Annual Golf Scramble Brings Community Together For Noble Cause

Nov 20, 2019 03:47PM ● By News Desk

For many in Acadiana, Friday, November 15, 2019 started out as an ordinary crisp, sunny day. But for the golfers playing in Westminster Christian Academy’s 22nd Annual Golf Scramble, it was a day of honor, food, fellowship, and great golf all while supporting a good and noble cause. The event, which was held at the Wetlands Golf Course in Lafayette, tied a bow on Veteran’s Day week with a color guard presentation and bugle performance of all of the songs from each of the branches of the military honoring veterans in attendance. 

Two Westminster Christian Academy high school students led in the National Anthem before the players hit the links. The scramble format was enhanced by some prize holes including a longest drive contest, closest to the hole, and great food throughout the day.

The top teams included;

1st place "NET" – TWFG Insurance, with a NET score of 56.

   > Team members: Dusty Olivier, Kim Smith, Robert Romero, and Nathaniel Cazadessus

1st place "GROSS" – Con Pac South, with a GROSS score of 56.

  > Team members: Ryan Ruggiere, Lewis Ashbey, Dustin Bertrand, and Colby Duhon

2nd place “NET” – Mastec.

   > Team members: Michael Lacroix, Rene Caldera, Lance Hardin, and Randy Menard

3rd place “NET” – Ville Platte Iron Works.

   > Team members: Nick Manuel, Bergis Smith, Ted Scott, and Brian Miller

All proceeds go toward the superior education and transformative opportunities built on a biblical foundation offered through Westminster Christian Academy. WCA has two K-12th grade campuses – one in Lafayette and one in Opelousas. The vision of Westminster Christian Academy is “Students equipped for lives of significance.” They are committed to helping students combat bad ideas with truth as they prepare for the next steps God has for them.
