(Oct. 30, 2012) -- One hundred twelve UTSA students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends came together Friday, Oct. 19 to participate in the annual UTSA Homecoming Golf Tournament hosted at Silverhorn Golf Club in San Antonio.
The tournament coincides with a collection of other homecoming and game-day programs aimed to strengthen student, faculty, staff, alumni and community relationships and create bonds to The University of Texas at San Antonio. The money raised from the event assists students employed at Campus Recreation to attend national and regional conferences and workshops, which further their education and give them exposure to the fields of leadership development, university recreation, higher education, fitness and wellness, facility management, intramural and club sports, and marketing and outdoor recreation.
"I just wanted to thank you again for putting on such a great tournament! I play a few each year, and the UTSA one is the most well run and fun. Y'all do a great job," said UTSA alumnus Brian Kendall.
Congratulations to Luke Healy, J.R. Camahan, Kaden Duncan and Dustin Martin for shooting a 55 to win the tournament, as well as Closest to the Pin winners Kristen Kline and Ryan Lackey, and Longest Drive winners Laura Munroe and Mark Miller.
Special thanks go to UTSA Athletic Director Lynn Hickey for her opening remarks, as well as the UTSA Campus Recreation staff, the student organization volunteers from Pro-Rec and Men of Honor, and the organizations and businesses that made this tournament a success: Quality Hardwood Floors, Matera Paper Co., Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Sprint, Crown Trophy, UTSA Athletics, UTSA Bookstore, CC Creations, Alamo Tees, Mission Restaurant Supply, Hillyard Inc., Rialto Jewelry, DAP Construction, Edwin Watts, Frost Bank at UTSA, Dixon Golf and the Silverhorn Golf Club.
