West Orange High School Senior Tyler Galantini Signs with Wagner College
WEST ORANGE, NJ - West Orange High School Golf star, senior Tyler Galantini, signed with Wagner College on Nov. 26.
"I am getting a partial athletic scholarship at Wagner," began Galantini, who attended Pleasantdale (now Kelly) Elementary, Edison, and Liberty Middle Schools, "and I plan to major in Business Administration."
"Tyler is entering his fourth season as a varsity starter," noted Golf Coach Bill Urbanski, "and he leads by example on and off the course."
His stats are impressive by any standard:
Galantini calls golf "an amazing game," and at 17, has already been playing for 14 years.
"My Dad taught me how to play golf when I was three," Galantini explained, "started taking lessons when I was six, and was in my first tournament at seven."
"I would love to thank Mr. Moore, Mr. Bligh, and the Library Media Center for making this signing possible," noted Galantini, "and I would also love to thank Coach Urbanski for all of his help and support these past four years."
