South Dakota Athletics to host golf scramble at Hillcrest In an effort to raise money for scholarships, the South Dakota Athletics Department will sponsor a three-person golf scramble at the Hillcrest Country Club in Yankton on Wednesday, June 22, at 1 p.m. Registration will be at noon.
The golf scramble will be the fifth of 12 fund-raising golf events that will be hosted by USD this spring and summer. These fund raisers will help support athletic scholarships which are needed to recruit, retain and educate outstanding student-athletes at USD.
Several USD coaches will participate, including head football coach Ed Meierkort, head basketball coach Dave Boots, head women's basketball coach Chad Lavin and track and field director Dave Gottsleben.
"We hope people from the area can come out and say hello to our coaches and visit with us about Coyote Athletics. The success of our students-athletes in both academics and athletics at USD has been extraordinary. We are very proud of their efforts," said USD Athletics Director Joel Nielson.
The cost of the scramble is $60 per person and covers 18 holes of golf with a cart and a meal (meal-only $15).
