Brendan Patton is from a true St. Rita Family. His brother Jack graduated in 2008, his father Mike was previously employed by the school and still does photography for special events and athletic teams, and his mother Kim is heavily involved as a parent and just chaired the very successful Winterfest celebration in January.
Brendan, who is a four-year member of St. Rita's Golf Team, has been a big part of the program's resurgence under the guidance of Head Coach Pete Godfrey. Patton was a huge part of the team's first ever appearance in the IHSA state sectional series in 2017, and he was an individual state qualifier as well during his junior campaign.
He followed his strong junior season with a terrific senior campaign as well as he shot a 75 in the regional, which was good enough for a 3rd-place finish individually.
Last week Patton signed his letter of intent to continue his golf career at Holy Cross (Notre Dame) where he plans on majoring in business.
