Ridley High School
Mike started playing golf when he was 10. He's never had a lesson. He's not very big, but he has developed a beautiful swing. He made the team as a sophomore and was usually in the top 5. He just finished his senior season as a co-captain and number 2 on the team. He's hoping to continue his education at West Chester and hopefully his golf game, too. Anybody that's ever played golf knows how tough you need to be to play competitive golf, where there are no mulligans. You play it as it lies and you keep an honest score. Some players do take liberties in high school. Mike's seen it, but he has always played the right way.
Central Bucks High School South
Coming in as a freshman, Corey had qualified for the middle school state championship, but never placed. He had no major credentials to his name, but he ended up placing second at the Section meet, third at Districts, and came very close to qualifying at Regionals. He placed top 8 at NHSCA Nationals, earning All American, and went 7-1 at AAU Scholastic Disney Duals in June. Corey is constantly in the practice room or weight room, making him a contender this year at States.
William Tennent High School
Devon loves softball and would love to continue to play in college. She is not only an excellent softball player, but also excels at swimming and volleyball. After she suffered an injury that prevented her from playing volleyball this year, she started an assistant athletic training program with the help of the school's athletic trainer. This program has her and other students shadowing the athletic training staff for various sporting events. The program is also helping her gain experience towards her goal of becoming a Physician's Assistant.
