Golf grows on El Paso-Gridley’s Colmone
Ken Colmone never played golf for Hall High School, receiving nine varsity letters in football, basketball and baseball. When he moved to El Paso to take a teaching job, they built a home on the El Paso Golf Course. His oldest son, Jake, took a liking to golf and El Paso-Gridley High School needed a golf coach. He took the job, or as he readily admits, no one else wanted it.
It’s been good move for both parties. On Saturday, Colmone’s EPG golf squad captured the IHSA 1A State Championship in Bloomington. The Titans defeated Winnetka North Shore Country Day by nine strokes (647-656) to take the title.
What made that feat most special is he got to share the moment with his son, Kyle, who as a sophomore was the No. 2 man for the Titans at state with a 162.
