Perfect day for the 28th Annual Stockbridge Athletics Booster Golf Scramble

by Clyde Whitaker

On July 29, 2022, the 28th annual Stockbridge Athletic Boosters Golf Scramble was held under a picture perfect blue sky at Hankerd Hills Golf Course in Pleasant Lake.

Twenty-seven teams came out to support the orange-and-black. There were men’s and women’s teams, along with a senior division.

It was great seeing a lot of familiar faces there, and Jeremy Killinger deserves a big, big round of applause for organizing the event again this year.  He had assistance from his wife Kim and his son Evan, along with Lissa Avis and a number of other volunteers.

Ernie Rivers—can we still call him the “new” Stockbridge Athletic Director?—was there as well, lending a helping hand and mingling with the players on the course.

The results of the tournament are in and here are some highlights:
