 Golf Season Comes to a Bittersweet End

April 25, 2017

The 2017 St. Dominic Savio Golf season comes to an end at the TAPPS Regional Golf Tournament at the Fossil Creek Golf Club in Ft Worth, TX.

Regional qualifiers:

Eagles – Brandon Brown and Z-Je Marcella

Lady Eagles – Connor Neill, Shelby Ferraris, Katie Brooks, Andrea Rodriguez and Sydney Martinez were challenged to the beautiful and difficult Fossil Creek Golf course. 

The Eagles played a very smooth round with both shooting a very nice score of 84.  They overcame mental adversities and challenges the game provided with bad bounces and a few errant shots. However, over the course of 18 holes both Brandon and Z-Je kept playing and trusting in their preparation to post their scores.

The Lady Eagles also played their best, however, found that sometimes the course has other ideas and on this day Fossil Creek’s teeth was a little too much for our Ladies. They played well and kept swinging the way they practice. There was disappointment and frustration but all in all they came away knowing that with more practice and effort there is another day to post a better score.

The 2017 season had many ups and downs very much like a round of golf. The bitter is knowing that the season is over for the year but the sweet is looking forward to summer golf and rounds with newly made friends. For the coaches, it is much the same bitter sweet. For Coach Becerra it is having to say, “So Long” to Senior Ms. Connor Neill.  Ms. Neill ends her 4 year Savio Golf career as Coach Becerra’s third 4-year letterman.  

"Connor Neill, I wish you all the best as you leave us to become an Ole Miss Rebel. Coach Jameson and I are looking forward to the 2018 season and making a strong run to State."
