Even though the SSM Golf Center of Excellence is taking the weekend off, its golfers are still making headlines. SSM golfers sit in the top two spots in both the Boys 16-19 age group and the Girls 13-18 age group in the national standings for the FCWT Golf Tour. Jake Curwin holds the top spot in the 16-19 age group with his victory this past weekend at Cog Hill Golf and Country Club, his 2nd place finish at Purdue University, and his 13th place finish at Notre Dame. He is leading SSM teammate Nathan Zhao who holds the second spot by 812.5 points. Zhao has put together a solid fall with a pair of 3rd place finishes at Purdue University and the University of Notre Dame combined with a 13th place at Cog Hill. Camden Nierman sits in 5th place in the overall standings with a 4th place finish at Cog Hill and his 6th place finish at Purdue. Sam Eisenhuth is in 8th place overall with his best finish coming at Notre Dame in 11th place.
Sydney Brickey has the top honors in the Girls 13-18 age group and leads fellow SSM Teammate Sophia Hill by 200 points. Brickey’s latest tournament at Purdue was her first victory at a national tournament and combined with her 3rd place finish at Notre Dame is able to give her the edge. Sophia Hill is in 2nd place overall with a pair of 3rd place finishes at Cog Hill and Purdue University combined with her 6th place finish at Notre Dame. Nicole Pelling is in 8th place overall with a 4th place finish at Cog Hill and a 5th place finish at Purdue University.
Shane Hoben is in 14th place overall in the Boys 13-15 age group. His finishes of 5th place at Cog Hill, 9th at Purdue, and 11th at Notre Dame are keeping him in contention in that age group. Shane is coming into his own and continually improving and is looking to be in contention for a victory very soon in the horizon. Golfers are taking a little break from the FCWT Tour and will be competing next on that tour at Mission Hills, CA on December 1st and 2nd. SSM Golfers will be competing in their first Plantations Tour Event of the season this next weekend at the University of Kentucky on November 10th and 11th.

SSM Golfers made a charge on the final day of the Plantation’s Junior Golf Tour TPC Deere Run Tournament on Sunday. Led by Phillip Baumberger’s 73 which was good enough to move him into a tie for 4th place in the 15-17 age group. Nathan Zhao playing in the group directly behind Baumberger finished with a final round 74 to move him into a tie for 6th place. Both golfers were in a tie for 10th place after their first round 77′s and knew they had an opportunity to make a move with good rounds. The wind and colder temperatures on Sunday made the scoring conditions tougher but both played solid all day and avoided any major mistakes. Coach Higdon is extremely proud of both golfers on their consistent play all weekend in the great field of players from the Midwest. This is Baumberger’s low competitive round for the season and Zhao equalled is low round for the year. Coach Higdon had the following to say, “It was a fun day to sit on the side and watch the great play between both of our golfers. I am happy for Phillip and he should be proud of his weekend. He has worked extremely hard all year and has incorporated a lot of changes in his swing. After spring break everything seems to be clicking for him and he is striking the ball the best I have seen. His 73 was a great round today and both golfers can carry a lot of momentum into our final tournament of the season in two weeks at Whistling Straits.”

Life in the Golf COE after 11 months
It was a successful weekend back for both the boys and girls soccer programs at Shattuck-St. Mary’s. Two of the boy’s teams traveled to Milwaukee and Chicago to play in two Development Academy games, while the U18YS team had two friendly home games. The girls competed in the Jefferson Cup in Richmond, VA over the weekend.
