Event also raises an all-time best of roughly $50,000

JONESBOROUGH, Tenn. (May 5, 2014) – An event-record 136 participants enjoyed a day on the links while also raising an all-time tournament high of roughly $50,000 to support the Buccaneer Athletic Scholarship Association on a gorgeous Monday during the 2014 BASA All-Sport Golf Tournament presented by AT&T at the Blackthorn Club at The Ridges.

BASA – the Buccaneer Athletic Scholarship Association – has hosted this unique tournament for 11-consecutive years in an effort to meet the needs of ETSU’s student-athletes. This year, the tournament will net roughly $50,000 to support the scholarship fund; an all-time record in the 11-year history of the event.

“I want to thank all of the participants today for their investment in our student-athletes and their welfare,” said Matt McGahey, ETSU’s assistant to the athletic director for special projects. “This event is a great opportunity each year to engage our donors and Bucs fans from throughout the region as well as share with them the exciting things that are happening at ETSU and in the athletic department.”

The tournament, which was held at the beautiful Blackthorn Club at The Ridges, is one of the most unique charitable events in the region. Each year, the BASA Tournament features outstanding team prizes, registration gifts, hole prizes, and a post-event dinner. Proceeds from the tournament help fund scholarships for ETSU’s student-athletes.

In addition, the tournament provides an opportunity to spend the day with ETSU coaches, staff and other special guests.

Four different participation levels are offered to play in the tournament, which range from $500 to $5,000. Along with the golf, food and opportunity to win hole prizes, each participant received a $250 Nike gift certificate which was valid at the on-site mobile store.
