12th Annual Bishop Dunne Golf Classic the Best One Yet!
A cloudy morning became a beautiful sunny afternoon on Monday, April 6, 2015, at Stevens Park Golf Course, where the 12th Annual Bishop Dunne Golf Classic was held.
A record group of 28 foursomes signed up to play, and all enjoyed the newly renovated course located in Oak Cliff. A 9:00 a.m. shotgun start began the tournament which included a round of golf, breakfast and lunch, Hole-in-One prize of 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage donated by Don Herring Mitsubishi in Oak Cliff, and prizes for the top three golf teams.
Donations from many parents of Bishop Dunne students were made into gift baskets for the silent auction, thanks to the work of Cindy Jones and the Hospitality Committee. We wish to thank all our parents, students, alumni, and faculty who played in the tournament to support Bishop Dunne students and programs.
The winning foursome, with a score of 54, included: Kevin Wolff, Scott Bixel, Kris Fralicks and Wes Worster.
Coming in second place with a score of 55 was the team of Danny Bollinger, David McGoodwin, Larry Rolle and Ivan Sparkman.
Coming in third place with an average score of 57 was Larry Milton, Russ Chappel and David Govea.
Funds from the Golf Classic help to pay tuition for deserving students at Bishop Dunne.
Bishop Dunne will host Legends from another sport – football – on April 29, 2015 at AT&T Cowboy’s Stadium. Roger Staubach, Bob Lilly, Preston Pearson and “Mean” Joe Greene will be honored with a cocktail reception, dinner and a “fireside chat” moderated by The Ticket’s popular sportscaster Craig Miller, a graduate of Bishop Dunne. Co-hosts for the evening are two more NFL Legends: John Wooten and Pettis Norman, whose grandson Alex Norman graduated from the school in 2011 and is now playing football for the University of Texas in Austin.