Girls Review: Jefferson Cup In their opening game of the 2012 Jefferson Cup, the U18 girls took down Jersey United in convincing fashion, winning 5-1. After a three week spring break and four weeks since their last game, Coach Linenberger was very pleased with his teams performance. “We did well keeping possession and created numerous goal scoring chances. We could have easily scored 10-12 goals” said Linenberger. In their second game of the tournament, SSM came out against the Arundel Vipers and won another convincing game 4-0. According to Linenberger, “The second game of a three game weekend is always the most difficult and we were slow to start. We kept the ball and scored on the chances we created. We did well to get a shutout.” Playing a third game in three days, for the time since January, the Shattuck girls came out against Oakwood a bit tired and heavy legged. Oakwood, a strong team who won both of their first two games, put the pressure on Shattuck in the first half. “We had a good talk at half-time and really responded to play a very good second half. Though we lost 0-2, we played well, kept care of the ball, showed good fight, spirit and intensity” said Linenberger. Game #1 : 1-0 Powell (22. Graybill, M.); 2-0 Fredette (30. Moss); 3-0 Ulrich (49. Sparrman)3-1 (60.); 4-1 Powell (69. Lundberg); 5-1 Powell (79. Goulet) Game #2: 1-0 Powell (20. Ulrich); 2-0 Powell (37. Graybill, S.); 3-0 Patterson (62.); 4-0 Powell (80. Moss) Game #3: 0-1 (42.); 0-2 (50)
Boys Review Saturday: The U18DA and the U16DA teams traveled to Milwaukee on Saturday to take on FC Milwaukee in their first Development Academy games of 2012. In the U18 game, Shattuck went down 0-1 early on, but soon responded with a goal from sophomore standout Ricky Lopez . Shattuck put the game out of reach at the end of the first half, with two goals coming in three minutes for Patrick Barnes and John Lujano . The game finished 3-1. In the U16 game, the trend continued with Shattuck going down 0-1 to FC Milwaukee, but storming back to finish the game 6-2. Three players doubled their goal tallies in this game. Heath Honold , Steve Eneme , and Neal Usry all netted a pair of goals. In the U18YS game, Shattuck took on Valley United from Minneapolis in a friendly game at home. The game started off with much of the possession going to the home team, although Valley United put loads of pressure on Shattuck two outside-backs. The teams went into halftime tied at 0-0. Substitute, Karl Frisk scored a back-post header ten minutes into the second half. That was the game winner, as Shattuck won 1-0. Sunday: The U18DA traveled to Chicago to take on the Chicago Sockers in their second DA game of the weekend. Not much to tell from this game as it was even across the board, with Shattuck edging the Sockers in scoring opportunities, but never converting. The game finished 0-0 with Dary Dewalt getting the shutout for Shattuck. The U16DA team was not as lucky to come out of Chicago with a point, as they lost to the Sockers 0-1. In a well played game, Shattuck gave up a goal about halfway through the second half. Shattuck had their fair share of scoring opportunities, but failed to convert. The best two chances came from Jose Ojeda in the 30th minute, who saw his shot sail over from close range, and in stoppage time of the second half Corey Cadeau just missed a diving header at the back post. Back in Minnesota it was a different story for the U18YS team who took on a weaker opponent in CC United, in their second friendly of the weekend. The scoring was opened up halfway through the first have and didn’t stop until the final whistle at 7-0. Next up for the the U18YS squad is a friendly this weekend against Minneapolis United, and then it is on to the 2012 Dallas Cup.
Weekend Review: March 17th-18th
Golfers wrapped up in Palm Desert, CA with many positives coming from the trip out west. The two-day tournament had weather conditions at each end of the spectrum. The first day was absolutely perfect with temperatures near 75 degrees and no breeze at all. The second round was a lot different with temperatures not getting over 60 degrees and the wind gusting in upwards of 40 mph. Nathan Zhao continued his strong play after coming off a victory in his last tournament this past December with a 2nd place finish in the Boys 13-15 age group. Zhao was tied with two other golfers for 2nd place after the first round and was only one shot off of the leader. He shot a 2nd round 84 that was good enough for sole possession of second place after completion of the tournament and two shots back of the leader. The Classic Club can be known for its tough playing conditions as it used to be a host course for the Bob Hope Classic but the brutally tough conditions caused the PGA Tour to reconsider and move to another location.
In the Boys 16-19 age group Jake Curwin made a considerable jump on the leader board during the second round. He started out the final day in 34th position with an opening round 83 but was able to keep his focus and come out hot on the final day. Curwin posted the 3rd lowest score of the day out of the 100 junior golfers that took to the course with a 79 in the brutally tough conditions. With that great final round he was able to jump 20+ positions on the leader board and finish in 13th place. Phillip Baumberger also moved up on the leader board on the final day with a round of 86 after an opening round 87 which put him in 33rd place overall.
Sydney Brickey finished in 13th place in the Girls 13-18 age group after fighting hard and holding her composure. She had an opening round 93 then followed that up with a final round 102.
