Senior Shane DeVincenzo tied for second place in the New York State High School golf championships held at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Course at Cornell University this past weekend. There were 99 players in the field, representing the best student golfers from all 11 sections of the state. He shot 73-75 and made a great birdie on 18 to grab his share of second place.

By finishing in the top six, Shane qualified for the prestigious Federation Tournament at the Bethpage Black Golf Course on June 9. There he will be among the top 24 players from public, private, city and independent schools in the state.

“Shane worked tirelessly for five years and it all culminated with an outstanding performance,” coach Chuck Ruoff said. “He represented Port Jefferson and all of Suffolk County like a champion.”

Shane will continue his academic and athletic career at Fairfield University this fall. “It has been a privilege to coach him over the past five seasons and he will be dearly missed,” Mr. Ruoff added.
