The ninth annual CALS Alumni Organization Scramble for Scholars Golf Tournament was held at the Pete Dye River Course of Virginia Tech on Friday, Oct. 18. Sixty-nine golfers and 12 sponsors helped to raise almost $7,000 for the CALS Alumni Organization Excellence Fund to support experiential learning opportunities for our students.
Five department teams competed: The Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics, the Department of Crop and Soil Environmental Sciences (2 teams), the Department of Dairy Science, and the Department of Plant Pathology, Physiology, and Weed Science. The AAEC team of Steve Blank, Jason Grant, Randy Flinchum, and Jim Overfelt took home the first place prize in the department team competition. Congratulations and thank you to all participants!
Make sure to save the date for next year’s tournament, which will be during fall break.
