    The Sports Boss

    It was Sunday afternoon and my television was turned to CBS (in High-Definition, of course). I watched with joy as Tiger Woods made his charge, only to falter on the back nine and lose what would have been his fifth green jacket. I watched an unknown rookie, Charl Schwartzel, win his first major championship. He lived out the dream that so many children have had by draining a birdie to win the Masters at the Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia. He played the round of his life and made the impossible possible; the unforeseeable inevitable; the dream a reality. This got me thinking—what would be my dream 18? I set the criteria for three playing partners, one entire golf course, and the drink of choice.

    Judge not a Book by its Cover, nor a Player by His Jersey

    I had the chance to sit down with goalie and captain of the Lacrosse Team, Jake Goodelman ’11, and meet the man behind the uniform. In that time, I met a genuine guy who worked his way into law school and broke the typical “lax bro” mold. He says his greatest moment at PC was being named captain by the Head Coach Chris Burdick at the beginning of the season. Last week, he was named to Big East Lacrosse Weekly Honor Roll. Here is what Goodelman had to say:

    Masters Tourney Renews Passion for Golf

    Many years ago, one man had a dream—a vision. And today his dream has augmented itself into one of the most special sporting events in the world. In the early 1930s, Bobby Jones, who is perhaps the most extraordinary and iconic golfer of all time, alongside Clifford Roberts and Alister MacKenzie, turned his vision of a golf club and golf tournament unlike any other into what is now regarded as the most prestigious event in professional golf: the Masters Tournament.

    Tennis Team Picks up Solid Back-to-Back Wins

    The old saying, “March comes in like a lion, and out like a lamb,” was reminiscent for the Women’s Tennis Team. Coming off a few tough opponents, the Friars looked to have the “lamb” part of March. The Friars played host to Sacred Heart and UConn, and looked for some points. The Friars got a good start from their top two singles players as Marisela Aviles-Duron ’13 bested her foe by a score of 6-3, 6-4, and teammate Maria Clara Bernardez ’14 held off her opponent by a final score of 6-1, 6-4. The two have been hot all year long and have provided a much-needed spark from the younger players. Still, the Friars fell to Sacred Heart by a final score of 5-2.
