A Classic Day for Golf and Pickleball

More than 80 attendees enjoyed a beautiful day at the Alumni Association's 48th Annual McDonogh Classic on Monday, May 13. While golfers participated in 18 holes of scramble-style competition, pickleball players paired up for beginner and advanced tournaments.  

Held simultaneously at Woodholme Country Club, the two tournaments raised funds for the Alumni Association and their efforts to support the School community. The day ended with golfers and picklers coming together for a buffet luncheon, awards ceremony, and delicious treats from The Cow food truck. A heartfelt thank you to our generous sponsors.
