October 17, 2013 -- Glens Falls junior Alex Gibson is Section 2’s golf champion for the third straight year!
“I do not believe this has been a feat accomplished yet in Section 2 class B...until now,” said Varsity Golf Coach Stephen Zurlo. “Gibby was a medalist at Ballston Spa Country Club, firing a 76 to win back-to-back-to-back!”
Following the Section 2 championship, Alex headed to Orchard Creek for a two-day state qualifying tournament. “In order to play the second round you must survive the cut to 16 players,” explains Coach Zurlo. “Thursday, the cut goes to 9 who then represent the section as the state team.” Alex shot a 78 on day one, followed by a 75 on day two.
“Gibby curved and carved his Titleist around the Orchard
where the apples are easy pickin' but the course is not as
easy as apple pie!” continued an enthusiastic Coach Zurlo. “He
managed not only his emotions but also his muscle twitching
putter with ‘major' maturity.”
