The Everest Collegiate Boys Soccer team played a round of FootGolf at White Lake Oaks Golf Course, Sept. 4.
The activity allowed the boys to grow as a team in a competitive environment. Playing in groups of two, the boys competed against each other to score the lowest round. Special mention goes to Shane Dolan for the low round on the day, Lucas Cross for Closest to the Pin, and Jack Cross for Longest Drive.
FootGolf is a combination of soccer and golf, being more closely related to golf. It is complete with bunkers and other hazards that the team has yet to come across on a regulation soccer field.
The team finished the week with a hard fought victory over Bishop Foley last Thursday, 3-1. The win brings their record to 2-0 in Catholic League play.
They head to Detroit Cristo Rey on Thursday and host Austin on Monday, Sept. 17.
