SHERIDAN — There’s still plenty of space open in the annual Sheridan High School Booster Club “Shootout Scramble” at the Powder Horn Golf Course.
The scramble will be held Saturday, beginning at noon with a shotgun start, and in an effort to fill the tournament field golfers are asked to register with the Powder Horn. Sheridan High School athletic director Don Julian asked that anyone wishing to partipate sign up as soon as possible.
One of the entity’s key fundraisers, the club raises money through this tournament, the wallet-sized schedules at businesses around town, student-sold sports calendars and 50/50 raffles at games to support SHS programs.
“The club’s mission remains the same as it was in those early days; it is dedicated to providing for the needs of the student athletes and the Pep band at Sheridan High School,” reads a press release from the club.
The club also runs a “Hardship Fund” to help athletes who may not be able to afford shoes or other equipment. Through the booster club, new team uniforms are purchased on a rotating cycle, and other equipment is provided equally throughout the 14 varsity teams at the school.
In addition, the booster club is now pushing a new athlete-safety program which includes all students participating in contact sports being tested through the program “Impact.” Athletic trainers are able to moniter pre-and post-cognitive function for athletes who suffered concussions. Money raised at this weekend’s tournament goes in large part to support the salary of the SHS athletic trainer.
Entry fee for the scramble is $100 per person. A post-tournament dinner will be held at the clubhouse, and non-golfers wishing to attend can do so for $25.
