Register now for PAA Golf Tournament, May 23

PORT ANGELES – Peninsula College supporters will have the opportunity to fund scholarships and play golf at the Pirate Athletic Association Golf Tournament, set for Friday, May 23 at The Cedars at Dungeness Golf Course.

“We rely on community donations and sponsorships to fund our athletic scholarships and this event will help us accomplish that, but it also provides a great time for golfers of all abilities,” Ross said. “Coach Freeman and Coach Harrison are working with Jerry Allen and the staff at Seven Cedars Casino and The Cedars at Dungeness to put together a first class event.”

Mitch Freeman and Fred Harrison, men’s basketball coaches are Peninsula, are the Tournament Directors.

The tournament will be a scramble format with a shotgun start at 1:00. It will feature prizes for low gross, low net, long drive, closest to the pin, as well as draw prizes. It will also feature lunch on the course, a meal after the round and a brief prize ceremony.

“Mitch and Fred are working hard to put together a full field of golfers and they’re looking for individual and corporate sponsors to really make it a success,” Ross said. “The success we have on the soccer field and basketball court really depends on how we do with our fundraising events. I truly hope the community will support this.”

The tournament offers opportunities for business owners to be hole sponsors, and to enter teams. Sponsor packages start at $250. The entry fee for individual golfers is $100.

To inquire about sponsoring the event, or playing in the event, please contact Freeman at 360-417-6467. Players can also register for the event on line at www.brownpapertickets.com under “Pirate golf.”

Casino Night pays off big for athletic scholarships

PORT ANGELES - Peninsula College supporters came out in force to support Pirate Casino Night, one of Peninsula College's signature athletic fund raising events, Feb. 21 at Seven Cedars Casino.

Headlining the evening was a comedy show featuring national touring comedian Sammy Obeid. The evening also featured a presentation by former Pirate soccer standout Miguel Gonzalez, who is completing his senior year at Seattle University and looking ahead to a professional soccer career, as well as an introduction to Pirate coaches, a very successful silent auction, and some friendly gaming.

"Mitch Freeman and his staff, in conjunction with the Peninsula College Foundation, did an outstanding job with this event," Director of Athletics Rick Ross said. "It all started with a very generous offer from Jerry Allen and Seven Cedars Casino to host the event - and they really rolled out the red carpet. It was first class. We were able to double or triple the revenue from the first Pirate Casino Night. This event can only grow and help us raise even more scholarship money in the future."

PC Inducts Team, 4 individuals into Hall of Fame

PORT ANGELES -The 1970 Peninsula College men’s basketball team, which was led by Bernie Fryer, who had a successful career as an official and a player in the NBA, headlined the first inductees into the newly formed Peninsula College Athletics Hall of Fame at a ceremony held January17, at the Bushwhacker Restaurant.

In addition to the Washington Athletic Association of Community Colleges championship team, the first inductees also included the late Arthur Feiro, the late Dr. Wally Sigmar, Kathy Murphy-Carey and Jerry Allen.

“This is something we’ve been talking about for some time,” said Director of Athletics Rick Ross. “We haven’t had a facility before where we could properly house a Hall of Fame, but our new gymnasium foyer lends itself perfectly to that. I’m honored and thrilled that this is finally happening.”

Peninsula College also collaborated with the Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges to dually induct the 1970 basketball team. Fryer was inducted into the NWAACC Hall of Fame as an individual in 1992, but the entire team went in at the ceremony on Friday. Feiro was previously inducted into the NWAACC Hall of Fame in 1989, and Dr. Sigmar in 1995.
