The Greater Hampton Roads Duke Club - Robert E. Plecker Golf Tournament was held Thursday, May 20, at Virginia Beach National Golf Club in Virginia Beach, VA. JMU Coaches Kyle Gillenwater (Football) and Antoinette Lucas (Field Hockey) joined up with JMU fans in the Hampton Roads area for a day out on the golf course. The event successfully brought in over $1,500 for student-athlete scholarships and the general operating budget.
The day ended with a catered dinner by the VB National staff and an auction featuring items such as a Mickey Matthews autographed football helmet and a Homecoming Football package for the October 16 football game against the University of New Hampshire Wildcats.
Be on the lookout for other upcoming Duke Club events in the Greater Hampton Roads area. The JMU Football Kickoff will be taking place Thursday, July 29th and the 2nd annual JMU Rockfish Shootout will be taking place in early December. Stay tuned for more details.
