Southeast Community College is
holding its first-ever SCC Golf Fundraiser to benefit the men’s and women’s basketball teams and men’s baseball team.
The event is scheduled for Sept.
21 at Hidden Acres Golf Course just southwest of Beatrice. The four-person
scramble begins with a shotgun start at 9 a.m. Check-in is at 8 a.m. Cost is
$60 per person or $240 per team and includes golf, a meal, pin prizes, and a
longest drive contest on the course. Persons who register as individuals will
be placed on a team.
Registration deadline is Sept. 13
or when the limit has been met. To register, contact Kelly Morgan at
402-228-8244. Make checks payable to SCC Continuing Education Division.
Hidden Acres Golf Course is
located at 5536 W. Lilac Road, Beatrice.
Vicki Wooton, head women’s basketball
coach, said funds raised would go toward student-athlete scholarships and some
equipment for the three teams. Since SCC competes in Division II of the
National Junior College Athletic Association, the maximum scholarship it can
award is tuition, books and fees. That means all players must pay room and
board, and most Storm athletes are not on a maximum scholarship. Walk-on
athletes also play key roles on SCC athletic teams, and most of those
student-athletes do not receive much in the way of scholarship dollars.
