June is almost here and that means it’s nearly time for the annual Campbell Scramble.
The sixth annual Campbell Scramble will be played Saturday, June 16, at the Phil Harris Golf Course.
Organizers are seeking four-golfer teams and encourage players to sign up early to ensure their teams will have spots in the tournament. Teams may register by e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org, by calling 202-302-1648, or by going to the Facebook page SLC Scholarship Fund Annual Golf Scramble. Sign-up opportunities will be available at the course as June 16 draws nearer.
A press release said there will be a raffle with plenty of prizes and a complementary lunch for all players.
Sponsors are also needed, the release said, to provide prizes for the raffle and for the golfers. All donations are tax deductible.
The scramble helps fund two scholarships for White River Valley seniors.
It was established in 2013 to honor the memory of Stephen L. Campbell, educator, head coach, principal, and superintendent of the Worthington-Jefferson and WRV high schools.
June 9 will bring the 150th running of the Belmont Stakes, the third and final race of the Triple Crown.
Justify will try to become the 13th horse to win the Triple Crown. The chestnut colt won a quagmire of a Kentucky Derby with a time of 2:04.20. Two weeks later Justify took the Preakness with a time of 1:55.93.
I do hope Justify takes the Triple Crown. I think winning all three races is the toughest feat in professional sports. A horse has to have blazing speed to win the Preakness and stamina to take the Belmont. Not too many horses can combine those, one reason the Triple Crown winners are legendary.
Good luck to the Lakers tomorrow. Hauser is a formidable foe, but so is Shakamak. Let’s hope they get to Victory Field again.
“We wish Shakamak the best of luck,” Bloomfield coach Jason Pegg said Monday night after the Lakers beat Bloomfield in the sectional championship. “They represent Greene County.”
