Stanstead Journal - - SPORTS - Robert Fisk, Spe­cial col­lab­o­ra­tion

TheAlexan­der Galt Piper Golf team com­pleted a per­fect ETIAC golf sea­son Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon at the Milby Golf Club by win­ning their fourth ma­jor tour­na­ment of the sea­son. The win also pro­pelled the Pipers to claim their sec­ond league ban­ner in as many years.

Galt en­tered the fi­nal ma­jor with a 35-stroke lead over Stanstead Col­lege and 38 over BCS. The boys from Galt ended up win­ning the fi­nal tour­na­ment by 3 shots over the sec­ond place Spar­tans. Grad­u­at­ing se­nior An­thony Gos­selin got the boys from Galt go­ing by win­ning his third con­sec­u­tive low gross tro­phy for the best score. Vet­er­ans Jakob La­plante, Liam Pankovitch and Matthew Lit­tle­john fol­lowed Gos­selin’s lead by post­ing some good scores of their own to help the team to victory.

The Pipers took a six-stroke lead af­ter the open­ing tour­na­ment at the Cowansville Golf Club. They ex­tended their lead to 23 strokes af­ter dom­i­nat­ing at the Old Lennoxville Golf Club and then won at the Duf­ferin Heights Golf Club by 12 more to set the stage for the fi­nals at Milby.

Gos­selin, La­plante and Pankovitch will grad­u­ate this June, but they left their mark as Lit­tle­john will help lead a younger team next year that has lots of prom­ise in Michael Brazel, Shawn Ro­bil­lard, Oiliver Gre­nier.

Thank you to the four golf clubs for host­ing the young ETIAC golfers.

The Galt Pipers Golf Team, An­thony Gos­selin, Jakob La­plante, Matthew Lit­tle­john and Liam Pankovitch (in al­pha­bet­i­cal or­der), had a per­fect ETIAC sea­son, win­ning four ma­jor tour­na­ments.
