Pingree senior captain and top golfer for the Higlanders, Alec Shelburne, will be a rock of stability for his team this fall. Shelburne watches his shot off the tee at practice on Wednesday afternoon. 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.
