19th Annual Saint Francis Golf Tournament and Tennis Round Robin Recap

golf logo final_correctedROur 19th Annual Saint Francis Golf and Tennis Tournament was held Monday, September 28th at the Polo Golf and Country Club and a faint strain of  “Soggy Bottom Blues” could be heard in the distance.  Unfortunately the weather just didn’t hold and although it put a damper on the tennis portion of the day, our golfers braved the rain and forged ahead.  We were able to have a full field of golfers participate and complete their 18 holes.

In spite of the weather a good time was had by all and our heartfelt thanks to everyone who participated, volunteered, and sponsored this event. With everyone’s support we were able to raise funds benefiting out athletic programs.
