“QUINN” GOLFERS PAR FOR THE COURSE

The Lt. Michael P. Quinn Scholarship Committee would like to extend their heartfelt appreciation to the 128 golfers who participated in their 22nd annual tournament. The Quinn scholarship was established in September of 1969 in honor of U.S. Marine Corps Lt. Michael P. Quinn who was killed-in-action in Vietnam on August 29, 1969, and awarded a Purple Heart and Bronze Star for his heroism. An outstanding football linebacker and hockey defenseman, Michael was inducted into both the Boston Latin High School and College of the Holy Cross Hall of Fame. To date, nearly $180,000 in scholarships have been awarded to 49 noteworthy “Townie” scholar athletes looking to pursue a college degree.

Some of the outstanding linksters in the 2017 golf tourney included:

1st PLACE (Men) — Bernie Doherty

2nd PLACE (Men) — Brian McCabe

1st PLACE (Women) — Lynn Anthony

CLOSEST TO PIN (Men) — Dennis Costin

CLOSEST TO PIN (Women) — Helen Crestalde

LONGEST DRIVE (Men) — Hugh Curran

LONGEST DRIVE (Women) — Jennifer Rauch
