Cooper Tournament Funds Three Scholarships



The Ninth Annual Rusty Cooper Memorial Scholarship Golf Tournament was a total success. According to Karen Thorton it was the most profitable tournament they ever had. They had a great turnout along with some wonderful weather and a profitable raffle, and because of all that they were able to present three $2,400 scholarships to Payson seniors Casey Christensen, Karis Blalock, and Retosha Marshall.

The winners of the golf tournament were: Best Score Men -- Carl Barker, Best Score Women -- Linda Teasley, Longest Drive Men -- Jerry Thompson, Longest Drive Women -- Laura Kulagoska, Closest to the pin -- Wayne Alvin and Best Golf Attire went to Bubba Babb.


Linda Teasley displays the trophy she won for best women's score in the Rusty Cooper Memorial Golf Tournament last weekend. Larry Boeschling presented the award.
