Following the tournament, golfers enjoyed dinner in the pavilion at Eagle Hills catered by Eddie’s Catering, followed by award presentations and raffle drawings.
The tournament winners were a foursome of Gross Catholic Alumni, Matt McWilliams, Class of 2004; Justin Pogge, Class of 2003; Kyle Longenecker, Class of 2004; and Bart Protzman, Class of 2004.
