The WPDE Sports Shootout held its 10th annual golf event at Prestwick Golf Club. 108 golfers took to the links to help raise money for our scholarship fund. This year's tournament raised over $5,000. Mike Bigelow from Wilson High School in Florence is this year's scolarship recipient. Bigelow is heading to Francis Marion where he'll run cross country for the Patriots. His inspirational essay talked about losing his father to a car accident at a young age and his mother's current battle with a rare form of stomach cancer. Through it all, Bigelow played two sports at Wilson and kept great grades. His family was on hand at the post-tournament dinner and was surprised with the news that he'll be receiving $5,000 towards his education.
Coastal Carolina football coach David Bennett's team won first gross with the HTC team taking first net honors.
A special thanks to our main sponsors and Prestwick for helping WPDE's golf tournament continue to thrive. The WPDE Scholarship fund has now distributed $125,000 in college scholarships to area high school seniors.
