2014 PIAA Team Golf Championship

Posted in Junior Events/Results, PIAA on October 23, 2014 by Chris Roselle


The PIAA AAA State Team Championship now resides at 17th and Girard!  Congratulations to the St. Joe’s Prep golf team on winning the overall team title yesterday at Heritage Hills Golf Resort and Conference Center in York, Pa.  Finishing with low man honors on the Hawks team was sophomore Jack Mitchell, whose round of 79 included a Hole-in-One on the par three 5th hole.  All four of the remaining team members (Paul Mauer, Nick Calabrese, Alex Butler and Mike Burns) each came in with identical 81′s.  Their 322 total was good enough for a three stroke victory over Scranton Prep in what proved to be very difficult playing conditions.  As a St. Joe’s Prep Alum (Class of 1995) and a former member of the golf team it brings me great pride seeing these juniors bring the state title home.

Swing on along with the Crimson
Swing on along with the Grey

Roll up the score once again
For St. Joe’s Prep

With a hip, hip, hip hooray!

The game is ours for the winning
The day is dark for the foe
So fight team fight
And we’ll bring home tonight
A victory for old St. Joe’s!

Meghan Fahey – AJGA Leadership Links Top Fundraiser

As a follow-up to a blog post from a few months ago I wanted to CONGRATULATE Overbrook GC’s Meghan Fahey on being recognized as the top national fundraiser for the 2014 AJGA Leadership Links program.  Meghan raised an incredible $14,700 for the Michelle Deasey ’17 Memorial Scholarship Fund.  This scholarship fund was created in memory of my cousin, Michelle Deasey, who passed away during the winter of 2007 from a rare liver disease.  Michelle, whose smile could absolutely light up even the darkest room, was one of Meghan’s closest friends and our entire family is so proud of what Meghan was able to accomplish.

I am sure Michelle is looking down right with that infectious smile all aglow on her face.  Her life, though short, brought pure joy and utter happiness to not only our entire family but to her friends and classmates at the Episcopal Academy.  I know that Meghan Fahey will continue to honor Michelle’s legacy because that’s the type of person Meghan is and because Michelle was that special of a human being.

Because of her fantastic fundraising efforts Meghan will be honored at the Rolex Junior All-America Awards Banquet scheduled for November 23rd at PGA National Resort and Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.  If that wasn’t special enough Meghan will also have the opportunity to meet with Jack and Barbara Nicklaus before a round at The Bear’s Club, one of Mr. Nicklaus’s most famous designs.  And finally, Meghan will also get the chance to play six holes with PGA superstar, Rickie Fowler, at the Medalist Golf Club on November 22nd.
