Before Columbia: Perna looks to join the Columbia squad after a four-year high school career where he served as team captain as both a junior and senior and held the lowest stroke average on the team in each of his final three season. Named a four-time scholar athlete, Perna finished third at the Vinoy Classic, second at the Baker Bulldog Invitational and carded a career-low 64 as a sophomore. Other accolades for Perna include a second-place finish at the 2015 Ryan Wells Junior Classic on Nov. 26-27 as well as an 18th-place finish at the FJT Boys Junior Amateur Championship on July 13-16, 2015. Perna was also able to finish two strokes under par in the final round of the AJGA Puerto Rico Junior Open presented by EaglesDream Golf Academy last January, finishing the event in 27th overall. Set to join the School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) this Fall, Perna has not decided on a major at this time.
