• Golf Tournament Honors Andy Collier '98

  • Forty golfers hit the links in the Andy Collier ’98 Memorial Golf Tournament at the Castine Golf Club on Sunday, June 2.

         The tournament “honored our loving memory of Andy Collier, whom we lost too soon,” said Peter Collier ’00, Andy’s brother. “Andy was a special person, an avid golfer and a key contributor to the Eagles’ first-ever Penobscot Valley Conference golf championship in 1998.”

         Peter Collier, Erik Fitch ’99, Amanda Ashe Look ’00, Toby Cole ’00 and Simeon Allen ’01 make up the tournament board that organized the event.

         The tournament “raised fun,” said Fitch, with numerous prizes donated by local sponsors given out at each hole, including one for “closest to the flamingo” and another at a marshmallow driving competition.

         The goal of the event was to involve former student athletes and others in generating financial support for George Stevens Academy’s athletics programs through the GSA Sports Alumni Fund recently established by Fitch and Collier. The board plans to make this an annual tournament and to create other events to support the fund.

         Overall tournament winners were Peter Collier, Nick Malinowski ’98, Zach Davies ’00 and Tim Tunney.

         Thank you to the organizers, volunteers, and everyone who took part in the first event of what we hope is a long and successful series of "fun raisers" to bring alumni together and support our Eagles!
