NEW IBERIA – Thanks to the play of Jay Mendell and Kale Fontenot, Ascension Episcopal of Youngsville romped to its fifth straight Boys Division III championship here Tuesday at the Ochsner Health LHSAA State Golf Championships.
Mendell, last year’s runner-up, finished the two-day tournament with a 12-under-par 132 score – the lowest score in any division since the state tournament moved to Lafayette nine years ago. Fontenot finished only one stroke back with his own stellar 11-under-par 133 score, with those two finishing 14 strokes ahead of the rest of the individual field.
When it comes to our children, one of the most important gifts we can provide for them is opportunity. It not only prepares them for their future but also gives them the independence to discover and define who they are: who they want to be. Our faculty and staff focus on developing the whole child, with a curriculum designed to teach lifelong learning skills.
