The Youngstown State women's basketball enjoyed another day of beautiful weather and outstanding fellowship at the program's annual golf outing at Knoll Run on Aug. 27.
Mike Larocca's foursome fired a low round of 55, which was 17-under par, to win the men's competition. The Power Management team finished one shot behind with the second-lowest round of the day. Women's basketball alumna Ann Marie Martin led a foursome that won the women's division with a 62, and Jack Colonna's group finished one shot back in second place. The Greenwood Chevrolet foursome took the top prize in the mixed division at 14-under, and the "Joe" Dickey Electric foursome finished second at 12-under.
The Power Management group also won the skin on the 17th hole with an eagle, and Earl Trimmer's group scored a three on the par-5 12th hole to win that skin.
Longest drive honors on the fourth hole went to Derek Knepper in the men's division, Angela Molasky in the women's division and Rick Houston in the seniors' division. Houston also won closest-to-the-pin honors on the fifth hole, Marylynn Woods was closest to the pin on the ninth green and Tim Bailey was closest on the 11th hole. Dave Washington made the longest putt on the eighth hole.
