Mount Marty College Golf Classic a Success Once Again

Published Date5\17\2013
Mount Marty College held their 29th annual golf classic May 15, 2013 at Hillcrest Country Club in Yankton, SD. More than 30 teams participated in the event and beautiful weather set the stage for a great day of golf followed by an awards ceremony and dinner sponsored by First National Bank South Dakota.

The Men's Division was won by Adam Walsh, Mark Yonke, Jon Cooke and Aaron Hansen with a score of 56. The runner-up foursome consisted of Jeff Wolfgram, Denny Fokken, Matt Tereshinski and Steve Weiland with a score of 57.

In the Women's Division, Lori Ibarolle, Yvonne Slowey, Jenny Dietrich and Sandy Brandt won with a score of 68. Peggy Frank, Lynette Bruening, Penny Porter and Hannah Withrow were runners-up after winning a scorecard playoff with a score of 70.

A volunteer planning committee with community members Lynette Bruening, Peggy Frank, James Grotenhuis, Bruce Teachout and Adam Walsh was essential to this year's success.

MMC Golf Classic organizer and Director of Annual Giving, Shannon Viereck, is excited about the day's success. "Mount Marty College is so fortunate to have community members, alumni, and business partners that come out each year to support the College. This is a wonderful event, and we look forward to enhancing the classic each year going forward."

One major enhancement for the classic this year was the inclusion of four high-value raffle prizes. They included golf at The Prairie Club in Valentine, Neb., an iPad and iPod touch sponsored by CorTrust Bank, a top notch date night in Sioux Falls, and a recreation package including a kayak and mountain bike donated by John A. Conkling Distributing.

Proceeds from the annual event provide support for student scholarships, academic resources and campus improvements at Mount Marty College.
