Earlier this month, senior golfer Michael Pelfresne recently won regionals with a score of 71. He will advance to sectionals at the end of October. Pelfresne started playing when he was seven years old, and he has continued to succeed in golf.

“ I love the sport because it is something I have had great success in,” Pelfresne said. It allowed him to make great friends and compete in a respectful way.

This year, Pelfresne continued to succeed by winning regionals.

“It felt amazing to win regionals,” Pelfresne said “I went into the tournament hoping to advance to sectionals and found myself in a position to win. It was really exciting and I was extremely happy with the way I played.”

Since it’s Pelfresne’s last season and he doesn’t have plans to play in college, winning regionals is important to him.

“This season meant a great deal to me. It was my last year playing and I wanted to play my best golf and compete.”
