A field of 180 golfers participated at the 2020 DeSales Alumni Golf Scramble held at beautiful Quail Chase Golf Course on Saturday, August 8.

The team of Ryan Crowdis ‘05, Jacob Adams ‘05, Jeremy Adams ‘06, and Stefan Harpe ‘05 was victorious with a score of 58 (-14) after a scorecard playoff with two other teams. They edged out the team of Chris Stobaugh ‘00, Brad Williams ‘00, Danny Michaels Jr. ‘01, and Dan Michaels Sr. ‘80 and the team of Kevin Cecil ‘72, Anthony Cecil ‘75, Scott Cecil ‘05, Shawn Cecil ‘13, and Jon Cecil.   

Each member of the winning team received a round of golf at Lake Forest Country Club, courtesy of Charlie Tewell ‘80. The second-place team claimed $200 in gift cards to O’Sheas Public House, and the third-place team won a foursome at South Park Country Club, courtesy of Brian Clark ‘05. The team of Blake Watson ‘07, Johnny Wise ‘07, Max Cabe, and Chase Shellman ‘15 finished in the final spot and each took home a sleeve of DeSales logo Taylormade golf balls.

Thank you to our Platinum sponsor the Finn-Hickey Birthday Bash (Jamie Finn ‘75 and Jimmy Hickey ‘75) – and all of our 37 hole sponsors for supporting our scramble. Our scramble would not be possible without their great generosity. All proceeds go to the DeSales Annual Fund, which provides tuition assistance for our students.

Thanks also to Alumni Board of Directors members Brian Clark ’05 and Jamie Finn ’75. Brian was the chair of the 2020 Alumni Golf Scramble and was instrumental in securing many new sponsors and attending to the details and logistics of the event again this year. Jamie recruited new and former sponsors as well. Brian and Jamie were at the golf course all day to ensure all ran smoothly.

Additionally, thanks to Quail Chase Golf Course PGA Club Professional Randy Miller, Assistant Pro Tommy Watts, and their staff for hosting the scramble and to the volunteers who assisted with check-in.
