TAC SHOOTS FOR THE GREEN
After a tasty lunch, hours of golf, refreshing hors d'oeuvres, and a reception ceremony, it became clear that the 2006 Trinity Athletic Club's (TAC) annual golf outing was another huge success.
A total of 112 golfers registered for the event this year. Overall, the golfers and sponsors raised $63,230 dollars. Proceeds from the outing are earmarked for TAC scholarships, which attract quality student-athletes to Trinity every year.
"We continue to be thankful for the loyal friends and supporters who take part in the TAC Golf Classic," said Jeff Raymond, athletics director. "The funds raised at this event provide a huge benefit to individual student-athletes and to our athletics programs."
During the 2005-06 school year, 25 athletes from 10 different sports benefited from these scholarships. Several athletes were on hand to assist with the event and to express their appreciation to the golfers.
"I had a great time," said Eric Lindemulder '05. "It was a blast seeing everyone again. The weather was perfect, and the course was excellent." This was the third year that the event was held at the Calumet Country Club in Homewood, Illinois.
Like last year, Providence Bank and Ozinga Bros., Inc. sponsored the event, allowing TAC to apply more of the dollars raised directly to the scholarship fund.
The winners in the four person scramble this year were: Don DeGraaf, Roger DeGraaf, Craig Porter, and Nick DeGroot, who collectively shot a 62. Henry Kamp, Bob Kamp ex'84, Bert Kamp '81, and Judy Vander Wall '85 had the lowest mixed score. Rich Ozinga '64 shot a 74, the lowest individual score.
