Back the Berg Golf Outing a rousing success

TIFFIN – Heavy rain stayed away long enough for 27 teams to compete in the H-Association's 12th annual Back the Berg Golf Outing on Friday. Through golf, sponsorships and silent auction, the event raised nearly $17,500 for Heidelberg's student-athletes.

Team 7A – Troy Felter, Jimmy Williams, Kevin Scully and athletic director Matt Palm – took home top honors. The group carded a 16-under 56, winning the outing by two strokes. They edged out a foursome of Palm's former baseball players – Matt Decker, Steve Decker, Matt Grassley and Alex Rutter.

Team 14A – Chad Fitzgerald, Jimmy Roesinger, Morgan Shriver and Dan Hartsel – won both the team putting and team chipping contest.

Kayela Tidrick won the longest drive, Gregg Mossing claimed the closest to the pin and Frank Mastroianni picked up the prize for the longest putt.
