Hawk Hackers Hit The Golf Course

Blue Hawks, eagles and birdies were the order of the day in July when more than 100 friends, colleagues and former Dickinson State athletics picked up the sticks for 18 holes of good, bad and ugly scramble golf at Riverwood Golf Course in Bismarck.

For the first time, the Dickinson State University Heritage Foundation golf tournament field was full, with 128 players on the course raising money for the Dick Keller Annual Scholarship. The tournament raised roughly $1,000 in donations, many of those made the day of the event. The day concluded with a social and dinner at the Bismarck Elks Lodge #1199.

The team of Harold Hammeren, Devin Schirado, Jake DeForest and Jim DeForest blew through the tree-lined par-72 course at 22-under and won custom coolers. One shot behind at 21-under was the team of Rick Kuhn, Ed Dressler, Mike Stumpf and Tim Hovet, each of whom received camping rocking chairs.

Other prize-winning teams:

8. Derek Selvig, Mike Dahl, Daryl Splichal, Sagan Osbourne

(golf towels and glass beer cup).

12. Guy Fridley, Paxton Fridley, Cory Bittner, Grant Bittner

(40-ounce tumbler and ceramic mug).

16. James Lorenz, Chuck Smith, Doug Haugtvedt, Cal Wandrey

(custom DSU dice sets).

21. Rob Lighthizer, Randy Schwartz, Bob Fischer, Robbie Voigt

(limited edition picture).

27. Pete Stanton, Eric Boettcher, Brian Zubke, Kerry Oberlander

(DSU hat, DSU cards, DSU glass cups).

The team of Hank Biesiot, Susan Biesiot, Scooter Pursley and Tyson Springer finished last – perhaps from shooting from the wrong tees – to earn cheese balls, DSU socks and DSU ties).

Other awards:

· Closest to the pin - Gary Malkowski

(DSU barbecue set)

· Longest putt - Todd Fischer

(Coolers with DSU beers)

· Longest drive - Mike Parke

(DSU water bottle, 40-ounce tumbler, ceramic mug)
