Elizabeth City State University Athletics sponsored the Inaugural Golf Tournament
on July 18, 2014 that was hosted by The Pines Country Club of Elizabeth City. The
goal was to raise $10,000 for Athletic and Golf Scholarships, which was accomplished.
The golf tournament attracted 81 golfers that equated to 27 three-person teams. To
further show strong business and local support for the tournament, there were 52 hole
sponsors and more than 20 businesses and individuals that donated more than $4,000.
The planning committee consisted of the following 16 people:
Lin Dawson, Co-Chair/Director of Athletics
Lavern Jones, Co-Chair, ECSCU Golf Coach
Jeanette Evans, President-National Alumni Association
David Mascitti, of The Pines-Golf Pro
Rick Durren, of Biggs Pontiac
Linda Hughes, Friend of the University
Dale Horn, of Golden Corral
Jeff Dixon , of City Beverage Company

Jennifer Priest, ECSU Institutional Advancement staff
Ruth Williams, ECSU Cheerleading Coach
Kim Owen, of Comfort Inn & Suites
Owen Hassell, sports reporter with The Daily Advance

The first, second, and third place teams received gift certificates that totaled $750.
In addition, we issued $200 in gift certificates to the longest drive and closest
to the pin for men and women.
The Rev. Glen Sawyer provided our invocation and provided by Chancellor Charles Becton
greeted the crowd and commended them for their support of the university. We were
delighted to present two members of the ECSU Golf Team as a part of the tournament.
Alston Meads, who is a sophomore at ECSU, and Tyler Futrell, a fall 2014 freshman,
participated. The ECSU Foundation, the ECSU Viking Varsity Club and the National Alumni
Association strongly supported the event. The Athletics Department greatly appreciates
all the participants and
