Annual Golf Tournament and Scholarships Recognize Steward Athletics

The Spartan Club raised money to benefit Steward Athletics through an annual golf tournament, awarded senior athletes for dedication to athletics and academics.

Monday, October 17 was an incredible day for Steward Athletics. 80 golfers and 33 sponsors participated in the annual Ray Tate Spartan Golf Classic at Hermitage Country Club. The event raised a net amount of more than $37,000 for the Spartan Club to benefit Steward’s athletic programs, matching last year’s record. In addition, Steward parent Steve Thomas hit a hole in one! He and his wife, Donna, are the new owners of a 2016 Toyota Tundra Courtesy of McGeorge Toyota!

On Steward’s campus, the recipients of the Ray Tate Student-Athlete Scholarship were announced during community time. This year’s winners are seniors Alex Jobe, Mary Ann Neale, and Summer Owens. Students were selected based on their outstanding contributions to Steward Athletics and school life.

Mary Ann, who plays varsity volleyball and soccer, said: “The award is important to me because I’ve always taken athletics very seriously. I’ve also always looked up to the award recipients in the past. As a freshman, I remember seeing them get the award, and I was so excited to be on the same team as them. Now, being a recipient is such a huge honor for me."

Summer, who plays varsity soccer and cross country, said: “I’m really honored to get this award because athletics and academics are a really huge part of my life. I’ve always looked up to past recipients and wanted to be like them. I’m so happy I have the opportunity to set an example for younger students to strive every day to do their best in athletics and academics.”

Alex, who plays varsity baseball, varsity swimming, and JV basketball, said: “This award means all of my hard work has paid off academically and athletically, and I’m so honored to receive this acknowledgement.”
