VESTAL, N.Y.—The Binghamton University Athletic Club (BUAC) hosted its 24th annual golf tournament at the Links at Hiawatha Landing on Thursday. The goal of the event was to raise money for the general scholarship fund and over 230 individuals took part in the event. That marks an increase of 40 participants from the 2012 tournament.
The support was just as solid in terms of corporate partners, with nearly 53 organizations sponsoring the event. The major sponsors included Andrew R. Mancini & Associates, Sodexo, Hinman, Howard & Kattell, LeChase Construction, Wells Fargo, Time Warner Cable, Clark Patterson Lee and the Binghamton University Bookstore.
In the morning session, which had a Captain and Crew format, the winning score of 62 was turned in by the team of Jim Grace, Rich Allman, Tom Talbot & Ryan Molter. The afternoon session had a Texas Scramble format, with the quartet of Al Kenderes, Gary Hmurcik, Mike Karl and Armond George repeating as champions.
Founded in 1991, the BUAC is the philanthropic support group made up of alumni, parents, friends, community members, teams, coaches and students who have a deep interest in Binghamton University and its Athletics program. Binghamton University has long been proud of its student-athletes and their many accomplishments – whether they were competing as Colonials or as Bearcats.
The BUAC allows the Athletics Department to provide scholarships to the best and brightest student-athletes, state-of-the-art training equipment, facility and equipment enhancements and funding for the Student-Athlete Success Center that supports our student-athletes’ academic pursuits.
