IRSC Names Bill Morosco Head Coach of Men’s Basketball

Bill Morosco

Fort Pierce - A new era for Indian River State College (IRSC) sports begins on Monday, June 27, when Bill Morosco takes over as Head Coach of the storied IRSC Men’s Basketball program. The new coach steps into a program that has steadily risen to become an NJCAA national and FCSAA Region VIII powerhouse. The IRSC Pioneers have played in the Region VIII Championship and NJCAA National Tournament for two consecutive seasons, advancing to the Sweet 16 in 2022 and the Elite 8 in 2021.

Morosco, a native of Wellington, Florida, comes to IRSC from Garden City Community College (GCCC) in Kansas. In his first and only season at GCCC, Morosco’s team notched an impressive 22-10 overall record averaging 91.3 points per game. Before GCCC, Morosco was Head Coach at Independence (INDY) Community College of the Jayhawk Conference. His teams at INDY proved to be high-octane offensive squads averaging 90 points per game in 2020 and notching key victories over nationally ranked opponents while posting a 23-9 overall record.

“Coach Morosco possesses extensive knowledge of Region VIII basketball and an exceptional ability to recruit,” said IRSC Athletic Director Scott Kimmelman. “We are excited to have him back in Florida to lead and attract student-athletes to the IRSC program. We can’t wait to see where he will take the team next.”

Morosco spent time as an assistant at Barry University and Eastern Florida State College before leaving for posts in Kansas. He has a deep knowledge of the Florida High School Athletic Association coaching community.

IRSC welcomes Coach Morosco and his wife, Samantha, back home to the Sunshine State.

For the third year in a row, the Island Dunes Ladies Golf Association (IDLGA) held a fundraiser to benefit SafeSpace, which is the only state-certified domestic violence center serving the Treasure Coast. Fifty-two ladies gathered on March 16th, 2022 for “Chip in for SafeSpace,” an event enhanced by a St. Patrick’s Day theme, green decorations and a mimosa cart on the 6th hole.

The ladies enjoyed a round of golf, a delicious lunch at Pietro’s on the River, a silent auction, gift bag drawings and raffle. Sponsorships of holes and donations brought this year’s total contribution to $8,360. Over three years, IDLGA has raised a total of $27,360 for SafeSpace.

Dr. Teresa Albizu, CEO of SafeSpace, expressed appreciation for the ongoing support at the luncheon; and highlighted some of the many services provided to victims at SafeSpace, including the 24-hour hotline, emergency shelter, legal assistance, mental health counseling, financial literacy training, children’s protective services and youth prevention education programs.

“Your support means a lot to SafeSpace,” said Dr. Albizu, “because you understand the importance of our work in saving and changing lives here on the Treasure Coast. The pandemic has increased the incidence of domestic violence and our help is needed more than ever.”

The statistics of domestic violence are sobering and this group of women were honored to have the opportunity to support an organization that is protecting adult
victims and their children from physical and emotional abuse here in our community. Fifteen IDLGA members joined together in planning this event, which was led by Co-chairs Ellen Kelly and Christine Olazagasti along with the support of our golf Kathy Cassese.

For more information about SafeSpace, visit www.safespacefl.org or call (772) 223-2399. Help is available 24/7 by calling (772) 288-7023.

Let's Break it Down to Break 90

20 Sept First Tee Logo

Article by: Judy Alvarez Golf Academy
In many ways, the par on a hole is misleading and not especially relevant. Each hole holds a particular set of challenges you need to navigate. If you’re shooting in the 90s it helps to break that challenge down into three parts.

Golf Planning

If you’re shooting in the 90s, whenever you stand-up on the tee box, don’t think about the ‘par’. Look at what’s in front of you. Think back from the center of the green (from where you’re planning two-putts) and plot a journey of makeable shots.

Take Control Tiny Tweaks for Massive Gains

22 June Tiny Tweeks

In golf, there’s a lot we can’t control. Aspects like weather, pin location, hole elevation and turf conditions are what they are. But there is something we can control: how your equipment fits your swing, build and preferences. A few small changes can transform your enjoyment and performance.

Did you know?

If the face alignment on your putter is out by just 1°, you’ll likely miss a 10-foot putt, even with accurate aim.

A 0.05 increase in smash factor for a golfer with an average swing speed of 85mph, can add up to 10 yards to their drives.

A fitting is one of the best ways for us to identify the areas of your game that could benefit from slight adjustments. When last were you fitted?

Everyone gains
Skill level is not a determiner of who should get fitted. Every golfer benefits from a fitting, from complete beginner to life-long veteran. Why not experience the difference for yourself?

Avoiding Your Long Irons?

20 Sept First Tee Logo

Approach play becomes so much easier and more enjoyable when you’re confident with your longer irons. If your long irons are a constant struggle, let’s change that. Is there a swing change we could make? Or perhaps your lie angle is incorrect? Maybe hybrids would be better suited to your game?

Let’s figure out the best way to improve your approach play.

Maybe it’s not your fault

Sliced your drive? Hooked your iron shot? Missed the green from inside 100 yards? Sometimes the reason for these mishits isn’t your swing.

21 Sept GOlf 1

A driver shaft with the incorrect flex for you makes it difficult to square the club face at impact. That means more slices off the tee

21 Sept Golf 2

A lie angle that’s too upright for you can cause the club face to close at impact, resulting in hooked shots.

21 Sept Golf 4

There are many types of wedge shots that can be played within 100 yards. Playing with the right bounce and grind makes it easier to strike the ball cleanly.

Make the game easier
Golf’s tough enough as it is, why make it more difficult by playing with equipment that isn’t fitted for you? Let’s start by making sure you’ve got the basics, like lie angle and shaft flex, in place.
Get fitted

Sit Less, Swing Better Restore the Rhythm

Article by: Judy Alverez - First Tee

Is your swing feeling stiff? Are you sitting for several hours a day? Your shoulders could be part of the problem. The anatomical term for your shoulder blades is “scapulae”. Your upper arm bone – the humerus – connects to your scapula. They work together to help you make a full shoulder rotation and swing on plane. This interaction is called “scapulohumeral rhythm”.

20 Sept First Tee Photo

Sitting too much messes with this rhythm because it pulls your shoulders forward, disrupting the scapula muscles, causing them to tilt and become unstable. When this happens, your golf swing will be restricted and you may experience pain at your shoulder blades.
