Pingree senior captain and top golfer for the Higlanders, Alec Shelburne, will be a rock of stability for his team this fall. Shelburne kicks up a tuft of grass as he launches a chip shot towards the green at practice on Wednesday. Shelburne's father suffered through ALS and passed away when he was young, and his mother passed away last year after a long battle with cancer. DAVID LE/Staff photo. 9/3/14.
