Question: How was the Legacy Hills tournament?

“We played State Preview this past weekend and did not play very well. It was a really hard tournament. We just need to play better with districts coming up, mainly focusing on our game as individuals and as a team.

Question: How was the Brookhaven tournament?

“I didn’t play in that tourney. It was on Monday,  JV and Varsity won, but I didn’t play because the top 5 played over the weekend and we couldn’t play again. I bet it would have been a really fun and rewarding experience.”

Question: How can you improve as a player and help your team through the downs?

“Although it’s the common answer, practice leads to success. Also, when I play with confidence and poise, I see that same attitude reflected in my teammates. For example this past tournament when we got 9th, it was a heartbreaking thing for all of us, yet the fact that the competition was very good inspires us to work even harder next time.”

Upcoming Events:

  • Jesuit’s Next Tournament will be on Monday, March 2 hosted by District Preview at the Legacy Hills course.
