The 10th Annual Day of Clays Event presented by TRANE was the most successful shoot yet. On Saturday, October 2nd, over $110,000 was raised with all proceeds directly aimed at supporting Pensacola State College students and programs.
“As we emerge through this pandemic, our ongoing support for students continues to be of the utmost importance,” said Andrea Krieger, Executive Director of the Foundation. All proceeds benefit PSC students through the Fund for Excellence.
At the Santa Rosa Shooting Center in Pace, more than 140 shooters of all ages, representing 39 teams, competed at the event. First-place teams from two courses were recognized.
Earning First Place Team honors on the Red Course was Elite Mechanical and First Place Team honors on the Green Course went to Nordic Healthcare.
First Place Men and Ladies Individual shooters on the Red Course were Michael Solliday and Lindsey Engel. Green Course winners were Casey Roberts and Diane Beckworth.
Junior First Place on the Red Course was Grant Norris and the honors went to Clinton Green on the Green Course.
Overall Shooting Honors, those who participated without the use of mulligans, went to Eric Hanssen on the Red Course and David Snyder on the Green Course.
Winners will be recognized on the newly established Day of Clays Trophy which will be proudly displayed in the Foundation office.
