CAPE ELIZABETH, Maine— The Southern Maine Community College Foundation and the SeaWolves Athletic Club hosted the 14th annual SMCC Athletics Golf Tournament at Purpoodock Golf Club on Tuesday, June 19.
Presented by Sodexo, the event featured a full field of 132 golfers with registration beginning at 8 a.m. and a shotgun best-ball format at 9 a.m. Stationed amongst the picturesque course were specialty holes that included prizes for a hole-in-one, a Vegas hole, a putting contest, the longest drive, and closest to the pin—new to this year’s tournament was a celebrity golfer appearance by SMCC Hall of Famer and USCAA national champion Tommy Stirling. Following the round was an awards ceremony and a lunch catered by Purpoodock.
The winning team was the foursome representing Sodexo. Dan Roy, Caleb Roy, Eric Lacroix, and Sam LeBlanc carded a tournament low 55 for the second consecutive year. Jared Lamey, Jared Gordon, Brent Cook, and Aaron Marks fired a 58 placing second (per the handicap hole); Doug Roberts, Steve Zinck, Andy Adams, and Joe Kane finished third also with a score of 56 and 16 under par.
All of the proceeds raised at the event will help fund the SMCC Athletics Department in its continuous effort to better the student-athlete experience.
Director of Athletics Matt Richards reflected, “A huge thank you to the gracious staff at Purpoodock, our volunteers, and to all of our sponsors for making this year’s event another success. The SeaWolves Athletic Club is grateful for all of the support received from the community—this to help fulfill our mission of providing the student-athletes of SMCC with a positive athletics experience.”
