NEISD hosts swing for the cure golf tournament

Brackenridge Golf Course was a sea of pink during the North East Girls’ Golf Tournament.  There were 16 of the top girls’ golf programs in the state participating in the “Swing for the Cure” golf tournament, a fundraiser for breast cancer research.   State individual and team champions pooled their efforts to raise at least $250. Overall, the tournament raised $3,000 for Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

NEISD coaches Randy Spivey of Churchill High School and Brent McCuiston of Reagan High School encouraged each person gathered in a circle to remember someone in their family diagnosed with cancer.  It was a moving moment as mothers stood by daughters, and each person locked arms in a moment of silence to remember and to dedicate their efforts to something bigger than a sport.

After 54 holes of play, Allen High School came out on top, followed by Lake Travis High School, Westlake High School, and Johnson High School in fourth place.  Reagan came in seventh, MacArthur was ninth, and Churchill eleventh.  In the individual scores Kristin Gillman of Lake Travis shot 194, Maddie Szeryk of Allen came in at 199, Jordy LaBarbera of Allen was at 204, Taylor Coleman of Johnson shot a 216, and Kristen Glesne of Reagan finished with a 219.
