Golfers Weather 100 holes for Catawba College Athletics

Seventeen golfers played 100 holes of golf on Monday, September 13 all in the name of the Catawba College Athletic Department. The Catawba 100, which began about nine years ago, sets golfers to gather sponsors who will financially support their effort of completing 100 golf holes at the McCanless Golf Course.Catawba 100 Event Coordinator Bill Pieczynski says the group of men and women consisted of Catawba coaches and staff as well as friends and alumni of the college. The proceeds from the event go to support various athletic teams’ budgets as well as specific projects. One example of such project support is in funding the college’s installation of a new timing system for the Johnson Aquatic Center at the Goodman Gymnasium on campus. Catawba’s Director of Athletics Dennis Davidson notes that this fund raising event is an important aspect to the success of Catawba’s athletic department since costs to fund the institution’s 17 varsity sports teams continue to rise. Last year’s Catawba 100 raised nearly $26,000, but Pieczynski notes that this year’s event is projected to raise in excess of $30,000. “This is the largest single day fund raiser for the Catawba’s Athletic Department, and it’s the golfers and their sponsors who we have to thank!” This year’s golfers included: Dennis Davidson, Tom Childress, Chip Hester, Jeff Childress, Rudy Busby, Eric Nianouris, Jim Baker, Bob Casmus, Bill Pieczynski, Norman Hodges, Dave VanAken, Ron Shelton, Kevin Keiger, Craig Turnbull, Betsy Graham, Trent Newell and Jerry Maye.
