The 13th Annual Redskin Golf Tournament was held on Saturday, April 5 at the Black Creek Golf Course in Bryan County. Despite the inclement weather, 78 die-hard Redskin supporters and golfers showed up for the 9 a.m. shotgun start and battled the course and mother nature to help raise money for the Bryan County High School athletic department.
The event is traditionally the department’s biggest fundraiser of the year and this year was no exception. BCHS athletic director Ron Lewis said the final figures are not available yet because some of the sponsor money is still rolling in, but estimates the event to have raised around $10,000. He said he is very appreciative of the "faithful and generous participants that supported this year’s event."
"Considering the nasty weather conditions, I think the event turned out great," Lewis continued. "I really do appreciate everyone who came out and participated and the individuals and companies that sponsored holes and donated door prizes. The community truly answered the call to make this event a success."
The proceeds will go toward funding the various needs of BCHS athletics including uniforms, equipment and travel expenses.
First place winners of this year’s Redskin Tournament was the team of Jimmy Sutherland, Carl Webb and Dalton Nagle (gross score). The team of Adam Blocker, Randy Roderick and David Warnell picked up First place for Net score.
