Blue Knights Support Athletics
The 2012 Blue Knight Golf Scramble took place on July 27 at the Woodland Golf Club. In spite of humid temperatures and occasional rain, the golfers had an amazing day on the links. Four-person teams competed in a best ball scramble, with opportunities to win prizes for side games like closest to the pin and longest drive.
During the outing, participants enjoyed a catered lunch from Rudy’s Smokehouse and special complimentary gifts on behalf of the Athletic Department.
Once play concluded for the day, participants gathered at the Woodland Clubhouse for an awards ceremony. This year’s event winners were: Jobie McCoy III, Jobie McCoy IV, Andrew Belliveau and Andy Heskett with a score of 56. They won a tiebreaker with the team of Jim Hilliker, Nick Sieg, Ken Day and Bill Montgomery, who also shot a 56 and took home 2nd place.
Winners of closest to the pin were Haley Ducey and Joshua Diemer. Longest drive winners included Betsey Beaver and Andrew Belliveau.
Donor support of the Blue Knight Golf Scramble provides the Athletic Department with financial assistance to support its vision of providing a competitive playing experience, modern facilities, personal growth, and community involvement for all student athletes.
