The Chicopee High Golf team were represented today at the PVIAC Boys Golf Invitational at the Crumpin-Fox Golf Club by a pair of underclassmen in Logan Los and Spencer Clark. While they did not bring home the championship, they did show that the future for the Pacers is bright.
The Crumpin-Fox Golf Club was ranked the best public course in Massachusetts by New England Golf Monthly’s 2017 Best in Golf Awards. The track was once in the prestige top 100 lists of golf courses in the country. From the regulation tees the course plays 6508 yards, making it one of the longer courses on the Western Mass. circuit.
Coach Paul Chmura had nothing but praise for his your golfers, “I’m a proud coach today. Logan Los and Spencer Clark represented themselves, their team, their school and their city today in a tremendously positive and classy way. In addition to the way they carried themselves, they played very well. As a team playing best ball format (take the best score of the 2 players on each hole) they shot 91 at Crumpin Fox, a course which is one of the most difficult in the region, and the weather conditions were tough as it was cold and rained for a good part of the day. Those factors alone would of been tough enough, but it was also a course neither Logan nor Spencer had ever seen/played the course before. The highlight of the day had to be on the par 3 third hole. Logan’s tee shot lipped out for a near hole in one! He made the putt for birdie. While that was their highlight of the day, my highlight was seeing them come off the course smiling and excited from the fun they just had. In what could have been a very intimidating environment (Logan a sophomore and Spencer a freshman, playing among many seniors who had been there before), both players played hard and had fun.In what has been a tough year both as a team and individually in terms of wins and losses, today was a major victory and planted the seed in them both to work hard in the offseason to come back next season and do even better.”
