Brother Rice held their annual Foundation Golf Outing at Beverly Country Club on Monday, August 29, 2016. Coaches, faculty, and staff participated in this fun event that not only featured a full round of golf but also a lunch and dinner that followed.
The cost of the outing was $500 with all proceeds going to the Brother Rice Foundation, which is committed to raising significant funds to keep tuition affordable and to ensure the long-term success of Brother Rice High School. All Foundation Golf Outing caddies were experienced Brother Rice students. The event lasted roughly seven hours starting at 11:00 A.M.
Students with prior caddying experience were allowed to participate. Junior Mike McShane, who caddied for Director of Admissions Tim O’Connell, shared his thoughts on the outing: “It was a fun day; it looked like the golfers enjoyed it, and I know I did,” said McShane. McShane plans to be a caddy again next year. Luckily, the weather cooperated nicely, and the golf outing proved to be a success.
Tryouts for the 2016 Brother Rice golf team will be held beginning on August 10, 11, and 12 at the Meadows Golf Club.
Please email Coach Albanese with any questions. We look forward to seeing you on the course.
