Tee It Up for Hoops Concludes with Successful Day
June 12, 2014
MILWAUKEE--It was another successful year for Marquette women's basketball's annual Tee It Up for Hoops Gold Outing on Tuesday. This year's event featured some new faces as first-year head coach Carolyn Kieger and her staff was introduced to the program's supporters.
The event was held at The Legend at Bristlecone in Hartland, Wis. and helped raise funds to directly support MU women's basketball.
"I am so thankful for everyone that came out and supported our program," Kieger said. "It was great to see old and new faces. My staff and I are thrilled to continue to build on the foundation that has been laid here at Marquette. The outing was a prime example of the family atmosphere that Marquette embodies. We look forward to building on this event and bringing many more followers and supporters into our family."
The day featured a shot-gun start, a par-3 challenge and prizes for the longest and shortest drives at various holes on the course. Along with Kieger, assistant coaches Ginny Boggess, Vernette Skeete and Scott Merritt were stationed around the course with current players to meet and talk with everyone in attendance.
Following a full day of golf, participants enjoyed a buffet lunch and live auction by the voice of Marquette basketball, Steve "The Homer" True.
