Developing the Whole Child

Dominican College Delighted to Support Jake Speers


Jake Speers a Year 14 student leaving Dominican this year is all set to take up his Golf Scholarship to Millersville University, Pennsylvania.

As well as continuing with his academic studies in Psychology and Sports Journalism during his four-year scholarship Jake will also study all aspects of golf. He will spend most of his time during the week practising and developing his golf technique as well as taking part in tournaments throughout Pennsylvania.


To date Jake has had a very successful junior career; he is the current Ulster Series Winter Champion and was runner up in the Club Championship and the Senior Scratch Cup in Portstewart Club. He has also represented Ulster and was the youngest ever member of both the junior and senior cup teams. He has competed in tournaments all across Ireland in his young career. The scholarship will help him refine all aspects of his game and will hopefully lead to a long and successful golf career.


A delighted Jake explained, “I would also like to thank in a special way my principal Mr Lynch and the Board of Governors of Dominican College for their very generous financial contribution and I hope to keep in regular contact with the school to keep everyone updated on my progress.


“I travel next year at the end of June and start my first semester at the end of August studying Psychology! I get to spend the summer golfing and getting used to golf in the states. I am so excited to be able to take up this opportunity to further my dream of becoming a professional golfer. I would like to really thank my dad and my whole amazing family for always being there for me. I would also like to pay tribute to my local Portstewart Golf Club for giving me the opportunity to play in their teams and in particular Neil Morrison my junior convenor. I really look forward to representing them all in Philly.
