This week’s Goshen Gladiator Student-Athletes of the Week are varsity golfers Brandon Fuentes, Olivia Klugman, and Cassidy Lucas.
Senior Brandon Fuentes has been a member of the varsity golf team since he was a freshman. He has been a part of the 2014 and 2016 Division III championship teams. Brandon has brought his average down from 46 last season to 44 this season. Coach Tether describes Brandon as “a model student and co-captain” and credits his improvement to year round indoor and outdoor training. Brandon’s for this season is to qualify for OCIAA’s and the Section IX tournament, as well as winning another Division III Team title for the Gladiators. Brandon is also a member of the Leo Club. He plans on attending Hartford University and majoring in Architecture in the fall.

Olivia is also a member of the varsity swim team and the Mock Trial Team that just won the County Championship. She also plays the viola in the school orchestra.
