+ LRH athletic department to host golf outing
The Lakewood Ranch High athletic department will host the 2013 Mustangs Golf Classic May 18, at the Legacy Golf Club at Lakewood Ranch.
The four-person scramble will begin with a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m.
Cost is $100 per person and includes golf, on-course contests, lunch, an awards reception, silent auction, door prizes and raffles. Checks should be made payable to Lakewood Ranch High School.
Hole, awards and premier tournament sponsorships also are available and range from $100 to $3,000.
Proceeds from the event go toward annual sports expenses for all of Lakewood’s athletic teams.
The idea for the golf outing developed earlier this year, after athletic director Shawn Trent and softball coach Tony Cummins were discussing the Manatee County School Board’s current economic status.
“I offered to spearhead this to make sure that the quality of our athletic department did not have to suffer,” Cummins says. “Last year, we reached a goal that no other school in the state had ever accomplished. It would be foolish to let that go.”
Lakewood was named the 2011-12 Class 6A Academic and Athletic State Champions.
The school hopes to have 144 golfers participate in the outing. Another golf outing is scheduled for August.
For information, contact softball coach Tony Cummins at firstname.lastname@example.org, or tournament manager Jackie Rak at 685-9336 or email@example.com.
