Demonstrating resilience in the face of adversity, Elwood-John H. Glenn High School’s boys varsity golf team golfers showed tremendous perseverance this year following the loss of their beloved coach Joe Pace, who died July 23 after a courageous battle against cancer.
Elwood’s team, who were league co-champions last season with Huntington, wrapped up an amazing season with an impressive run, finishing in second place behind Commack with a 7-3 record, the same record as last year. Guided by coach Charlie Rogener, five out of six John Glenngolfers advanced to the Suffolk County individual tournament. As a team, they finished second in league play and advanced through two opponents – including No. 2 seed Bay Shore – in the countywide team tournament until eventually falling to county champions Comsewogue.
