David Boote makes the grade & team service project

Some recent news on the break about the team:

1.  DAVID BOOTE MAKES THE GRADE --- Golf Week recently graded out the top freshman across the country and David earned top marks with his fine fall season. Here's what they had to say about David ... we hope his school marks are nearly this good.

David Boote, Stanford

Golfweek/Sagarin rank: 18
Prerequisites: The Surrey, England, native won the Welsh Boys National U-18 Championship and was captain of the 2011 Great Britain and Ireland team at the Jaques Leglise Trophy.
First semester report: Boote racked up three top 10s in four tournaments this fall. He was T-7 at the Olympia Fields/Fighting Illini Invitational, T-3 at the Pac-12 Preview and T-9 at the Gifford Collegiate. His fourth start wasn’t too bad, either, as he finished T-13 at the U.S. Collegiate. His 71.3 stroke average is second on the team behind Patrick Rodgers (70.4).
Final grade: A
2.  SERVICE PROJECT - The team participates in a service project at a Boy's/Girl's Club in East Palo Alto.  Here's a photo of team members with the women's water polo team and a December 5th response to each team member from the organizer after their work was done.  Well done team!

"We hope you all had a great experience at the GOALS/Boys & Girls Club program last night.  I've already gotten some really positive feedback from the organizations about how much of an impact you spending the afternoon with the kids had!  They are all talking about how they want to be student-athletes at Stanford, which is helping their coaches teach them goal-setting skills."
