   Last weekend the Veterans Memorial boys golf team went to Victoria, Texas to participate in the Victoria Golf Tournament, featuring 3 schools in the CCISD district and 4 out of district schools.

    The tournament started Friday morning and went on until Saturday, Veterans started off slow, but came back towards the end and ended up placing first overall. Senior Michael Barrera placed 1st out of all the Veterans golfers, shooting  a 75-71. Junior Nico Trijillo placed 2nd shooting 81-81.

    “Being at the course for that long, and still being able to place first out of all the players was insane,” Barrera said.

    There are three upcoming golf tournaments happening this month before winter break. From Dec. 7 to Dec. 8, there will be the Varsity boys and girls  tournament. The JV boys golf tournament will be in Rockport on Dec. 10 from 7:00 5:00 p.m., and to finish off the 2018 year, the varsity girls golf preview tournament will be from Dec. 14 to Dec. 15.

    “We’re participating in a lot of tournaments to make sure our athletes are still sharp when they get back from break,”  boys golf coach Glenn Holman said.
