Graduating from Walpole High in the spring of 2014, Rob Boush went on to Johnson and Wales of North Miami to play Golf. Boush is now in his junior year, and in his third season with the team.
“College golf is much more demanding physically than high school golf,” said Boush.
“We have a strict workout program, and we usually have to take a plane or a coach bus to our tournament, whereas in high school it was either by bus or car.”
Boush is part of a 15 man roster, but only the top five players from each school can golf in a tournament. In each tournament, Boush consistently competes for the Wildcats.
“I have worked hard to position myself in the four spot for most events,” he said.
In Boush’s latest tournament, he shot his career best for a round with a 72 at the Dave Adamonis Sr. Invitational.
Boush aims to continue to succeed throughout his upcoming season.
After graduating from Walpole High School in the spring of 2014, Bri Doherty, the former captain of the girls lacrosse team, went on to play Division II lacrosse at Stonehill College. The former Bay State League All-Star for girls lacrosse is now in her junior year and will be starting her junior season as an attacker on March 5, at Rollins College.
“We have been looking pretty good so far this year, so I think it will be an intense game, hopefully with us coming on top,” said Doherty.
During her freshman debut, Doherty saw action in six games, finishing the season with three draw controls and helping the Skyhawks to a record of 15-5.
In her sophomore season, Doherty played in 13 games, scoring eight goals and adding one assist, in addition to winning five ground balls and four draw controls as the Skyhawks finished 9-9.
Doherty is studying Health Administration at Stonehill and looks forward to the commencement of her junior season.
“This season’s team has a lot of talent and chemistry which will help us win a lot of games,” she said.
Heading into her third season, Doherty continues to succeed at Stonehill.
