Field hockey team holds fundraising golf tournament

Fallbrook High School’s field hockey team, including its off-season Guac Girls squad, held its seventh annual fundraising golf tournament March 19 at the Pala Mesa Resort.

“It went well,” said Kathy Waite, who coaches the high school varsity team and the Guac Girls. “In this economy we did not raise as much as we had in the past, but overall very pleased.”

The tournament included a best ball format competition which was won by Marty Garcia, Doug Paciotti, Dave Scordato, and Brett Woodall. That foursome required 57 strokes. Breck Degroff won the longest drive contest, Leticia Brambila won the women’s longest drive competition, Lance McCune was the top driver in the contest to tee off with a field hockey stick, Randy Souza won the competition for being closest to the pin, Bo Martin won the putting contest, and the Evan Harney Group received the best-dressed golf pants recognition.

The fundraiser also included a dinner with a raffle and auction.

“Pala Mesa did a very nice job,” Waite said.

The field hockey team was able to obtain 60 tee sponsors. “Some wonderful people sponsoring the team,” Waite said.

Brian and Kathy Harney provided platinum sponsorship of the golf tournament. Dr. Clayton Cooke, Minx Nails, and Roberta Savage Attorney at Law were gold sponsors for the golf tournament. Cardinal Pools, Coast Foundations, David Smith, and St. John’s Thrift Shop were silver sponsors. Angel Society of Fallbrook and Paul and Patti Bordas were bronze sponsors.

Proceeds from the golf tournament, dinner, auction, and raffle will be used to cover expenses for the varsity and junior varsity field hockey squads during the CIF season and for the off-season National Field Hockey Festival tournament, Cal Cup tournament, and Winter indoor league. The team cannot officially represent Fallbrook High School outside of the CIF field hockey season, and without the ability to call themselves the Warriors the team has adopted the name Guac Girls for tournaments and other play.
