Seamster Golf Tournament to be Held October 18
LYNCHBURG, VA – The sixth-annual John P. Seamster '92 Memorial Golf Tournament is scheduled to be held be held Friday, October 18, 2013 at the London Downs Golf Course in Forest, VA. All proceeds will go towards the Hornet baseball program.
Since the fall of 2008, the John P. Seamster '92 Memorial Golf Tournament has been held as a special occasion to remember and celebrate John's life, as well as raise support for the Lynchburg College baseball program – a sport he dearly loved and played while a student at LC.
"For us, the Seamster Golf Tournament is very important to the quality and success of our baseball program. Proceeds generated by the golf tournament help us to stay at the highest level possible by allowing us to provide equipment and gear to our players, upgrade facilities, and travel to play high-quality competition," baseball head coach Percy Abell said.
"The difference in our program pre-Seamster tournament versus post-Seamster is dramatic! We have been able to stay nationally ranked, compete at a higher level, and draw quality athletes to our program. Without the Seamster Golf Tournament, we would not be able to do any of the things that we currently do and provide for our program. I cannot stress how important this Tournament is to our baseball program and how much your participation and contributions are appreciated as they directly affect each Lynchburg College baseball player."
The cost is $95 for an individual or $380 for a team. It is a shotgun start, captains' choice event and includes lunch, prizes and an update on the LC baseball program. Sponsorships are also welcome.
