Sam Houston's third Bearkat Volleyball Golf Scramble fundraiser Saturday April 17 at Raven's Nest Golf Course in Huntsville was a success.

The team of Bill Mitcham, Guy Malden, Garrett Sprott and Keith Certa won the tournament championship with a combined scramble score of 59. Certa also won the "closest to the pin" contest. Frank Krystyniak was the winner in the "longest drive" competition.

"We're giving a great big thank you to our tournament sponsor, Mitcham Industries for another successful golf tournament fundraiser," Sam Houston head coach Brenda Gray said. "In our third year, we raised the most money which goes directly to augmenting our budget, had the most teams of four (13), and 52 hole sponsors.  Congratulations to all the winners.

"We would also like to especially thank SHSU Rec Sports for donating items for our goodie bags for all participants, Raven Nest Golf club for hosting the event and the University Hotel Café for the delicious food.  Many additional thanks to all of our sponsors and donors - we couldn't have had as much success without all of their tremendous support.  We look to continue this growth each and every year in the spring!"
