Ten Years of Golf Tournaments for Seahawk Boosters

On July 27th the Seward Seahawks Athletic Booster Club hosted their 10th annual golf tournament. The event was held at the Birch Ridge Golf Course in Soldotna, AK. The 56 golfers in attendance participated in a best ball tournament making it an enjoyable event for all skill levels of golfers.

The third place team was Marty Arnoldy, Megan Arnoldy, Elmo Lackey and Paula Saindon. There were longest drive contests for the men and women that were won by Gene Minden and Willow Hetrick and closest to the pin contests won by Cliff Draper and Willow Hetrick.
