Spotswood Golf Defeats Middlesex


MIDDLESEX, NJ - Spring sports got into full swing this week. However, Mother Nature wasn't kind. Cool temperatures and rain have made life difficult for high school spring athletes throughout the Garden State. Yet, despite the strange weather, the Spotswood High School golf team ended their first week of the season with a 104-105 win over Middlesex High School on Friday, April 7.

Middlesex's Joey Ventulo was the match's top finisher with a score of 23. The Blue Jays Ryan Reynolds and Spotswood's Blake Janeczek both tied for second place with 24. The Chargers Joe Angeloni finished third with a score of 25 while Spotswood's Trevor Jozefowicz was fourth with 26. Middlesex's Tom Tullow and Spotswood's Mike Longan rounded out the top five finishers. Both golfers had scores of 29.

The close win against Middlesex evened the Chargers' early season record at 2-2. Spotswood opened up the 2017 golf season with a 179-225 win over Bishop Ahr High School. The team then dropped their next two matches, losing to JP Stevens High School 175-179 and Metuchen High School 192-103 before rebounding against Middlesex.

Weather won't be an issue when the team hits the Rossmoor Golf Course in Monroe on Monday, April 10 for a 4 p.m. tee off with South River High School. Temperatures are forecast to be in the 70s with warm sunshine.

In Cold Blood by Truman Capote

In Cold Blood by Truman Capote (Random House, 1965)


In Cold Blood is, quite simply, the grand-daddy of true crime writing, dubbed by Capote, himself, as the first non-fiction novel (although Norman Mailer argued the point when he published The Executioner's Song in 1979.) The conditions under which I read In Cold Blood for the first time were pretty weird, which was another ...
